The most common word exclaimed by first time visitors to Pulau Redang (Redang Island) has to be “paradise”.
How clear is the water? See it for yourself.
You may not believe that I saw these coral fish in waist deep water.
Still don’t believe, let’s see it from the bird eye view.
We were the first batch of tourists arrived at the island (9:15am). We have the entire beach by ourselves. Our happy moments were soon shared by boats load of tourists (or I have to specifically said tourists from China).
I see more tourists from China than European in almost every place I visited in the last 2 years. Anyway, back to the marine park. You can arrange with any resort you stay in Redang for snorkelling or island hopping. Marine Park is one of the popular spot, great snorkelling site for children.
How to I describe Pulau Redang? It is tropical paradise.
Pulau Redang is merely 45 minutes boat ride from Merang, or 1.5 hours from Kuala Terengganu (bigger ferry and less bumpy ride), or you can take Berjaya Air by aeroplane. The marine park is a tiny island 5 minutes by boat from the main jetty.
