Redang Island, Malaysia
Pulau Redang is an island which lies about 45 km off the coast of Terengganu state in Malaysia. It is one of nine islands, which form a marine park. Redang Island is famous for its crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches, and the tropical fish that inhabit the numerous reefs, many within 50 feet of the shore.
This paradise-like island is perfect for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving, jungle trekking, fishing, boating, and canoeing. Until recently, accommodation has been in the form of chalets, but if you are keen on luxury, an international class hotel had just opened its doors.
