I wonder why the tourism agency is not so fond of promoting this wonderful island. Although it gets its share of tourists, Redang deserves more attention for its extensive white sand beach, amazing underwater life (best for snorkeling and diving), and world class resorts.

basically, there are 2 sides of redang. the main beach is where all the party and 'happening' people go to. the other side would be the people looking to get their divers licence and family outings. the resort prices are slightly different where the main side is slightly more expensive. lunch and dinner are usually provided in the accommodation package...

Clean sea, nice view. If you like swimming, snorkeling or diving, you must visit this island for sure. I had been to Krabi in Thailand, Tioman in Malaysia, Langkawi in Malaysia, Bali in Indonesia. I still think Redang island is better than other island I had been to.

There are no other words to describe it! I'm from England but have lived in Asia for 3 years now and haven't come across a nicer place than Redang! The beaches, the hotels and people are all gorgeous!

Crystal clear blue water, white soft powdery sandy beac, surrounded by beautiful mountains. Great for a relaxing, family gathering or romantic holidays. Must go for the snorkelling trip. The deep ocean world is majestic.

Untouched nature, not so many tourists, very private. Water is crystal clear and abundance of fish is just amazing.

Redang Island is a fantastic island but not internationaly known and commercialise. However, from my experience the beaches, water and marine life ( snorkeling experience) are much better than Koh Samui, Phuket, Krabi, pulau Tioman and Kota Kinabalu marine park. There are a few spots for great snorkeling with colorful fishes and amazing life coral. The water is so clear... More

Just back from Redang after short vacation with the kids and the wife. This, by far has been the best beach holiday and the place is so beautiful. Blue sky, white sands and clear water and it's all over the place ;-) Stayed at Laguna Redang Resort (another review on it) and we probably did the right thing for this... More

The sand of the beach was fine like flour. The sea was calm like a mirror. Colorful fishes even could be spotted just in front of the beach. The blue sky was clear and sunny in the month of June.
