“Beautiful island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Beautiful beaches, white sand and blue crystal clear water. Still authentic, not over crowded yet. Marine life is very rich too, paradise for divers!

“3rd time visiting. More commercialized than the previous two times.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Redang have already lost it's out of the way excursion and became a full-fledged tourist location. Back in 2003 when i first visited, there were very few resorts and very few guests.

After it's reputation being boosted by a blockbuster movie and word of mouth, it flourished and now you can even walk around on a cement pavement down the beach without getting sand on your feet.

It still lives up as a beautiful island but already slightly polluted by tourism. A great deal of conservation is required by the Resorts if they want to preserve it back to it's pristine, untouched beauty.

“The beach is far superior than Phuket, Bali, Tioman etc”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Choose to stay at the Long Beach ( more happening and beautiful) than Berjaya side (quiet but less attractive, can be boring at night)

“White Sand and Blue Sea Water, Very Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

7th September 2012, we went to Redang Island by Star Virgo Cruise. After one night sailing, we reached the island at noon. The sea water is very clear and the beach is very beautiful. Though spending only 3 hours on the beach under the sun, my husband and kids love it.

Had great and enjoyable trip to Pulau Redang where you can actually see lots of water creatures such Nemos,baby sharks,jelly fish etc...most of all is the awesomeness of the clear blue sea...worth it!
