Redang Island is one of the largest island off the east coast of Malaysia. Together with nine other island they form the marine park. White sandy beach, crystal clear water and brilliant underwater world make Redang a major tourist attraction during the month of March till October, thousand of visitor from local and oversea flooded Redang during its peak season.
This is the 2nd time I travel to this island and the first time as a scuba diver, we travel in a group of 10 with 5 scuba divers, 1 about to turn himself to be diver and 4 other non-divers. To reach Redang you either take a bus from Kuala Lumpur main bus station or flight to Kuala Terengganu Airport and you need to take a boat from Merang Jetty which approximately 45 minute in order to reach the island.
This round we will stay in Redang Kalong Resort one of the five start dive center in Redang (Redang Kalong) some of the nice scenery
In total we do 6 dive which cover dive site like South Tip Pulau Lima, Chek Isa, Terumbo Kili, Mat Cantik, Black Coral Garden and house reef of Kalong Resort (night Dive). You can get the info of all dive site in Redang from Redang Dive Site.
Travelling package in Redang usually consist of Full Board meal and usually Saturday night with BBQ dinner, diving in Redang is consider inexpensive and reasonable price. If you want to party at night you can either choose to stay in Long Beach which most of the resort located, or Redang Kalong which is 10minute walking distance away from long beach. There will be party and drinking all night in long beach.
Personally I prefer somewhere quite to get out of hectic city like in Kuala Lumpur. If you need any information regarding diving in Malaysia you can contact me via my email
