Set at the northern tip of Redang Island, off the east coast of the Malay Peninsula, this beach is lined with powder-soft sand surrounded by rain forest. Splash about in the turquoise waters of the sheltered lagoon, or swim out to Aziz’s Reef, 100 meters offshore, where you’ll find an underwater menagerie bursting with marine life.
Where to Stay The best lodgings on this sparsely populated strip of sand are the new hillside villas at the Berjaya Redang Beach Resort, replete with private patios and unbeatable lagoon views.
What to Do It’s hard not to spend day after lazy day on the beach. But if you must take shelter, pull up one of the resort’s padded sunloungers, set under thatched umbrellas. There’s always a game of volleyball on the go, and the Berjaya’s marine center is fully equipped to take out divers of all experience levels. On-land adventure seekers can trek into the rain forest towards Teluk Dalam Besar Beach, equally pretty and often deserted.
When to Go Redang is blessed with blue skies for most of the year, except between November and January when the monsoon strikes.
~found out that this island included in 10 great island beaches in Asia.. felt proud of it..
