This doesn't require a lot of energy and money too! I spent just sitting lazily in front of my room...quietly of course...and the next thing I saw were squirrels running up and down the trees around the area. Some were even brave enough to come closer.
There's monitor lizards too on the island...not so sure how many...but I saw two quite big ones. Never heard any story about monitor lizards attacks yet...but let's just be extra careful.
Castle with a beach view
If you have extra time, consider building a sand castle by the beach...it was fun for me and hubby challenging ourselves to build better looking castle...and of course the winner was me!!! This activity is definitely free, just pick any good location with a good view to enjoy in the process.
Not satisfy with the beach in front of your resort or feeling like trying another beach? Go on a beach trekking then. Hubby and I did this once we got to Lang Tengah. Walking from Lang Sari to the very right of the island led us to this cove like area with a lot of rocks...big and small. Plenty of time we had to climb on rocks too...but it wasn't a problem at all.
Guess what, you need to take this rocky walk too if you want to go to the shop...only available at Redang Lang. Well, I saw a few kids climbing those rocks with coconut drinks on their hands...so if they can do it one hand...we all can :)
Sitting lazily on the jetty while enjoying the view was good too. Of course you're not really encouraged to do this when the sun is scorching...wake up early and do this...you'll see crabs, jelly fish, colourful fishes and other underwater species int the water too. You can go for jetty lookout again just before the sun going down...but of course water will be very shallow too and there isn't much to see under the water...except for the breathtaking view at dusk.
There are a few jetties on the island...mainly belong to the resorts and one concrete jetty belongs to the island...I think. Anyway, it would be advisable to just to this jetty lookout thing on the jetty located at your resort...I'm not so sure if the resort you're not staying will let you trespass their jetty...but you can try ;)
Laying lazily on the beach
Also one of my favourite activities, in fact it's a must do on any island/beach trips. It's the time when a pareo/sarong became very handy. Would have been nice if there's a hammock too...but this gave the same fun as well. Just find a nice spot where it's not too hot...preferably with a little bit of shade to keep that sunburn at bay and of course bring along a good book, drinks, some food to chew and a camera :)
A stroll along the beach
Walking slowly along the beach from one end to another end was one of my favourite. We don't really need a lot of energy to do this...just walk lazily and enjoy the beautiful view with winds blowing on the face.
Let's paddle away
Canoeing on this small island was really fun, well, hubby and I only paddled up till Redang Lang and the East Wing of D'Coconut Lagoon. We spent most of the time remain static on the canoe peeking into the water, there were corals all over...big and small...that came in various colours too...colourful fishes...sea cucumber and other species were also found. Some people even brought along their snorkeling equipment and jumped in the water for a closer look at the underwater species there.
I think the only place you can rent canoe will be at Lang Sari Resort. They have few nice canoes. Rental fee was very reasonable...RM25 for 2 hours.
We went checking out other nearby beaches and found this one just on the left side of Sari Pacifica. If you are walking from D'Coconut Lagoon or Lang Sari this spot will be on the far end of that long stretch of beach.
The water is crystal clear with plenty of colourful fishes around. However, there're also dead corals/stones here so swim with extra care.
I enjoyed the view too...seating or even laying lazily on one of those big rocks while looking out the ocean.
This place is also located on a beach route to the other two resorts (Sari Pacifica and Redang Lang), so other people might be passing by this beautiful spot...just make sure all your valuables are kept nicely to avoid any unwanted situation.
Well, it is an island...surrounded by the ocean...with the crystal clear water splashing charmingly, so of course we need to spend time for swimming. The water was a bit rough early in the morning, but after about 10.00 am it became too tempting.
Swimming on Lang Tengah is not something so easy to do since most of the seabed are covered with dead corals/stones, walking in the shallow water to a point for a swim was not that easy due to those dead corals/stones. Anyway, after checking out almost all nearby beaches, we decided the beach on the right side of Lang Sari as our favourite swim spot. The water was crystal clear and there were not much of dead corals/stones here.
Exploring the beaches
From DCL east wing beach, you can walk all the way up to Blue Coral resort beach.
It's not all sandy beaches though, sometimes you gotta go through small jungle trails behind the resorts.
Bring your camera, there are some nice picture taking spots along the way~
- where waters are clear and warm all day and night
- small, well organised dive center with friendly, helpful staff
Become a beach bum :)
- laze on the sand under the shade of a palm tree and snooze
- enjoy the cool breeze and drinks from the bar. You can concoct your own drink too
- get a great tan
- Diving and Snorkeling
There are only these few activities
1. Bring a ball and play at the volleyball court
3. Bring a book to read
4. Jungle trek (guided, weather permitting)
5. Stare out to the sea
6. Bring a Frisbee to play
7. Bring your cards to play
As you can see, it mostly depends on what you have brought to do. They don't have anything there.
An Underwater Paradise.
You should absolutely plan to spend time underwater, or at least looking at the underwater life whilst on Lang Tengah. I have visited many beautiful islands, and the water clarity, coupled with coral gardens and diversity of marine life make it a very special place. You are almost certain to encounter sharks, even whilst snorkelling. What an amazing experience, to share the water with sharks in this beautiful place. The back side of the island, around the other side from the resorts is especially nice. Ask the boat driver to take you to the area of amazing 'green sea' on the opposite side of the island.
It's a long way from any development around this island, and far enough away from Redang to be totally unspoilt.

Swimming with Jewels
Once you're done with the lazing, you might want to do a little swimming. You won't regret it, just remember to bring a good pair of googles to see the little gems in the water. Yup, the little fishes in Lang Tengah look like jewels, so colourful they were, in contrast against the white corals in shallow waters! You can swim with them as they don't seem to fear humans at all.
Dining by Blue Waters
Once you're totally relaxed, you're bound to feel hungry, so what do you do next? Easy, just head for the best dining spot overlooking the beach. Somehow, the beautiful sight at Lang Tengah will act like a magical sauce and make everything you eat taste delicious.
