    Swimming with Jewels

    Colourful fish in Lang Tengah

    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.

    Coconut Trees and Deck Chairs, Lang Tengah

    Now, no beach holiday is ever complete with coconut trees admist a backdrop of white sand and blue waters right? I was really glad that Lang Tengah had all of that , complete with deck chairs under those trees. It was definitely an open invitation to unwind...

    Snorkel, Snorkel and more snorkelling!!!

    the fishes

    This island have wonderful corals...You get to see the Blue Corals..which look like a huge bluish purple brocolli .. Lots of triggerfishes and parrotfishes.... I saw butterflyfishes, rabbit fishes, groupers, gobbies, baby sharks, turtles and some that I don't know the names.

    The water was clear and we were definitely unprepared for the amount of corals. From the beach to as far as we dared swim out, the seabed was a tangled growth of all sorts of corals. We have round disc like corals, cylindrical corals, mossy corals and the common tree branch-like corals. In short, it was amazing.

    The marine life around the island was also unbelievable, prompting one of us to quip that it was like an aquarium, except we were swimming in it! Oh, you'll definitely see lots of fishes, eels, sea cucumbers, sea urchins and more. If you're lucky, you will catch a glimpse of Hawksbill and Green Turtles as well as black-tip sharks. Some of the fishes will come and nibble at you though so don't say we didn't warn you if you get molested by a school of colorful fish! If you'll like to create a feeding frenzy, you can obtain a slice of bread from the restaurant and scatter the pieces into the ocean.

    Just be prepared with a camera to catch the chaos of fishes! The depth of the water is a nice gentle slope out to about thirty or so meters and then it starts getting deeper quite fast. However, from where we were (which was quite far out), there seems to be an undersea shelf so it doesn't really get much deeper. Unless you are scuba-diving there's nothing much to do snorkelling that far out.

    Swimming...

    Our favourite swim spot...near Lang Sari

    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.

    More swimming

    Also our favourite swim spot...

    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.

    Let's paddle away

    Some people canoeing...passing by Lang Sari...

    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.

    A stroll along the beach

    A long stretch of beach on Lang Tengah...

    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.

    Laying lazily on the beach

    Enjoying the view...

    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 :)

    Jetty lookout

    by Arfah Updated Aug 11, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the little jetty at Lang Sari...

    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 ;)

    Beach trekking

    by Arfah Updated Aug 11, 2010

    on our way to the other side of the island...

    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 :)

    my sand castle...

    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.

    Squirrels lookout

    by Arfah Written Aug 11, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    one of the many squirrels we found...

    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.

    Marine Park at Redang Island

    Marine park

    There are more colourful fishes at the place. You get to see giant garoupa, murray eels, friendly fishes and the fishes are not afraid to swim near you.

    For only RM$5 per adult, it's worth the trip there!
