Pulau Lang Tengah Things to Do

  • Squirrels lookout

    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....

  • 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.

  • Beach trekking

    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...

  • Jetty lookout

    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...

  • 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...

    more
  • 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.

Pulau Lang Tengah Restaurants

  • Simple but sweet and tasty

    The restaurant is not open 24 hours. It's only open during breakfast, lunch and dinner when it accommodate meals for the resort's guests. Meals served here were always locals. Though simple...but most meals were quite tasty. This is not like the island where you'll found many restaurants...all restaurants are located in the resorts...meaning...

  • Fullboard food? Don't count on it

    Food provided is normal. Not particular tasty, but then, if you don't eat, there's nothing else for you to eat since there are no shops here. you eat what they cook, period. Unless you happen to bring your own supplies. Also, bring your own drinking water, unless you are used to drinking seawater.

  • Yummy Malaysian Desserts

    We took a 10-hour bus journey back from Trengganu to Singapore and along the way, it made a couple of stops . Boy, were we glad when it finally stopped for lunch at some Kelantan road side stall! Our stomachs were rumbling by then and the array of desserts simply looked fantastic. The buffet of goodies you see in front of you are actually crispy -...

Pulau Lang Tengah Nightlife

  • Quiet nights on island

    Basically, during the night, the island is very much quiet except for the sounds of resort guests walking about the cafeteria and games area. At the games area, on weekends, guests would play Chinese "Mahjong" or some groups will be chatting away the night, making new friends over cups of hot coffee/tea or play a game of cards.

    more
  • Stargazing

    One of the local told us that every night they can usually catch 2-3 falling stars in the sky.Too bad it was full moon when we were there so the sky was super bright and difficult to spot a falling star.

  • Let your imagination goes wild~

    Other than the bar and TV at the lounge, Lang Tengah (DCL in particular) at night was pretty much dead, but that could also mean "it depends on your creativity".

  • Sleep is the best

    Not much of a nightlife on this island. Blue Coral's nightlife = watching TV or drinking at the restaurant.Redang Lang's nightlife = loud music. (That's what I can hear vaguely from Blue Coral)Square Point's nightlife = music and playing pool. They are in the midst of building their mini pub.D'Coconut's nightlife = watching TV or majong for the...

  • Night Diving/Night Snorkelling

    Ok, I don't blame you if you think I'm a little out of whack to suggest this but this is an activity you should try at least once! Sea creatures, like land animals become stangely awake once night descends so you'll see lots activity on your night excursion. Try the house reef at Redang Lang. Bring your own diving torch if you can. Hubby and I...

Pulau Lang Tengah Warnings and Dangers

  • Be careful when you're walking barefoot

    The white sandy beach is not really sandy all the way. Many parts of the beach are covered with dead corals/stones just like the photo. Walking barefoot along the beach is fun to do but be careful with what you're landing on. You'll found similar stones in the water too.

    more
  • Ouch!

    Although this island is relatively less commercialised than Pulau Redang, its sad to find that there are a lot of dead corals lying around even in the rather shallow areas. It would be good to either rent a pair of fins or have a pair of aqua shoes ready when going snorkelling or anytime you're stepping into the water. Its quite painful, I'm not...

  • Dead corals at the beach

    There are lots n lots of dead corals at the beach and it can be painful to walk on it barefooted.It's not a big problem once you get used to it. But there was this one time when I jumped down from a stone formation and landed at a large mass of dead corals, I wore a slippers but you all know slippers slip, and I got a quite painful scratch.

Pulau Lang Tengah What to Pack

  • Travel Light

    Bring backpack and big plastic bags to cover your backpack if you don't want it to get wet or dirty. Swimsuit, Tshirts & shorts, sandals and a shawl. You can buy the shawl in the Merang jetty for RM15. Just wrap the shawl to your body if you are cold. That way you use less T-shirts & Shorts. Sun block, Mosquito repellent, Alcohol wipes if you get...

  • Pack light~

    I'd suggest you bring backpack coz it's easier to carry around for transfer (for me Singapore - Larkin - KT - Merang - Resort), trust me you wouldn't want to carry hand luggages thru all that. Bring your swimming/wet suit, for the rest (we rented mask, snorkel, fins and life jacket for RM15/day) you can rent at the dive centre there. DCL provides...

    more
  • Bring a camera and bring home memories.

    Make this a minimal, better to bring a backpack since you're be hopping from one boat to another. Bring along a pair of light weight slippers like TEVA and your swimwear of course. Oh yes, your snorkelling gear, scuba suit and fins. If not, you need to pay rental fees for those things. Hmm, mosquito flies to ward off sand flies.. Bring along an...

  • Trivial Trevally or Double Trouble..?

    The divemasters asked us to stay away from the Trevally that occasionally check out new comers to their waters as they are territorial........ the malaysian say dont ' Play !Play!' ( Dont treat it trivial).

  • Giant Iguana or is it a Komodo?

    There is a giant Iguana lurking around the slope next to the D.coconut resort..huge fella..wanted to take photo but I just had an urge to keep an eye on him as he was moving his head side to side...then he decided he had enough and crashed through the bushes. I have seen many iguanas ..quite common in malaysia especially in the outskirts like Batu...

  • Spiders, Spiders Everywhere

    You can trek round the island. Square Point provides trekking for their guests FOC, if I'm correct cos every other evening, we'll see their guests.For me, I just trek from D'Coconut East Wing to Blue Coral. Too lazy to even walk to Redang Lang Resort. The whole journey is about a leisure 15-20 mins stroll. Equip yourself with a long strong stick or...

    The viz at Lang Tengah is generally clear at about 15-20m during the time I was there ( Mar05) but I was told that a couple of weeks before, it sucked due to a slight swell. Current conditions were ok, but could be a tad strong at times. Was also told there is a wreck nearby...

  • Diving in Lang Tengah

    Diving in Redang Lang Resort was good for us. I don't really know whethere we received a discount on account on the chummy time we had with the resort owner but he charged us only RM70 per tank! On top of that, his BCs (Oceanic) were almost new, as were his wetsuits (Oceanic ) but we had our own wetsuits (Oz brand- Bare) so we didn't use theirs....

  • Dive Sites in Lang Tengah

    Even though Lang Tengah was a tiny place, there were lots of dive sites. But being the perennial sloths that we were, hubby and I only checked out #1(Karang Nibong, max depth - 26m) and the #11(House Reef - 18m?) . Though both dive sites weren't exceptional, we felt happy to be in the waters again. We saw fat pufferfish, colourful nudibranch, a...
