    Must Do - Snorkelling

    by bkoon Written Jul 27, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Reefs close-by.  Lotsa corals.

    Not really a must-see activity, rather, a must-do when you are at Redang. Get hold of a set of snorkelling equipmnt and go snorkelling. I did not snorkel much and did that at the beach behind Redang Reef Resort. I saw turtles, small reef sharks, blue-spotted sting ray, anemoe and clown fishes, squids, corals and fishes. Marine life in Redang area is still quite well protected. Have fun snorkelling. Renting a set of snorkel and mask will cost RM20, a pair of fins, probably another RM20. Most accommodation packages come with free snorkelling trips.

    The Blue Planet - Dive

    by bkoon Written Jul 27, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Off we go... DIVING

    70% of the earth is water, the blue planet. Wouldn't it be amazing to explore the underwater too? Redang has quite a number of good dive sites to offer. Diving is great there. One of the new dive sites which I went was Tanjung Lang (deepest I went there was 25m). Prepare to see nudibranchs, various types of corals, fishes, rays, lion fishes, etc.

    Nemo Clown Fish

    Nemo and two of his mates...

    Since it seems to be the hit movie of the day, seems appropriate to post a few "Nemo" clowns... The reefs around Pulau Redang are just teeming with these fish. Actually got bored with photographing them after a while...

    Here Nemo and two of his mates clown about...

    Bumphead Parrot Fish...

    Whoa, Big Fella !!!

    Hands down, the most amazing thing that I encountered in Pulau Redang, were the large packs of huge Bumphead parrot fish roaming about.

    I have seen these before elsewhere, but never in the size (and quantity) that I encountered here in Redang. (If you stretch your imagination a bit, they kinda look like a herd of buffalo storming across the plains...)

    The Beach

    Unspoiled Beach on Redang...

    It is still possible to find unspoiled and undeveloped beautiful white sand beaches around the island. (Hurry this will likely change in the future...)

    Roads are few on the island, so best way to find these places are either by kayak or small boat...

    Hiking

    Hiking on the Rocks, Redang...

    There are a few good hiking possibilities on Redang, both hiking on the rocks around the coast, and through the jungle in the interior.

    Also, due to a lack of roads on the island, getting from place to place means either a boat ride around the perimeter, or a walk along a rough trail...

    Redang Sunrise

    Redang Sunrise...

    Well, the lack of nightlife has its draw backs, but one good point is that it makes it fairly easy to get up and watch the sun rise. We were fortunate to have clear weather every day in Redang which made for nice sunrises (and sunsets) each and every day...

    Village Life

    Small Mosque on Pulau Redang...

    There is one small native village in the centre of the island and it is certainly worthwhile to get away from the hotels to take a look.

    Centered around a small mosque which sits up on a small hill, it is a quite and peaceful place.

    This is a remote and predominately conservative Muslim area, so all of the ladies are wearing the head scarves and you will only find one or two small restaurants (sans cold beer), but the locals are more than friendly and the food is good...

    East Coast Isles...

    Snorkellers off the East Coast of Redang...k

    The whole island is attractive, but the most scenic , and the best area for diving/snorkeling are the small islands off the east coast of Pulau Redang...

    But be aware, as this is the prettiest area, it is also the most popular. Especially when diving, be careful to watch for overhead boat traffice when ascending...

    Snorkelling...

    Interesting Things Right at the Surface...

    You do not have to go very deep to enjoy the underwater beauty of the East coast Islands of Malaysia...

    Just snorkelling around, I was able to see many of the same things as diving: Bumphead parrot fish, hawksbills turtles, nice coral formations, etc...

    And the joy of snorkelling is just falling off the boat, kciking around, and enjoying the scenery... (without lugging 30 kgs of equipment on your back...)

    Beautiful Corals and Fishes

    You will see a rich diversity of marine life and corals when you snorkel around the bays or the open waters off Redang. The resorts normally provide 2 boat trips out to the open waters for snorkelling in a day. For more underwater pictures, please check out my travelogue.

    Pulau Redang (this gotta be Paradise!!!)

    Sunrise, Redang

    Sunrise at Pulau Redang is really beyond description. Beside the crystal clear water, Redang is probably the first place in the entire Peninsular Malaysia to spot the sun for every new day.

    After the sunrise, go and grab the breakfast included in your package tour and ready to hit out for swimming, diving or snorkeling, or whatever the reason you visit the island.

    Pat in Hammock

    This is not really a "Must See", but definitely a "Must Do" when you're visiting beach resort. Better still if you've just ordered a cocktail with a tiny umbrella on it.

    Most resorts with dormitories facility will have some hammocks hanging around within their area. Top end resorts will likely to provide beach chairs, but lower budget & mid tier resorts will likely to provide more casual setting the enjoyment of their customers.

    shark's bay when low tide

    alot of dead corals down there so wear booties to avoid hurting or scratching your leg.

    The fishes there follow you even if u dun feed them. Try to venture out a little more, remb ur life jacket coz the current can be a little strong.

    We caught a glimpse of 4 baby sharks. They swam away before we can take a picture
