A holiday to remember but for me, not worth repeating. Perhentian is three times better because more places to go around

For those who wants to experience a quiet holiday like a private beach with amazing view and stunning sunrise. Redang island should be your first choice.

1. Hello to travelers, I know everybody got a lot planned this year but we must be delayed and waiting COVID 19 be ended on new year. So the topic relates to my first trip to the islands of Terengganu. I choose to travel to Redang Island and explore then I will share it.

2. Firstly, Redang Island is located in Kuala Nerus District and you have two options to come here via boat at Merang Jetty (not Marang Jetty) or Kuala Terengganu Jetty. But I suggest foreigners use public transport via Kuala Terengganu Jetty to go to Redang Islands.

3. If you use your own transport you can directly go to Merang Jetty and pay for parking your cars/motorcycles (safety). Next, Redang Island also has a trip day. For example, I recommend your planned stay around Merang Jetty / Sutra Beach Resort and take the day trip with travel agencies (more cheap).

4. Secondly, accommodation at Redang Islands has several choices from low price to luxury hotel depending on your expenses. I always promote apps to search for accommodation from Booking.com, Trivago and Agoda.

5. Thirdly, the activities in Redang Island were dependent on travelers because it is also suitable for family vacations, honeymoon or friends reunion. Usually, I really recommend snorkelling activity and please visit Pasir Bujang (Sand Shelf).

6. Next, food and beverages at Redang Island were a little bit expensive and I highly recommend bringing some food such as bread, mineral water, candy or noodles (Magi). But you can enjoy BBQ tonight because it is so fresh and cheap.

7. Besides that, the weather at the island is so hot and drying then please wear a sunblock either physical/ chemical but make sure no harm to our marine life. Drink more water before and after activity.

8. Lastly, we must be good travelers to protect our environment. For example, don't litter anywhere and throw it into the sea (If I do that with you, I throw you into the sea). Also, we did snorkelling and saw the rubbish/plastic please collect that for marine life.

Thank you, if you have any questions, please message and comment below.

The COVID epidemic had driven Malaysians here in truckloads. The main tourist stretch is Long Beach (Pasir Panjang) which I can foresee getting pretty full during peak season.

Water is very clear in most places, and the devastation of plastic bottles and litter has not reached the proportions of many other beaches, fortunately.

The "off-peak" seasons would be Feb-Mar and Sept-Oct, when the weather is slightly less reliable but the crowds will be much less. The beauty of the underwater world isn't much affected by a little rain, in any case.

Transport is a hassle. No Uber, Grab or taxis. Ask at your resort or local restaurants for help. The two places you may want to access are the main Redang jetty (some tours only depart from here) or other beaches in Redang. You can cross jungle with a guide to get there, in some cases. Redang is only 7km wide.

Definitely worth a visit, but if you need space and privacy, plan and research carefully, unless you're not bothered by crowds.

The year of 2020 is truly a year of domestic travel and most resorts with beaches are full. It is pretty easy to access with and good for solo travelers like me who just want to get away from the hustle and bustle

Lived up to all all the hype in terms of stay and views. However..the snorkelling could be better...and taken to more interesting locations with actual live corals.

Redang is a great base to take snorkel and dive tours. The island gets a bit crowded around the resorts.
