Treat Yourself to Redang Island

Redang Island – a perfect place to treat yourself a little!

Pulau Redang, Malaysia Island

All of us carry a need to experience things the fullest, all that those we are exposed to and can afford ourselves to. Our senses take in all that there is to, treasurely holding on to places and people and events, and that threads us as human. That is how we connect to this world outside of us. We try to find pieces of ourselves everywhere and then we take in pieces from around us to create new parts of us.

There is a balance of contribution here, and some places on the planet are just the right choices to do so. Make sure you note down Redang Island on that list! Here is a brief outline of what you need to start with.

 

The Redang Island

One of the largest islands off the East coast of Malaysia, the Redang Island is a popular tourist destination. It is a part of the Redang archipelago (a chain of islands scattered in the lakes, rivers or the ocean). While Redang Island or Pulau Redang is the biggest island, the other islands are Pulau Lima, Pulau Paku Besar, Pulau Paku Kecil, Pulau Kerengga Kecil, Pulau Kerengga Besar, Pulau Ekor Tebu, Pulau Ling and Pulau Pinang. These islands are protected marine parks, protecting underwater life from humans.

Owing to its vibrant tourist accommodations, Redang’s accommodations are mostly resort-based. The Island has a tropical temper to it. The best time to visit such East Coast islands of Malaysia is typically between March to October, for the monsoon restricts movements in the other months.

Redang’s image as a mainstream island may affect the crowds found there, and that too, only in a relative sense to other islands around. However, it still is a serene cool place for you to hang out and relax – the beaches to the North and South end, resorts, the jungles, night life, sea, trekking, underwater life – you name it!

What to Expect

The white sandy beaches of Redang slowly lead you towards the crystal clear waters. A few meters further, the sights of tropical fish and coral reefs will delight you! Laze around in the beaches around, walk on the wooden bridge and the sand, relax and eat in the resort, trek and wander in the jungle (but safely with all necessary supplies), dance or sit among the night life, wash yourself with the sea, go snorkelling and diving…

  1. For island hopping, you can visit Perhentian Islands, Lang Tengah Island, Kapas Island, Ekor Tebu Island, Ling Island, Pinang Island, Bidong Island, Lima Island and Susu Dara Island. There are other little uninhabitated islands too!
  2. During snorkelling and diving you can see coral reefs, underwater wrecks, jacks, fusiliers and trevallies, black tip reef sharks, humphead, parrotfish, cuttlefish, turtles, manta rays, whale sharks, reeftip sharks, snappers, rabbitfish, silver barracudas, clownfish, triggerfish… (since it’s a protected marine park, there are thousands of other varities of aquatic life!)
  3. During trekking you can see macaque monkeys, monitor lizards, fruit bats, squirrels (and beware of mosquitoes in general), and thankfully, no large animals!
  4. In general, you can see the sunrise, sunset, stars and other people playing beach volleyball, kayaking, fishing, just sitting (depending on the season you go there).

 

What to do

Well. Pack your budget, pack a ticket straight to Redang Island. Or, accommodate yourself in the nearby Perhentian Islands. But before you do that, make sure you do all of these right.

  1. Confirm your payment methods.
  2. Remember to respect local culture and religion, no matter how differently conservative.
  3. Plan an itinerary and make sure you don’t miss out what you want to do.
  4. Make sure to book the rooms comfortable for you, in budget, activity and view sense.
  5. Gather details on local transport, and make sure you manage your time properly.
  6. Have a rough idea of underwater and above-water activities you’ll be doing, and do so accordingly.

Long story short, make the best out of it!

Hidden Paradise among Malaysia Islands: Kapas Island

Pulau Kapas, Malaysia Island

To be human to be touched – through any of the senses and the feelings we imbibe in. And there are places you can retreat to, just for sufficing your senses, and capture what’s more important, and what makes us human and functional – memories. And as one such places, we present to you, Pulau Kapas, or as we generally know, Kapas Island of Malaysia.

The Island

Kapas Island of Malaysia is located near the city of Kuala Teregganu, in the Eastern part of the peninsula. The name of the island translates as “Cotton”, and thus is called “Cotton Island”, because of the colour of the beaches in there.

Kapas Island is little compared to its neighbouring islands of Pulau Perhentian (Perhentian Island) and Pulau Redang (Redang Island), but is still quite wholesome. Kapas Island is thus less populated than its peers, making it the right place for you to take in silence, something so much needed these days, a silence that is not haunting. And this silence gives you a different passage of time, and sticks on with you. Kapas Island is accurately called “Hidden Paradise” for this reason.

What you can do in Kapas Island

Does it mean it’s a boring island? Absolutely not, especially if you’re looking to inhale some space away from the world. It’s a quiet place, but that doesn’t mean it’s devoid of all action for you. So what are more things you can do here to stretch out your stress?

WATER ACTIVTIES:

It’s an island, and thus the major highlights you can do here definitely include diving and snorkeling! You can swim around with schools of fishes and also turtles. A note to remember is that, Kapas Island is a part of the marine national park, so yes, you’re in for a good underwater sight-seeing. Beginner or already practicing, there’s help for you to go snorkeling and diving. Also, there’s a World War II ship wreckage site 30 minutes from the island, how cool is that!

You can also go kayaking in the island, and that helps you get around the island and explore places less explored, and to hop to nearby islands.

SHORE ACTIVITIES:

Kapas Island is known for having some of the best beaches, hands down. There are a total of 5 to 6 beaches in the island. They’re all connected by bridges, so you could just take a walk around.

Other options for you are to explore the shoreline beauty, of the rock formations beautifully carved by nature around the island.

It is thus an ethereal island you should visit, beyond doubt.

Discover Lang Tengah Island

Places like the Lang Tengah Island (Pulau Lang Tengah) – well, they say that the best things in life are those waiting to be discovered, to be embraced. To be stumbled upon in serendipity, or to be seen by deliberate choice. However discovered, the best part of it would be the unexpected yet visible place they would have been discovered from; and then you hear about that in some passing breeze, and when you find them, the first thing to run inside your head will be, “Where were you my whole life?”

Lang Tengah Island

Lang Tengah or Pulau Lang Tengah is an island in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia. The Island is sandwiched between the Pulau Redang and Pulau Pergentian, on the East Coast of Malaysia. The name of this island translates as “the eagle in the middle”, as a reference to its location. Also, some people call it the “Maldives of Malaysia” owing to its marine richness.

Lang Tengah is not a place that appears so simple at plain sight but then turns into an extravagantly beautiful area – it simply is breath-taking upon first sight, with simplicity, grandeur, tranquility and brightness, all of them enmeshed together and served via Nature for us humans, in another example of its generosity.

This island has no roads to travel, except a few jungle paths cleared by civilization for convenience of travel. The only way to get around the island is by foot or by water, either by boats or by canoes.

 

The terrestrial of Lang Tengah Island

The tropical island has both terrestrial and marine richness. The lush rainforest cover gives a home for its own diverse ecosystem including birds, frogs, lizards and insects. It is a place with fresh oxygen and refreshing aura, all the while letting you give a reminder about the actual life outside the mechanically-built and pressing world.

The water around Lang Tengah Island

The marine side compliments this atmosphere with its beaches that have light-producing ostracods washed up on the shore, which lights the beach with a shade of neon blue, like crystals have fallen of the waters and deposited on the beach as a mark of ownership, like they belong with each other.

The water is crystal-clear, and the beaches are stunningly white in the daytime. The ecosystem inside the water isn’t any less significant to its terrestrial counterpart – they have excellent coral reefs with schools of fish swarming, sometimes even sharks and rays. However, the frequent yet brief thunderstorms restrict the ferry transports and activities of the resort between October and March.

The island offers not only a chance to escape and experience life in its fullness but also to involve in environmentally-conscious activities, like conservative activities. For example, the Turtle Bay beach in the island is dedicated to marine turtle conservation. The Lang Tengah Turtle Watch is responsible for this, and consists of volunteers to run their objectives – you can donate to their cause and also buy their merchandise! Also, you can get a chance to see baby sharks in the shallows! You will have an added enriching experience of learning about the different members of the society who are not humans who make up this planet.
