Redang Island – Marine Park & Monkeys – Malaysia

Redang adventure keeps going, now in a different part of the island, bringing new territories to be explored!
Today we visit Teluk Pauh, Pulau Pinang, meet some monkeys, eat delicious Malay food, and relax with massages.

Marine Park – Pulau Pinang

Pinang is an islet just a few minutes by boat from Redang main island.
The trip can be arranged with your hotel (often times is included in package deals), or by renting a boat at the pier.
It offers great snorkeling and with a huge variety of species in shallow waters.
The paradisiacal look and powdery white sand make it perfect for sunbathing and enjoying the nature all around.
The only con is the lack of a restaurant, which makes hard to spend a whole day on the island unless you came prepared.

Redang Island Vlog: Diving and Beach Life – Malaysia

Sun-kissed, sea-hugged, and star-bathed!
Everything happening smoothly, living in the beautiful present.
Just one more typical day in Redang Island, the kind of day I want to have for the rest of my life!

The powdery white sand, the friends, the feels…all peacefully, with the right vibration, being appreciated.
The deep nature connection generating one-pointedness to our otherwise noisy minds.
How easy to be grateful in a place like this?! Impossible to forget that we are living in bliss, surrounded by the divine.

While relaxing by the beach, you can’t help but be mesmerized by the stunning view.
It is beyond belief, dreamy, and radiant with such intensity that you can’t do anything but be spellbound by it.
Inside and outside the water, equally breath-taking.

Having A Blast In Redang Island + Top Things To Do – Malaysia

Every time I encounter a turtle the experience gets holy.
It’s the universe and I dancing.
And man, we dance it out quite a few times during this trip!✨

Having A Blast In Redang Island + Top Things To Do - Malaysia

Here’s a list of the best attractions in other-worldly Redang Island:

Top Things To Do

☞Snorkeling
Giant skull of fishes, sharks, turtles, rays, corals, just drop in the water!
Even though the monsoon season was about to start, the sea was stable enough for snorkeling to be done.
In the evenings it would get a little wavy, showing what was to come.
We stayed until the last day when hotels started closing for the stormy season.

☞Dive
A great diving destination, offering special encounters every single time you jump into the water.
With a big variety of dive sites, average visibility of 20 meters, and a huge showcase of soft and hard corals.
No up and down current(something I’m particularly afraid of), making it a fairly safe place to dive.

☞Chill On The Beach
No explanation needed😉.

☞Trekking/Explore
Pulau Redang is 7km long and 6km wide, giving plenty of choices for trek lovers.
Among the viewing possibilities are mangroves, river, hills, rare animal species, and of course beaches.

☞Volleyball By The Beach
Some hotels set a volleyball net by the beach, even if you are not staying in one of them, just walk by and ask to join the game.
Everyone is happy to share the space and bring some new excitement to it.

☞Kayak
Renting a kayak (or using the ones available at your resort if that is the case), can be definitely a fun activity.
Make sure to pack the sunblock, place your belongings in a dry bag, and ask route tips for your hotel staff before leaving.
Snorkeling can be incorporated into your kayak trip, making for a fun half day out.
Using a life jacket is advisable.

☞Massage
Starting from rm 100 an hour at Pasir Panjang, can be done beachfront or in a spa room.
Some resorts offer bookings of a local company starting from rm70 for 30min(honestly not a great massage, but due to the lack of options it may be considerable).

☞Boat Trips
Booking a boat trip is easy yet not a huge range of options are available.
The two main ways are either booking with your hotel(or neighbor hotels) or ask around the pier/fisherman village, which opposite from Thailand, for example, won’t be on the cheaper side.
If you have a package, the trips will probably be included, what can be value for money knowing that there are no cheap self-booking options.

☞Eat
Local dishes hold exotic, delicious flavors.
There’s plenty of main courses, desserts, and fruits to be pleased by.
Vegans need beforehand planning with the chosen resort to make it happen, in our case, it turned out well.

Dreamy, Secluded Redang Island + Where To Stay – Malaysia

How amazing is our world, how lucky we are to be able to go through such experiences!
They are one attitude away, free yourself, spread your wings and fly!
Divine Redang is one of these gifts from the universe, just waiting for you.😉
Grab it, manifest, live it!✨

Dreamy, Secluded Redang Island - Malaysia

Where To Stay

As I mentioned in the previous post, unfortunately, there are no backpacker prices available on the island.
There are still a big variety of hotels, from mid-range to high-end prices.

My advice is to stay beachfront, Redang is not an easy/cheap place to move around, and there’s not much to see apart from the main reason you’re there.
No night markets, pubs, nice restaurants, or whatsoever out of the beachfront.
There’s only one road on the island and it doesn’t access many of the bays, it is a mistake not to stay beachfront, there’s no reason too.

We wanted to get our diving certification done, packages were the best/cheapest/value option.
If you are planning on doing snorkeling trips, it may be the best choice to go with a package too.
We are usually not prone to buying packages but in Pulau Redang, it was what worked the best for us.

If you are on a tight budget and choose one of the small hotels that are not in front of the beach(and are still expensive), paying for trips/ snorkeling trips/taxis/dives to visit the places you wish, can end up costing you the same as the package deals or more.
I know that’s not the case in many places, but it is in Redang.
Asking around the pier or in the village won’t put the price much down, you will either end up isolated and not experiencing the island as much or spending a whole more then you expected.

We had an amazing time and recommend staying at the main beach, Pasir Panjang.
Redang interior is quite undeveloped and at this bay, you have the opportunity to walk the long beach, look at small shops, have some massage, and restaurants options.
Also, it is magnificent and not crowded at all, the peaceful feeling remains even though it is the most concentrated area.
Fantastic snorkeling can be done out of the shore.

The hotels we stayed:

Redang Pelangi Resort*

Redang Island Resort*

**Would not stay again due to the isolated location.

*Not sponsored.

The paradisiacal island, unfortunately, doesn’t cater for backpacker prices, but if you are going to choose somewhere to splurge, this is most definitely a great choice.
Still, prices are not high as the Maldives per say, and the packages are value for money, you end up not spending much(or nothing at all) out of it.
But first you have to find your way to this magnificent place:

How To Get There

✈By Plane:
From Kuala Lumpur, you have to fly to Kuala Terengganu, where is located the nearest airport to Redang.
