Wreck diving, snorkeling, swimming, scuba diving, jungle trekking, boating and canoeing are just some of the many activities you can enjoy at Pulau Redang or Redang Island, located 45km off the coast of Kuala Terengganu. It is the largest of a group of nine protected islands dotting the South China Sea off the Terengganu coast.
The island offers crystal clear waters and numerous dive sites for enthusiasts. Sheltered within the Pulau Redang Marine Park, the waters here are rich in marine life. At midday when the sun rays penetrate the sea, brilliant hues of coral, anemones and fish can be seen.
The waters around Pulau Redang also contain two historic shipwrecks: The H.M.S. Prince of Wales and H.M.S. Repulse, which sank here at the start of World War II, setting the stage for the Japanese occupation of Malaya. No fishing is allowed within a 3.2km radius from the island as Pulau Redang is gazetted as a marine park. The collection of corals and other aquatic life is also strictly prohibited. Berjaya Resort offers a golf course in an idyllic setting.
