Redang Island - Pulau Redang
To put things simply, Redang Island is a tropical paradise. To be more accurate, it's a group of very small islands off the coast of the Malaysian peninsula, that have the trifecta of great weather, lush jungle, and beautiful beaches - at least for six months a year (the island and it's hotels are generally deserted during monsoon season).
While Redang isn't a place to visit to experience local culture, shopping, or nightlife, it's certainly a place to come and experience beautiful surroundings and sea life. Redang is primarily visited for it's world class snorkeling and diving. Directly off the main beach on which the majority of the hotels are located, you can find a lively coral reef, where you can easily find small reef sharks and a huge variety of tropical fish. With a bit of luck, sea turtles, octopus, giant trigger fish, and moray eels are common sightings here as well.
