The Pulau (P) Redang Archipelago consists of the 9 islands of P. Redang, P. Pinang, P. Ling, P. Ekor Tebu, P. Kerengga Besar, P.Kerengga Kecil, P. Paku Besar, P. Paku Kecil and P. Lima 45 km off the Terengganu coast. The marine waters surrounding these islands   up to 2 nautical miles from the low water mark of the shore have been designated as Pulau Redang Marine Parks Malaysia. Prior to the establishment of the marine parks the same waters were designated as Prohibited Fisheries Waters.

How to get there?
 
Many people pursue livelihoods and recreational activities in the park waters sharing use of these protected waters with the natural living resources. The purpose of the Marine Parks is to manage the conservation of the marine resources.
 
The climate of the archipelago is dominated by the north-east monsoon, which blows from November to March, producing a wetter season in these months than during the rest of the year. During this time, there is heavy rainfall and the surrounding seas are rough, making the island group almost inaccessible by boat. Rain, however, is frequent throughout the year with short dry spells. Drainage is provided by the main river of Sungai Redang and several small streams.
 
About 200 families reside in the fishing village in houses built on stilts on the main island of P. Redang at the estuary of the Sungai Redang. Presently plans are being made to shift them further inland.
 
Agriculture is carried out mainly on the fl at land of the Sungai Redang Valley with fruit trees lining the hill slopes. Remnants of coconut and pepper plantations still exist on P.Redang. The islanders are mainly fishermen. Some, however, supplement their income by the collection of edible birds’ nests from the swifl et colonies located in the caves along the north-eastern coast.
 
The P Redang Marine Park, administered by the Department of Marine Park Malaysia provides special protection and management for marine areas of national significance. The overall goal will be to protect, conserve and manage in perpetuity marine environments of significance and to encourage the public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of Malaysia’s natural marine heritage by present and future generations of Malaysians.
 
A mangrove forest is the part of the main attractions in Pulau Redang. The land and water is managed as an integrated ecosystem with co-operation between the Federal and State Government. Development on the private lands is managed through proper planning using the environmental guidelines established by the state government to reduce the adverse environmental impact to the ecosystem of the island.

::Sightseeing and Things to Do
The park provides a variety of compatible outdoor recreational opportunities for the park visitor such as snorkeling, diving, picnicking, camping, saltwater, fishing, boating, swimming, jungle-tracking and hill-climbing, bird-watching, wildlife observation and photography, both on land an underwater.  Visibility is excellent during most parts of the year.   
 
Snorkelling and diving provides the best means of observing and enjoying the coral reefs of P. Redang. The waters in the park provide one of the most enjoyable and spectacular diving spots in Peninsular Malaysia.
 
P. Redang has several stretches of excellent camping grounds with extensive good beaches for picnicking and shallow waters for safe swimming. These can be found in the large bay of T. Dalam to the north of the island, Pasir T. Kalong and Pasir Panjang; isolated and smaller stretches of beach occur on the west and north coast, at Pasir Mak Simpan, Pasir Mak Kepit dan Pasir Changar Hutang.
 
Boaters can enjoy a sightseeing tour of the island which can take about 12 hours, observing rock formation and the rain forests which cover the major part of the island. A glass bottom boat would allow visitors to observe the spectacular coral formation in the shallow reef areas.
 

The island also provides good terrain for hiking. This can be combined with bird watching, turtle watching, and animal and plant observations. Well preserved plant fossils of the Upper Palaeozoic age can be observed on the south western portion of P. Redang between Pasir Macam Ayam dan Pasir Kechil.
