The Malaysian island of Redang is located in the state of Terengganu on the east coast of the Malay Peninsula. The waters on the east side of the island are much cleaner than the waters on the west side, where Langkawi and Penang islands are located. If you are looking for a beach resort in Malaysia for its clean waters, then a beach resort on the east coast is a good choice.
To get to Redang Island, there used to be a direct flight from Kuala Lumpur on Perjaya Airways, but the service has been discontinued. So now you have to go to Kuala Trengganu and take a boat, which takes a long time to get there.
