A Place in the Sun Part 2 by John Foster

Tropical Island Redang in the South China Seas, and guess what I'm going their on Thursday for a holiday.

Do a bit of diving, snorkeling and of course par taking in a few Gin & Tonics while watching the sun set.

Redang is a divers Paradise so I'm told, and from the books I have seen showing how clear the sea is and the fish so abundant I think it may well be.

With it's pearly white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, colorful array of marine life, spectacular starry nights and breathtaking sunrise, it also offers the ultimate hideaway for those seeking privacy and relaxation.

Redang island offers the marine sports enthusiast unrivalled opportunities for scuba diving, snorkeling, wind surfing,
fishing and lots of sand and sun.

Jungle Trekking
There is a moderately well trodden and marked path between Pasir Panjang and Teluk Dalam beach, about 2 km long. Sights include a small stream and pools alive with catfish, the occasional encounter with the shy kancil (mousedeer) and monkeys, and other jungle flora and fauna. At the end of the trek is the Berjaya Redang Beach Resort at Teluk Dalam. For the more adventurous, there are rocky cliffs and outcrops away from this beaten path that offer spectacular overhead views of Pasir Panjang below

Marine Park Centre : At 5-15m deep, the jetty at the Marine Park Centre offers easy access to a large variety of marine life such as lobsters, moray eels, a giant grouper and squirrelfish that are resident among the PVC pipes of the artificial reef directly under the jetty.
