Long Beach

Pasir Panjang (Long Beach) is a wide fine sand beach with snorkel opportunities right of the beach along the rocks at the northern and southern end and the peninsula in the middle. 

The water is extremely crystal clear. During the day, the beach is buzzing with a hive of beach activities. There are at least 3 or 4 beach volleyball courts stretching along the shoreline. Occasionally, you can also find the tourists and locals playing beach soccer or futsal. 

The mid-section of Pasir Panjang Beach is devoid of any coral growth, providing sun-worshippers with an excellent swimming area. You will be amazed by the colour of the ocean that ranges from deep blue to light milky blue especially during a sunny day.

For avid snorkelers, there is a family of baby sharks roaming around on the far left-end of the beach in a snorkeling spot called Tanjung Tengah. There is 90% chance of you spotting them, so this is an opportunity not to be missed! Otherwise, on the far right hand side is a decent snorkeling spot called Tanjung Mak Cantik.

Teluk Dalam Village

Considered the best beach on Redang and one of the best in Malaysia, this private beach is home to the exclusive Taaras Beach & Spa Resort (previously known as the Berjaya Redang Beach Resort). The sand is soft and clean and the sea is calm (at least it was during our stay). Rocky outcrops at each end of the beach attract some colorful fish but this is not the best beach for snorkeling unless you hire a boat to take you to the nearby coral gardens.
