Twenty Something Travel to [Sun, Sea & Sand - Redang Island Edition]


Redang Island is an island in Kuala Nerus District in Terengganu, which is an east coast state of the Peninsular Malaysia. The island is an important conservation site for sea turtles, coral reefs, and terrestrial habitats. It also has one of the clearest waters and finest white sands, which makes it the perfect place for snorkelling and diving! Still one of my favourite beach vacation destinations after so many years!

In this post, I will be sharing some pretty pictures we took during our stay at this breathtaking summer paradise. I will also do a follow-up post to fill all of you in with some information about the resort we stayed, how to get there, best time to visit etc. So stay tuned for that!

View from our beachfront resort 






We did some kayaking on the crystal clear water.




We also went snorkelling with sea turtles and fishes. They were just right in front of us. 



We saw not one but two sea turtles!





I guess everyone looks hideous underwater with their snorkelling mask on. 








We got to hold these little tiny cute baby sea turtles too!



Self-directed + self-timed pictures. *you need an incredibly rugged camera that is sandproof, waterproof, shockproof etc. for this because you need to plant your camera on the wet sand* (that's what you do when you don't have a tripod/cameraman/third party/third wheel/whatever you want to call it)



We decided to visit the beach after 5pm on the second last day to take some pictures before heading home. (That explains why we look really "dry" here)

Touch your hair and look anywhere except the camera. JUST NOT THE CAMERA.

Show off your burnt ass and just look away from the camera. 

Suck your stomach in, pretend you kicked something, look at the camera, now smile. 

Pop your sunburnt ass out, flip your hair, look in front!

Wait, is that a middle finger? No it's not. It's a failed peace sign that looks like a middle finger. Sometimes, it's all about that angle. 
The sky is turning dark. 


We never get jump shots right. 
I miss Redang so much and I'm still in awe over how stunning this island is as I'm arranging these pictures! I'm definitely coming back here again Redang!

All pictures are taken on Olympus Stylus TG-860.
