Alhamdulillah, managed to have some fun girls days out with beloved friends early this month (October). We planned to have our island getaway for quite some time, and we made it finally... And this trip was superduperfun!
We went to Pulau Redang (Redang Island) early October, luckily we got the time to go there before the resorts are close due to monsoon season November till March every year. We departed to Redang (by ferry) from Merang Jetty, and the journey took about 45 minutes. As we arrived at our resort, we were welcomed with the Redang's crystal clear blue water, which is so beautiful.
We stayed in Redang Mutiara Beach Resort, a quiet resort that is located quite far from other resorts, which is an excellent resort for those who prefer to stay in a private resort. For those who love a lively happening surrounding, I advice you to stay in resorts located in Long Beach area, as there is where you can enjoy an energetic environment around you. But for people who love to be in a more private area like me, Redang Mutiara Beach Resort is the right resort to stay in!
We took snorkeling full package, for our 3 days 2 nights stay, 3 times snorkeling, and 4 times meal per day. We went snorkeling at Marine Park Centre in Redang too, where most of colourful fishes and corals can be found easily not far away from the beach.
Snorkeling with bestfriends were so enjoyable, and we also grabbed our chances to swim around the beach happily! With the blue clear water by the beach, how could you say no to take a dip in the sea.. We were also lucky to get kind boatmen, which offered helps to us whenever we felt not so confident to go snorkel around the area of deep sea water, as they wanted us to see the magnificent and fascinating fishes and corals in deep sea water area (which is of course very different with corals and fishes found in shallow sea water area) ..
So, overall, Redang must be in your-must-go-place-to-visit list, as it welcomes you with its own beauty and attraction. Make sure you take care of yourself very well as you will be in the water most of the time when you are having vacation in an island. And don't panic while snorkeling and swimming, for you to enjoy your island getaway better. If you are good in diving (and confident to dive), some resorts in Redang also offer Diving Package (apart from Snorkeling Package), so choose any package that suits you best. And if you plan to go for a honeymoon in a romantic island, Redang is the island to go!
Vacation will be more fun when you are going with your besties! Me and my besties are planning for our other next vacations too, so let's enjoy our Mother Nature while we still can. ;-)
