Pasir Panjang Beach, or affectionately known as Long Beach, is the longest stretch of white sandy beach in Redang. It is located on the eastern side of the island. This long beach is cut into two separate bays by the rocky outcrops of Tanjung Tengah, which Pasir Panjang Besar on the northern portion is significantly much longer in length. There are a lot of resorts on Pasir Panjang Besar, ranging for basic ones to higher-end establishments.
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 Besar is 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.
