LOCATION:
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. There are a lot of resorts on this stretch, ranging for basic ones like Redang Reef Resort to the architecturally-wonderful Laguna Redang Beach Resort. The beach has the highest concentration of sun worshippers since almost all of Redang's resorts are located at here.

DESCRIPTION:

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 which is fronting Redang Reef Resort.

In short, activities galore on this beautiful beach. Just get your sun-tan lotions and sun-shade, then head here.
