LOCATION:
Located on Pulau Pinang to the south of Redang. A rather misnomer since the whole set of islands in Terengganu is actually a marine park, not just this particular island. Rather, the administrative office of Terengganu Marine Park is located on this small island, hence the name.

Most tour operators will bring tourists here for a snorkeling trip.

DESCRIPTION:

The main attraction would be the surprising variety of fish that call this area home. One can see a resident yellow-margin triggerfish (Pseudobalistes flavimarginatus, I kept seeing it every time I snorkel here), silvery pompano, gold-saddle rabbitfish, various specie of parrotfish (of blinding colours to be honest), red-breasted Maori wrasse, bluestreak cleaner wrasse (Labroides dimidiatus), virgate rabbitfish (Siganus virgatus), common damselfish specie such as Indo-Pacific sergeant and scissortail sergeant, moon wrasse, two-lined spinecheek (Scolopsis bilineata), peppered rabbitfish (Siganus punctatissimus), blue-lined rabbitfish (Siganus corallinus), blackeye rabbitfish (Siganus puelloides), etc.

Under the jetty is a century-old grouper the size of an adult man as well as elusive the moray eels. It can get too deep to see them though. The corals are not particular healthy due to its crowded condition (I estimate at least 200 snorkelers thronging to this place daily). Most corals are of hard types such as staghorn corals, giant clams, table corals, etc, and some colourful selections of christmas tree worm.

On the far right side is a shipwreck where one can snorkel at. Otherwise this place is excessively crowded with tourist and the quality of the coral is well below average.
