LOCATION:
On the rocky coast of western Redang, only accessible by boat. Located about 5 minutes away from Redang's only fisherman village and passing by Pulau Pinang, where Redang Marine Park is located. There is no beach here. The snorkeling can only be done off the boat.

DESCRIPTION:

The highlight here is probably the medium-sized boulder rock that almost touches the surface of the water. At the top, there are a few sea anemones growing on it, giving snorkelers a great chance to see the marine animal up close.

This snorkeling spot is very isolated from the public, hence you can expect the coral growth to be prolific, and indeed it was the case during my snorkeling trip here. There are sections where various types of soft and hard corals grow together, creating nice underwater coral gardens. There are also multi-coloured christmas tree worms thriving on the wall of Porites sp. corals. Other than that, you can expect to see table corals, staghorn corals of various colours, Montipora sp. corals, etc.

As for the fish variety, apart from the much-expected clown anemonefish, you can also see damselfish, swarthy parrotfish (Scarus niger), Pacific blue-dot rabbitfish (Siganus tetrazonus), black-blotch foxface rabbitfish (Siganus unimaculatus), red-breasted Maori wrasse, common foxface rabbitfish (Siganus vulpinus), etc.
