The beautiful island of Pulau Redang lies about 45 km north-northeast of Kuala Terengganu, or 22 km off Tanjung Merang, the closest point on the mainland. The Bugis people from Celebes, Indonesia were believed to be the first settlers on the island. Many of their descendants are now working the tourist trade in Redang while others have moved to the mainland. Over the years, Redang has grown to be one of the most popular destinations for tourists and divers due its pristine nature and rich marine environment.
