Other useful information
There are sundry shops in most resorts selling daily essentials, snacks, drinks, tidbits, souvenirs and even beachwear so you don’t need to bring everything with you, although these may not carry a wide variety. There are also many food and beverage outlets especially at Pasir Panjang. Beer and alcoholic drinks are available for purchase by non-Muslims at some of these outlets.
Banks and ATM machines
There are no banks and no cash withdrawal machines (ATM) on Redang and at Merang. If you need to use banking facilities, use those in KT before going to Redang. The majority of resorts at Redang now accept credit cards so you need cash only for things like souvenirs, food, snacks and drinks from the various cafes.
There are in-house medical doctors with basic clinics at Laguna and Berjaya that are available to visitors from other resorts too so there is no need to bring a lot of first-aid supplies except for your own personal medication. Emergency medical cases are usually rushed back to the mainland for treatment.
Travelling with babies or young children
Bring diapers, infant food/formula and other essentials that your child needs. Resort shops do not carry such items. Some resorts, especially the bigger ones like Berjaya and Laguna, can provide baby cots and bath tubs upon request, and can also assist in purchasing these items from the mainland provided you specify in advance the brand and quantity required. The choices available may be limited, so if your infant or child has very specific needs, it’s better to purchase your own and bring to the island.
Redang poses a big challenge for wheelchair-bound users especially when one has to get on and off boats. The only way to avoid boats completely is to fly to Redang on Berjaya Air and stay at Berjaya Resort. Although a road has recently been built connecting the resorts at Pasir Panjang to Teluk Bakau where Laguna’s jetty is located, the access roads leading to some resorts may not be fully paved and resort grounds are often uneven or have steps making them difficult for wheelchair users to traverse. Most resorts also lack ramps and facilities for the handicapped. While wheelchairs can be accommodated in some of the bigger resorts, it is assumed that these guests can walk assisted or unassisted for short distances and are not fully wheelchair-bound.
Things to Bring
Some resorts use jetties, others may pick up or drop passengers off at the beach. Snorkelers may also have to wade out to snorkeling boats and wade back to shore upon their return. Sandals or water shoes can make the walk on the beach less painful especially during low tide when broken coral are exposed. Be sensitive to local culture and religion and avoid really skimpy beachwear. Bikinis are allowed but nude or topless sunbathing is out of the question.
Sunblock, UV protective clothing or skinsuits/wetsuits
We know you want to flaunt those tanned, toned muscles and curves but it’s better to wear clothing to protect against marine stingers and sunburn if you’re going to be in the water a lot (screaming in pain doesn’t go down well with that macho look). Clothes are environmentally friendly too. Recent years have seen growing populations of jellyfish around the world so it’s best to take precautions. If you must use sunblock, use eco- or coral-friendly sunscreen. Nidaria has a sunblock that also claims to protect against certain jellyfish stings (though not tested with Irukandji and Chironex box jellyfish).
Useful if you’re a mozzie magnet or planning to trek through the forest. Some repellants may contain chemicals harmful to corals and should be used only when you’ve completed your water activities for the day or else rinse off before going into the sea.
These can be rented from the resort but you may prefer to bring your own for hygiene reasons or if you require powered lenses. Powered masks are available for rental but availability is usually limited. If you have very young children, bring flotation devices as child-size life-jackets for rental are more suitable for older children. If you are diving, bring your certification card.
Personal toiletries and medication
Many resorts provide toilet paper, soap and little else. While basic toiletries can be purchased, it’s best to bring your own especially if you have sensitive skin or allergies. Sundry shops may sell only basic over-the-counter medication so best to bring your own. Don’t forget anti-seasick tablets if you can’t stand boat rides.
Ziplocs, dry bags and other watertight containers
These are useful for protecting personal belongings like passports, money, electronic equipment etc. in case you’re planning on bringing these with you on the boat during snorkeling trips.
for night walks along the beach.
if travelling on an overnight coach (aircond can be cold).
