An avid beach-goer will never be able to resist Pulau Redang as there are so many good beaches on this island. In fact, it is said there is no single bad beach on Redang. You will find silky smooth, sparkling white sand beneath your feet at all resorts, with the exception being Redang Island Resort. Although debris and pieces of broken coral are deposited on the beach by stormy weathers and strong waves, the sands of the beach are gradually restored over time as new sand is being laid. The majority of travellers would agree that Teluk Dalam has the best beaches, followed by Pasir Panjang and Kalong.
Teluk Dalam Beach
The white sandy beach at Teluk Dalam Kecil
There are two distinct beach stretches at Teluk Dalam. One of the beaches is at Teluk Dalam Besar, a location where there is no operation of resort, while the other beach is located at Teluk Dalam Kecil, which is where Taaras Beach & Spa Resort is. The waters there are calm and crystal-clear, making it a perfect place for swimming. A hilly outcrop separates the two stretches of beach but a road on the hilltop makes it easily connects both beaches. Besides that, there is also a 60-minute jungle path connecting Pasir Panjang to Teluk Dalam Besar’s beach.
Long Beach (Pasir Panjang)
The Long Beach of Redang
Pasir Panjang is aptly named because it is a long and wide beach with a ‘V’ or birdwing-like shape. The longer northern stretch is formed by one of the wings while the other wing forms the shorter southern stretch, and Tanjung Tengah is the place where both wings meet. A walk from the southern tip where Redang Reef Resort located, to Redang Holiday Beach Villa at the northern tip, would take around 15 to 20 minutes.
Teluk Kalong Beach

Each of the three beaches at Teluk Kalong is markedly smaller than of those at Teluk Dalam and Pasir Panjang. Despite that, you can truly enjoy the beach here to yourself as there are relatively few resorts and travellers at Teluk Kalong’s beaches. The only Teluk Kalong beach accessible from Pasir Panjang is the northernmost beach.
