Merang Beach




"Merang is the jumping-off point to the magical island of Pulau Redang famed for its magnificent beaches and crystal-clear waters where in the shallows wild sea fish remarkably come to feed from hands."

Not to be confused with Marang, this stretch of beach is north of Kuala Terengganu and is relatively off the beaten track of most visitors to the state, though easily accessible by road. Locals, however, are well in the know of this "pristine beach haven" with long stretches of tall coconut palms, golden sands, gentle surf and emerald-coloured waters.

Nearby is the fishing village of Kampung Merang, from where one can hire a boat to go up the Merang River which weaves lazily through mangrove and peat swamps. And, if you are lucky at dusk, you may see thousands of fireflies display their glittering light spectacle. Merang is the jumping-off point to the magical island of Pulau Redang famed for its magnificent beaches and crystal-clear waters where in the shallows wild sea fish remarkably come to feed from hands.
