How to get to Redang Island

Redang Island is located just off the north-east coast of Peninsular Malaysia in the state of Terengganu. The island lies south of the Perhentian Islands.

The most convenient route to Redang Island is by air to Sultan Mahmud Airport (TGG) in Kuala Terengganu, followed by a short boat ride.

From most international destinations this requires first flying into Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL), followed by a connecting flight to Sultan Mahmud Airport (TGG).

From Sultan Mahmud Airport, it's a 12-minute taxi ride to Shahbander Jetty to board the ferry to Berjaya Jetty, which is located on the south side of Redang island. The ferry trip usually takes 1 hour 15 minutes and operates three-times daily.

Alternatively, you can take a 40-minute speedboat ride from Merang, around 30km (18mi) north of Kuala Terengganu.

The resorts offer transfers from the airport and jetties by prior arrangement.
