Hailed as one of Terengganu’s best-kept secret, Lang Tengah Island is a smaller, more secluded getaway located between the islands of Redang and Perhentian.

From the time you arrive, the magic atmosphere of Lang Tengah Island will enchant you. The waters are crystal clear, the view stunningly beautiful and the environment totally peaceful. There are only three resorts on the island, giving visitors total relaxation and lots of privacy.

Lang Tengah is a very small island. A round island trip in speed boat only takes 10 minutes. The beach is narrow and land is limited. However, Lang Tengah Island gains it advantages from its size. Due to the limitation in the land, there are only 4 resorts operators on the island.

This is somehow limiting the number of visitors to the island thus reduces the chances of environmental pollution to the island while offering more privacies to the holiday seekers who seek for a piece of quite and peaceful land.

Swimming or diving in the sea of Lang Tengah Island is a pleasant and wonderful activity for several reasons. Besides the not resistible blue-blue sea and underwater world, due to less crowd on the island than others, it is free from the hubbub not only while you are having your lazy afternoon in the resort but also when you are snorkeling or diving looking for your favourite fish and coral. Dark purple fan shaped coral is among the most common coral in the Lang Tengah waters.

If you are energetic enough, go for a 90-minute guided jungle trekwhich winds through a couple of hills and pristine coves. An alternative route involves clambering through the interesting rugged rock formations along the coast. You will see the different view of the island while sitting on the rock, viewing fishing boat retuning home after a long hard day. It is a great place for a short escapism from the hectic traffic and deadlines in the city life.
