Amid the coastal areas of Terengganu lie a handful of islands – nine, to be specific – that are popular with holidaymakers both local and international.

Pulau Redang and Pulau Perhentian are the most popular (and biggest) ones, while smaller islands like Pulau Gemia and Pulau Kapas attract mostly daytrippers. Somewhere in the middle of the marine park is Pulau Lang Tengah, a small, underrated island that’s perfect for all sorts of travellers, from families and solo backpackers to scuba divers and island hoppers.
