Merang is 40 km 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 loong stretches of tall coconut
palms,golden sands,gentle surf and emerald coloured waters.
Nearby is the fishing village of kampong Merang by the river which weaves lazily through mangrove and
pet swamps,and if you lucky at dusk,you may see thousand of firefly display their glittering light spectacle.
Merang jetty is the jumping off point to the magical island of Pulau Redang famed for its magnificent beaches
and crystal clear water where in the shallows wild sea fish remarkably come to feed from hand.-Vitualmalaysia.
