Kapas Island - Terengganu

Kapas Island is a relatively unspoilt and isolated place filled with numerous white, sandy beaches lined with palm trees that offer cooling shade. With little development, the best thing to do here is to simply relax.

Kapas Island also has a sister island called ‘Gem Island’. Popular with backpackers, Kapas Island has a moderate range of resorts to choose from but you can opt to camp on designated sites or stay in dormitories.

The waters are home to an endless variety of hard and soft corals, which in turn, feed the many sea creatures that depend on it which include turtles, fish and shellfish. Hence, snorkelling and diving are popular activities but you can also wind-surf, kayak, boat and fish around the island.
