Kapas Island

Have you been in Pulau Kapas? Pulau kapas one of the popular island located in Terengganu, Malaysia.  Pulau Kapas means Cotton Island in Malay and this peculiar name is attributed to the pure white beaches that are the trademark of this island. The name comes as no surprise once you have walked along these beaches: the sand is soft and white and slopes gently into the crystal clear water.

How to get there?

A taxi from Kuala Terengganu airport or the bus terminal costs RM 30.00 per cab for the journey to Marang Jetty. Boat transfer service may start as early as 7:00 and costs RM 25.00 per person (two way).
There are several resorts to choose from on two beaches. Almost every resort has a dorm. They are all in walking distance of the pier.

Where you can stay?

Kapas Island Resort is near  the jetty and is the biggest and most luxurious resort. It has a small swimming pool. The resort has its own boat service to collect you from the mainland.

Tuty Puri, is another luxury place with arguably the most of charm. It has standard rooms with a fan and the rooms have a shower. Also a Dorm. The hotel was built in 1993 and it is set on the prime beach in front of the beautiful white-sands of Pulau Kapas

Beauty island Resort has bungalows with fan and shower. Also a dorm.

Light House is more for the backpackers. It has a the relative isolation on a nice section of beach. Big wooden rooms.

Zaki Beach Chalet is a medium sized resort. Good food.  What you may not like : the limited space, whether in the resort or the rooms.

Mak Cik Gemuk a big resort. Off the beach and without charm. Rooms for up to three peoples.

Kapas Garden Resort. A-Frame huts without fan but they have a shower. The Dutch owner has a relaxed bar. It’s a  small place usually busy with expatriates. The bungalows are correct.

Things to do?

This island is not commercial island. So, here not much you can do.  But Pulau Kapas popular is because of the excellent snorkelling in the waters surrounding the island. There is an abundance of corals and other marine life, visibility is good and the water is shallow and calm. Because the coral is mainly around the rocky edges of the island, you can still go swimming off the beautiful beaches, even at low tide.
