Pulau Kapas is an ideal island paradise with white sandy beaches fringed with shady palm trees making it a perfect retreat. The first impression is its laid back yet rustic ambience calling for pure relaxation. It offers a "home away from home" amidst a typical Malay village concept and hospitality.


Kapas Island is a small island consisting of merely a few holiday resorts. It will take just a couple of hours to stroll along the beautiful beach from one end to the other end passing all the holiday resorts. The other side of the island is however, only accessible through a jungle – trekking trail. One could view a spectacular sunrise over a private beach there.


Pulau Kapas offers a variety of adventures to sun and sea lovers. The hidden treats of nature's splendors are both on land and below the sea. You could track into the island's interior and amazed at the colorful natural flora and fauna along the way. Explore the most varied marine life among the many coral reefs around the island. Snorkeling and underwater diving is popular along stretches of shallow coral reefs of the island's western shore.



The island is just 4 nautical miles from Marang making it highly accessible from the mainland. The advantages of Pulau Kapas is its easy accessibility, wide range of activities and facilities. It is highly popular among backpackers as it is less expensive than other neighbouring islands yet offers equally good beaches.


July, August and the local holidays are the best times to go. An island famous for its clear waters, sandy white beaches and swaying palms, it is relatively isolated. Home to an infinite variety of hard and soft corals, the waters around the island abound with sea-shells, fish and turtles.
