Pulau Kapas
 

Only 6 km separating the island from the mainland, makes for a convenient escape from modern living.  Home to an infinite variety of hard and soft corals, the waters around the island abound with seashells, fish and turtles. The island's laid back atmosphere is ideal for relaxation but the more adventurous will find it also a haven for swimming, snorkeling, wind-surfing, kayaking, boating and fishing.

 
 
 
Pulau Gemia
 

North of Pulau Kapas is Pulau Gemia. The depth profile of the reef around this island varies between 5 to 16 meters with hard corals carpeting the seascape.  Darting about the acropora hard corals gardens are chromis, damsels, wrasses, and parrotfish. Occasionally, a school of bump head wrasses will graze through the coral rubble foraging for food.  This island is owned by GEM Wellness Spa & Island Resort, a private island.  This resort are most recommended for privacy, luxury and Spa finder - Where Dreams Come True.

 
 
 

 
 
Berakit
 

This reef is located on the eastern side of Pulau Kapas. Two large boulders with coral growth are home to a number of reef fishes such as damsels, wrasses, blennies and gobies. This is also a good site to observe groupers and if lucky, bamboo sharks can be seen resting under crevices.

 
 
 
Japanese Craft Wreck
 

About 30 minutes north of Pulau Kapas is a Japanese landing craft wreck lying upright at a depth of 25 meters. Divers descend by the anchor line from the dive boat to reach the wreck. Sections of the metal hull and the anti aircraft guns are carpeted with soft corals and is home to a number of small marine animals.

 
 
 
Getting There
 

Travel south of Kuala Terengganu to the coastal town of Marang.  It takes about 20 speed boat rides to the island.
