I took advantage of the camping on the island. It was a beautiful location right on the ocean. The island was easy to get to from the mainland with several ferry services available. It seems to not be as well known as some of the other island destinations, so there were few people on the beach. We rented some snorkeling... More

We stayed at gemia and kayak to kapas island. It offers great scenes of aquatic adventure. You can snorkeling or scuba with tons of spectacular corals and fishes. The water is crystal clear and if you are lucky, u can see the famous clown fish aka nemo and baby sharks. Take your sweet time by relaxing by the beach, and... More

My first time visiting this island was 6 years ago. Now after 6 years, it's still the same, just the way I like it :) In Pulau Kapas you get your own privacy, it's quiet, and suitable for those seeking for a perfect weekend getaway. I hiked Bukit Singa, snorkeling,and camping instead of staying in a chalet. Pulau Kapas got... More

Getting there according to some people is 15 minutes more or less with speedboat and the ride to this island itself is adventurous! :D It's smaller than its much bigger siblings up north but it offers a feeling of tranquility and peace as it wasn't too crowded and not very commercialised which is perfect for those who wants to just...

The island is rather small but the waters are crystal clear. It is only 10 - 15 minutes by boat from the mainland at Marang. Its a great place to relax and reflect on life as there is not much distraction in the form of night life activity. I am not a beach person and my trip of 3 days... More

We were spending 2days 1night camping at Pulau Kapas. Staying at campsite (comes with kitchen, toilet, shower, prayer room for muslim) with affordable price. The food quite expensive. We went for jungle trekking to bukit berakit for about an hour and spending our afternoon for swimming, cliff jumping and taking pictures at its blue lagoon, and it was beautiful! The... More

Kapas Island is one of the most beautiful and relaxing places you will ever visit. It's truly an island paradise that has a strange power to keep you there longer than you planned on staying. It's not a rich glamorous place with tons of 5 Star Resorts or expensive restaurants. It's a very minimalistic island, which is what makes it... More

It is a beautiful island, no streets, no cars but also no real facilities. Be prepared for simplicity in all terms. It was a beautiful experience, we got to know very nice people and snorkeling or other water activities are amazing. Beaches are right in front of the jungle and are super! There are not to many accommodation options so... More
