Pulau Gemia or Gem Island is a privately owned island, about 800 metres north off Kapas Island. Transport is by boat and it takes 15 minutes to get there from Marang Jetty. The jetty is 18 kms away from Kuala Terengganu, the capital of Terengganu.
An island known only to a few, Gemia Island covers about 9 acres and its closest neighbour is Pulau Kapas. The island has white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, beautiful corals and fascinating marine life.
Snorkelling can be done even without taking the boat out. There are many things to see near the shore – corals of different shapes, colours and sizes, sea urchins, swordfishes, butterfly fishes, parrot fishes, bumphead fishes, crabs, clams and lots of sea cucumbers.
The black tip sharks come close to shore near the rocky end of the beach to feed on small fishes. Every now and then you can see the fishes jumping out of the water as the sharks descend upon them. You can also hire a boat to take you further out for snorkelling, or even scuba diving.
If you have no patience for pottering around, visit the baby greenback turtles by the jetty. One of the beaches on Gem Island is used as a turtle hatchery. On the island the green turtle is the most common. But the Hawksbill and Olive Ridley turtle are regular visitors. After laying, the eggs are collected and transferred by Gem Island staff to an enclosure on the beach. This protects them from marauding predators such as monitor lizards, crabs and seabirds.
The rugged rock face of Gemia Island invites exploration and provides an ideal spot for bird watching and has an abundance of fascinating marine life. Gemia Island retains its peaceful, mysterious and quiet atmosphere and is the nest site for sea eagles, reef herons and many other birds. If you are a lover of sea sports, activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing and squid fishing are available.
