Pulau Kapas tour packages & holidays
From the coastal fishing village of Marang, it only takes about 15 minutes for a speed boat to cover 5 km to get to Pulau Kapas, Malaysia. "Kapas" in Malay means cotton. The island gets its name from the pure white sandy beaches. When on holiday in the island, you can choose to stay in a dorm room, air conditioned chalet or a more luxurious room on Gemia Island. If you want something more natural, you can opt to camp in the area. Pulau Kapas in Malaysia is ideal for couples and people who like to be in close knit environments.
Kapas is known for its crystal clear waters which provide a peaceful environment for fish, turtles, corals and other marine life. The island is most popularly known for snorkeling. However, you can also enjoy other activities including fishing, kayaking, boating, scuba diving, windsurfing, canoeing, jungle trekking and swimming. If you are traveling as a group, make time for some action.
The top attractions in Kapas are corals and marine life, which are visible through the clear waters. You will also be attracted by Murai Batu, a famous song bird that the locals say has 23 different melodies. You can laze below the palm trees standing on the sandy beach and waving their leaves and listen to the song bird. What a good way to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life! From the comfort of your hammock, you get a perfect retreat while listening to the music of the ocean to soothe your nerves.
The best time to travel to Pulau Kapas is during the squid jiggling season that runs from May to August. Squid jiggling is done at night and carried out on specialized boats. Make sure you take photos at the island; you do not want to lose the unforgettable memories.
