Although you are swimming near to the beach here in Pulau Kapas, beware of stepping on this sea urchin especially during low ride. Friend of mine stepped on some urchins and it was quite a painful experience for him. Wear boots for safety.

As the groceries and goods are being transported from the main land and we the tourist do not have a choice even. Foods, cigarettes and mineral waters are being sold in higher price than the mainland. This what I had experienced during my last visit.
Fun Alternatives: Buy few packets of cigarettes & water before boarding the boat to Pulau Kapas. For foods, we still need to buy from the island.

The reefs surrounding Pulau Kapas ranges in depth from 3-20 metres. It has good marine life and coral despite being located so close to the mainland (only 6km from the coastal village of Marang). Varieties of fish that can be seen here include Moorish idols, Wrasses, and Butterfly fishes.
The best time to go diving is between the months of May and October as the visibility is excellent. However, it is best not to visit the island between the months of November and February as it is affected by the northeast monsoon. There can be days when the rain is heavier than usual and the waves can get quite big.
During the months of April to August, green and hawksbill turtles come onshore to lay eggs. Pulau Kapas has also become a popular place for squid fishing especially in the month of June.

Favorite thing: On the way to Pulau Kapas with slow boat. If you also choose the slow-boat, i recommend ear plugs too; the noise(put-put-put...)is infernal and you have to shout if you want some conversation.
But the feeling is unbelievable; sitting on the deck, sun is shining and you can close your eyes and smell the salty South-China Sea.
