Luggage and bags: Get a waterproof bag for your stuff if you go kayaking.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sunglasses on a string - good for kayaking - can't lose them if they go over board! Bring a cover up shirt if you are doing a lot of snorkelling and wear it all the time you are in the water to avoid getting sunburn.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring some DEET against the mossies. There is very little at all for sale on Besar, I was unable to find any anti-septic cream.
Photo Equipment: Bring an underwater camera if you have one.
Miscellaneous: A bottle of your favourite duty-free tipple is handy because some places either don't serve alcohol or make you feel a bit weird about asking for it. Also much cheaper and you can mix your own delicious cocktails with the local fruit juices.

Photo Equipment: This's a must have for taking pictures underwater. Kodak's is not as good as Fuji's. The color on Fuji is better compared to Kodak. Both of them cost the same, it's RM35 in KL. More expensive in the island, but with some hard bargaining; like my travel mate, Antonio, you can get it at a very decent price too. But we find shooting pictures underwater can be quite a challenge! Most of our pictures don't turn out well.

Luggage and bags: Backpacks are the thing to brin, not suitcases and trolly bags. When they drop you of the bost you have to wade through some water. So make sure, if you bring it, make sure you can carry it or else it will get wet.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring summer clothes as its going to be hot and there isn't much a/c on the island.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Definatly you want to bring some mosqueto repelant. Also advil etc immidium basically bring a first aid kit because if you some thing here you have to pay a lot for it. Also the doctor is a boat ride away so don't expect the emergency services are at your disposal.
Photo Equipment: I throughly recomend you bring an underwater camera. If you buy it on the island you'll have to pay a huge premium. The snorkelling is amazing here and you are going to want to have some record of it.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: While you can lounge around in you bathing suit its worth covering up in the eve to keep the mossies away.

Luggage and bags: Light weight or better with backpack. Forget the trolley bag, you are on an island aren't you? You want to drag it on the sands?
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Something light, like t-shirt, shorts, long pants if it gets cold and rain at nights, slippers, and for diving freaks like me, take along your gear although it is available for rent.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: unless you want to get the look of grilled lobster, bring suntan lotion. The island situated very near the equator, so the sun is HOT. And to put the mossies at bay bring insects repellant. It also available on the island's shops.
Photo Equipment: Lots of films and batteries.
