Explore the intimate, privately-owned Gem Island that lies just off the eastern coast of mainland Malaysia. Surrounded by pristine waters and coral gardens home to myriad marine life, snorkeling, scuba diving, and sea kayaking are popular activities around the island. Enjoy days out under the Malay sun at white sand beaches and virgin rainforests dotted with rock formations that add to your adventures. Gem Island is part of a turtle hatchery program so expect to see bales of protected baby turtles during the season. With only one resort on the island, all visitors can holiday in seclusion. To the south, views of Kapas Island greet you from about 800 meters away.
