Getting There & Away
Buses and taxis connect Marang, the jumping-off point on the mainland for the islands, with Kuala Terengganu. Several speedboat companies operate to Pulau Kapas but all keep the same timetable. Speedboats (adult/child RM40/20 return) depart from Marang’s main jetty at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm, with returns half an hour later from Pulau Kapas. Suria Link Boat Service will continue to Pulau Gemia if requested.
Taxis are usually waiting at the jetty in Marang as all boats arrive at about the same time. If you want to be certain of finding a taxi you can book one in Kuala Terengganu before you depart for the island or ask your island accommodation or boat-service companies to arrange a taxi.
The following boat companies can also book accommodation on the island.
