Pulau Kapas or literally translated as Cotton Island is an island located 6 kilometres off Marang, Terengganu, Malaysia. There is a smaller island known as Pulau Gemia or Gemia Island which is located north of Pulau Kapas. The island gets its name as the local people’s reference to its white beaches. Promoted as a “diving and snorkeling paradise”, the island has a lush tropical jungle, crystal clear seawater, pristine white sand beaches and to top it off, coral reefs in the surrounding waters. In comparison to the other islands, Pulau Kapas, as a marine park, still maintains its natural beauty; development works happened less frequently here. Therefore, visitors may have to prepare cash in-hand and get ready for lack of consistence in electricity and Internet access – all these as an equal trade for a magnificent view of the island and its beaches.

From the historical point of view, Pulau Kapas and Marang as a district in a whole was established way back in 1839. Initially it was administered by the district dignitaries which oversee the villages within their own jurisdictions. Then the system was changed with a single district officer which administers the river districts that makes up Marang. The benefit is received when the first district office for Marang was built in 1915. When the British made their way in the 1920s, J L Humphreys which is the very first British commissioner for Terengganu state has introduced a new territorial management system that includes Kuala Terengganu, Kuala Berang and Marang under the Central Colony jurisdiction. Post-1985, the Marang district was revised to add another two sub-districts, Bukit Payong and Alor Limbat into its jurisdiction.
