Gem Island is exactly that - a gem. Tucked away in the waters hugging Malaysia’s north-east coast, it’s a tiny tropical hideout and home to just one boutique resort. During this trip, you’ll spend three days on the Island, swinging in the hanging chair outside your water villa and staring out into turquoise seas. The island has its own turtle hatchery and beneath the waves that lap the shore, you can snorkel with sea turtles.

Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival on Gem Island

As the boat sets off from the mainland you can already make out the shape of Gem Island on the horizon. Just 15 minutes later you’ll step onto the jetty of your tiny island resort. Once you’ve checked in you can begin to soak up the island atmosphere. The rest of the day you can keep yourself entertained with swimming, sunbathing or sitting in your hanging chair with a good book.

Gem Island - Kayaking & Free Time

The next couple of days are almost free for you to do as you please. We’ll arrange a kayaking trip and you can paddle off in search of abandoned beaches. There’s a colourful reef beneath the waves, so grab a snorkel and dive off the kayak to swim with the tropical fish. Both islands support turtle conservation and there’s a hatchery right next to your resort. Asides from this, your time is free to spend as you wish.

Departure from Gem Island

Three nights is probably enough on quiet little Gem Island; just enough time to recharge your batteries and fully enjoy this tropical paradise. However, if your Malaysia holiday allows it, you might want to stick around a bit longer. Just let our friendly Malaysia travel specialists know if you’d like to spend a couple of extra days here, perhaps to finish that book.

“Malaysia is packed with variety; from its cosmopolitan cities to its wild jungles. Here, I’ve snorkelled in beautiful waters and eaten my weight in creamy laksa noodles! My customers also love the ease of travelling around, hassle-free. ”
