Additional Information

Introduction

Due to years of erosion, Kapalai is technically no longer an island, but rather a sandbar. All buildings on Kapalai are built on stilts that rest on an extensive underwater reef. The island’s only resort, Kapalai Resort, is a perfect destination for weddings and honeymoons. Gazing out over the ocean is like being surrounded by a giant aquarium, as crystal clear waters provide a breathtaking view all the way to the sandy bottom.
