Pulau Payar Marine Park, Langkawi
(3.2/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Take a trip to Pulau Payar Marine Park, a protected area of paradisal islands and underwater diversity. An hour-long boat ride finds you among the uninhabited landmasses, colored a deep jade green and jutting out from the turquoise sea. Relax on the sandy beaches and hop between the islands to find your favorite place, then head under the water to see the main attraction. Dive or snorkel to explore the large coral reef and the wide variety of colorful fish that call the marine park home.

  • There are far too many people arriving each day to the marine park. It is not big. With the area available for snorkelling very limited, and if you manage to fight your way to the "coral" then you wil...  more »
  • We booked a trip. We had to take the ferry from dataran square to the island. The water was clear. I did not snorkel past the floating island but there was not much to see. The island was crowded. No ...  more »
  • 出發之前就了解到這個島很美,而且可以浮潛賞魚。事實上,它真的很美,對住一望無際的大海。雖然這個島只開發了一小片沙灘,而且島上完全沒有手機信號,所以可以更加享受大自然的美麗。但是還是有很多不足,比如說廁所,和質量不好的潛水鏡。

  • Beautiful scenery and clear water which houses plenty of colorful fishes and baby sharks. We took lots of great photos there. Sadly , the corals there are mostly dead and bleached . 20 years ago, this place was awesome! The snorkels equipment might not work well for some, kept drinking sea water... Other than that, the infrastructure is poor, with toilets without doors and tap water. The wooden bridge along the beach is breaking down... Maintainance is very bad... Sad.. The food provided was not delicious.
  • I would give it a okay-score for this place compare to the marine park in Redang. Sea water is pretty clear with fishes. I went with one of the package offer by Coral Island - RM 150, include of hotel transfer, packed lunch (don't expect too much on the food, I reckon to BYO), ferry ticket, goggles, life jackets and entrance for marine park. Full of rocks and corals, have to swim to further to check out the sea creatires. Btw, I saw baby sharks!
  • Sangat indah
  • First Experience of snorkeling. Nice!
  • Best place to learn snorkeling. But not for those who has already experience :)
