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.

  • 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 :)
