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.

Pulau Payar Marine Park Reviews
We took the hour-long ferry ride from Langkawi to snorkel at the marine park. The coral in the snorkeling area was in bad shape, mostly dead or broken. However we did see a wide variety of reef fish, ... more »
Wir haben die Tour auf Langkawi gebucht und wir müssen sagen, dass es einfach nur ein Turistenepp ist. Man verschwendet einen Tag und zahlt dafür nicht wenig.

You don't see coral reefs, they're already dead. An ingenious negative example of how man destroys nature. That lunch was awful. The variety of fish was very limited. There was a lot of rubbish on the beach and it was very tight. No opportunities to lie down. Simply not recommended at all.
This place has gone down hill fast. I was here about 12 years ago, and it was pretty awesome, with clean water, locals feeding baby black-tip sharks, plenty of space. This time around, the experience was terrible. It looks like they are renovating the place? because I didn't see the pier structure, but a temporary floating pier. The big ferries dump their passengers onto this overcrowded platform, then, the small ferries take them to the floating pier, 30 meters away. Maybe it is the Chinese New Year period, both places were overrun, and at lunch time, they turned into refugee camps, no joke. A few days later, on the Chinese New Year Day, I saw the Jetty Point at Kuah, (the ferry pier that takes people to the Marine Park), had such a traffic jam the likes of which I've only seen in Manila. How could this many people all arrive on the little Marine Park? The "Refugee" situation is turning into a crisis! Avoid this place, if you have dived or snorkeled in better places. The visibility was like 3-5 meters only.
Terrible Experience. Nuff Said. I guess everyone would agree with me. My advise, take care of the maintenance and get new contract for the food service provider. The existing one the worst.
