Pulau Payar Marine Park in Langkawi

Langkawi Islands

Pulau Payar Marine Park is a popular site for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts keen on exploring Langkawi’s undersea action. Just 30km south of the main island, it is about 45 minutes away from the Kuah jetty point and you can take either a catamaran or a speedboat to get here.

Comprising four islands, the largest of which is Pulau Payar, and three smaller isles (Pulau Kaca, Pulau Lembu and Pulau Segantang) this marine park is spread over two nautical miles. None of these islands are inhabited and are strictly regulated by the Fisheries Department of Kedah to maintain their pristine condition.

One of Pulau Payar Marine Park’s best features is its Coral Garden, a secluded section of the ‘park’ with colourful coral beautifully protected and preserved due to its sheltered waters. Those eager to explore the park will have to obtain permission from the authorities (fishing is strictly prohibited) before venturing into the waters: alternatively you can join a tour group.

The park caters well to tourists with an extensive array of facilities ranging from picnic tables, barbecue pits, gazebos and restrooms set at strategic points throughout the park.
