The Pulau Payar Marine Park is one of the most beautiful and exotic marine parks in Malaysia with an abundant and colorful tropical marine life.
Pulau Payar is the most scenic marine park in the west peninsular. The marine park is claimed as the most beautiful due to the existence of coral reefs and clear sea water. It is the only marine park in the west of peninsular and is an-hour boat ride away from south of Langkawi. The Park is perhaps the best place to indulge in the pleasures of scuba-diving, snorkeling and swimming. It was declared as a marine park in the year 1985. Further, it is recognized as one of the best dives sites in the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
These islands are not inhabited, and that’s why accommodation facilities are not available here.. On the island of Pulau Payar, you can find many sandy beaches which are suitable for picnics and hiking trails. Just off the beach, you can get the opportunity of feeding baby sharks. The presence of crystal clear waters makes this park an ideal sport for snorkeling.
