|Pulau Payar is located 30 km south east of Langkawi and north of Penang Island.
This marine park extends over a number of islands with Pulau Payar being the largest. It takes an hour to get there from the Kuah Jetty by speedboat. There is a floating platform moored off Pulau Payar which has a restaurant and underwater observation chamber to view the marine life surrounding a reef. It is a good area for snorkelling or taking rides in glass-bottomed boats.
No form of accommodation is available on the island, only the Marine Park centre occupies its solitary beach. The best diving is to be found from the Western tip to the Southern and Eastern portion of Pulau Payar.
