Snorkelling and Diving Payar Island Marine Park, is the number four best activity to do in Langkawi.

Discover undersea paradise. Snorkel & enjoy incredible rich marine life. Get your ticket online. Daily departure form Langkawi, Pulau Payar Marine Park is a very popular site for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts keen on exploring underwater paradise. Just 30km south of the main island, it is about 45 minutes away from Royal Langkawi Yacht Club, Kuah, which is our meeting point.

Beautiful fishes, baby sharks and nice emerald green water.. it was a wonderful and refreshing snorkelling experience. There are thousands of fish and lots of little black tip reef sharks all around the shallows. 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. If you're into scuba diving, the best diving is along the reef system that skirts the south, east and west of Pulau Payar.

During the dive, sometime, the visibility might not be good (at about 5m or so) but the wrecks can still visible. Most of the boats are reduced to just a broken hull with bits and pieces like the engine, propeller and other remains of the boat scattered around. They are mostly covered with hard corals and several anemones with clown fishes. Other varieties of fishes like the pufferfish, angelfish, lion fish, snappers and a huge grouper on the sand. There are alot of sea urchins around the wrecks as well.


Even when you snorkel from the beaches and go about 20 meters into the open sea, you can sea baby Black Tipped Sharks. Don't get scared, they never do any harm and shy away when they notice a human being close by. Take an underwater camera so that you can prove to others that you actually swam with the sharks that big. There are of course many other different kinds of fish that you can see in the waters here including parrot fish, angel fish, dameselfish, the rare rabbitfish, butterflyfish, anemonefish etc. One of the best places to snorkel is under the bridge (jetty) where you can see the maximum number of fish and marine life.

Dive Sites

The are about 15 dive sites scattered around the Pulau Payar Marine Park islands. There is a house reef dive site just off the shores of Pulau Payar near the Visitors' Center for the beginners; and for the more advance, the dive spots near Pulau Segantang offer deeper dives with stronger currents. I was only diving for a day during my visit, and these are the two (more popular) dive sites that I had the opportunity to dive in.

Coral Garden:-

The Coral Garden is located at the southern end of Pulau Payar and has got to be the most popular dive site in Langkawi. The average depth around this dive site is about 15m, and as its name suggests, is teeming with marine life and corals. Here, you can spot eels, pufferfish, snappers, batfish and lots of Titan triggerfish. There was also one part of the dive where 3-4 giant groupers swimming around together.

Sunken Boat at Pulau Kaca:-

To the east of Pulau Payar is the small island of Pulau Kaca. This is the only site in Langkawi to get a taste of wreck diving - there are a couple of fishing boats and several pods that have been sunk to a sandy depth at about 15m.
