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
First time visiting Pulau Payar and I'm mesmerized with it's beauty. You can catch small sharks and other colorful fish. It's truly amazing! more »
There are many choices of boats, meals, and activities which are available leaving from the Main Jetty in Kuah. It is worthwhile giving some thought prior to going regarding what you really want to..... more »
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.
