Long journey, it takes mon than an hour from Langkawi Jetty Pier. The beach is small and dirty. In front of the beach there is a couple of big platforms. Crowd place difficult to achieve because there is a floating bridge. Few fish . Not worth the time you spent.

Don't be fooled by the pictures, it's not as crystal clear as portrayed. The corals are dead, the toilets/changing rooms are dirty, the food provided is terrible. Simply put, the place is poorly maintained. Bring your own lunch pack as there's nothing at the island.

The snorkeling was okay, but not worth the price. I've been to other snorkeling site in Malaysia at a cheaper price, and Pulau Payar is by far the worst. The snorkel area is so small, it just wasn't worth exploring.

However, it's a good place to bring kids as you can see fish and baby sharks from the shore.

I spent most of time at the platform, enjoying the view from up there. The view is okay, but it's definitely not something that I'd recommend to others.

There’s renevation going on at the main place of marine park but no one tells you that when booking. So there’s only one small spot on the beach and about 100 japanese. All corals are dead. You can walk to the main place where guys doing reno, there’s more clean water and you can be almost alone

We did the more expensive platform trip and it was well worth it. When we arrived to organised chaos, the tide was out and snorkeling was only an option from the platform. Only after 1pm or so could the beach goers actually snorkel out far enough to see anything.
English information was scarce and food was disappointing, and the boat home left 10 minutes early, not sure what would happen if you were still enjoying the underwater viewing chamber since there were no English announcements!
Would recommend the platform over the beach option

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!

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 see/do/eat etc. The choices will suit people of all ages. The "Park" is a boat trip away... and the reefs are "home" to baby sharks, and many varieties of fish and "plant/reef life". One can take a glass-bottom boat, or go snorkelling, or, if "certified", scuba is possible. The meals also cover a wide variety of options. All in all, it is an enjoyable and memorable activity-- which can cater to your interests- whatever they may be!

I hope that this Review has been helpful.

We had an interesting day when boating to Pulau Payar Marine Park. Did some lovely snorkeling and diving. Honestly speaking this activity is over prices for what you get. If you are a family of 3,4,5 people, it costs you a leg. Anyhow, we still had a good time with the fishes.
