If you have tried snorkelling in tioman or phuket, then this place will disappoint you greatly. There are too many visitors squeezed onto a very tiny beach, really need crowd control Fishes are plenty but the corals are dead. The toilet and shower stanks, doors cannot be closed. Do bargain with the various tour operators for a cheaper rate.

We paid for a day trip to Pulau Payar and what the agent told us was very different then what we got. In the morning we had to wait 3,5hours before we could swim in the sea (we were picked up at 8,reached island at 11.30). Morning shuttle from our hotel to the ferry, another 1hour transport to the island... More

The beach area is short and and water is a clear turquoise ideal for snorkeling. There is a good variety of marine life and we spotted many fish varieties... More

The RM150 paid is worth it. The fishes are many however the corals are dying. Most of them are being stepped and appears whitish.There is no proper washroom, just a saltwater bath.

The Pulau Payar Marine Park is located about midway between Penang and Langkawi. We took a day trip to this island from Langkawi. You can swim or snorkel here. You can look at the corals and fishes through a glass bottom viewing platform, but this option cost extra. One of the enjoyable things to do here is to feed the... More

My family spent a wonderful day at Pulau Payar. It's suitable even for small kids as the beautiful marine fishes are even swimming at the shallow beach. Kudos to the customer service folks and considering the number of tourists there, they are able to organize in a very well co-ordinated manner from hotel pick-up to island and back to hotel....

Highly unorganised place. Unlimited number of tourists. Overcrowded place with no control over the acts and omissions of the tourists. Please avoid if possible.
