Avid divers and snorkeling enthusiasts can jump on a catamaran or speed boat to travel 19 nautical miles off the southern tip of Langkawi to Pulau Payar Marine Park. Made up of four islands, the park was established in 1985 as the first marine park in Malaysia. A floating platform off of Pulau Payar houses an underwater observation chamber to view the marine life surrounding the reef—perfect even for nonswimmers. Everyone else can dive under and get a first-hand look
at various types of coral and brightly colored fish. Langkawi Coral is one of the main tour operators for the park and can help organize day trips.
