LOCATION:
Pulau Payar (Payar Island) is located some 1-hour away from Langkawi's Kuah town by boat. Normally boat operators will depart from Kuah town around 9:00am and return back from Pulau Payar around 2:00pm.

DESCRIPTION:

Most boat operators will stop at this beach. There is an extensive network of boardwalk that connects from the beach at Langkawi Coral Pontoon to Payar Marine Park HQ. this beach is particularly beautiful, with crystal clear water and golden sandy beach. There is no food stalls here though, hence getting your food supply from your boat operator is vital.

Apart from swimming and sunbathing, the main highlight of Payar Beach is definitely the schools of different fish that throng to the area, mainly feeding on breads and crackers supplied by the snorkelers.

Also there is a colony of blacktip sharks at this beach which one can spot easily. What I noticed from my recent visit was that the sharks seemed to be getting bigger in size compared to my last visit 2 years ago. I wonder what will happen if the blacktip sharks keep on bludgeoning in size. Either they will move to other islands such as Lembu Rock or Kaca Island, or they will continue to thrive with the abundant food supply at Payar Beach.
