Major Scenic Point:

(1) Payar Island


Clear shimmering water surrounding this island is perfect for a spot of snorkeling or even diving. Having been cordoned off as a marine park in 1985, the marine life here has rejuvenated from the days of blast-fishing, trawling and heavy sedimentation. Now this park has been made a study centre for marine researchers and is one of the best dive sites in the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.

With this protection the fish have grown accustomed to the many strange visitors found dipping into their territory. These little freeloaders love the breadcrumbs and titbits that visitors bring along with them. And sometimes in their excitement, they mistakenly nip the visitors too! The little bites are not life threatening nor do they draw blood but can get a little unnerving for those whose closest encounter with animals happens to be the neighbor’s dog!
