Perfect location for snorkeling. There are four small beaches in Pulau Payar. From any of the beaches, you can swim or snorkel. The usual visibility is between 30-50 meters. There are plenty of harmless sharks (black-tipped) in the waters here. There are many other different fish including parrot fish, angel fish, dameselfish, rabbitfish, butterflyfish, clownfish etc. One of the best places to snorkel is under the bridge (jetty) where you can see the maximum number of fish and marine life.
