440 miles from Singapore
The moorings on the east coast of Pulau Payar are for the dive and tour boats, but if unattended are good for a lunchtime stop in calm weather. There are plenty of beaches ashore and an underwater observatory for those who don’t want to get wet.
North of the anchorage are huge floating barges complete with waterslides and recreation facilities for the hordes of fast ferries coming daily from the mainland and Langkawi. Plenty of activities and dive trips can be booked ashore near the small floating pontoon.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only. They should not be used for navigation. Please refer to Official Hydrographic Charts of the respective countries.
