It may not be the perfect weather or the best corals or fishes you can see. But if you already on the island, why not take a ride and plunge yourself in the warm Langkawi water. The popular place for divers alike is Pulau Payar about 45 minutes boat ride from Kuah Jetty.
You can book your trip at the office of the Langkawi Coral at the Kuah Ferry Terminal, which cost around RM220 per day. For this price, the company will pick guests up from their respective hotels, provide lunch and the use of their reef-viewing platform. All their snorkelling equipment is also possible.
Equipment: Bring your own scuba gear...please..There's a rental gear if you want. But speak from experience, they are not well maintained. It's your life anyway..
You might not get fins your size (it's waaay too small for asian feet, i'm asian, but i have big feet..hehe) Don't let these small things get in your way.
Langkawi Yacht Club offers impressive facilities such as waterfront, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and sauna, deep sea fishing, sailing, scuba diving, jet skiing and speed boats. You can hire a yacht to discover sunset tour. It is also good place for spending evening time. there are 51 berths places available.
The Lush green Langakawi landscape deserves some exploration!
Grab your free maps from the airport and try to discover all the waterfalls in the region if you have the time.
Equipment: Remember your suntan lotion and wear gd hiking shoes. The waterfall areas can be dangerous and slippery with mossy green algae.
Some of the hotels, located on the beach, have sailboats for hire.
If you have several in your group this is a fun thing to do.
It is rather expensive though.
