Pulau Langkawi- This tropical island is a well-known beach destination for Malaysia holidays that is within easy reach of Kuala Lumpur, thanks to regular low cost flights. It boasts soft white beaches, swaying palm trees, azure sea and loads of great restaurants - a recipe for a great Malaysia trip. The nearby Pulau Payar Marine Park is the focus of Langkawi's diving and snorkelling day trips. It is located in the northern part of the Straits of Malacca, thirty kilometres south of Pulau Langkawi. The marine park has used abandoned boats, car tyres and concrete blocks to create an artificial reefs system which is now home to a whole host of sea creatures, and this makes for a really memorable Malaysia diving experience. There is a floating platform that is used for day boats to moor and also as the base for snorkelling and diving trips. The most popular dive site is Coral Garden, at the south-west of Pulau Payar island, where you can see the moat vibrant soft corals.
