Pulau Payar (GPS: 6.0593, 100.04425) is a famous snorkelling destination in Kedah. It is located to the southeast of the Langkawi Archipelago. There are day tours to Pulau Payar from Penang as well as from Langkawi by speedboat. Visitors to Pulau Payar can stopover on a floating platform moored off the shore, and go all the way to the island, where it is possible to climb to the hill to the crest, for a panoramic view of the other side of the island.

The waters off Pulau Payar is crystal clear. The island and the neighbouring islands of Pulau Lembu and Pulau Segantang are part of the Kedah Marine Park. Collecting corals and fishing are prohibited on the island.
