Underwater World

On the sparkling south coast of Palau Langkawi, the largest island in Malaysia’s Langkawi Archipelago, visitors may be surprised to find a huge theme park set on over 6 acres with over 200 species of aquatic life. Underwater World is located at Pantai Cenang, and houses more than 5000 sea creatures in over 100 separate tanks, including the remarkable Hexagonal and Tunnel Tanks. Divided into three zones, Rainforest, Sub-Antarctic, and Temperate, the species of aquatic creatures at Underwater World range from tropical fish to Rockhopper penguins and fur seals. Daily feeding shows take place at mid-morning and afternoon.

  • Gasp as you enter Langkawi Underwater World’s foyer and come face to face with the amazing Amazonian arapaima – the largest freshwater fish in the world.
  • Take the kids for a trip through deep geological time at Langkawi Underwater World’s 3D theatre and learn about Michael, a prehistoric fish, and his life before becoming fossilised.
  • Stretch your dollar further when you shop at the convenient Zon Duty Free Shopping complex, before relaxing with coffee and lunch at the Neptune Café.

Langkawi International Airport is about fifteen minutes drive from Pantai Cenang, where Underwater World is located. While there are private shuttles operating to various hotels in the area, the island of Langkawi has little in the way of public transport, so if you want the most convenient option, hire a car or a motorbike for your stay. From the sea, Underwater World is accessible from main departure points in Malaysia such as Penang and George Town via the ferry which docks at the Langkawi Jetty Point. Taxis are also widely available on the island, as is bicycle and moped hire.
