For a unique glimpse at what lies beneath the archipelago, Underwater World Langkawi is a must visit attraction. Covering an impressive six-acre footprint, it’s home to more than 200 different species of marine and freshwater fish, as well as sharks, seals, penguins, giant rays and more. The aquarium even has its very own Amazonian arapaima, the biggest freshwater fish species on the planet.
A six million litre underwater tunnel tank steals the spotlight and offers visitors a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in Langkawi’s colourful underwater ecosystem. The site is divided into three sections, the Tropical Rainforest, Temperate and Subantarctic. An Educational Resource Centre inspires and informs, while a 3D theatre screens short, ocean-themed films.
Underwater World Langkawi is located at the southern end of Pantai Cenang beach, neighbouring the duty-free shopping centre. It’s located 18 kilometres from the town of Kuah, and just 3 kilometres from Langkawi Airport. As Pantai Cenang is one of the island’s most popular beaches, the area surrounding Underwater World Langkawi is brimming with luxe resorts and fantastic dining options.
Langkawi is famous for its natural beauty, and Underwater World is committed to protecting its slice of paradise. The centre aims to educate and entertain, as well as raise awareness on the importance of conserving the delicate aquatic ecosystems of the Langkawi archipelago.
