The Marine Park Center is located on Pulau Pinang (not to be confused with a Malaysian state of the same name), a small island adjacent to Redang at south that faces the bay where the main jetty sits. This popular tourist attraction is practically always included in tour itineraries offered by hotels and resorts for snorkelling trips around the island. A small ticket fee of MYR5 is levied on visitors who gain access to a small but picturesque beach and information gallery with charts, diagrams and dioramas. The immediate waters around the marine park are home to troves of colourful fish with abundant corals in the deeper sections. The park also houses a sea turtle hatchery.
