Formerly, the site was only a modest fishing village, but it has been completely transformed into a state-of-the-art marina with a complete array of berthing services. Additionally, the stylish Perdana Quay at the venue is a contemporary harbour-side complex, which features an elegant boardwalk with an array of waterside cafes, shops, and bars.

Today, the marina services a multitude of locally based as well as visiting craft, especially yachts of all kinds including the extravagant super yachts. Presently, the park has evolved into a self-sufficient township and in fact has the distinction of being the sole such community in the whole of the region.

The International Water Festival held in the early part of the year provides an opportunity for visitors to involve themselves in numerous games and water-themed activities.
The waterside cafes and restaurants are classy establishments offering a variety of cuisine such as Russian, Japanese, Italian, Arabic, Western, and Continental specialties. Many tourists come to the park to dine at these establishments and to socialize with the experienced yachters and seamen who often frequent the venue.

This is an attraction that will prove captivating for almost any visitor.
One of the best ways to enjoy the charming outdoor ambiance of the park is from a stylish 5 star hotel in Langkawi that promises to take care of all the details whilst you embark on your sightseeing adventures.
