Port Dickson Beach
The popular beach of Port Dickson:
in Negeri Sembilan is also a town in itself. Years of
development has blunt its glitter but the quaint place still has some magic left to uncover.
Visitors can enjoy the usual swimming and water sports but those after untouched beaches should
head to Tanjung Tuan, a beach accessible only by a 30 minute trek through coastal forest or the
Blue Lagoon, a scenic and peaceful beach. Both are located near the Rachado Lighthouse.
Cherating the straits and the relaxed environment was one of the reasons for choosing this tiny seaside
village as a colonial beach resort.
PD's main attraction is its 18km stretch of white sandy beaches that extend from Tanjung Gemuk in
the north to Tanjung Tuan in the south. These are carefully protected by rows upon rows of
casuarina palms, coconut trees, and elegant Bayan trees. Located near Cape Rachado (Tanjung
Tuan), Blue Lagoon is the most famous picnic spot and is an excellent spot for the water sport
PD usually comes alive in August each year during the "Pesta Port Dickson". This annual event
draws in crowds from all over the country. This would be one great time to visit PD's beaches as
there would be several activities and cultural events relating to the life of the locals.
