About Port Dickson
Renowned as one of Malaysia’s best west coast tourist destinations, Port Dickson is the perfect place for tourists to simply ‘chill by the beach’. Recent developments have seen a new revival within the town. The golden beachfront, which stretches some 18kms along the coast, is Port Dickson’s most outstanding feature, alongside its colonial backdrop and laid-back feeling. Being only 60kms from Kuala Lumpur, this beach getaway is the perfect weekend retreat.
Both natural and man-made sites provide tourists with sightseeing entertainment while holidaying in Port Dickson.
With a long stretching coastline, Port Dickson’s beaches are the primary attraction for tourists. Many of the beaches are lined by the town’s most impressive resorts. Plenty of water sports are available, including water-skiing, windsurfing, and sailing. Fishing is a popular past time too. In is not uncommon to see anglers casting into the ocean directly from the shoreline.
There are two forts located just a short distance from the heart of Port Dickson. Fort Lukut stands about 10kms from the town, and has been here since the mid-1800s. Fort Kempas is slightly further away, but still an intriguing landmark to visit. Here, tourists will find a 15th century tomb which enshrines the highly noted Ulama Sheikh Ahmad Makhtum.
There are numerous other built structures that shouldn’t be overlooked. The Cape Rachada Lighthouse is a 16th century Portuguese lighthouse that is still operational.
