Port Dickson has kilometers of fine sandy beaches fringed by Casuarinas, palms, and the intricate, above-ground root formations of the Banyan tree. A complete menu of leisure activities is available in Port Dickson, including water-skiing, canoeing, snorkeling, windsurfing, and sailing, all of which can easily be handled through the reception desk at your hotel.
At Kota Lukut, a mere 7 km from Port Dickson, stands the fort of Raja Jumaat, a renowned nineteenth-century Bugis warrior. The fort was built in 1847 to control the lucrative tin trade in the area. The road along the Malaysian coastline is very lovely and resisting to stop for a rest and a swim is almost impossible. Vendors along the road offer thirst-quenching drinks of coconut water and sugar-cane juice. Another rewarding site is the lighthouse at Cape Rachardo, built by the Portuguese in the 16th century in order to guide ships to the safety of Malacca's harbour. The lighthouse is still functioning today, and visitors can ascend its narrow spiral stair to the beacon, which offers a magnificent view of the coastline of Sumatra. The Cape is also a popular stopover point for migratory birds. From September to March, flocks of sparrows, honey buzzards, and swifts can be seen here, together with birds of prey, such as hawks and eagles.
To catch a glimpse of the locals at 'work', a night market comes alive every Saturday at an open car park next to the Petronas Petrol station on 4th mile. Lots of snacks, food and produce to buy for the weekend stay over.
