The Avillion Village Resort could be added to the must see places in PD, even if its just for a short look-see visit. As PD's only resort build almost entirely on stilts, the ambience and view from its reception area to its resort is quite interesting. While here, check out the various displays of Negeri Sembilan culture and tradition stuffs scattered all over the resort, such as the bullock cart and the musical instruments for Cak Lempong.
Another resort on stilts is currently under cosntruction in PD but I doubt it will be as interesting as Avillion Village Resort.
A great place to swim, relax and watch the sunset.
If you have any local methodist Christian friends, then you can rent the methodist centre rooms for as low as RM60.00 a night.
It has attached bathroom, twin beds , hot shower and air-con. It has a nice compound to relax and is beside the sea.

We manage to drive up to the bottom of the lighthouse in PD which is known as Cape Rsahdo or Tanjung Tuan. But we did not quite make it up there. We changed our minds after we were told it was a 20min walk up. I can assure you we did not go up cause we were with 3 kids who were sure would groan after 5 mins or so. Or perhaps it was my wobbling knees and legs looking for an any excuse to avoid the climb up....
Before heading to the Avillion Village Resort, we had buffet as dinner at jetboat club. The building is colonial style and has big balcony to view the sea. The ambience is somehow like in the second world war. It's old and sollowful...
Port Dickson offer one of the best beach getaways from KL-southward. It's very convenient & ones can enjoy really beautiful sunset at PD's beach.
Just about an hour drive from Kuala Lumpur, what can you ask for more?
Teluk Kemang beach is the most popular beach for weekend visitors to Port Dickson among the other beaches along the 18km strech of Port Dickson's coastline. It is not suprising then as Teluk Kemang is quite touristy and has better facilities as compared to the other beaches. Apart from the usual eateries and changing / shower roam commonly found in most beaches, Port Dickson's town square with a Tourist Information Centre and open air stage are also located here. For accomodations, there are plenty of hotels and chalets in Teluk Kemang vicinity - some of them are just walking distance to the beach.
Here water sports and beach activities are abound here. You can enjoy beach volleyball, canoeing, speed boat rides, banana funboat rides & beach buggy ride. The beach is not that clean and rather crowded with families picknicking and school-children playing water and sand.
Beach-goers beware: There's no free seating on the beach chair here, you have to rent it. One set of four beach chairs and an umbrella costs you RM15.
The museum gives an insight into Lukut's golden era as the capital of the tin trade. Visitors can discover artefacts from the Nassau shipwreck, a Dutch East India battleship which sank off the coast of Cape Rachardo (Tanjong Tuan) in 1606. Some artefacts include canons, porcelain and china wares, urns, coins, microscope, etc. It showcases the archeological finds of the area as well as the intriguing history behind the fort. You need to take off your shoes prior to entering the museum. On the upper floor are exhibits on weaving, textiles and farming tools.
After visiting the museum you can make your way up to the fort ruins. Only the walls and the wells remain. You have to cross the now dried up moat to get to the centre of the "complex". You can drive up there if you want to but it will spoil the fun of walking up from the museum. The ruins of the Lukut Fort, built in 1847 to protect the town's booming tin trade, is an interesting spot for history buffs. Other attractions here include the legendary `poisoned well', purportedly used to punish criminals in the ancient days.
History and archeology buffs will find this museum informative and satisfying. Nice thing is that it is free of charge! Photography is allowed here.
If you’re into beaches I’d recommend the beaches at 4th mile. Almost white sandy beaches. They’re about 500m wide and one of it which is pack towards weekends/holidays is just opposite of Hotel Sri Malaysia. The other wanted wear is behind of Bayu Beach Hotel & Royal Port Dickson Yatch Club (R.P.D.Y.C).The other must try beach is at Tanjung Tuan Hotel walking distance from R.P.D.Y.C. Here I’m sure ull enjoy the sunset and later on for dinner, local food by the beach.
Do check out the view at the Cape's Recardo Light House. Ive sneaked in once and it was crazy beautiful..But only do it if u have the balls to. ;) Bring along ur cams im sure ud want to take pics.
If you happen to stay at the Avillion, let the kids have a go at the petting zoo. They got all sorts of animals there. Chickens, ducks, peacocks, turkeys, rabbits.
I went before bird flu became a real threat. Don't know if it still operational.
I enjoy organizing a BBQ at Beach.
Make sure you bring along a guitar & some simple musical instruments and here you goes, a live entertaining band! If not, just drag along your MP3 player & plug-in pair of external speakers ;)
Port Dickson, can be a nice place to organise team building event. The beach is spacious and no much tourist around. Thus, you can have as much outdoor beach activities as you like.
Apart from the beach, P.D. also has other attractions to cater to the whole family such as this Ostrich Park Showfarm. Apart from ostriches there are also few other animal species on display here such as birds, rabbits and crocodiles (yes, crocodiles!).
It is more like a mini petting zoo here then an ostrich showfarm. Nevertheless, the ostriches are the star attractions here with activities centred around them - ostrich race, ostrich ride, ostrich related souveniers and last but not least - food items made from ostrich.... There's price to pay for being a star I guess.
