    Blue Lagoon

    by mansionion Written Nov 20, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Serene Blue Lagoon

    Located at the 11th mile of PD's coastal road, the Blue Lagoon is tucked away from the main road and far from the crowds.

    This beach hideaway is naturally shapped like a cresscent, offering a breathtaking view of the surrounding greenery and the Straits of Melaka from here. During low tide, it is possible to stroll out on its fine sand for about 200 meters towards the receeding blue sea.

    As it is a quiet and secluded spot, it is a favourite haunt for those seeking peace and calm, ideal for long walks and restful picnics. The lagoon is favored for swimming, boating, wind surfing and water skiing.

    Close to its vicinity is the historical Tanjung Tuan lighthouse and the Royal Rest House of the Yang Di-Pertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan (the Ruler of Negeri Sembilan). During the migratory season, it is possible to watch flights of migratory sea birds wheeling along the shore here in Blue Lagoon.

    Teluk Kemang Beach

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Teluk Kemang beach

    Teluk Kemang beach is the most popular beach for weekend visitors to PD among the other beaches along the 18km strech of PD's coastline.

    It is not suprising then as Teluk Kemang is quite touristy and has better facilities as compare to the other beaches. Apart from the usual eateries and changing/shower roam commonly found in most beaches, PD'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.

    Avillion Village Resort

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cak Lempong instruments on dispaly at Avillion

    This can either be a must see activity tip or an accomodation tip.

    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.

    PD Town Square

    PD Town Square

    Located at Teluk Kemang beach, PD Town Square is the main venue that play host to most of the beach resort's ceremonial activities, such as the annual Port Dickson Festival and new years eve countdown party.

    At the square, there is a Tourist information Office, stage for performances, open air arena and children playground. Food and souvenier stalls are also located close to the square.

    For children (and parents who want to keep their kids away from the beach), they can always enjoy either the horse, bicylce or miniature 4WD rides at the square.

    Water sport activities

    by mansionion Written Nov 18, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Canoe, banana boat or speed boat?

    There are plenty of water based activities to do in Teluk Kemang.

    Apart from swimming at the sea, beach goers can enjoy the banana boat ride or canoeing. For more adventurous stuff, you can try the jet-ski rides, water- skiing and para sailing. If you want to venture further, you can hire speedboat to go to other nearby beaches and small islands along the coastline of PD.

    Unfortunately the sea here is not really suitable for snorkelling.

    Wan Loong Temple

    by mansionion Updated Nov 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wan Loong Temple

    The Wan Loong Temple is located along PD's coastal road.

    Literally means "Dragon in the Sky", the temple is no doubt the bigest and most beautiful temple in PD. Looking stunning from the top of a hill, the "Great Wall" like retaining wall circling the temple and its location give it an impression of a secluded private premise that is not open to the outside world.

    Pantai Saujana beach

    Pantai Saujana

    Though not as popular as Teluk Kemang, Pantai Saujana beach do attract its own crowd particularly from guests of nearby hotels and resorts in its vicinity.

    Located at the 3rd mile of the coastal road of PD, the beach is close to Hotel Seri Malaysia and Avillion Village Resort - currently PD's only resort built on stilt over the sea. Something interesting here is the replica of various giant size sea creatures (crab, prawn etc) that decorated stalls and kiosks along the beach.

    Sun tanning anyone?

    by mansionion Updated Nov 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sun tan deck

    As Pantai Cermin beach is not that suitable for swimming, there is a sun deck here to make up for what it is lack off.

    So if you think of getting some tan, heads to Pantai Cermin and enjoy the tanning session in this secluded beach. Apart from the sun deck, there's a few BBQ pit scattered along the beach for those who want to have a BBQ party.

    Going to the beach doesn't really mean that you have to get wet here in Pantai Cermin.

    Crabbing!!!

    by sweetie_inc Updated Feb 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From catching to eating the crabs

    The one and only thing that I enjoyed doing here is to catch crabs!!!

    We managed to get 3 crabs in a day and the restaurant even cook them for us for free!! I had sweet & sour crabs for lunch!

    Isn't it the most best thing???

    The crabs were quite big and we caught them in the comfort of our very own chalet balcony!!

    The renting of the net is abt RM$10 per day plus another RM$5 for the bait (sliced squid).

    Lukut Museum

    by yipsufen Updated Oct 15, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some artefacts from the Nassau ship wreck
    3 more images

    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.

    P.D. Ostrich Showfarm

    by mansionion Updated Apr 21, 2005

    P.D. Ostrich Showfarm

    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.

    Pantai Cermin

    Pantai Cermin

    Pantai Cermin is located close to the Blue Lagoon but at the other side of the cape.

    As compare to the Blue Lagoon, Pantai Cermin is not that beautiful, more so as it is located in a mangrove area. However, the quiet beach should be just nice for a relaxing picnic or barbeque with freinds and family.
