Port Dickson Warnings and Dangers

  • Toilets - Out of Order!!

    Be warned that most of the public toilets and showers on the beach are closed until further notice. We could not even find a public tap to wash our hands and feet after we were done at the beach. Your best bet is Lido Hotel which 50cents to change or shower.Its advisable to bring a few bottles of water for some basic washing.

Port Dickson What to Pack

  • Swimming Gear & Beach Items

    Forget about bringing your bulky beach equipments like plastic ball, tubes and floats, cramming them into your car boot. You can buy all these from the stalls near to car park area. Kids will be spoilt for choices on all the floats with different shapes and sizes. However, they may not be of good quality.

    Is it easy to get a taxi on the road or at the hotel of Port Dickson? Do I have to agree the taxi fare before the ride?
