Tanjung Tuan

Tanjung Tuan or Cape Rachado (name given by the Portuguese) is a cape with a light house facing the Straits of Malacca. The lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in the country built in 1863. It has history in its timeline and one of them is the Battle of Cape Rachardo in 1606. Read HERE. What is unique about this location is an exclave belonging to Malacca.  It share the border with Negeri Sembilan.

Tanjung Tuan is a nature attraction some 18 km south of Port Dickson town. It is a forest reserve and wildlife sanctuary.

If you go to Port Dickson and would love some hiking adventure this place should be one of your choice. 

There's a lighthouse on top of the cliff overlooking the Straits of Malacca and down onto the Blue Lagoon. No! not the one that potray Brooke Shield. 

Entrance to the Lighthouse is through this gate next to ILHAM Resort

For a bit of an adventure, take the jungle trek. However do not enter when the day is getting into late evening. 

Note: This post was transferred from another blog of mine that I found while doing some housekeeping on that blog. The pictures might be out of date but I just want to share this place from my experience.
