Places of Interest

Ornamental Fish Centre

“Pusat Ikan Hiasan”, an aquarium and marine conservation facility run by the Malaysian Department of Fisheries. The centre is located at the northern end of Port Dickson’s Teluk Kemang beach and sea water from the bay is pumped into the centre’s storage tanks for cleaning and treatment before being used in their aquariums. The fish tanks are spotlessly clean meaning that visitors can obtain a clear view of the various fish, coral and marine creatures on display here.
Outside the entrance is the turtle nursery comprising a number of tanks containing turtles ranging from cute tiny hatchlings to juveniles. The species on show were Hawksbill sea turtles, Leatherback sea turtles and Green sea turtles (which were not green at all).

Army Museum Port Dickson

The Army Museum, known locally as Muzium Tentera Darat, is located next to a military base off the main road at 5th mile, about 7km away from Port Dickson town in Sirusa district. A property of the Malaysian Royal Armed Forces, the museum traces its exploits and achievements through history, trumped up with dramatised aspects and romantic story-telling. In addition to the museum buildings, the spacious grounds also house decommissioned military vehicles, including planes, tanks and artillery guns, and a memorial fountain dedicated to soldiers who served through Malaysia's war history. Open daily from morning till evening, entry is free for all visitors.

Ostrich Farm Port Dickson

The PD Ostrich Farm is located at 9th mile along the Port Dickson beach road; watch out for a signboard at left while going south from town. Besides ostriches, visitors can see peacocks, peasants, jungle fowls, monkeys and a strangely large number of farm animals. The ostriches are housed in open paddocks shaded by large trees; they can be feed with pellets bought from the entrance. For a fee, adults and children can even ride ostriches around a small circuit at the back for the farm. A restaurant on the premises serves cuisine made from ostrich meat, including satay. Open daily from morning till evening, tickets are priced at MYR8 per adult and MYR4 per child.

Tanjung Tuan Port Dickson

Port Dickson's best beaches are hidden away at the Tanjung Tuan coastal forest, about 17km south from PD town at the tip of Cape Rachado. Being a protected park, the beaches along this forested cape are beautifully preserved, with crystal clear waters and sparkling white sand, not unlike tropical island destinations. Sheltered from tourist and hotel development, visitors have to hike through jungle and scramble down hilly slopes to reach isolated beaches - each imbued with its own natural charisma and pristine scenery. Tanjung Tuan is also a lush nature reserve, with potential wildlife sightings and botanical treasures to appreciate.

From the lighthouse at the peak, a 1km uphill walk from the Tanjung Tuan entrance next to Blue Lagoon, a jungle trail leads through the coastal forest, passing by several entry points for small pockets of beachside. The most popular beach lies directly at the tip of the cape, which takes about 20-30 minutes of hiking following the signboards towards Pulau Intan. Here, contained within bays at both sides of the cape, are spectacular beaches that reveal themselves completely at low tide. While relatively small, the environment is unparalleled, with soft white sands and clear sea waters that gleam with a brilliant turquoise hue under a bright sun. Magnificent rocky formations and karst landscapes line the outlying edges of the bay, providing more mesmerising scenery for visitors. Continuing on the jungle trail will lead to more beaches, but smaller ones as the sea becomes murky towards Pulau Masjid.

Teluk Kemang Beach

Teluk Kemang is the largest and most popular beach of Port Dickson, located between 7th and 8th mile from PD town. Consequently, this beach stretch has the most number of hotels, resorts and apartments providing family accommodation. On weekends and public holidays, the beach gets unbelievably crowded with visitors, while the sea becomes frenzied from motorised water sports. Visitor facilities and amenities are abundant, including car parks, walkways, gazebos, bathrooms and zones for souvenir shops, hawker stalls and restaurants. A large square at the back hosts the annual Port Dickson Festival, but is used for recreational activities other times.Teluk Kemang has been promoted by local authorities as a 'Wellness Zone', emblazoned proudly on the arches around the park. The sea breeze, beach environment and mellow weather has been purported to offer therapeutic effects on visitors.
