What parent hasn’t dreamt of attaching a fake shark fin to their back and chasing their own children through the surf to create the perfect family holiday memory? You can do that and more when you visit Malaysia and make your way to the beaches near your plush Port Dickson accommodation. Located just 95 km south of Kuala Lumpur, this coastal district offers sun and fun, along with water skiing, wind surfing, snorkelling, and sailing.
Things to Do in Port Dickson
Live out your childhood mermaid (or merman) dreams by visiting the Blue Lagoon, a stunning, tranquil seaside destination that is in fact very blue. Popular with visitors for its beauty, you won’t find a place that better exemplifies “tropical island getaway”. Nearby Cape Rachado is an exclave of the state of Malacca; you can tour its famous lighthouse and learn more about the history of Portuguese influence in the area. Unlike Kuala Lumpur accommodation, which is often chosen for its proximity to exciting urban attractions, visitors gravitate toward Port Dickson hotels for their access to some of the country’s most beautiful beaches.
Getting in & Around Port Dickson
As part of Peninsular Malaysia, the city is well-connected to Kuala Lumpur by road. Head onto the Seremban-Port Dickson Highway from the North-South Expressway to get here. Buses run frequently and are easy to navigate. You can book your own wheels with one of Wotif’s awesome car hire deals, so you can spend as long as you want exploring on your own. In town, public transport is reliable and there are plenty of taxis to take you where you need to go.
