Cape Rachado Lighthouse, Port Dickson Reviews
Stunning and breathtaking view of Malacca Straits after struggling with the hike up to the light house. Sadly the light house is not open for public. Should put bigger signboard at the main road for easy access. But parking is quite limited as it is surrounded with resorts.
Why did people even suggest here as a tourist attraction. I'm not a hiker and the trails are pretty steep. Gone up to the "light house" area but not allowed to get closer. Walked dangerously around it to see a small sea view passed trees. Much regret. I rather take that one hour and do something else instead.
nice sea view. but u can’t enter the lighthouse. it take u around 10 minutes to the top.
It's cool but. A lot of facilities nearby weren't maintained properly. Also wear something sporty to climb the slope with
One of the most enjoyable hikes I've ever been on, but that was because of the company and the foolish/risky decisions that we took. The hikes are short but enjoyable. And they constitute a good cardio workout if you don't walk too slowly. Do go down to the small beaches, a couple of which were clean if somewhat rocky.
