Cape Rachado Lighthouse, Port Dickson Reviews - Write a Review

  • 1RM entrance fee. Will take roughly 20 mins to walk up to light house. Toilet is at start point only. We carried our own drinks as they hike up drinks prices over there. Do take note, lots of ppl are exercising here and running, so, be careful when taking photos on top of cliff. Once you reach the top, the view is mesmerizing and sunset can be seen clearly. Just make sure to go early around 5:30pm and save yourself good seat! After the sunset, it gets dark pretty fast as there are no street lights. Do make sure and start your descend before 7pm. My wife saw and heard what she felt was rattle snake... it's jungle after all so be mindful of where you are going, surroundings and what you are stepping on :P

  • Very beautiful, will be nice if can get to the inside of the lighthouse.

  • Very long walk from entrance to lighthouse. Exhausting. Note: please wear comortable shoes, bring face towel, sweat like hell. Cannot go inside the light house area. Can walk along side only, very narrow route, lots of bees and long grass. View is okay. You can see the ocean. Dont come here. Hahahha. Penattt

  • Nice place to see sun set, there is no big space to set it's small.

  • A very great place for exercise and relaxing ! If you are here for challenge, don't forget your glove and nice shoes to prevent stone/wood cut!
