|Port Dickson - Negeri Sembilan
The coastal resort of Port Dickson (PD) is a popular weekend retreat on Peninsular Malay’s south-western coast. It is situated about an hour’s drive from Seremban. Port Dickson has one of the longest beaches in Malaysia, offering holidaymakers ample room to frolic under the sun.
Its sunny beaches, line by tall coconut trees and shady casuarinas, are lapped by the gentle waters of the Straits of Malacca. Originally a town where charcoal was made and was once called Arang, it was later sought to be developed as a port. While it never did develop into a full-fledged port, PD's popular beaches attract thousands of weekend visitors from the cities.
PD's main attraction is its 18km stretch of white sandy beaches that extend from Tanjung Gemuk in the north to Tanjung Tuan in the south. These are carefully protected by rows upon rows of casuarina palms, coconut trees, and elegant Bayan trees. Located near Cape Rachado (Tanjung Tuan), Blue Lagoon is the most famous picnic spot and is an excellent spot for the water sport enthusiast.
