Home > Malaysia Places > Negeri Sembilan > Port Dickson


Malaysiaís Port Dickson (also known as PD by locals) lies just over 30km from Seremban and the airport at Kuala Lumpur. The region is famed for its long stretch of sandy beaches and is one of the most popular destinations in the country.

Port Dicksonís beaches

The beaches at Port Dickson extend for around 18km from the north at Tanjung Gemuk to the south at Tanjung Tuan. The beaches are edged by rows of palms, coconut and banyan trees and offer any visitor a perfect beach holiday. Visitors will find sandy beaches to soak up the sun, beaches with good fishing potential and the waters are warm and pleasant. Popular beaches include:

  • Blue Lagoon -- this is a quieter beach that will suit sun lovers looking for some peace and quiet. Visitors often enjoy hunting for crabs to barbeque in the evenings as the beach is a traditional home for crabs.

  • Telok Pelandok -- the beach here is gravel but the main reason for visiting this beach is the fishing. Visitors can fish from the bridge or from the beach itself and stand a good chance of catching cat-fish, sting-ray and cod.

Getting There

Kuala Lumpurís airport is served by over 40 international airlines -- it takes around an hour and a half to get to Port Dickson. There are train, bus, car hire and taxi options open to all visitors.


Port Dickson enjoys a tropical climate with temperatures ranging from 21ļC to 32ļC. Although always warm there is often the risk of rain.


The Malaysian currency is the Ringgit (RM). Visitors can convert money at local banks, money change outlets and at many hotels.

Eating out

Given its proximity to the coast itís hardly surprising that the local specialities revolve around seafood and fish! There are all kinds of other cuisines on offer from regional Malaysian dishes to more Westernised cooking.


Malaysia is a multi-ethnic society so visitors will hear many languages and dialects. English is often viewed as the countryís legal language so it is relatively widely spoken.


There are all kinds of accommodation options for visitors. These include hotels (from small family run concerns through to luxury hotels). Many people opt to rent chalets and bungalows and, in recent years, more and more locals have started renting out their apartments to holiday makers. Itís becoming increasingly common for visitors and locals to buy property in Malaysia either as a holiday home or as a rental opportunity.
