It took us 15 minutes to reach the light house, sadly we can't go inside as it is operating. We can go at the side of the lighthouse and enjoy the view of the sea. Its a worth of 15 minutes walk. From the light house there is another way to the pulau intan which will be a bit tiring.... More

We took 17 minuets walk to the top and we were amazed by the beautiful sea-view once arrived to the top of the hill. We wanna take further walk to the beach but my 6 years old daughter was exhausted so no point we have to return to the resort.

We specially went here to see the light house.. it was a 10 minute uphill walk on tarmac road, making back and forth 20 minutes. Mind you, the light house is still operating therefore public isn't allowed to enter the gate.. so we walk around the light house, and get to see the crystal clear seawater (but only small part...

perfect for the health conscious. it requires us to hike for 15 to 20 minutes to get to the lighthouse. and if you want to continue the journey to the top of the hill you can continue your hiking and enjoy the sea view from the top of the hill. ocean scenery is very beautiful and peaceful.

Trying to incorporate some sight seeing into our food trip to make ourselves less guilty. Parking space is easy to find even on weekends, entry fee into park is 1RM. The route up the lighthouse is moderately easy with slightly steep gradient on well paved road. Upon reaching the lighthouse, there is nothing much to do other then taking a... More

Awesome place that you need to go! You can reach a private beach side if you take the road down from the other side of the light house. Prepare towel, water and mosquito repellent.

It is just 15km from PD town. Be there just before sunset. It would take 30 - 45minutes walk to the light house and worth the climb. The scene was awesome. Bring some extra drinking water as you will need it once you reach the peak. You can still walk down hill to get the beach view, if you still... More
