The cape is located next to Pnb Ilham resort. Visitors have to register at the entry gate. The climd was a challenge for me as am 56 yrs old. The view was beautiful. You can see a whirlpool there.

The location of the resort is quite far from the busy area of Port Dickson. It gives you privacy to explore the beach and beautiful scenery of the cape.

Only a short tar-road ascend from entrance to lighthouse. Need about an hour. Allow for more time if you want to explore the other paths to beaches and lookout points.

A great place for a 10-15 mins morning walk and the scenery uphill was definitely worth the walk but if you're expecting a view from inside the lighthouse , you'll be disappointed as you wont be granted access into the lighthouse.

Just pity we are not able to get into the light house, we only view the sea by standing at the path beside it. Do take note you need to take a walk right to the hill top before you can see the light house. So morning session is favorable.

A good place to go for a walk up the hill and get a little exercise to get good view and enjoy the view from the top.

Which gets more rugged as you decend. It leads to a very nice beach. it is possible to walk back along the beach to the car... More

We visited this attraction by Dec 2016. We bought the tickets and paid the cash to the front staff but the staff did not give me any ticket. We walked slowly up to the slope road about 20 minutes finally we arrived at the lighthouse. The weather is nice. The sea view is great. As we know from the signboard... More

Always had this place in my bucket list as I love lighthouses. The lighthouse is still in use and after 5pm, you are not required to pay RM 1 as entrance fee apparently as the counter is closed. Sadly facilities are a bit worn down and the cliff area which ppl would often go for sun set watching shud be... More
