5. Cape Rachado aka Tanjung Tuan

Located in the hilly area of the gazetted forest reserve and wildlife sanctuary, this historic lighthouse is a popular bird-watching spot, and tourists can even choose to camp here overnight.

Cape Rachado is named after the Portuguese word for the ‘Broken Cape’ and it was built in 1528 after the Portuguese had conquered Melaka. That makes it the oldest lighthouse in Malaysia!

At that time, it was used to guide friendly vessels to the port and to keep an eye out for enemy ships. Now, it’s the perfect place for both locals and tourists to take a short morning walk!

Things to do:

  • Hike through the jungle to reach the isolated beaches that’re untouched by modern development
  • Enjoy the magnificent view of the sea from the top of the hill
  • On clear days, you can even see the neighbouring Sumatra island
