In the southern part of Port Dickson, there are 16 kilometers of sandy beaches and blue waters, attracting countless tourists from near and far. At the end of the beach, the cliffs of La Chau Duo are more than 100 meters above sea level. The stone crags below Cuihu Village burst into the sea and the coral reefs can be seen on the seabed. A short distance away from the village, visitors can climb up 63 steps to reach the top of a lighthouse built by the Portuguese in the 16th century. The lighthouse is equipped with a telescope for overlooking Luba Island of Sumatra.
