Blue Lagoon Port Dickson (also called Tanjung Biru) is a small but very nice beach in the Port Dickson area. It’s located about 17 kilometres south of Port Dickson town which is popular but more secluded than many beach choices in this area.
Weekends can be quite busy but pick a weekday and you might get it to yourself!
It is close to the Tanjung Tuan Forest Reserve which gives it both a beautiful backdrop and the fact that there is often wildlife to spot such as squirrels and monkeys.
It’s my favourite of the beaches in Port Dickson because it is so pretty and feels tucked out of the way – even though it’s very accessible.
Even on popular days, the Blue Lagoon beach Port Dickson can feel tranquil and away from it all thanks to the surrounding vegetation. There are beautiful big trees right on the beach to give plenty of natural shade.
The water is very calm and quite shallow thanks to natural sandbanks which protect the bay. This also keeps water sports away from the shore and helps with the peaceful and safe atmosphere.
This makes Blue Lagoon PD particularly good for non-swimmers and families. Kids will particularly like the rock pools which are revealed at low tide.
The sea does contain small coral reefs which can attract divers.
The Port Dickson Blue Lagoon also has some good facilities. There are toilets, a hawker centre and market stalls. It is very easy to spend a day here or you can combine a visit with venturing up to Cape Rachado.
There is also a playground.
You can see what Blue Lagoon looks like in the following video. Note that I shot this on a Monday morning. You will probably not be lucky enough to see it so empty!
If you are wondering if Blue Lagoon is worth your precious time while you are in Port Dickson, yes it is! Unless you are interested in water sports, this is the beach I recommend you head to first!
I also recommend you try to avoid low tide – it’s not quite as pretty then.
