Visit for the Batu Putih trail, and stop by the light house. Normally will spotted monkey at the forest, yet it is the first time spotted the Dusky Leaf Monkey [most likely, not 100% confirm] at this area, excited.

Short hike 60-90 minutes depending on what you want to cover.
You got to see an actual working light house from external building only. You can also take 2 trails to reach a elevated rock area for your instagram view photo of the sea from the top.

Serene location with a lot to offer for nature buffs and twitchers.
Bush walks are really great and not difficult.

Really peaceful place to visit

Only downside is that the rubbish bins are not being emptied so people are trying doing the right thing by leaving their rubbish there but it’s not being picked up.
Why leave more rubbish if you can see it’s not being collected, though?

Recommend it for a good walk - you should plan 2 hrs. Bush walk isn’t great for very young children
Bring water; bring back the container.

Visit here every time coming to PD. Beautiful forest on a hill jutting out into the sea.
Only RM1 entrance fee at the gate hear to Ilham Hotel. About 800m up the road to the lighthouse - then two options - climb steps to the right 100m before the lighthouse for the trail to Batu Buteh ( nice rocks with a view towards PD town - or continue past the lighthouse and follow the trail down to Pulau Intan on the southern tip of cape Rachado where there is a small beach and nice views. From Batuh Puteh you can climb down to the right to Monkey Bay and then back up to the access road near the entrance.

Best place to see sunrise and sunset. U can either watch the sunrise from the Lighthouse or go down to the beach. Very calming and the view is breathtaking

Perfect place for fishing.
Nice food and the beach is clean.
The place is cooling but beware of the rocks.

A very beautiful place where I enjoyed the solo trekking inside the jungle, just to discover the hidden Batu Putih beach.
It's a truly remarkable experience well worth the effort. It is safe too.

If you like for hiking activity, it's good for you then. Really love the greeny environment. It takes about half an hour to go up there. You can see the blue sea and corals from the top.

Entrance fees to the forest reserve is RM1. Long trekked up to the Cape Rachoda light house. Can't go in to the lighthouse because it is a restricted area. But can enjoyed the view from there. If planning to go there, ready your trekking shoes and some bottle water.

The lighthouse is in the Tanjung Tuan Recreational Forest.

Cost to enter is 1 MYR per person.

The walk is quite steep but it bitumen so thongs/flips flops are not a problem.

Entrance to the lighthouse is not available as it is still a working lighthouse.

The views as you walk around are lovely and there are other treks available off of the main one. Not very well signed so make sure you have plenty of water and good shoes.

Lots of monkeys but they are more interested in the bins and getting food scraps than people.
