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.

Nice walk upto it. With monkeys everywhere. Sea views were nice. We couldn't enter the light house. When walking back down the access road you can take a right turn down a narrow footpath. 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

Sadly facilities are a bit worn down and the cliff area which ppl would often go for sun set watching shud be... More

It took us 15 minutes to reach the light house, sadly we can't go inside as it is operating. We can go at the side of the lighthouse and enjoy the view of the sea. Its a worth of 15 minutes walk. From the light house there is another way to the pulau intan which will be a bit tiring.... More

We took 17 minuets walk to the top and we were amazed by the beautiful sea-view once arrived to the top of the hill. We wanna take further walk to the beach but my 6 years old daughter was exhausted so no point we have to return to the resort.

We specially went here to see the light house.. it was a 10 minute uphill walk on tarmac road, making back and forth 20 minutes. Mind you, the light house is still operating therefore public isn't allowed to enter the gate.. so we walk around the light house, and get to see the crystal clear seawater (but only small part...
