I found this place by chance when we had a family gathering at PNB Ilham Resort in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan. The entrance to the site is just a stone's throw away from the resort. The pillars at each side of the entrance are so big and tall that it's almost impossible not to notice.
Even though it's so near to the hotel, where the address is in Negeri Sembilan, Tanjung Tuan or Cape Rachado is actually belong to the neighboring state's territory – Melaka. A quick check on Google found out that it is actually an exclave of Melaka surrounded by Negeri Sembilan territory.
In the modern day, the area has been gazetted as a wildlife sanctuary. Even though the whole area is more than 70 hectares wide consisting the green forest reserve, the highlight of the place is of course the prominent structure of the lighthouse at the top of the hill. Tanjung Tuan or Cape Rachado is a strategic place for bird watching activities especially during the annual bird migrating season. It is well known among the bird watching fraternity as a stopover point for thousands of migratory birds from nothern to southern hemisphere especially Honey Buzzard species. Other bird species include Swifts, Hawks and Eagles. The migrating season is between September and March every year.
Here are some of the pictures taken during my short walk in the morning to Tanjung Tuan Recreational Park:
