Park outside the gate & pay MYR 1.00 for adult. Wear a good sport shoes as some roads seem steeper. Main path is paved up to the lighthouse but a few path branches out to forest/ beach.

Nice walk up to Cape Rachado. Easy walk and you can choose to jog to increase the intensity. Avoid 4.30pm-5.00pm as there are less people and more mosquitoes. Remember to spray insect repellent or wear long sleeved t-shirt with long pants.
