Address: Tanjung Bidara, Malacca Malaysia

District » Tanjung Bidara


Tanjung Bidara Beach is located about 20km northwest of Malacca, en route to Port Dickson. While it's facing the Straits of Malacca, it offers a wide piece of sea and since it's located far from the road, it's quite and calm.


Tanjung Bidara Beach is one of the beaches on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, just about 2 hours away from Kuala Lumpur city. Hence, it's a popular short get-away destination for the city folks. While it's not the best beach available in Malaysia, it's much nearer and easy accessible compared to other islands located on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Therefore it's still a widely visited beach in Malaysia. Though the water is slightly murky, but it's off set by its white soft sandy beach. The main beach is at the Tanjung Bidara Beach Resorts, a comfortable resort where most visitors stayed in.

Apart from the beach front accommodation, there are also many activities around like water sports, beach volley ball and other amenities in the hotel. With just a short drive away, Malacca town is just around the corner where you can enjoy other activities. For food lovers, head down to Jonker Street for some local nyonya cuisine and visits the interesting museums and historical building around.
