Port Dickson started life as a small town for the production of charcoal. For a while, it was also called Arang, meaning "coal". It gained prominence during the colonial era, when the British used it as a port. They gave it the name Port Dickson, after the officer in charged - some claim that it was named after Sir John Frederick Dickson in 1899.
Today Port Dickson has evolved into a major beach destination, and an escape for folks from Kuala Lumpur over the weekend. Among the beaches at Port Dickson include Si Rusa, Teluk Kemang, Tanjung Tuan, and smaller stretches including Teluk Pelandok, Teluk Kubur and Kampung Sungai Sekawang.
