6 Twilight Zones in Melaka

The historic state of Melaka does not need any introduction. It is so rich in history, food, culture and heritage, that this state was recognised as one of UNESCO’s Heritage Sites. Apart from these factors, Melaka is also known for her beautiful sunset. Here are 6 of Melaka’s zone.


Klebang ‘Sand Dunes’

A scenic sunset awaits you at the Kebang Sand Dunes. The coastal town along the Malacca Strait located within 15 minutes drive from Central Melaka. Expect breathtaking scenery, with amazing lighting during golden hour. We suggest you drive early from the Melaka city as walking to the Klebang Sand Dunes might take a while from your parking.

Pantai Puteri

Experience a beautiful panorama as the sunsets at Pantai Puteri, facing the Straits of Malacca. The sounds of waves crashing against the bronzed sands of the beach will be sure to engulf you in peace. Formerly known as Kundor Beach, Pantai Puteri is located 20 minutes away from the city. If you’re someone who loves watching the sun melding with the sea, this is the spot for you.

The Shore SkyTower

The Shore SkyTower is the tallest man-made skyscraper in Melaka! It has an observation deck on the 43rd floor that offers a splendid panoramic bird’s eyes view. The view stretches out to Melaka city, Straits of Malacca, Pulau Besar and other islands, while in the distance stands Gunung Ledang.

Masjid Selat Melaka

Standing on a man-made island, Pulau Melaka, this gold-domed mosque gazes dreamily, particularly in the dark. It always looks like the mosque is floating when the tide is high. This location also serves as one of Melaka’s spots for the best sunset views. Imagine watching the sun going down like it’s becoming one with the sea and the skies changing hues as the sun sets.

Kuala Sungai Baru

Another beautiful beach in Melaka, do we need to say more? Kuala Sungai Baru is a mukim in Alor Gajah District, located between Kuala Linggi and Pengkalan Balak.

Skydeck @ Hatten City

The Skydeck offers a 360° panoramic view of bustling cityscapes of Melaka City as well as the Straits of Malacca. From here you will get to experience the best of both worlds - the calming sea and bustling city. This is a good spot to see the hues of the sky changing as the sun sets at the Straits of Malacca and fades away.
