This Jetty never meant for boats or ship to dock. The name Jetty because it is physically looked like a Jetty and it is extended far toward the sea, the Straits of Melaka. The Jetty is a complex that house fine restaurants and Karaoke lounge. Nicely situated between Mahkota Hotel and Holiday Inn. The Jetty now starting to be a famous nightspot for Melakans to eat and to get amusement. You can choose to enjoy your food at the outdoor area and the wind from the straits will be quite strong. If the wind get you sneezing sit inside the the Bali Cafe will be good too.
