Hiking at Windmill Perhentian Island (Kecil)

If visiting Perhentian Island Kecil at the beautiful outside of Terengganu coast, don't forget to do an activity - Hiking at the windmill.


The hiking point starts at Long Beach near MIMPI Perhentian Resort. It will be highly recommended that you start your climb around 4.00 p.m. Bring some water and use comfortable footwear. It will be an 850 m hike and will take around 15 to 25 minutes.


As it is an unnamed road so you can't depend on google maps that much however it can guide you (rather than nothing), along the way, you will see a signboard directing you toward the windmill station. The man-made path is challenging and quite stiff but it's not that hard to climb. Don't go alone. Last time, although I was on a solo trip, I met with another group of travelers heading towards the windmill. The path or road heading up to the windmill will go through thick forest and a lot of junctions. Just follow the signboard or google maps. Beware of monitor lizard. They are very healthy.

When you reach Windmill, make sure you take 5 minutes to walk to another side to visit the beautiful Windmill Point! Breathtaking view. Don't go too far down the stair as it was abandoned quite long ago. The structure is fragile and dangerous, be careful.


Take a seat, relax and enjoy the view! Snap Snap snap.


Apart from sitting in the hot sunny sun and going snorkeling, hiking to Windmill Point is worth trying. Let's go!
