The short hike up to the windmills leads to the lookout point. The view is very beautiful but unfortunately the lower stair cases have not been maintained. Several of the stairs were rusted and some were missing, be very careful!

Went there early this month with another 5 friends. Our boat had to brave very choppy waters and rough high waves to get to the island.
The island is peaceful and is not really developed. A resort staff told us that it has to remain that way as tourists have remarked that one of the reasons that they go to Perhentian Kecil is because it’s nature is still unspoilt (monitor lizards can be seen quite frequently in bushy areas). Trekking can be done on the island. A famous trekking place would be to the no longer used electricity generating windmills and the still used electricity generating solar panels.
Snorkelling can be done too (packages start from as low as RM50).

Great view of perhentian from the top. It will be tiring if you are not fit to hike up but it will be worth the sweat!

The place is located at a vantage point and fenced off. Nevertheless the view from the platform beside it is breathtaking and you can have a nice overlook on both side of the island. It is not well maintained though so take an extra caution
