Glorious sandy beaches and clear blue waters are what attract most visitors to the Perhentian Islands – and rightly so. But there is more to the islands than that. Perhentian Kecil, where BuBu is located, also has some very interesting tracks and trails through the lush tropical rainforest that covers much of the island. If you want to try out jungle trekking in Malaysia, this is a good place to start!
Moreover, we at BuBu can offer you a choice of guided hiking trips to suit your age, experience, energy and enthusiasm.
To get a taste of the jungle and at the same time enjoy some fabulous views, we recommend our one-hour Windmill Trail. This takes you along a short path through the jungle towards the north of the island, then up a comfortable climb to the island’s two windmills. Once at the top, you will have a breathtaking view of the island, together with its golden beaches and the surrounding crystal blue South China Sea. Then take a short walk, down some steps, to a small sandy bay where you can have a dip in the sea to cool down.
The above trek is available either in the late afternoon (when the weather is a little cooler), or as a Sunset Trek for those who would like to witness a splendid tropical sunset from an ideal vantage point on the top of the island.
Feeling more energetic and adventurous? Why not try out our full-fledged two-hour Jungle Trek. This takes you southwards through the more heavily forested part of the island. Wind your way along a range of paths and tracks with the help of our local guides. Who knows? You might see some interesting wildlife. You will also have the opportunity to visit the small local fishing village on the way.
