Up for an adventure?

Situated in Terengganu is a hill overlooking a stunning ocean view that'll make you feel like you're on top of the world.

Around 4km from Kuala Besut town, Bukit Keluang offers some of the best coastal scenery in Malaysia

It's said to only be a 20- to 30-minute hike to reach the peak, which is around 200m to 300m above sea level. But it can be pretty steep, with ropes to hold onto, at some parts.

Once you reach the top, there's a walkway along the cliff's edge, where you can take in the view.

According to some visitors, if you hike from the beach, it may take longer as the route is more challenging as opposed to the route from the back of the hill. 

You can also stroll along the beach itself, and explore the unique rock structures that form small caves.

Bukit Keluang Beach Resort is in the area, so you can bunk there for the night, before heading to the hill early in the morning or in the evening to catch the sunset. 

At the foot of the hill, there's a parking area, stalls, public restrooms, huts to relax at, and other activities to do.

If you're on a longer holiday, you can head to Kuala Besut Jetty, which is a 10-minute drive away from Bukit Keluang beach, and take a ferry to Pulau Perhentian

Bukit Keluang's location is below:

Enjoy a bird's eye view by paragliding at Bukit Bubus, which is one of the activities in the area:
