    Breathtaking View, On Own Risk
    Climbing up on escalating steps took 30min. Path is clear. However once reach top u meed to descend on concrete stairs, half way the steps became wooden stairs,that’s the riskiest part as the damage is obviously life threatening

    Not really worth it
    15 min hike up 45 degree incline on sandy slope. Wear good footwear and prepare to sweat. Entry path was situated at rubbish area. Went during the weekend so it was full of people. I did not see the windmill functioning during my 4 days stay. I didn't think it was anything fancy. People were walking down the stairs at the D'Lagoon side to take pictures of the blue sea - but dangerous stairs as many steps were missing towards the bottom. Authorities should do something to prevent any mishaps.

    Quick hike rewarded with an amazing view.
    It's a good short, but steep hike up rewarded with a breathtaking view. Wished they fixed the jetty so more people can go down and explore. A portion of the jetty is cordoned off by barb wires, but some people attempt to climb down the missing stairs. However, you can already take a good photo even just at the top part of the stairs. The start of the hike is from the long beach, there is a signage near the campsite that points you to the start of the hike at the back of the camp site. The start of the hike is a bit steep, then after a few hundred meters, it will be an easy climb as the path is smooth. A few meters from the tower, you will find the two windmills cordoned by wire so you can't really touch the windmills. Follow the path around the windmills and you will see the stairs going to the Jetty. Enjoy! Bring your own water and some mosquito repellant.

It is a hot and humid hike, but not very long, and a nice change from snorkeling etc. It is, of course, abandoned, and not meant to be walked down to, as many of the concrete steps have collapsed, but it is offers a nice view and was well worth the challenge of trying to find - not signposted, certainly from the west side of the island. Google Maps got us there even without any meaningful GPS connection.

The windmill is about 30-minute walk from the Long Beach over jungle and rocky terrain—make sure you wear good non-slippery footwear! The view from the windmill itself is so-so as it is covered with trees, however if you walk shortly to the staircase area which leads towards jetty, you will be blessed with good views. Note that the stairs are quite broken and dangerous, so I won't recommend to continue down all the way to the jetty. Just stay for the good view and revert back to the windmill area. Thereafter, you can either trace back the path to Long Beach, or continue onwards to Landing Beach, Adam & Eve Beach, Turtle Beach or D'Lagoon Resort. We went to the secluded Adam & Eve Beach (which is beautiful but super hot in the afternoon) and the surprisingly gorgeous view from the laid-back D'Lagoon Resort.

The stairs at Kincir Angin certainly need to be repaired immediately. Thousands of tourists have hiked the hill to catch a glimpse of the stunning view. The authorities must place safety as its priority.

I spent half an hour climbing from Bubu Resort up to the top of the summit, it was exhausting during the hiking trip, but I guarantee you will feel worth it when you see the whole view of the South China Sea from the summit.

Easygoing hike up to the lookout point with a great view but you can clearly see that the place has not been maintained, which is a shame. Steps had corroded and fallen away so you can't get to the end of the deck unless you go off the route onto a rocky slope.

This attraction is located at Perhentian Kecil and will require some physical activity which you need to hike about 15 - 20 minutes (depends on your stamina). It is advisable to bring along a partner and wear a comfortable/proper shoes to avoid any injury.

Used to be in place in 2014 and the staircases are well maintained but I was caught in my surprised during my recent visit. There is no maintenance at all and seems to be lots of hazard due to corrosion. It is such a waste because this place has a lot of potentials due to it beauty nature.

The state government should do something about this before it cause any fatality. Visitors need to be extra careful and shouldn't jeopardizing their own safety for the sake of perfect view.

If you ask me, I will personally consider to come again to visit here once everything is fix and in place.

The Windmill Hike started from Long Beach. There were signages to assist hikers, and they were put up by the kind locals (unlike some other places with mass tourism that deliberately hide signages to confuse hikers). So please appreciate the kind effort and welcoming gesture of the locals (although some signages had Ads xD). Proper shoes to hike are advised, as it was quite steep at the beginning of the trail. Once you see the windmills, the viewpoint is located to the right. The view of the clear blue sea, green rolling hills and rocky cliffs, was a grand nature creation and a very rewarding sight.
