Where to go in Terengganu – experience Bukit Keluang or “Keluang Hill”

A sight for sore eyes – The beach outstretching the Keluang Hill coastline

Keluang Hill Beach, a beach area located in the district of Besut, Terengganu is a favourite spot for locals to hang out and spend family time with. With a very wide stretch of beach area to accommodate so many people at one time, Keluang Hill Beach is one of the most popular beach around the area.

Located in the district of Besut, the place is about 2 hours drive from the main city of Kuala Terengganu, and serves as the perfect layover spot for tourist who plans on visiting the Redang Island and Perhentian Island, as both of these magical paradise islands are accessible by boats and ferries departing from Kuala Besut Jetty.

White sandy beach, clear blue water, and a bright sunny day. The perfect trinity.

If you do plan on coming here, here’s a few options on how to do so:
– from the city of Kuala Terengganu, take a public bus to Jerteh (2 hours 15 minutes). Then take a local cab from the bus station to the beach (approximately 15-20 minutes)
– take a public cab from the Kuala Besut Jetty
– if you plan on visiting the twin islands, you can ask your driver to stop by the beach on your way to the jetty. They’d probably charge a bit more though. But, negotiate away!

The Keluang Hill itself, on the other hand, is famous among recreational hikers who hike up the hill to get that amazing view of the sun rising over the horizon. This place is one of the very select few places in Malaysia where you can actually recreationally-hike the hill and enjoy stunning sunrise view at the top. Although, the team did not get the opportunity to hike the place for that stunning sunrise view, you guys can google them up to see, how much is it worth the adventure to explore and get the view.

At the parking lot area, you’ll see locals selling all sorts of food and beverages, so rest assured, you will not be hungry here.

Safe adventure!
