Pantai Bisikan Bayu, also known as Pantai Dalam Rhu, is just a scenic 50km drive south of Kota Bharu, Kelantan’s capital. Around the village of Semerak, gentle breezes rustle the casuarina trees lining the beach producing a hushed sound that, locals say, sounds like a soothing whisper.
Surfing is good at certain times of the year, and wind surfers will find great conditions here during the North-East Monsoon from November to April.
Yet nothing beats resting in the shade of the tall casuarina trees, staring out to sea, listening to the whispering wind and sipping on a cool coconut.
It’s situated near Semerek, Pasir Puteh, which is about 50 km south from Kota Bahru town. From Kota Bahru town, get on to a taxi and it will take a journey of 45 minutes. Alternatively, you can board a bus from the main terminal in Kota Bahru in bus No.3 to Pasir Putih and then take bus No.96 to Kuala Besut.
