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.
