Pantai Dalam Rhu Beach, Kelantan
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.
But 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.
Follow the interstate highway south of Kota Bahru for 50km until you reach the charming town of Pasir Putih, which means ‘White Sand’. The beach lies just past this town.
