General surf information

Biha is a long right hand reef break, with a number of take-off zones. Biha can be an option if Ujung Bocur is blown out. This break varies dramatically depending on the swell size and direction, on bigger days it can be very heavy and for the experienced only. The reef is very 'chunky' so try hard not too get dragged onto it.

 On bigger days the beach break is extremely dangerous, if you get caught in there you will be worked over and could get into serious trouble.

Directions

Drive south of Tanjung Setia and when you reach the Police Station on your left turn right on the sealed road. At the next T section turn left and continue to the hanging bridge. Leave your scooter and walk over the bridge follow the path to the beach.

 Do not leave valuables in your scooter !

Paddling out

Paddling out off the beach is through a very small channel between the south end of the reef and the beach break. Make sure you line up a bit north of the channel when paddling back in, so you don't get dragged into the beach break ... it can be heavy and dangerous.
