Surfing Indonesia

The huge Indonesian archipelago has hundreds of surf breaks, from the world famous Mentawais to little-known places such as in the eastern islands. The prime season may be April to October but excellent waves can be had all year; Indonesia is virtually never flat.

Atoll Travel offers two resort based options for an Indonesian surfing holiday.

In the east is Nemberala Beach Resort on the island of Roti off West Timor; and in the north-west is Telos 101 in the Telos islands off Sumatra just south of Nias.

Both resorts offer excellent facilities, food and importantly boat service to access all the regional surf breaks.

Alternatively for a Mentawais boat charter the renowned Barrenjoey operated by John McGroder is one of the most experienced Mentawais surf charter operations there is. From 25 years of skippering surf charters in the Mentawais there’s not a nook or cranny that John doesn’t know.
