No matter if you come here for surfing, trekking, snorkling, you’ll find a perl with the spirit of a Bali trip like in the 1980s. At our surfcamp you will find what your Surfer’s Soul is on the search for.

No streets, no cars. Just palm trees, white sand, and worldclass waves.

Playgrounds Wavepark

This area is ┬ácalled “Playgrounds” or “Wavepark” for a good reason as it’s surrounded by some of the best surf point breaks in the world, such as:

  • E-Bay
  • Pitstops
  • Beng Bengs
  • Nipussi
  • Bankvaults

These spots you can reach right on foot by a 10min hike along the beautiful white sandy beaches or on a track through the forrest.

Other spots are just a 10-15min boat ride from the camp, including Burger World, Kandui, A Frames, Rifles, 4Bobs and a lot more. Boats can be rented on a daily basis at the resort, just talk to our crew one day ahead.


Mentawai Fast Ferry

The new Mentawai Fast Ferry is now operating. It takes only 3-4 hours travel time from Padang to Siberut and back. You can go by Fast Ferry every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from Padang to the islands and back.
