Mentawai islands are relatively easy to access, but it needs some time to get there. First of all you need to come to Padang, a vivid small city with beautiful environment in West Sumatra. Flights to Padang can be booked via travelindo.com and payed via paypal (in case your credit card isn’t working on LionAir or on Garuda Indonesia )
Still you can check for flights on these websites. We suggest to get tickets as early as possible. Flights are usually quite affordable but can be sometimes fully booked, especially during the Idul Fitri holidays.
Flights go from Jakarta, Denpasar/Bali, Lombok, Singapore and lots of other cities to Padang every day. With a Full Package booking, Airport Pickup is included – the Gordo Mentawai crew will be the airport in Padang when you arrive and bring you to the ferry in the evening.
The ferry leaves Padang every Wednesday and Friday around 7pm and arrives in the morning (around 5am) in Siberut.
From there you can buy some snacks and supplies and enjoy a 2h boat ride through the mangroves forrest along a riverbed to the beautiful half-moon island with our resort.
The way back is equally easy and enjoyable. A speedboat will bring you back to Siberut harbor on a Thursday or on a Saturday and the ferry will leave around 7pm and will arrive back in Padang early next morning around 5am. A local contact in Padang will pick you up and bring you to the airport or into a hotel..
