Banyak Surf Resort is a complex of wooden bungalows built on stilts over the water in a beautiful bay. We have a bungalow divided in 2 rooms connected with a board walk to the main building where the restaurant is situated. The resort is in the quietest area in the bay where you can have peaceful nights and wake up with enough energy to tackle each new day of your trip in our paradise.

The rooms are simple but spacious and have 3 beds each, 1 bed of 160 x 200 centimeters and 2 bed of 120 x 200 centimeters so you can share with a friend. Each bed has a mosquito net and towels are provided. The rooms have private bathrooms with a toilet. The rooms also have a fan.

The electricity of the surf camp works with generators, for ecological reasons they cut the current 2 or 3 hours in the morning and 2 or 3 hours in the afternoon when generally they need it the least. They ask their customers to bring only environmentally friendly products, such as natural shampoos, soaps, toothpaste, sunscreen, etc. They do everything to preserve the unspoiled nature that surrounds them.

Program

You will enjoy daily boat trips to the surf spots in the bay. There are three different waves in the bay:

Gunturs

Gunturs is a right with three sections that has several barrels. It is a swell magnet working all the time. It is a barrels machine.

Lolok Point

This is an incredible freight train left that appears with a good overhead swell. There are several sections that wrap around the point of the island with a number of barrels.

Dindos

This one is perfect left for maneuvers.

Included excursions

Banyak Surf Resort organizes two boat trips a week to other surf spots outside the bay, depending on the swell and daily unlimited surfing inside the bay with their boat.

Location

This virgin island paradise is completely untouched with several waves in the bay and other waves in the surrounding islands which are accessible less than 1 hour by boat. This holiday will take place in a lagoon surrounded by uncrowded and maybe even yet to be discovered waves. The Banyak Islands are an archipelago off the west coast of Sumatra, north of Nias. The surf resort is located south of Tuangku Island in the Bay of Plenty. Heard of Lolok Point before? This world-class wave is in the front yard.
