Sumatra Surf Resort is one of the newest Surf Resort’s to open in West Lampung, situated 30 kilometers from Krui at Tanjung Setia. Sumatra Surf Resort faces the longest and best left-handed reef break in the region, Ujung Bocor on the point of Tanjung Setia in South Sumatra. It ranges in scope from heavy dredging barrels to long carveable down the line performance walls with rides in excess of 200 meters. Ujung Bocur is extremely consistent and handles large swells well.

In addition, the sheer length of the wave spreads out almost any crowd.The surf on Sumatra’s southern coast has something for everyone. From grommies to seasoned pros. From reef breaks to beachies Krui’s surf region is wide and varied, and Sumatra Surf Resort is within easy reach of them all.

The people of the region are good natured and very friendly. A smile and a wave goes a long way down here. The local people have strong values and belief in their culture. It’s important to respect their ways and culture and always act appropriately. Remember you are all guests here so what goes in your country probably isn’t the way here.

Banana Island

Banana Island is known for its beautiful beaches and amazing views back to the mainland. It’s about a three hour drive plus canoe ride to the island. Good spot to surf, fish, swim, and snorkel. You will have worth the trip if the wind is right. It’s a full day trip.

Ranau Lake

About two half hours’ drive from the resort is the volcanic Ranau Lake. It’s a very spectacular spot known for its natural beauty and soothing hot springs. A great way to soothe those aching muscles. Allow the best part of a day for this trip.

River canoe and jungle trekking

Sumatra is world famous for its diverse range of animal life including the Sumatran tiger and orangutan which roam free in the jungle. Bring your camera and be amazed at the wildlife and stunning waterfalls. Guided treks from the resort can be arranged. Elephant trekking is currently unavailable as the elephant is sick.

Krui markets

Situated in the town of Krui some 30 kilometers away is Krui Markets. This is a real market with the local people offering local produce and goods. Try your bargaining skills with the many vendors. A fun way to spend a few hours.
