Simeule lies off the coast far north coast of Sumatra and provides fantastic waves and unspoiled natural beauty to a select band of returning visitors. The island’s most consistent swells hit between April and October, when the fun waves such as The Peak, Dylan’s Right, or the more serious slabs of Thailands and Teabags all light up. Access is also easy courtesy of daily domestic flights from the Sumatran city of Medan

Over a dozen recognized quality breaks varying from barreling reef to mellow, easy-to-ride beachies.
Uncrowded waves suitable for all surfing levels
Yoga & health retreats, jungles activities
Easy to get to courtesy of daily domestic flights that depart after most International arrival flights
The Peak is a fun perfect left and right which has both hollow barrel sections and nice walls. An easy paddle out from the beach and a flat reef makes it fun for all.
This wave will have you frothing pretty quickly. The access to this mesmerizing right hander is pretty easy but requires a boat.
Dylan’s Right is a hollow fast prefect right barrel which breaks over shallow reef on the inside of a large south west facing bay. Breaks best in larger swells, but produces consistent fun, fast waves.
