Surf & Other Activities

Surfing


There are literally uncrowded waves all over the south and western side of the island and some are yet to be discovered or named. There are at least 10 quality waves within 5 to 60 minutes of the resort. The types of these waves varies - from barrelling reef break to more mellow, easy to ride beach breaks. “The Peak” is just about 5 minutes by motor bike or car from the resort. “Dylan’s Right” is about 15 minutes away and “Teupah“ is about 30 minutes away by boat. There are 2 other perfect righthanders, 2 barrelling left reef breaks and various beach breaks located nearby.


The Peak

The Peak is a fun perfect left and right which has both hollow barrel sections and nice walls. It picks up any swell and is super consistent. It’s a fun wave which anyone can surf, both beginners and more experienced surfers. An easy paddle out from the beach and the reef is flat. Fun for all!


Dylan’s Right

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 fun fast waves very consistently. It is an easy wave with an easy take off. It breaks cleanly even in small conditions. Suitable for intermediate and experienced surfers.


Teupah

Teupah is an Island directly in front of the resort. It is a heavy right-hand hollow wave. Deep water swells break over a shallow reef creating a serious wave which has real power and length of ride. It picks up more swell easily and starts breaking from about 4 foot.  Also super consistent and is better suited to intermediate and experienced surfers.



Other Activities

 

Fishing

Fishing around the island can land some good catches. The best deep sea fishing is to be found on the drop off at the edge of the reef near Babi Island - day and overnight trips can be arranged. There is also some good trawling around the close islands for mackerel, giant travelly and swordfish with the occasional tuna as well.


Snorkeling

There are numerous excellent snorkeling locations around nearby islands; Mincau has excellent deep water coral reef for the serious diver as well shallow snorkeling off the beach. Seflak Island is a small atoll reef just in front of the Resort. It is completely surrounded by reef and also offers good snorkeling for the inexperienced from a small boat.

Village tour

Take a trip to the local village markets and see how the locals live and interact.


Trekking

There are waterfalls, freshwater lakes, pristine tropical jungles and endless deserted beaches to be explored.


Deserted island day trip

Go exploring take a boat trip to the nearby deserted island of Mincau. You have your own tropical paradise all to yourself, you can swim, fish or snorkel off the beach or trek around the Islands tropical rain forest and coconut plantation and enjoy a beach barbecue prepared by resort staff.


Turtle watching

When the season is right, green turtles come to lay their eggs at night on the full moon in the sandy beach directly in front of the resort. You could be lucky and witness this rare event.
