Beng Beng Mentawai

Indonesia: Mentawai Islands

Relaxed and intimate surf camp in the Mentawais – world class waves right on your doorstep, with twice-daily boat transport to many more.

"Mentawai Islands are renowned for surfing waves"

The Mentawais Islands are world-renowned for the sheer quantity of world class waves hidden within the archipelago. When a solid S/SW swell rolls across the kaleidoscopic coral reefs, there aren’t many surfers who would want to be anywhere else: the waves are an exercise in perfection – spitting barrels run into long smackable walls, the turquois water and white spray of the sea set against the intense green background of the rainforest.

"The camp is just 100m from the legendary left break Ebay"

Beng Bengs Surf Camp is located on Nyang Nyang Island, 135km southwest of the Sumatran mainland in the southern Siberut region of the Mentawais, often referred to as the ‘Playground.’ This wave-rich region really is a surf playground – the camp is just 100m from the legendary left Ebay and a two minute boat ride from another fabled left, Beng Beng. A host of other waves are also in the vicinity, including Pitstops, Rifles, and Kanduis; twice daily boat trips shuttle you to whichever wave the experienced surf guides think is working best at the time.

Waves are available for all levels of surfer from beginner to pro, while non-surfers can enjoy relaxing on beautiful beaches, snorkeling, fishing, hiking on the rainforest trails and generally just chilling out in paradise.

"The packages include healthy and varied meals"

Catering for a maximum of ten people, the camp is set in a traditional Mentawaian house built by local craftsmen. Of the four bedrooms, two have double beds while two are equipped with bunk beds; it is possible to accommodate singles, couples and groups. All packages include three healthy and varied meals a day, often incorporating fresh local, in addition to use of snorkeling and fishing equipment. Additional options include transfers from Padang airport to Beng Bengs Camp – either by speedboat or public ferry – plus boat transport to the best waves each day and internet access. Simply give LUEX a call to discuss which option suits you best!
