M.I.A Surfcamp is located in front of 5 breaks here in the Mentawai Islands (the only camp in the whole region that can honestly claim this). We have taken every precision to make sure the lay out offers all 5 breaks from the view of each Bungalow, and as close to the Oceans Edge as we could get.
From our boats mooring, you get to stroll through the the jungle seeing some beautiful scenery and meeting some of the traditional Mentawai Island people and see the way they live their lifes.
Our main area for all guests to hang is the Main House which has a library with a range of books, surfing magazines, board games, and music. We are in the process on building a games area which will contain a pool table, ping-pong and much more.
There is also a large area to interact with the locals and play a game of soccer or footy.
The Mentawai Islands is a large archipelago off the west coast of Sumatra, its an isolated paradise where the jungle meets an ocean full of pristine coral reefs and unmatched waves.
Very few surfers return from here disappointed with wave quality, quantity & consistency, its known across the globe as having “the best waves in the world” a quote that is rarely disputed. Being so close to the equator the winds here are extremely light and variable unlike other parts of Indonesia which are strongly affected by seasonal trade winds. Which in turn gives us so many more surfing options everyday.
M.I.A Surfcamp is located at the northern end of the Mentawais which is also the most wave rich in the entire area. We are smack bang in the middle of over 10 islands each with pristine beaches and coral encrusted lava rock reefs with an amazing number of surfing set-ups, 5 "out the front" and over 25 within a half hour of camp accessible on one of our new high speed locally built long boats. Our speed boat has 2x40 hp engines, and doesn't take long to get to any break.
Ocean View Rooms...
Our beautiful traditional locally built bungalows are a throws stones away from five epic breaks here in the Mentawai Islands, one being the most consistent wave here in the Islands. As soon as you open your eyes, you can see breaks from your bed and choose which one you want to surf as the sun is rising.
Our bungalows are spacious with en-suited bathrooms, king size comfortable beds with mosquito nets and lockable wardrobes.
Each bungalow also has a spacious balcony for you to chill out, read a book, watch the waves in between surfs. We also have a beautiful couples room (on request).
