Mentawai Islands, Indonesia
The Mentawai Islands are made up of 70 wave-rich chains off the western coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. If you want to be hit by a barrage of beautiful waves, the four picks of the southern and northern points of Pagi, Siparo, and Siberut are your best choices.
One of the most consistent surf destinations in the world, you can get the most of your surfing experience by visiting the biggest swells that occur during the months of June to September.
Accessible only by ferries or charters, the top Mentawai waves include Bankvaults, Lance’s Left and Lance’s Right, Macaronis, and for beginners, the Gilligan’s.
