Where are you located? 

Mentawai Surf Retreat is located on 20 acres of beachfront land on Nyang Nyang Island, in Northern Mentawai. This region is known as ‘Playgrounds’, and the name says it all. The Mentawai Islands are Mother Nature’s gift to the surfing world.

A surf trip at Mentawai Surf Retreat is not just about scoring some of the best waves of your life; it’s about rejuvenating your mind-body wellness. During your 10 days with us, we’ll take care of your every need. It’s all about relaxing, fun surf trips and amazing sunsets.

Do the waves suit all surf abilities? 

Yes, there are an abundance of world class waves directly out front, suitable for all levels. Plus at your disposal are two speedboats and experienced surf guides, ready to get you to any of the 25 waves in the region. We’ll take you to the breaks that best suit your ability, whenever you want. 

Where do guests stay?
