Nias

Nias island is famous for the idyllic waves breaking off palm-fringed Lagundri Bay. The 2005 earthquake lifted the reef, making the wave even better - hollower and longer! The famous seven second tubes are now nine seconds! More new breaks have been improved nearby.

World Surfaris can book you and your family into the newly opened KABU NOHI Resort, right in front of the fun end section of this idyllic point break wave.  The resort is new, but decorated with antique collector's items

"I would like to thank you for your publication - it was the first tool I used when I first started exploring Indo back in 1994. I do not think our surf charter business would even exist without helpful insight from your book. Your book is the most important resource for traveling Indonesia there is. So - thanks again!"

It's definitely worth the $5 a day for TRAVEL INSURANCE to avoid having to pay $50,000 for an Emergency Flight if you get badly injured on the sharp coral reefs or crazy roads.

Top Travel Tips

Respect the Locals

The Indonesian local surfers will be your new best friends. If you treat them with respect you will enjoy your trip so much more. A smile is worth a thousand words in any language. 

If you smile, talk quietly and give them the respect they deserve, you will develop true friendships, get cheaper bargains as a bonus, but more importantly you will gain a genuine insight into their uniquely spiritual lives and centuries old cultures. Indonesia is alive with religions like Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity and ancient Animistic beliefs. Your spirit will come alive in Indonesia.
