South Sumatra

The South Sumatra coast has 10 quality waves in a beautiful area “like Bali 30 years ago”.   

Ujung Bocor near Krui is known as “Sumatra’s longest left”. Fun for intermediate to advanced surfers. Most surfers stay at Ombak Indah right on the point through www.freelinesurf.com.au or Damai Bungalows www.damaibungalows.com 

Way Jambu “the Sumatran Pipe” is only 10 minutes drive away. Also closeby are fun beach breaks for learners. Quality right-left set-ups within 60 minutes are KruiJennys and Jimmys, all long hollow waves for experts. Banana Island is a one hour boat trip from Krui that’s worth trying.

Our #1 Recommendation for South Sumatra

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

Money

Indonesia’s monetary unit is the RUPIAH (Roo-pee-ah) symbolised as “Rp”. Like Dollars, rupiah are  written “Rp 1,000” but said “1,000 Rupiah”. Some tourists refer to “Rupes” when speaking English, but when speaking Indonesian you should only say “Rupiah”. Recently one Australian Dollar was worth just over Rp 10,000. The rate fluctuates daily so only change enough for a few days.
