Car hire with driver is usually around $40 / day. But of course pricing can vary from driver to driver.
Please note fuel will be additional but is relatively cheap in the region.
laid back corner of Indonesia hasnt been tarnished by development - unlike
other parts of the country. You won’t find any western influence here (away
from the cluster of surf camps), instead just the raw daily life of the local
community. This is how Indonesia should be experienced.
not to say there aren’t other points of interest away from the surf. We can
easily arrange a number of short excursions to give you something extra than
just a surfing experience, such as:
the local village of Krui
(banana island) – also has great surf!
to Lake Ranau the second largest lake on Sumatra
treks & elephant rides
& spear fishing
down from the camp are some sheltered reefs within walking distance for you to
explore. We have some gear but best you bring your own.
certainly possible to head out trolling or jigging in the local area. Typically
we catch Spanish Mackerel, Tuna & Marlin when in season. GT’s & Snapper
can be jigged from the deeper reefs. Local style boats are available for hire
for early morning or afternoon sessions. We do have some equipment however it’s
best to bring your own. If packing fishing gear include your rod & reel,
trolling lures, jigs, poppers, soft plastics etc.
