Driftwood Mentawai is located on Nyang Nyang island (aka Pulau Masokut) in the heart of the Playgrounds surf zone.

E-bay is the closest of the waves and is just steps away from the camp (about a 1 minute walk!). Its considered one of the best left hander's in Indonesia. Pitstops (a very fun right hander) is only a 5 minute walk around the next bay. A little further away is Nipussi (right), Beng bengs (left) and Bank Vaults (right) that are all reachable within 5-10 mins by boat. They're also walkable (30-50 mins each way) for those wanting ultimate flexibility. And whats more is that guests have access to all the regions 20 or so waves thanks to Driftwood's 2 speedboats that are included in each package.

Guests can choose to travel to the camp from Padang 3 days a week with trips starting & ending in Padang every Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday.
