Female Friendly Surf Camps

At Surf Camp Sumatra we can tailor make a girls only surf trip. 100% designed for active girls or women looking to either learn to surf or simply to progress, our handpicked female friendly surf holidays can include surf lessons, yoga classes and other exciting activities. The results below have been given a star rating, with the most suitable having the best rating. Its certainly safe for women to travel to all parts of Sumatra but certain regions like the Mentawai Islands are more ideal when it comes to "girls only surfing holidays" as there is a very relaxed vibe throughout the islands. Other areas have stricter religious beliefs such as Simeulue where females are advised to generally cover up in public and bikinis should only be worn within their respective surf camp.
