ITINERARY
 
Day 1: Transfer from Medan Airport to hotel.  1 night including breakfast.

Day 2: Transfer to airport for flight to Simeulue.  Transfer to Baneng Retreat, 40 min from the airport.
 
There are various surf breaks on the southern tip of Simeulue. The main wave is 'Dylans', a fast, fun, right hander that rarely gets bigger than head high. It's about 20 minutes walk. 
 
The Peak is about 30 minutes north.  On the south coast, 1/2 hr driveaway, is a left point and left-right peak that gets more swell than Dylans, so there is always a wave, and you will be the only ones surfing. 
 
On the other side of the bay is a big, rolling left-hander, a favourite for longboarders.  Tepak Island, about 15 minutes away by boat, is a hollow right-hander that can get fairly heavy.  There is also a selection of beach and reef-breaks that we access by car.
 
For adventure, the drive north up the coast to is a must.  For those who like doing their own thing, motorbikes with board racks can be hired from the camp.
 
While not surfing, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, explore, fish, snorkel and relax.  A speedboat (seats 8) is available for transfers to nearby breaks accessible only by water.
 
Day 11: Transfer to Simeulue airport for flight to Medan.

International/onward flights ex Medan should be booked for departures after 12.00 midday.  Post tour accommodation in Medan can be arranged if required (additional expense).
