ITINERARY
 
Day 1: Arrive 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.  End of inclusions
