The Banyak Islands are a group of sparsely inhabited islands located between Simeulue and Nias off the western coast of Sumatra in Aceh Province and consist of 99 small land masses. Just north of Nias, the islands of Bangkaru and Tuangku hold a number of world-class waves. Located right at the equator, the November-March provides quality waves when lower latitudes are blown out by trade winds.
