Surf & travel South Sumatra

Surf South Sumatra, is the most complete quide to travel destinations and surf breaks on the South West Coast of Sumatra. Focusing on the seaside towns of Tanjung Setia and Krui. Travelers, surfers and tourists will enjoy exploring this 150 kilometers stretch of coastline nestled at the base of the world's largest World Heritage National Park.

What is Krui like ?

Once off the beaten track locations Krui and Tanjung Setia are undergoing a radical transformation. Their Golden Years as uncrowded surf destinations may be over but for now they have retained their quaint charm.

If you're planning to explore this amazing coastal region of Pesisir Barat it's advised that you do it soon. Rapid development and crowds of surfers escaping the lost paradise of Bali are quickly introducing the usual problems associated with the neocolonialist nature of the surf tourist industry.

Looking for a full-on daytime shopping experience or a place to party ? Then this is not really the destination for you: no air-conditioned shopping malls, no Mc Donalds, Starbucks, no fast food joints, night clubs or gourmet coffee shops.

Don't expect to find the usual hard sell tourist trap either. Rather, what you can expect to find is a memorable experience on the edge of the Indian Ocean.
