Whats in the Krui & Tanjung Setia area.

Krui and Tanjung Setia are located in the West Coast Regency of Sumatra. It is a large agricultural area that stretches 150km along the South West Sumatran coast from Rata Agung in the north to Way Haru in the south. Tourism is not a primary industry yet and, as such, only small pockets have been developed at Tanjung Setia beach, Mandiri beach and Krui. Once catering almost exclusivly to the international surfing market these areas are now dominated by domestic tourism.


Krui is the largest town in the area and the capital of Pesisir Barat regency. It is a port town with many small stores, a large central market and an Immigration Office. There are a number of classic tropical beaches close by including Labuhan Jukung which is home to the well known surf break Krui Left.

In this part of the world there are no defined tourist maps to follow, no schedules to keep or postcards to buy and send home. The day often closes with a strange feeling that an uncharted exploration has occurred and that somewhere along the way you've somehow lost track of the date.
