This idyllic tropical oasis has some of the most perfect waves in Indonesia, one being the awesome right-hander named Treasure Island (TI’s) boasting long down the line walls with numerous barrel sections. This reef break when pumping is one of the jewels in the crown of the entire North Sumatran surfing region.
Definitely the easiest way to access the Banyak Islands is to take a surf charter. Surfbanyak guests are flown to Nias then transferred by car 2.5 hours north to the port of Lahewa to board our charter boat the Seriti, from here it is a 4-5 hours cruise to the Banyak Islands.
There are around 90 islands in the Banyak island group, 50 paradise-like Islands with jungle, palms and white sandy beaches, many uninhabited. Quite a number of islands are not exposed to the prevailing swell and most don’t have reef structure that allows for rideable waves, the ones that do have some incredible world class waves winding along the surrounding reefs. The greatest frequency of the breaks are located around the islands of Tuangku and Bangkaru Islands.
