MENTAWAI ISLANDS

The Mentawai islands are a chain of islands in Indonesia off the western coast of Sumatra, recognized as having some of the most perfect surfing breaks in the world. However, because most waves break over very sharp and shallow coral reefs, only experienced surfers should attempt them.


Islands include Siberut, Sipura, North Pagai, and South Pagai. Pagai is a main settlement. There are many surf camps and a few surf resorts on the Mentawai Islands, which are operated by local residents.
