Pitstops, Nyang Nyang Island

North Mentawai Islands, Sumatra, Indonesia

Mentawai Surf Retreat is nestled on 20 acres of beach front land on Nyang Nyang Island in the Northern Mentawai region. This region is known as the “Playgrounds” area, and the name says it all. The Mentawai Islands are Mother Nature’s gift to the surfing world.

The retreat has several world class waves within walking distance and over twenty epic breaks just a short boat ride away. We have access to a large variety of waves for all surfing levels; from mellow, peeling reef breaks to some of the heaviest barrels on the planet.

With a beach front, Northwest facing Restaurant and Bar nestled in the shade, private hillside bungalows set amongst coconut palms and tropical gardens, the outlook over Siberut Island creates breathtaking sunsets that make this the best setting in the Mentawais
