North Sumatra & Simeulue

World-Class Waves and Exquisite Natural Beauty

The magical North Sumatra region boasts an incredible range of surf destinations, from the legendary waves of Nias to the lesser-known Hinakos, Banyaks and Simeulue.

As well as world-class surf breaks, North Sumatra has exceptional natural beauty, characterised by stunning turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and lush jungle landscapes. It’s a dream destination for surfers and non-surfers alike.

At World Surfaris, we’re passionate about helping you find the perfect North Sumatran surf adventure. We offer an incredible range of handpicked surf charters and surf resorts that provide an unforgettable experience in and out of the water.

The remoteness of North Sumatra’s surf spots can make getting there challenging. Luckily, the World Surfaris team of expert travel agents can help you navigate the ins and outs of travel in North Sumatra, and help you plan your journey, book flights, and arrange transportation.
