Telo Islands

A Unique Surf Adventure in the Telo Islands

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Telo Islands, located off the west coast of Sumatra, between Nias in the North and the Mentawai Islands in the south. This region of Indonesia is gaining a reputation as one of the best surf destinations in the world, with consistent, empty waves and stunning tropical landscapes to explore.

The Telo Islands may be a lesser known Indonesian surf destination, but this remote paradise has everything you need for an epic surf adventure. With friendly locals, rich culture, delicious cuisine, amazing waves and a laid-back vibe, the Telo Islands is truly a remarkable spot for a dream holiday. Beyond surfing, there’s an incredible array of activities for non-surfers both in and out of the water. Whether you love snorkeling, fishing, or simply unwinding with a good book on the beach, there’s no shortage of things to keep you busy from dawn to dusk.

Escape your daily routine and let World Surfaris plan a one-of-a-kind Telo Islands surf trip for you, your family and friends. We have handpicked a range of Telos surf resorts and surf charters to cater for all abilities, from experienced to beginner surfers. Whether you choose to jump on board a surf charter and access Telos surf breaks by boat, or kick back in a rustic hut or beach bungalow at a tranquil surf retreat, it’s a fantastic opportunity to take advantage of everything these beautiful Islands have to offer.

World Surfaris represents three unique Telo Islands surf resorts in this beautiful archipelago. From the exclusive Telo101 Resort to the jungle-style Surfing Village, we offer a Telo Islands surf resort experience for every type of surfer and traveller.

The Telo Islands surf season runs from May through to October, with swells reaching up to 10 ft or more. The swell is most consistent during the peak season, however surfers can experience epic waves in the off season with fewer crowds.

This region of Sumatra provides a variety of waves to challenge the most experienced surfers, as well as conditions to suit beginners. Some of the most well-known Telo Island surf breaks include a range of left-handers and right-handers, including Pasti, Nagadens, Ibua, Kiri, Baga, Mibis and many more
