Surf Macaronis Surf Resort

Surfers of all levels will find waves that cater to their skill set, all within a stone’s throw from Macaronis Surf Resort. The crown jewel, Macaronis, is a flawless, consistent left-hander that delivers regardless of the tide, swell, or wind condition, making it a favourite for many. For beginners or families with children, a fun right-hand beach break is conveniently located out the front, and the surrounding area is dotted with several other reef breaks ranging in intensity.  

Peak season sees a variety of swells, with Macaronis becoming progressively more challenging as the swell increases. On larger swells, surfers tend to disperse based on their skill level and crowd regulations in the area, allowing experienced surfers to enjoy Macaronis to themselves or venture further to Greenbush to get their barrel fix.  

In the off-season, with fewer charters in operation, guests can enjoy consistent, mellow, and far less crowded conditions locally and further south.  

Upon request, Lances Right (HTs) and Lances Left are accessible within 60-minutes by speedboat ride, weather permitting.  

For surfers packing light, a quiver of Firewire Surfboards are available for hire, including fins and leashes. Guests can easily find a board that suits their style, with new boards arriving 2-3 times annually. 

 

Macaronis

A picture-perfect left with multiple barrel sections, just a 5-minute speedboat ride across the bay from Macaronis Surf Resort. Macaronis is widely considered the world’s most fun left – it’s just barrel, turn, barrel, turn over and over again! Macaronis is a super consistent wave that breaks on any swell but is best on a SW swell with E/SE winds.

Mini Maccas

A much smaller and shallower version of Macaronis, worth considering on a big swell at high tide, and is usually about a quarter of the size of Macaronis.

Maccas Right

A shifty right across the bay from Macaronis, that occasionally links up into a couple of sections. This is a popular wave for those chasing a mellow, less crowded session.

Fishfingers

The ultimate wave for groms or beginners! This is a perfect sand bottom right, just a 5-minute paddle down from Macaronis Surf Resort.

Bat Caves

A novelty right hander breaking off a beautiful tropical island. This wave can be fun on a longboard or a fish.

Greenbush

A incredibly perfect barrelling left, 45 minutes by speedboat from Macaronis Surf Resort. This is a heavy wave, over shallow reef. Greenbush needs a combination of high tide, S swell and N wind. Expect a steep drop into an intense barrel that may or may not let you out. This wave is suited to experienced surfers only.

Pagai South Area

Roxies

A playful rippable right that peels into a picturesque bay. Expect almond shaped barrels and beautiful carveable walls. This wave is a 60-minute speedboat tide from Macaronis Surf Resort.

Rags Left

A shallow, hollow barrel. Fickle, but when it’s on, it’s on.

Rags Right

A super shallow right-hand barrel that can be one of the best in the Mentawai Islands, best suited to advanced surfers only. There’s potential to score utter perfection boasting multiple barrel sections.

Thunders

A swell magnet that picks up almost any available swell and handles S winds. This wave can get popular with charter boats if it’s the only spot that’s working, but the shifting peaks handle a crowd well. Expect an easy take off into a predictable barrel on the inside section. Around the corner is gnarly secret spot if you’re feeling up for it, ask your surf guide!

The Hole

A flawless left-hand barrel. Short, intense, but truly one of the best waves in the Mentawai Islands when it’s on. The wave can be fickle, and needs a S swell, E wind and a confident skipper to navigate the tender.

Lighthouse

A big open-ocean point-break-style right with some unpredictable sections but a good ride on its day.

Muts

A long, sometimes perfect left. Good barrel sections and space for some powerful turns.

 

Non-Surf Activities

The tropical paradise that surrounds Macaronis Surf Resort offers so much more than incredible surfing. The resort is fully equipped with a variety of recreational gear, including kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, fishing equipment, and snorkeling sets.

Two picturesque beaches are easily accessible from Macaronis Surf Resort. One is a short walk away dotted with large, beautiful shells nestled among the coral, and the other is reachable by paddleboard, kayak or a leisurely swim.
