Surf Togat Nusa Retreat

Surfing at Togat Nusa Retreat offers access to several renowned surf spots around Pitojat Island, all located within a short boat ride away. Key nearby surf breaks include Icelands, a big wave spot, and Scarecrows, a long lefthander directly out the front. Other spots include Suicides, a right-hander over a shallow reef, and Telescopes, known for long rides and reliable conditions. The area is surfable year-round. 

To access the surf, Togat Nusa Retreat offers a fleet of boats designed for both comfort and efficiency. A 9m aluminum speedboat is used for day trips and can accommodate up to 8 guests. This boat features a GPS, radio, essential safety equipment, a large roof for shade and padded seats with backrests. For local adventures, a traditional dugout canoe boat is available for guests, powered by two 40 horsepower Yamaha engines. Both boats are equipped with coolers for drinks and snacks, ensuring a refreshing experience while out in the surf. 

 

Scarecrows

A bowling left hander right in your front yard at Togat Nusa Retreat. Scarecrows picks up a lot of swell, and on bigger, heavier days requires a bit of paddling and a bigger board. This wave can offer a good barrel on the inside section after some big carves on the outside.

Icelands

Another swell magnet, this time a peak, that picks up any available swell. When Telescopes is big and pumping, Iceland can be 2-3 times bigger. A true big wave spot, this wave has been surfed at 20ft and is a great place for an adrenaline rush on your step up.

Suicides

A heavy and unpredictable left with gnarly barrels over a very shallow, live coral reef. When it links up, it’s a remarkable wave, suitable for advanced surfers only and definitely at high tide.

Telescopes

Ridiculously perfect left, easily accessible from Awera Surf Resort, Togat Nusa Retreat and Villa Mentawai. A user-friendly wave with multiple good sections for barrels or turns. Telescopes likes a SW swell with SE winds.

Seven Palms

Shifty lefts off random peaks. This spot, rarely crowded, picks up plenty of swell but can be hard to surf.

Arikis

A relatively under-the-radar right hander that’s fast and zippy breaking over shallow reef. Arikis can offer good barrel sections and is best at higher tide.

Omak Tidur

A long, slabbing right out the front of Awera Surf Resort with intense barrel sections on good days. This wave can be super challenging, and often seems surfable when it’s not. Always wait for the green light from your surf guide before attempting this one!

Hookers

A fickle wrap-around left that can be challenging. This wave needs a big swell to come to life.

Playgrounds Area & Katiet Bay

Available at an additional charge, guests can also explore the Playgrounds area or Katiet Bay area for a full day during their stay at Togat Nusa Retreat. Here, guests will have the opportunity to surf famed breaks such as Lances Right, Lances Left, Bintangs, Beng-Beng, Kandui Left, Rifles and Hideaways.

Non-Surf Activities

At Togat Nusa Retreat, guests can enjoy a variety of non-surfing activities, making it a versatile destination for surfers, couples or families. The retreat offers yoga classes in an idyllic yoga shala with ocean views, focusing on improving balance, strength, and flexibility, beneficial not just for surfing but for general health as well. 

For those interested in exploring the underwater world, snorkeling around the nearby reefs or the retreat’s coral garden provides an opportunity to observe vibrant marine life in crystal clear waters. Additionally, fishing and beach hopping are popular activities for guests looking to enjoy their natural surroundings at a leisurely pace.  

Guests can also book photo and video packages to capture their adventures, which include professional shots of surfing sessions and other memorable moments during their stay.
