M.I.A Surfcamp is located in front of 5 breaks here in the Mentawai Islands (the only camp in the whole region that can honestly claim this). We have taken every precision to make sure the lay out offers all 5 breaks from the view of each Bungalow, and as close to the Oceans Edge as we could get.
The BENG BENGS SURF CAMP is situated on the west side of the Nyang Nyang Island. A sunny tropical paradise, immersed in the Indian Ocean, and it’s here that after a long journey you can rest your body and your mind relaxing on a sun bed on the beach, looking at the deep blue ocean that surrounds you.
In season between April and October when swell swinging up from the Roaring 40s and Howling 50s march south-west across the Indian Ocean and the light trade winds blow from the south-east. Even during the off season when the trade winds switch to west and north-west there are still classic waves to be had and the swells are still regular. Sea temperatures remain steady at around 28Â°C or 82Â°F. Nias was the first wave to be discovered in 1975 by Australian surfers and undoubtedly remains the most famous.
From luxury yachts to fishing boats, boat trips often include great food, private cabins or shared rooms and are a good, fast way to get to the best hard to reach spots.
