Surfing in paradise - 10 nights in North Sumatra

24th February 2013 Print

The Perfect Wave has reduced all trips to the exclusive resort of Aura Surf in North Sumatra by 15% - saving over £200 pp on a 10 night holiday – for the entire month of March.

Aura Surf is located on a large, unexplored island and is nestled among 15,000sq metres of beachfront parkland with a world-class peak break right opposite and surrounded by mountainous jungle.

The resort is the perfect place to take on un-crowded waves with untouched beaches and a huge range of surf spots, from easy beach breaks to 15-foot grinding barrels.

There are also a multitude of world class waves in the area with over 100kms of coastline to explore. The peak by the resort rarely drops below 3 to 4 feet and is usually 5 to 6 feet – perfect for beginners and those wanting to sharpen their technique.

The Aura Surf resort is situated on the beach close to a quiet village and when not hitting the surf there is much to enjoy with the island’s mountains, waterfalls, rain-forest, rivers and abundant wildlife. Popular activities include 4WD drives on marked tracks, fishing and snorkelling.

The island is located off Northern Sumatra, approximately 80 miles off the coast. There are two daily flights and the resort provides airport transfers.

Although built in a traditional style to fit in with its surroundings, the resort is equipped with many modern extras including the bar, dining areas, TV, DVD and several outdoor chill-out areas. The bungalows are elevated above a sweeping 3km wide white sandy beach offering great views.

Accommodation is in three traditional bungalows and a main building, made of local hardwood and woven bamboo with thatched palm roofing. It has a capacity to accommodate 14 surfers at a time.

All three bungalows are very spacious with external decking; two sleep two people on each side, with the larger bungalow sleeping three on each side. The rooms can be separated for privacy or connected, making them ideal for bigger groups and families.

A 10-night holiday departing any day during March now costs from £1147 pp (two sharing) – saving over £200 pp off the regular price.

This includes local airport transfers, 10-nights’ full-board, surf guide and three boat trips. International and domestic flights are not included but are available on request.
