Out the front of the homestay is a beachbreak which can produce fun empty peaks and also the barreling right hand reef of Alus Alus.
Wongtong is a semi secret lefthander about 15 minutes away. It is a swell magnet.
Dylan’s is perfectly shaped righthand reef break, also about 15 minutes away. The short ride is sweet and makes you hungry for more.
The peak is 45 minutes away and produces great punchy lefts and rights.
Thailand is a nearshore island with a left hand reef break. The waves are fun and would also suit less experienced surfers.
Teabags is a serious barreling right hand reef break, also breaking on a nearshore island. Boats to get to these (and other) islands can be organised through Frazha homestay.
There are also many other spots to explore and surf on Simeulue.
