Surfing season : March to the end of December
The Banyak Islands archipelago lies a hundred miles off the west coast of Sumatra, the northernmost island of Indonesia. It's reached by boat after some 12 hours of sailing from the town of Sibolga, home port of The Dream.
Daily flights operate to Medan, Sumatra via Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, and there are daily morning flights from Medan (KNO) to Sibolga (FLZ). Given this schedule, all our trips begin on Monday and end on the Friday of the follwing week.
Indonesia, with regular and consistent swells, is the most popular surf destination in the world. And the Banyak Islands are indeed a surfer's paradise. While the neighbouring Mentawai Islands have become incredibly popular, attracted flocks of surfers each year, the Banyaks have their fair share of world-class waves and remain quite uncrowded. The Dream is one of only 3 boats currently operating in this heavenly and unspoiled area.
