Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Telo Islands, located off the west coast of Sumatra, between Nias in the North and the Mentawai Islands in the south. This region of Indonesia is gaining a reputation as one of the best surf destinations in the world, with consistent, empty waves and stunning tropical landscapes to explore.
