Surf Moon Beach Resort
With more than a dozen epic surf breaks around Moon Beach Resort, surfing on Simeulue Island has never looked so good. Primely positioned central to breaks like Dylan’s, Tea Bags and the Peak, you’ll find the waves you’re looking for from Moon Beach Resort, all within a short walk, scooter ride, car trip or via boat.
Simeulue Island is located in the Doldrums, which means more often that not there’s no wind, resulting in clean, glassy conditions the majority of the time. Unlike other regions in Indonesia, this area doesn’t rely on southern swells, instead utilising the swells from the north west around India and the Maldives. Swells in this region have longer periods, longer lines and barrels.
There’s more to do than just surfing on this beautiful Indonesian island, all within an hour of Moon Beach Resort. Surfers and non-surfers can enjoy a variety of activities on Simeulue Island, such as world class reefs for snorkelling, fishing and diving.
