Though not a great distance from the mainland, the Mentawai Islands and its people were kept isolated until the 19th century by strong winds, unpredictable currents and razor-sharp reefs.
It’s thought that the archipelago separated from Sumatra some 500,000 years ago, resulting in unique flora and fauna that sees Mentawai ranked alongside Madagascar in terms of endemic primate population.
The largest island, Siberut, is home to the majority of the Mentawai population and is the most studied and protected island in the archipelago. The western half of the island is protected as the Siberut National Park.
Pulau Sipora is home to Tua Pejat, the seat of regional government and a surfer drop-off point. The archipelago’s airport is located at Rokot. With only 10% original rainforest remaining, it’s also the most developed of the Mentawai Islands.
Further south are the Pulau Pagai islands – Utara (North) and Selatan (South) – which rarely see independent travelers
The Telo’s are made up of two main Islands that are surrounded by about 99 smaller islands, situated between Nias and The Mentawai’s, the area is very remote, untouched and sparsely populated, geographically the islands are closer to the mentawai’s, however the people, culture, local language originated from Nias. An extremely beautiful area, think tropical paradise.
The Banyak Islands are located in the Islands of North Sumatra about 50km from mainland Aceh Sumatra, and are also home to a couple of great waves such as Treasure island/Machine gun rights/Whistle bird and the Bay of plenty.
