“Traditional beach resort on the stunning, hidden island of Nyang-Nyang. The camp can sleep up to 10 people and provides a traditional feel with modern facilities. Accompanied by an Indonesian family atmosphere, Camp Siberut offers a unique and memorable stay. The Mentawai Islands have plenty of amazing surf and breaks such as E'bay, Beng-Beng, Nipussi and Pitstop are all within walking distance from camp. With white sandy beaches, palm trees and coral reefs.
