BeOcean Krui is a beachfront surf camp in South Sumatra with insane waves, stunning views, and incredible value.
Sometimes life calls for an epic surf trip in a tropical paradise (hopefully often). Lucky for surfers, there are plenty of great surf resorts on the planet, but many come with a hefty price tag attached.
Now that’s all well and good if you’ve got the dough, but if you don’t and you’re not in the mood for a feral trip, the surf trip of your daydreams can seem out of reach.
Introducing your surf trip savior, BeOcean Krui.
BeOcean Krui is an awesome all-inclusive surf camp in Indonesia with top-notch accommodation and easy access to pumping waves at a really affordable price point. At $65 USD per person per night with all meals included, you’re practically saving money on this surf trip!
Located in remote southwestern Sumatra near the town of Krui, the area offers up a huge range of quality waves without the crowds that come with the busier parts of Indo.
You know when the waves are so ridiculously phenomenal that your arms automatically rise to the sky in a special moment of awe and gratitude? That happens a lot here. And forget having to take a long boat ride or mission to surf breaks.
Directly in front of the property, there’s a hollow left-hand reef break, and a 2-minute beach walk takes you to a punchy but easy right-hander, both considered some of the most fun waves in the area.
There are more waves within easy walking distance along the beach, others are a short scooter ride away, and if you want to explore outside the immediate area there are a slew of impressive breaks within an hour in both directions along the coast.
The owners are super knowledgeable on the surf and conditions and take great care to help make sure you’re on the best waves at any given time.
When you’re not surfing your brains out, you can take out the camp’s stand up paddle boards, go snorkeling, hiking, or use the onsite spearfishing gear to take advantage of the stellar fishing.
The surf camp itself is a charming property right on the beach surrounded by jungle with stunning views of the reeling left out front and mountainous coastline in the distance. The four bungalows are really nicely done, with quality mosquito nets, beautiful wooden floors, vaulted wood ceilings and large ensuite bathrooms.
Right at the edge of the beach, there’s a shaded wooden deck perfect for checking out the surf with your breakfast, chilling in a hammock, or sipping a beer at sunset. The owners Max and Alicia are wonderful hosts and have cultivated a relaxed and friendly vibe that makes you feel right at home.
In the evening guests gather around a communal dining table for the legendary food and recap the day’s adventures before resting up for another day in paradise. With rave reviews, top-notch food, serious waves, and a fantastic setup, BeOcean is the perfect place for a special surf trip at an incredible price.
