Tanjung A'an is a right pointbreak with live coral reef under your feet. Can be surfed at all tides, all year round, it is VERY SHALLOW at middle to low tide. Tubes anytime.
You will probably park the car in the middle of a ghost holiday resort (old property of Suharto's kids): maybe you will not see no one but if you do, give money to the olders and give pens (PENS !) to the kids, to go to school.
After your session, chances are the locals will have noticed you and come around to see who you are. Take the fresh coconut they will give you, it's absolutely wonderful.
Surf it all year round : South East swell in winter (rain season), South West swell in summer. A little more windy in summer but all you have to do is come at the MORNING HIGH TIDE.
Security advisory : this is not a beginner's place. No one to rescue you, no public phone (and even if there was one, there is no rescue team around).
Three words : tropical, remote, powerful.

Ho ya ! Bossan bokan ! - Yep, Tajung aan is a Locals's spot and the locals are so friendly, without this ozzi expat called "river", an old man wearing a water cap, he is such an asshole !
Be carefull about him and his friends...
