 Access

Can access the bay via two or three charter boats that operate there, or by staying at the camp inside the bay. I think the camp is called Banyak Lodge. From the camp all 3 waves can be accessed by 2-3 min boat ride

 Additional Information

The Bay of Plenty is aptly named. The outside left point, Ujung Lolok, starts breaking at 5ft and holds as big as it can get! It's a fast, hollow wrapping left point that requires a big board and even bigger balls.

Across the other side of the bay lies the gem of the bay, Gunturs. A right point break with two barreling sections that often link up. Since the April 2010 earthquake the reef has sunk IMPROVING the wave quality and now offering up 5 second barrels on the end section. A perfect indo wave, without the indo crowds. Often no boats in the bay and only one land camp.

In the middle there is a perfect macaroni's style left that needs big swell and it is protected from the wind. When sizable swell comes, it is the only spot in the banyaks to go if your not a hell-man. When those big swells hit it is a playful but barreling wave that I still think about in my dreams.

Atmosphere

A great bay with 3 waves that break in 3 different directions, and suit all ability levels from kook to barrel charger! Some boats occasional visit the bay and there is one land camp, Banyak Island Lodge. Scored awesome waves here with only one boat and a few guys from the land camp. Gunturs!!! What a hollow wave...deep tubes!

General

A few boats operate in the area, and the only place to stay on land to surf the Banyaks is inside the bay. One of the last frontiers left in Indo, offering consistent perfect waves and little to no crowds.
