ordinary - Windy, isolated place with average waves. The turtles are cool though.

hoax - Spent time at Turles in June 2010 and was not impressed. Windy, isolated and fickle wave. Go to G-Land. Much better deal. PS. watch your belongings. You could get ripped off.

Accomodation - Check out www.batubesar.com. The accomodation is reasonable and in my opinion the food is the best in the area. Mama's used to be good until she sold it. Hexa has nice rooms and cheap, but a bit far from the surf. Dont stay at the illegal surf camps right on the beach in front of the wave 'turtles' they're built on environmentally friendly land that's there to protect the turtles habitat.
