Best way to get to this spot by staying at Baneng Beach resort http://www.simeulue.com/ Dave will get you there!!!!
This spot is like a machine. We stayed on Simeulue for 11 days and surfed this place at 4ft perfection everyday - without fail. The most consistent wave I've ever seen. Good fun too!!!
Typical peak of swell magnet Simeulue. Near to the road. Very easy access.
