MBSR is only 10 minutes by car from Sinabang Airport, 20 minutes from the main shopping town of Sinabang and is centrally located for fast access to all the waves on Simeulue and surrounding Islands. Simeulue has the longest fetch of all the Indonesian Islands. This unique positioning means it catches swells from the West that originate around Africa and Madagascar. It also picks up the full brunt of any swell from the South as it sticks out at more of an angle than other islands. Simeulue’s longer swell lines, power and perfect barrels are a result of the island sitting just north of the 7290m depths of the Sunda Trench.
Anytime is a good time to visit MBSR as there are waves and favorable winds all year round. Due to the doldrums latitude, there are no dominant wind patterns, so conditions are relatively calm most of the year. The Southern Indian Ocean is the most efficient swell machine on the planet. So, you can expect numerous 6-10ft (2-3m) SW swells per month between April and October, as well as consistent 3-6ft (1-2m) swells during low-season. Simeulue receives the same swells as the Mentawai Islands as well as more westerly swells from higher in the Indian Ocean. The biggest swells typically hit the island from June to August. Having said that, every year offers up different weather patterns and clean medium size swells can be enjoyed every month of the year. Given the number of breaks, regardless of the season there is almost always a 3 to 5ft wave option.
There are uncrowded waves all along the south and western side of the island and some breaks that are yet to be named or even discovered. Within 5 to 75 minutes from the resort there are at least 10 quality waves. Ranging from super hollow reefs to more mellow beach breaks. We have experienced surf guides who stay actively across the latest forecast and are excited to get guests on the best waves on the day, whatever your level. Every evening the guides will discuss the best options for the next day. After an early morning swell, wind and tide check the call will be made for the group or, you can go explore the island’s waves by yourself. Typically, you can surf one spot in the morning and one or even two spots in the afternoon. We know that everyone has different surfing levels but the beauty of Simeulue is that there are plenty of different wave options to match or push your ability.
