Macaronis Surf Resort is like no other on earth…

Imagine, empty white sand beaches extending into clear turquoise ocean where perfect waves peel around the reef on both sides of the bay… its the kind of place dreams are made of!

Voted by the pros as the ‘funnest’ wave to surf in the world, Macas is undoubtedly one of the world’s surfing wonders, and most consistent and rippable left-hand reef breaks. 

Discovered in the early 1980’s and kept secret for over a decade, Macas popularity skyrocketed when word got out. Tourism Regulations now support a sustainable capacity of 40 surfers visiting daily, with 20 surfers permitted to stay at the resort at one time.

Summer months remain quite with quality uncrowded surf, when warmer weather keeps Southern hemisphere surfers closer to home. Southern Mentawais are open to all swell directions, in particular South swells, common in summer months, ideal for Macas and Greenbush.

Surfalot, top speed 35 knots & cruising at 28-30 knots, has arrived at Macas! Blog Post coming soon!

When to Come?

Macaronis Resort is Open Year Round!

April – October is regarded as the most consistent time for larger waves in the Mentawai Islands and Macaronis. This is when the Indian Ocean is producing storms regularly and swell is usually more intense from all directions. May – September will likely book out the quickest.

March & November are considered shoulder months, where world class surf can still regularly be scored with less people around. March especially offers a great opportunity, as warmer weather and optimal surf conditions keeps most surfers in the Southern hemisphere closer to home.

December – February is the Summer Season, where glassy surf in the 2-4 ft range is still common, with low or no crowds and occasional larger swells. South swells are dominant, ideal for Macas and Greenbush. First 10 surfers get 30% off and second 10 surfers get 20% Off (excludes Surf Clinics which are 10% Off, but include surf coaching and photography package).
