Nias Island is famous for its world-class surfing! While the most well-known waves are located in the south of the Island, North Nias also offers some great surfing. In fact, most of the tourists coming to the northern part of the Island are adventurous surfers heading for the village of Afulu on the west coast.
The best known wave here is known simply as Afulu, which is a high quality left-hander located near Afulu village. The west coast of Nias gets consistent waves from April to November. Within a few kilometers of Afulu there are several other accessible ‘secret’ spots for experienced surfers and beach breaks for beginners.
