There are loads of things to do in North Nias. The long coast line with its many beaches and islands offer many opportunities for surfing, snorkelling and fishing. The interior of the island is also a great place to explore for adventurous travellers! Nestled amongst the rolling hills are waterfalls, rivers, caves and traditional villages. Great scenery and roads with very little traffic also make Nias the perfect place for Bike Tours.
The Art of doing Nothing!
While there are many things to do here, there are few organized activities. Travellers who come to North Nias have to be resourceful and make their own arrangements. Here you are truly off the beaten path and have to rely on yourself to make things happen. Hardy travellers are rewarded with unique experiences; being the only person on a beautiful beach, having a surf wave all to yourself or being the first outside visitor to a remote village.
Apart from all the exciting stuff you can do here, don’t forget that one of the most important reasons to visit North Nias is to do nothing! The slow pace of island life is a great way to take a break from the stress of everyday life. Relaxing and chilling out on the beach, i.e. doing nothing, is an activity we can really recommend.
