The camp can house a maximum of 10 persons and provides a traditional feel with modern facilities. The ideal Indonesian atmosphere gives our visitors a unique memorable stay. Our island offers amazing surfing opportunities with excellent breaks such as: E-bay, Beng-Bengs, Nipussi, Bank Vaults and Pitstops. You can find these high quality waves within a walking distance from our camp. With white sandy beaches, countless palm trees, turquoises waters, coral reefs and breathtaking waves, our Camp Siberut offers an exciting priceless experience.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Me and my girlfriend stayed in Bintang surf camp for 10 days. Wish we could stay forever!! It's a paradise.
Handra give us all the details making sure we wouldn't miss anything since the beggining!!
Everything went more than perfect. Starting with our airport pick up driver that drove us to Yani homestay in Padang. One night with some sleep in a good room and we were ready to board on Mentawai Fast Ferry. At 6am we had the tickets and a 3 hours boat ride was ahead. Arriving at Siberut we met Kep (super friendly person and the captain of Bintang surf camp), his brother and Anchor that drove us on their speed boat to Nyang Nyang island (1h30min).
Arriving at the camp we were super impressed on all the facilities and how organized they are. We stayed in a Bungalow and it was perfect (private room with a chinese style bed and a fan is more then enough in paradise). Mama made us amazing local food every single day and she can get very creative with it!! 3 very good meals a day and you won't need more.
They didn't had time schedule for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Whenever you felt hungry mama would make something.
Julupin and the rest of the crew they were so atencious with us.
The camp probably has the best location to watch the sunsets comparing to the others and the surf it's just right in the front if E-bay is working. Pitstops 10 minutes walking and Beng Bengs 20 minutes walking. If it's flat or onshore here you can always try the other side of the island or book a boat at the camp.
Thank you Handra for putting all of this together and making the trip of our life.
We felt we were completely in holidays, no concerns, they took care of us.
The best value for your money in the Ments.

We did 4 weeks in the mentawai. Handra organised every thing for us. Handra met us at the airport organise the ferry out to the islands and then met by Capt who organise us our accommodation at papa jam place at Ebay. We were there for 2 weeks the accomodation was great but the food could have been alittle bit better. Over all it was a great stay.
The last 2 weeks we stayed at HT’s at mama Losmen which was organised by Handra this place was amazing straight out the front of HT’s wave. Yeni and mama Losmen who owns the place were amazing the food and the service was spot on.
If you are looking for budget surf trip contact Handra he will organise everything for you.

Best Surf Trip, Handra organised everything perfectly from the moment we landed in Padang. Cap the captain met us in Siberut and took us on his boat to the camp he is an absolute legend even picked me up beers from Siberut a few times. Papa Jam and his wife own the camp, such amazing people they looked after us like family, food was great. Got epic waves couldn't have asked for a better trip. Thanks Handra, Cap, Papa Jam and his wife. See you again soon. 5 stars ++++++

Just spent 10 days here at the surf camp- central to many breaks, many walking distance. Bungalows on the beach. Great food, decent accommodations and the people are so friendly and helpful. They will make sure you enjoy your trip. Im coming back next year. Highly recommend.

These guys know how to do low cost Indo style Mentawai surf trip. Two different bungalows set up behind EBay - with Beng Bengs Pistops and Bank Vaults all within 40 minutes walk. They Alps have a boat for hire to get to any other spots. Food is great, beer is cold and nothing is a problem. Everything is organised for you from the airport pickup to advice on the best wave for the day. Contact Hendra in Padang at handra_harbi@yahoo.com or go to WWW.surfcampsiberut.com

Ebay Surf Camps Siberut is composed of 3 camps (1 camp is 1 bungalow)
- Usman's (Usman Deeon on FB)
- Emmanuel's (Usman's brother)
- Gordo's (same familly as Usman and Emmanuel)
There is no internet connection on the island

You can contact Handra (Usman's cousin) (handraharbi@gmail.com) to organize your trip. He lives in Padang, and answers fast. He is efficient.

Handra organized my 3 weeks trip (we were 2 friends).
- Yopi (the driver) came to pick up us at the airport, then drove us in Handra's house.
- We sleept in Handra's house 1 night. He lives with his familly. There are very friendly but for us, the bedroom and the shower / toilet were unconfortable for us (hot, open window, no mosquito net, and I do not talk about the bathroom). Handra loves cooking for you.
- In the morning they drove us to the harbour to take the ferry to Siberut
- Usman was waiting for us and drove us to Nyang Nyang by speedboat.

The camp is very basic but you are here to surf and sleep
The food (3 meals + tea / caffee) is included. Food is good (but always the same: rice + vegetables + potatoes + chicken or fish) and there is enough quantity.

The beds are clean and confortables, shower and toilet are basic and cleaned every days.

All the team is very friendly, we really loved our trip

When we came back, Yopi came to pick up us to go to Handra's house (we chose to go to an Hotel instead), and the day after to the airport.

Last thing, the camp localization is very good, walking distance: Ebay = 5 min ; Pitstop = 15 min ; Beng Beng = 25 min ; Nipussy = 40 min

You can use the 2 boats to go to other waves (playground...): Around 100€ / day for the full boat (long distance waves in the morning, back to the camp to eat, short distance waves in the afternoon)

There are also cold beers at the camp, this is almost the only thing that you can buy

When I read the other comments, it feels like we didn't go to the right place!
This place (which name is Gordo's) is about 100 meters from the beach, so it's a bit remote in comparison with other camps.
We went there because we had seen it on the Internet. It's smart because there is about 3 or 4 websites for this place, but with different names so it's confusing, but all these concern Gordo's place. We chose it because of the price, it's cheap relatively to other accomodations in Nyang Nyang, but still expensive. Plus you have to pay a lot for the transfer by speedboat from muaram siberut (everything is very expensive in playgrounds so bring lots of cash). Handra was quite helpful and the staff really nice, Goa and Iza especially. The food was good too, and there was plenty.
But the place is so basic, uncomfortable (there is no chairs, nowhere to chill, except under the roof where there is a table and rough benches, and no sunlight, it's very dark). There are no games, nothing to read, no nothing.
The generator, was really bad too: from the room we were staying at, it was about 15 meters right in front, and it's so loud, even with earplugs you'd still hear and smell it. Horrible. It was on from 6pm to 12-1pm.
It would be so easy to improve this place with very few, but it looks like no one cares.
We were told afterwards by people in Padang, that nobody comes back to this place, and I totally understand why. Because there is much better for a little more money.
I'm sorry to say all these bad things, but I hope it will be helpful for travelers and for the owners as well.
