Surrounded by world-class waves, rainforest and coral reefs, the Awera Island Guesthouse is a small, comfortable and affordable accommodation option for surfers who just can’t wait to get their hands on the waves of the Mentawai Islands.
Awera Island is located within 30 minutes longboat ride of more than 10 quality waves, including the world class Telescopes, which is only 10 minutes away.
With a maximum of 5 or 6 guests at any one time we offer an unmatched opportunity to surf these waves with the fewest possible people.
Larger groups of 4 to 6 also have the option of upgrading to a faster speedboat with a much greater range, this allows guests at Awera to access every wave in the Playgrounds region right down to Lances and beyond. With a top speed of well over 40 knots “Lina” can have you surfing anywhere from Lances to Bugerworld in as little as 45 minutes.
For those who aren’t into surfing, can always resort to fishing, snorkeling and spearfishing.
