Sumatra Beaches
& Islands

Sumatra is not well known for its beaches, but it has some great ones! If you like to surf then Sumatra offers some of the best surfing locations in Indonesia. The great thing is that you can mix a trip to the beach with other activities such as trekking, historic sights or even go for a snorkel on a nearby reef. The islands off the coast of Sumatra also offer excellent beaches and can be accessed via a boat.
