Transfers to the island are easily arranged depending on your budget, I have caught the over night ferry and the fast ferry, and believe me take the morning... More

Third trip to Awera for me. In fact if you go on their website youll see some of my pics from previous trips. That being said,this last was definitely the best. Fergus and Pete are working to improve what is already an amazing service for the money. The new staff is outstanding, food excellent but this time the waves really... More

Great place, very good value for money if compared to other Mentawais operations. Fergus the owner runs a very good operation and nothing is a problem, during our stay we shared the guest house with 4 other surfers (max of 6 Guests) and the day was planned to suit everybody. The food was outstanding with plenty of fresh fruit and... More

We had a geriatric bucket trip to Awera, really enjoyed the location, the staff were awesome, so casual and unhasselled, always up for any request we made of them, food appeared whenever we were hungry, the boat was almost on hand whenever we wanted to go exploring, except when it broke down, which was only a slight problem, as another...

The staff all made us feel very welcome and worked hard to make our stay memorable. Take a good book put your feet up and unwind. Once you adjust to the pace of this place its very enjoyable. Unfortunately the swell... More
