Getting to Paradise Surf Camp is likely going to take longer than you may imagine. Krui is one of the most far-flung surf destinations in the world, and while there’s a new airport scheduled to open up in Krui proper any day now, you currently still need to fly into Bandar Lampung (TKG) airport. Once you’re in Bandar Lampung, you then take a taxi to Paradise. This drive takes around 5 hours depending on traffic and weather conditions and is mostly through the mountainous, verdant Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park. While the drive can be arduous, remember that nothing good comes easy and that epic surf lies at the end of this mountainous, winding road. Also- this park is home to native bears, elephants, and even tigers.
Many people come to surf in Krui from Bali in order to escape the crowds and step into a chiller, more laid back Indonesia surf holiday. The Krui region has very little traffic, congestion, pollution, and trash when compared to Bali and it’s no reason why many surfers come to Paradise Surf Camp to escape Bali’s hectic landscape. Even if you know every Bali secret surf spot, the waves in Krui will be way less crowded. The waves are world class and while there are people around, it’s nowhere close to as crowded as Bali. Also, Krui supports the surf explorer. There are tons of waves that are not regularly surfed that the average 2-week guest ignores. Driving up or down the coast from Paradise Surf Camp will lead to many fruitful discoveries on the right day!
