Three great breaks within walking distance and a wide variety of accommodation and nice little warungs. Not a great beach for tanning/swimming as there is a strong rip where its deep enough/ reef where it's not. Also locals will stare and people often approach you for photos, especially if you are female, which I guess is because there seemed to... More

This beach is lovely to visit and have a look at the surfing. However its not really suitable for swimming and the locals will stare most of the time. But the restaurants on the beach are nice and have a great view.

Good fun reef breaks on both the left and right side of the beach with a cute little shorebreak in the middle. Can be a very hectic spot if the swell gets big!

Had a couple of visits to Krui during my stay in Sumatra. The beach and surf was beautiful but the litter adjacent to the beach is a huge problem. It needs to be addressed before it's beauty is lost.

Krui left is a nice small wave, but be careful it is shallow and the coral is sharp. The point break is very small and it gets pretty crowded though, so go there early when it gets too big at the point.

Krui left worked on all swell 2ft-15ft. soft and inviting when small and not massive but full on power and a deep makeable left hand barrell when swell maxed out at 15ft and everywhere else was unridable.Rights similarly held the big swell and were hollow and makeable for experienced surfers. All Krui breaks are over fairly shallow coral and are... More
