A

rriving at GinGin you’ll be greeted by the vision of our home surf break Beng-Bengs. A super fun and consistent left-hander, Beng Beng’s peels along the reef on the doorstep of your accommodation and aligns a beautiful pristine lagoon perfect for those who like to swim or snorkel. Over 15 world class surf breaks are within a 20 minute boat ride from your accommodation.

GinGin is a family-friendly destination, with surf breaks to suit every surfer’s age and ability. Mum, dad and the kids will all feel at home at our surf break Beng Beng’s, and you can watch your friends, family and kids surf out the front while you sit and enjoy a meal at our restaurant. Good Times and Burger World are also local breaks suitable to less experienced surfers. We encourage you to bring your kids and they will love the engagement with local families at GinGin’s. Our owner’s daughter Zoe has been clocking in hours at GinGin since 10 months old, and our staff’s kids visit and stay regularly.

GinGin is located in a secluded region of Nyang Nyang Island, in the north Mentawai Islands, characterized by a wet equatorial climate, warm and humand, synonymous of a great surf trip. Nyang Nyang Island is an undeveloped slice of paradise within the Mentawaiian Archipelago, populated only by only a small number of local villages and accommodation catering to surfers. The island stretches approximately 5km from end to end, with almost 60% covered by dense, lush, tropical rainforest with a variety of forest types and multitude of rivers that make up a complex system of tributaries running down to the island’s shoreline. A maze of walking trails weave throughout the interior and circumference of the island, used by locals for moving between villages and between copra farming areas.

A multicultural collaboration, being Australian, French, and Mentawaiian owned, GinGin Mentawai Surf Accommodation is a blend of all three cultures. Our natural bungalows combine traditional style with western comforts and amenities, ensuring your peace of mind and relaxation in between epic waves.

Preserving the environment whilst you have a great time surfing is our number one objective. To achieve this, GinGin features include a 100% sustainable ReedBed water treatment processes and Australian designed and engineered waste management systems, so that all of our waste water is filtered, drained and re-used in the most sustainable way, without being detrimental to our precious island and lagoon. We are also very dedicated to limiting the use of plastics.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU AND ENSURING YOUR STAY AT THE BEAUTIFUL WAVE RICH MENTAWAI ISLANDS IS A TRIP OF A LIFETIME!

  • This place is epic! Cannot wait to get back to Gin Gin!! Walk out of your room onto the beach where a nice left hander peels or to go snorkeling / fishing / spearfishing in the surrounding reef, fresh coconuts straight from the palm trees anytime you like, delicious food from the sweetest cooks, funny / fun / super nice and accommodating staff, just a short walk through the jungle to 4 other breaks or a short boat ride to about 15 other breaks...doesn't get better...

  • What a magical wonderland! No better place to unplug, dive in, and join in the epicness of Indo! The staff of GinGin was incredibly knowledgable of all the local surf breaks, and accomodating of all and any needs one might have in the Mentawai Islands. Think white sand tropical paradise, "Where the Wild Things Are" tree lines, and sparkly turquoise wave galore. Sunset guitar singalongs of local Mentawai songs, feasts of 3 meals a day, and 2-3 session days left me satiated, fulfilled, and ALIVE. If you are even thinking about it, Go Go Go!

  • Just spent 10 days at the Gin Gin Mentawai Surf Lodge. Had an awesome time, the surf was amazing, beats the crowds elsewhere. Access to 10 world class waves within a 20 boat ride, just my mates and I. The food was delicious and fresh, the resort was great, no mozzies!!!! Cool boat ride through the jungle back to the main land. Would totally recommend it to anyone.
