More than just surf to make the most of your stay
At Kingfisher Bay Resort we like to offer a wide range of activities, with an emphasis on utilising the natural and cultural resources unique to the Mentawai Islands. However we also take every possible measure to provide you with the opportunity to enjoy your favourite activities and interests that you normally don’t have time to pursue at home.
The tropical waters of Southern Sipora provide excellent fishing opportunities for the casual angler. The resort boats are primarily used for surfing transport, so between wave-chasing sessions why not drop a line and maybe catch yourself dinner! Fishing tackle and equipment at the resort is fairly basic and limited, therefore we encourage more serious fishermen to bring their own gear.
We are very fortunate to have a wide choice of fantastic snorkeling sites with warm, crystal clear water close to the resort. Take a short bike or boat ride to discover a diverse collection of hard and soft corals which provide a home and feeding ground for schools of vibrant reef fish, shellfish, anemones, giant clams and turtles.
People of all fitness levels, even those with only limited swimming ability, can enjoy snorkeling. For first timers, one of our staff members will be happy to give you a quick lesson in snorkel use and basic safety before you take the plunge. Snorkel equipment at the resort is available for free use by all guests.
For those who can’t stay away from the technology, we have our digital area with internet, DVD player and a sound station to connect you back with the real world. Also, daily selection and edition of the photos from the surf sessions.
We offer high-speed internet satellite connection with WI-FI to connect your laptop – not included on the package.
