Home Blogs Batu Island
The dream-like Batu Islands are a very huge area and there is much
not yet known about its history and nature. It is extremely beautiful
and probably the best place for beach lovers and surfers in North
Sumatera. One could easily spend two months here just travelling around
and enjoying a unique area, seldom visited or even heard about.
This archipelago has 101 islands right on the equator. Except for a
handful of secretive surfers not many people know the area, not even
Indonesians on the mainland. It is very isolated and remote, despite a
weekly air connection with Medan (over Gunung Sitoli) and Padang.
Thing to Do: Swimming, Fishing, Scuba Diving, Snorkling, Sun Bathing,
