PULAU BANYAK > KAYAKING


World famous kayakers say: "Pulau Banyak is the best". Nothing beats it if you like sea kayaking. Paddling amongst the palm tree islands is amazing enough. Just roll off the canoe when you want to cool down, to swim, or to snorkel. Camping on deserted islands and drinking fresh coconuts. In Pulau Banyak you can also paddle along bizarre rock formations and up small rivers into the jungle. There are even a few waves ideal to do some kayak surfing.

Kayaks are available for half day or one day rental if you prefer going alone. It is however recommended to take a tour with a guide showing you the nice places, fixing camp and food. Several alternatives are available, both in Balai and in Haloban. There are tours for the absolute beginners, experienced paddlers and for the fanatic long distance kayaker. Ask to see the tour menus. Rental is app. Rp. 150.000 per day. A tour is app. 300-350.000 per day, incl. Guide, food, water and tent & sleeping mat.

Kayaking is a new attraction in Pulau Banyak. Yayasan Pulau Banyak (YPB) has purchased Sit-on-top kayaks suitable for Pulau Banyak. Half of them were donated by Kayakasia in Singapore. The paddles were donated by specialist paddle producer Mergner Paddel of Germany. Sumatra Savages help train the kayak guides.
