Red Island surf camp is a beautiful and uncrowded surf spot, situated in Banyuwangi, East Java which is only a 45 minute flight from Bali. Red Island Surf Camp lays in a secluded, beautiful bay surrounded by mountains and right on the beach.
It’s an ideal place to get away, relax and surf. Red Island is the perfect spot to learn to surf and improve your surfing, offering uncrowded,sand-bottom fun waves. Nearby is the famous Alas Purwo National Park and the famous G-land. The park is known for it’s variety in wildlife and world class consistent perfect waves. G-land is approx 2 hours from our location and trips are available from our camp. We also offer trips to the famous Ijen volcano Spend your day lazing in a hammock by the pool, surf fun beach-breaks, jump in a boat to go fishing and visit ‘lost paradise’ beach or climb a volcano. There is plenty to do for the adventurous and plenty of relax time for those wanting to just ‘Chillout’ on our amazing beach.
Waves Here at Red Island waves break all year round. Best times for each level of surfer are as follows; Learners– All year round Longboarders that like the small stuff: March-May, Oct-Dec Intermediate/advanced– May-Nov We also have access to the world famous breaks of G-LAND and surrounding breaks and a few secret spots too.
Out front of the camp breaks a perfect beach break long right and left-handers peel on a white- sand bottom. The wave is a perfect A-frame from 1 to 5 foot, with nice sections for turns and airs. When the swell gets bigger, the break turns into a long left, great for turns. Not only is there a perfect peak right in front of the camp, down the bay there are countless other peaks to choose from, generally a couple of feet bigger then the A-frame at the camp. The waves are ideally situated as the trade winds blow offshore all day and the bay is open to all swells.
Red Island consists of a variety of waves:
Rivermouth left-right peak- This super consistent break offers a super fun rippable left and right perfect for all levels of surfers.
Down the beach- a whole empty white sand beach with numerous left and right beach-breaks that only you and your friends will be surfing, as there are NO crowds here!
Secret Right- We have a very secret rivermouth right near by, its needs a big swell and favourable winds but when it does breaks it resembles the ‘Superbank’ in Australia.
G-LAND is only a 2 hour drive, so if you feel like testing your ability and courage on the shallow reefs we can go get some G-land Barrels. G-land is for intermediate/Advanced surfers only.
Catch a flight from Bali (DPS) to Banywangi (BWX) and we´ll be there to meet your flight in Banyuwangi airport. We will drive for one and a half hours out to Red Island Surf Camp where your adventure begins.
