Welcome to Umma Maonu, a local family run camp in the beautiful Mentawai islands. Located in a secluded part of the Playgrounds surf region, surfers can experience the world class waves as well as get a feel of true island living. The reefs surrounding the island are perfect for snorkeling, spearing and fishing.

For the non-surfer, if you get tired of the amazing reefs and beaches on the island, the rain-forest trekking on Siberut is a one of a kind experience. Hendri, the owner of the camp knows the rain-forest and its indigenous people and shaman better than anyone and will make sure its a trip you will not forget.

Our aim is to provide you with the best time possible with the most authentic view of Mentawai. Whether it be finding the best waves possible, to snorkeling on beautiful coral reef among the fish, trekking to meet the shaman still holding onto an ancient culture or just chilling and living the island ‘dream’

On Siberut, the largest island in the Mentawais lives an original culture with a unique way of life. The “Mentawai Shaman” tribe lives in wonderful symbiosis with nature in the equatorial rain forest. Visit the traditional villages of the Mentawaians and sample a way of life that has long disappeared in other parts of the world
