If you’re a keen fisherman, there are fantastic places for trawling, fly-fishing, drop shotting and spearfishing on Maonu Island.

Fish we regularly hook up include:

  • King fish
  • Spanish mackerel
  • Baracuda
  • Bonta
  • Dorada
  • Tuna

For spearfishing, there are amazing reefs that surround the island as well as deeper outer reefs that are yet to be explored properly.

For those who wish to have a cultural experience with some indigenous Mentawai people, we offer trekking through our company www.tribaladventure.org.

We provide cultural trips to see the local Mentawai Shaman if guests wish to have a taster of their life within the rainforest.

During your jungle trek, you will be staying in a local clan’s Umma longhouse and if you’re lucky, you might even see them perform a traditional healing ceremony.

All you’ll need is a roll mat, sleeping bag, mosquito net and appropriate footwear for jungle walking.

The Shaman frequently pay us a visit in camp to relax and interact with guests too.
