In this episode of Sailing Nandji (Sailing Indonesia, Ep 151), we arrive to our Ultimate Anchorage, the Bay of Plenty in the Banyak islands. This is truly our paradise.
Surfing from a sailboat is much harder than you think and finding a place that has an all weather anchorage, zero swell and roll in the anchorage, beautiful white sandy beaches, crystal clear water and then pumping waves a short tender ride away through mangroves, which is almost as much fun as the surf itself!
We truly have found what we are looking for! I think once we left we have now decided that we will sail around the world just to come back here!!! Discover more in Sailing Indonesia Ep 151.
About Bay of Plenty
Bay of Plenty in Banyak Islands is an exposed reef break that has very consistent surf. May-Oct (Dry Season) is the best time of year for waves. Offshore winds are from the northeast. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. The left hand reef break is better than the right.. The quality of the surf isn’t affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it’s not likley to be crowded. Rocks are a hazard.
