Beng Bengs Surf Camp« on: September 25 2013 21:09:00 »
Me and a friend are thinking of taking a trip to the mentawais and staying at Beng Bengs surf camp. It is cheaper then the others and everything on the website looks great. Has anyone stayed there before and what was your experience like?

If the price includes, transfers from ferry, accommodation/food and all boat trips to breaks, i guess the price is fair, especially compared to other places.
But you should know that it is located next to about half a dozen places you can stay cheap (about $10-$15 US a night) but you must bring your food/water and pay for any boat trips on top of that and to get there and back from where ferry arrives/departs.
That said Beng beng surf camp has the nicest/biggest building in that area with best set up.
Just for interest sake, years back they ran as "Mentawai island lodge" then ran as a budget place, its called beng beng surf camp, but is actually located at E-bay about half hour walk from beng bengs.
