Welcome to Cimaja
About 100km south of Bogor, Cimaja is an attractive, low-key surf resort with a good choice of accommodation and excellent waves. There's also a mystical quality to the place. After a long sunset session, as you wander back through the rice fields along the canals, you'll hear the ethereal calls to prayer filter through the palms. True, the line up can swell to over twenty guys in the high season, but you could get lucky and surf with three or four too. Plus, if you've been suffering in Java's teeming cities, the slow pace and oceanic air makes for an exhilarating change.
To get here you have to pass through the large, unlovely resort of Pelabuhan Ratu; Cimaja is 8km further west.
