Welcome to Lhoknga & Lampu’uk
Comprehensively rebuilt after the 2004 tsunami, the coastal weekend spots in Lampu’uk are beginning to attract more surfers and kitesurfers as the word spreads. Surfing season is from October to April, though there are also waves at the beach in front of the cement factory the rest of the year, which is also when there are favourable winds for kitesurfing.
Lhok Nga has decent waves too, and it’s becoming particularly popular with kitesurfers. Given it's only 14km from Banda Aceh it's an easy day trip as well.
