A fish-hook piece of land creates the perfect horseshoe bay of Teluk Lagundri and the Point surf break at Pantai Sorake, which is generally regarded as one of the best right-handers in the world. The main surfing season is June to October, with a peak in July and August when the waves can be very solid. Folks refer to this area interchangeably as Sorake or Lagundri.
The waves discovered here in 1975 by Aussie surfers Kevin Lovett and John Giesel have become shallower and more perfectly shaped and powerful following the 2004 earthquake and tsunami. With a couple of exceptions, all accommodation sits cheek by jowl along Pantai Sorake, which is considered to be more protected from possible future disasters.
