Welcome to Tanjung Setia & Krui
Most of the action is focused on the village of Tanjung Setia, 25km south of Krui. While surfers still make up 99% of the tourist traffic, the area’s laconic and laid-back buzz is also perfect if you’re overlanding to Java down Sumatra's south coast. Non-surfers can try the sandy beaches along the coastline just south of Krui, which also has some beginner beach breaks.
Around midway between Bengkulu and Bandar Lampung, Tanjung Setia is a good spot to relax and recharge after one too many long Sumatran bus journeys. It can also be used as a base to explore Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park.
