UPDATE APRIL 2017:
The season is here for surf and fishing adventures and while transport to and from Enggano Island has been a bit thin things are on the up. The ferry is back to the regular service and now Susi has committed to flying 5 times per week making the opportunity to fit in with your schedule all the more easier. Now there should be less worry about connecting with returning international flights coming back from Enggano Island.
UPDATE: Good news for the progress of Enggano Island. Susi Air now has a larger 15 seater plane and also a new schedule of four days per week as of November 2016 to travel to Enggano Island. Those days are currently Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday but be aware that those schedules do change from month to month. Also no new news on the allowance of surf boards on the flight, more updates to follow on that. Currently the best mode of transport for surf trips is the ferry ride. This is not so bad as the ferry arrives at the perfect location to start a surf trip on Enggano Island.
The airport for Enggano island is also having an upgrade to it and some time in 2017 new flights will be available for Enggano Island possibly including Wings (Lion) and maybe a Garuda flight. Keep your eyes open for that one.
From surf trips to wildlife photography, bird photography and sea adventures, a visit to the local villages, Enggano island has a multitude of natural attractions to see. It’s truly an escape from the tourist destinations and will give you the time and freedom to relax and enjoy what is a natural untouched wonderland.
