The space

Villa Sedeoen is centrally located directly in front of the 4 main surf breaks at Nembrala Beach. Each room is air conditioned and has a ceiling fan. Each room has private entrance and security lock. Each room has it's own private bathroom. Every room has a king size bed with mosquito netting. A large roofed veranda out in front of the rooms offers a beautiful view of the ocean, surf breaks and a place to relax and visit.

The Surf:
There are 4 surfing breaks at Nembrala Beach if you include the 2 beginner surfing breaks. There are other surf breaks nearby accessible by boat. The surf and wind conditions sometimes start to get good in April but the winds can be switching directions or no wind. But sometimes April can have onshore wind days. May is the month that starts to get more consistent offshore wind but still can have no wind days or switching wind direction. By June the trade winds have become stable and blow from a predictable offshore direction, the trade winds are strongest offshore in August. Then in Sept the winds starts to be less hard. Oct is like May. Nov is like April. December to March is not good for surfing.

•T-Land- the famous long left hand reef break with 2 main take off spots depending on the size, tide and swell direction. Located to your left when looking out towards the ocean. You can walk out a low tide but bring reef booties, best to take a boat out. Bring Binoculars to see it from the house better because it is an outer reef break. Usually good all day during the trade wind season of May to November and good on any tide.
•The Bommie – a fun but short right hand reef break that can get heavy when it is big, needs a lower or medium tide. Located straight out in front of the house. Also needs a boat or a long paddle. Can get choppy even during the offshore winds because of chop in the boat harbor channel, so better early in the morning.
•Learners – a fun wave on a high to medium tide, that is good for beginner surfers or longboard, never gets big and is an easy paddle from the beach. Located just to right side of the house.
•Menehuenes – a good wave for kids and beginner surfers on high tide only . Located just to the left side of the house.

Other Surf Breaks in the area:

•Sucky Mama’s – a good fast right hand reef break, located 10 minute boat ride to the right side of the house when looking out towards the ocean. Cannot be seen from the house, gets blown out when the Trade winds start to blow so you have to go early morning. Good on any tide.

•Boa – a very good right hand reef break 20 minutes by car or motorbike. Good on any tide but has wind problems during the trade wind season and usually gets blown out early.

•Do’o Island – Outer Island right reef break 25 minutes by fast boat. Good on medium tide going high but has wind problems during the trade wind season and is usually blown out but can be very good on it’s day. Dangerous sharp reef and shallow. A long way to the hospital if you get hurt. Experts only.
