Panaitan Island lies off the western tip of Java in the Sunda Strait, the sea that links Java and Sumatra and is part of the World Heritage-listed Ujung Kulon National Park. Panaitan Island is as abundant in wildlife as it is in the world class waves that surround its reefs. The view from the boat moored in Panaitan Bay is a surfer’s dream: peeling waves break against backdrops of lush, unspoiled jungle with monkeys and deer on the beachs. Most famous for its relentless, heaving tubes known as Apocalypse and One Palm Point, the island also boasts a wide range of options to cater to all levels of surfers.

One Palm Point
This is a world famous left point break. This point break is without doubt one of the best in the world. Waves here peel perfectly all the way down the point with a barrel that is wide open barrelling the whole way over a shallow bottom that inspires paranoia but creates record-time tube rides. One Palm Point is not a spot for the beginner. It works best on a good size swell with a good tide to avoid the reef. It gets a bit dangerous at low tide and special care needs to be taken with many surfers opting for wetsuits and helmets for protection from the reef. Its also important to have the right surfboard for this wave as the whole thing is just so fast so a bit of length and suitable for very fast barrels.
This is a very consistant wave attracting more swell than any of the other breaks at Panaitan. It is an easier soft wave, hence the name....but it can be a fun long ride making a pleasant change from the speed and difficulty of One Palm or Apocalypse. Great place for your fun shortboard and beginners. Sometimes its the best bet when there is small swell.
For the intermediate to experienced surfer. Apocalypse doesn´t look like much as you approach it from behind, but paddle into it from the boat and you will find an awesome right hander that barrels like Pipeline only longer. Every wave shuts down at the end inside section but thankfully the reef is not too shallow. Experts only, higher tides the go a feisty wave that peaks, walls, plumes, and fires. The water is quite deep at the take-off point, but a combination of funneled wave speeds, strong offshore winds and a receptive, stationary reef causes incoming swells to rise fast, hover, before hollowing out and breaking defiantly.
This smoking left is for the intermediate or advanced surfer. This is a fun, barreling, left-hander located further down from One Palm Point inside the bay. Napalms is always a good bet for getting a nice barrel as well as getting in some good turns.Probably the most frequently surfed wave at Panaitan, and with good reason. The left-hand reef here delivers barrels with mechanical perfection, and they are more make able than One Palm thanks to a defined channel. Take-offs are straight-forward, then a lined-up wall leads to a full-on barrel before tapering off into deep water. Higher tides are best if you want to avoid the shallow second section.
There are many other surf breaks in the area for you to explore.Our guides will help you find the best waves for you.
One Palm Point is for barrel masters.
