Beachfront Property at Bintangs, Mentawai Island

Land located in front of one of the easiest barrels in the archipelago.

For sale is 1 acre of picturesque beachfront land located directly in front of Bintangs, one of the easiest and safest barreling waves on Mentawai Island.

This property is centrally located in the island chain. Myriad premiere waves (Hollow Trees, Lances Left, Lances Right/Wrong) are only a 10-minute bicycle, scooter, or boat ride away. Lesser known waves and secret spots are also close by. Almost all of Mentawai’s famous waves (Macaronis, Kandui, Rifles, Telescopes, and more) range between 30 minutes to two hours away by speedboat.

This property is also logistically convenient. Offloading building supplies will be easy with the nearby deepwater bay and a beach that is safe for boat landing. There’s also a little keyhole straight off the front beach for fast access to the ocean. Tucked behind nearby Duamata Island is a beautiful and safe anchorage that’s ideal for a yacht.

Several local government-funded infrastructure projects have recently been completed. A network of new roads now connect the region and provides easy access to shopping, surfing, ferries and general living via bicycle or motorbike. The government has invested in an electricity network in the area surrounding this property to stimulate tourism-based development. This new road and electrical network will connect to the New Mentawai Airport (only 30 minutes away by boat), which is scheduled to open in August, 2022. The various resorts, bars, and restaurants that already exist (and the ones rumored to be built) are providing a fun and vibrant surf community.

Beachfront land directly in front of a wave in Mentawai is almost impossible to find these days, so don’t miss out on this rare opportunity. All legal papers are organized with a clear freehold title (not leasehold like most of Mentawai).

Asking price: US$ 95,000
