Where to sleep in Gerupuk
There are only a few options for accomodation in Gerupuk, and the small Mosque in the north of the village can wake you up at night. But this is something you have to expect while travelling through a Muslim country. So if you are a light sleeper, don’t forget your earplugs!
1. Edo’s Homestay
Edo’s Homestay has 5 simple Double Rooms a small Restaurant and a Surfshop. They offer Boards for rent and Surf Lesson for a reasonable price. Edo was the first Local engaged in tourism and started his business renting Boards, which some Australian Surfers gave to him as a gift years before surf tourism discovered the Bay. The Restaurant has a variety of Indonesian and western food for a good price, however the local food is the better choice.
2. Sugesty Homestay
“Sugesty” is very a simple but charming family owned Homestay. It has 3 rooms made of bamboo next to the beach and a very comfy hammock in front of the rooms. For those staying longer, the family will prepare a nice dinner on their last day.
3. Aussie Homestay
Aussie Homestay is a small 2 storey House with 4 simple Rooms, all with TV/DVD. The price is good and includes breakfast. Try to get a Room at the top, from there you’ll have a good view over the Bay.
“Duyung” is not on the beach side of the village, but scores with big clean rooms, a nice garden setting and good Pancakes.
