Macaronis Resort is situated on Siniai Island, just off the coast of North Pagai Island in the southern region of the Mentawai Islands, Indonesia. Located centrally between Katieit on South Sipora (Lances surfing area) and Sibegau Island nearby South Pagai (Thunders surfing area). Macaronis Resort is in a very remote area, 120 nautical miles from Padang, West Sumatra.

The largest village and port on North Pagai Island is Sikakap, with passenger ferry transits to-from Padang. From Sikakap a speed boat transfers guests to Macaronis Resort. The resort itself is built along-side picturesque Silabu salt water lagoon, just across the bay from legendary Macaronis wave. Macaronis wave breaks in Pasangan Bay, located just outside of the lagoon. The resort is 5 km from the closest village, Silabu, which is 3 km inland on the edge of an arterial river system.

Macaronis is visited annually by pro surfers, shapers, photographers, and frothers alike. There is no doubt Macaronis is one of the best waves on the planet. Although perfect and consistent Macaronis is what most people come to surf, there are many other waves to choose from including some perfect alternatives for new to intermediate surfers. At Macaronis Resort, surfers of all levels can find exactly what they are looking for in Mentawai surf.
