Unique experience that I had never experienced before. This is not an ordinary beach, it's a sort of small community, very far away from touristic mood and a real life, something like on a parallel planet. Ricky is very arranging and cool, the young crew...More

About
Description
Ricky's Beach House is a guesthouse located on a small private beach 10 minutes walking distance from a small fishing village. The village, Nagari Sungai Pinang, is situated on the west coast of the Indian Ocean, south More of Padang, the capital city of West Sumatra, Indonesia. This is a guesthouse where the most open-minded travelers meet to share their travel stories, feel the family atmosphere, discover the local lifestyle, enjoy the warm temperature of the Indian Ocean, join the acoustic live music sessions with our crew at night and be a part of community-based Eco-Tourism Project. From the terrace of our comfortable bungalows you are only a few steps away from the ocean, and behind the bungalows you’ll find typical Sumatran forests where you can spot monkeys, birds and even monitor lizards. Our friendly staff is always ready to help you and will accompany you on daytrips to beautiful remote islands, a nearby waterfall, and other places, at your request. Our Village Nagari Sungai Pinang is a small fishing village about two hours away from Padang. Here you will be welcomed into an authentic Minangkabau community and get a feeling of real Indonesian village culture, with possibilities to participate in different aspects of everyday life. Populated by about 1000 inhabitants, most of them fishermen and farmers, these villagers live an easy lifestyle without rush, fully sharing commitment and respect. The hospitality of the villagers, combined with breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and the Bukit Barisan Hills, will make you feel at home as soon as you enter Nagari Sungai Pinang . Just make sure you’ll have full energy to reply to all the ‘hello’s’ from local kids when taking a walk through the village! In addition to exploring the surrounding beaches, ocean and forests, our project also offers you a chance to join the local fishermen when pull up fishing net on the beach, assist the farmers in their daily work, as well as going on a hike to the nearby waterfall, surfing for beginners, island hopping, snorkeling in many different spots, take a woodcarving course and play football with the local youth. And if you are a big fan of cooking and Indonesian food, don't miss the opportunity to learn the secrets of the local cuisine from village women. Less
