Macas left is a wave with a long barrel directly after take-off, followed by a wall that lets you carve and hack to your hearts content! It is a remarkably consistent surf spot on either large or small swells, on all tides and most wind conditions. Macaroni’s is accessed by a five-minute speedboat ride from Macaroni’s Resort, while Maca’s Right is even closer. A small armada of boats ranging from a five-meter dinghy to a 22ft alloy speedboat for surf transfers is available for guests to surf Macaronis Left, Macaronis Right, Silabu Left, Green Bush, the Thunders region, and Bat Cave. The boats can also be used for short range fishing and snorkelling excursions.
Depending on the season, waves vary in size from 2 to 10 foot with the average wave height being about 4-5 ft. (head ½ high or 8ft faces) they can range anywhere from fun sized walls to awesome stand-up barrels.
The wet season starts in mid-October and lasts until late March-April, with the swells dropping to a more comfortable fun size coupled with some of the most uncrowded line-ups. Winds during this time are variable and glassy. Check for the low season specials during this period.
April is the beginning of dry season, which coincides with the start of the swell season. The Southern hemisphere swells start pulsing up the Indian Ocean with peak swell season being June through to September. This period also sees the winds turn to a favourable easterly direction.
