Unlike some of the other operators in Indonesia who set up shop due to the unregulated surf tourism growth that has impacted the region over the last couple decades, WavePark has not jeopardized the provision of basic services to the locals. In fact, the resort has enhanced many of these services most of us take for granted—like having working toilets, which the resort installed in nearby villages to resolve local sanitation issues. Resort staff also provide transportation for the local coconut harvesters from their villages to the coconut farms. In addition to providing direct support to local health clinics, anyone from the adjacent villages that sustain minor injuries are treated at the resort with stitches, bandaids, and antibiotics. Next time you’re planning a trip to Indo, think about all the surf tourism operators who have exploited the local community and environment—your accommodations choice matters and remember that WavePark has been leading by example from day one.
