About the neighbourhood
Asu may be off the beaten track but that's likely what sets it apart from other islands. The lack of crowd could be Asu's biggest draw card. Sozinhos surf lodge is in front of the wave, nestled in the shade of the jungle. Both upstairs rooms have sea views which is unique to Asu island. Our gazebo that has waves lapping on it at spring high tide is the perfect place to chill and take photos. We also trawl for the many large palagic fish that love the warm, clear water that surround these islands. The rock and surf fishing with our spinning gear can also produce a nice fish.
Getting around
Most of Asu has'nt changed for many years and has narrow jungle paths for us to travel on. You can explore further by walking around the island in 3 hours. Surf-guided boat trips are done on favourable swell and wind conditions to other waves in the area. For boat trips to the other surf breaks or for fishing/diving trips we ask the guests to cover the fuel costs.
