Salty Dog Hostel Community Permaculture Program

Nias offers a great variety of spare-time activities. From spear-fishing to jungle walks, chasing waterfalls and boating trips to surrounding tropical islands with world class waves and snorkeling, we offer adventure and relaxation. Spend your time bathing in the ocean or surfing it, or learn more about Nias' unique culture: visit one of the many ancient megalithic sites, hike up to one of the traditional villages in the jungle where you can admire or even spend a night in beautiful traditional wooden buildings, watch young warriors perform the stone-jumping ceremony, and hear stories about tribal wars and headhunting. One of the most unique things about Nias is that there is virtually no tourism: staying here you will have a truly authentic experience of Indonesian culture, integrate into the local community, and become part of a committed group of people who truly care about this beautiful island.
