Beran Island Surf Lodge
Beran Island Surf Lodge on Ailinglaplap is open for action! Australian water sports entrepreneur Martin Daly first visited Beran in 2006 and since then he’s worked long and hard to bring the water sports resort to reality.
According to Martin’s Indies Trader web site, Beran Island is about 45 acres and is central to the best surfing spots on the atoll. As well as the resort building, Martin has constructed a concrete wharf and two miles of roads on the island. World champion athletes who have visited Beran include surfer Kelly Slater.
Martin’s fleet of boats available for charter in RMI include: MV Indies Trader 1 & 2, the Windward, and a 23-foot Shark Cat. “On the two main boats, Indies Trader 1 and Windward, we can accommodate up to 20 guests,” says Martin. “The normal routine is to range out from the island on day trips on one of the craft, depending on personal requirements. If it looks like we have a big swell that is going to last a few days, we may take one of the larger boats or both up to one of the further away passes and stay overnight or as long as the swell lasts.”
