What's the surf like?
As with other areas of Indonesia, the best surf season in this area occurs between the months of April and October but there are plenty of breaks to tempt you all year round. These breaks work well when the winds and swell change direction.
The best known surf break in Lombok is Desert Point, but there are plenty of other options for all standard of surfers with nine major surfing destinations located all around the Lombok coast. Depending on wind and swell directions.
Sumbawa surf is best between April and September, with Lakey's Beach being a haven for surfers. Lakey Peak and Periscopes are just two of the many quality waves in this region. This area is also known to have great waves in the off season as the winds can turn off shore in some parts producing good, fun conditions.
The area caters for not only the surfer on a boat charter, but there are also some fantastic accommodation and land packages available for either Lombok or Sumbawa.
