Lombok

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.

Weather in Lombok

October - March,
April - September
30°C

Lombok and Sumbawa in Indonesia has a tropical climate being just located below the equator. Temperatures average around 30'C all year round.

The wet season occurs October to March, and as with all tropical climates the humidity at this time can get quite high. The dry season occurs from April to September, with less humid conditions and sunnier weather. This is usually the most popular time to travel to Indonesia for those long hot and sunny days but as there are waves all year round in Lombok and Sumbawa the time of season you go is really up to you.

Most rainfall throughout the islands will occur during the wet season, but downpours are typical and can occur at anytime, usually not lasting too long.
