Lakey Peak Surfing

Lakey Peak is an off-the-beaten-path beach hideaway, with an incredibly chilled local surf community. With a wide range of surf breaks, it's well-suited for novice to pro surfers. The vibe here is super friendly, and it's a perfect place to spend a day or two after a trek up nearby Mt Tambora.

Helpful Questions from Other Travellers

Q
How do I get there?
A
The closest airport to Lakey Peak is Bima airport in Sumbawa. From the airport you will need to hire a taxi to take you to your hotel in Lakey Peak, which is approx 1.5 to 2 hours' drive away. At the moment the taxis are very pricey (IDR 800,000, approx USD 56) as the pricing is strictly enforced by the united taxi driver front. No outside arrangments are allowed, as outside drivers will be intimidated to leave. To minimise your costs, look out for fellow passengers who might be headed in the same direction so that you can split the costs.
Q
Do I need to go with a guide?
A
If you are a seasoned surfer, you can most likely handle this on your own. However, if you are just starting out or even if you are a strong intermediate surfer, it is highly advisable to go with a guide. A local surfer guide will introduce you to the beach and reef breaks, show you where to find the best barrel waves and can also teach you some new tricks. If you need a board, the guide will also help you pick one out.
Q
Do I need to train up?
A
You'll need to be in good physical shape in order to paddle out to the surf break and to be able to stay out in the water for several hours at the time, while being pummelled by the waves. You should also be a confident and strong swimmer. This spot is ideal for people who are looking to take their surfing game to the next level. If you already had a few weeks of practice in Bali or Kuta Lombok and would like to continue improving this is the place to be. But don't be turned off if you are just starting out - your guide will make you feel comfortable in more suitable surf spots around the area (e.g. the Nungas surf spot).
Q
What's the best time to go?
A
The best months to visit are March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October
We recommend the above period because you would have if you can, you should plan a trip anytime between march and october. april through september is main surfing season. expect consistent, back-to-back swells, and lots of surfers if you go during this time! to avoid the crowds, you may want to do during march to april, or september to october - even though the swells are less consistent then, the winds are favourable in the early morning and evening, making these hours great for surfing. if you are travelling between november to february, this is the off-season for surfing. this means less swell and fewer surfers. if you are looking to learn, this could be a good time to get acquainted with the water and basic skills, though the waves could be a bit hit-and-miss during this time.
Q
Any tips for what to do in the area?
A
Lakey Peak may appear to have only one purpose, but it has a few other charming highlights. For a small town, it has quite a few good options for food and even great espresso coffee! Try Wamen's Warung for delicious ceviche and nasi campur. For coffee make your way to Fatma's, and while you're there, try their tuna burger and chicken satay with peanut sauce. Good quality accommodation is still scarce in Lakey Peak, but we found a couple of great places that were charming and clean. We liked 3 Waves, that is owned by Alex who came from Australia and fell in love with Lakey Peak more than 7 years ago. We also liked Lakey Rockpool Villa, that is owned by Ali, a local. Ali also has a great bar for sunset watching with cold Bintang beers and the best spring rolls. Also, check out Pebble Beach (just a 10 minute motor scooter ride) where you can get a chance to see a very different beach front as well as people gathering and drying seaweed (which is collected and used in cosmetics).
