THE ACTIVITIES

Surf

Surfing Nusa Tenggara Archipelago

You will have the luck to be taken to the best surf in the area, depending on weather and surf conditions. You will surf some of the best surf spots in Lembongan, Lombok, Sumbawa: Nusa Lembongan (Shipwreck, Laceration, Playground), Lombok (Desert Point) and Sumbawa (Scar Reef, Supersuck, Yoyos), but aswell all those uncrowded secret spots along the South Lombok coast, where none of the other boats can go to.

Surfing Bali

Bali has over 20 top-quality breaks on the Southwest and Southeast coasts of the island and around the Bukit Peninsula. Some of these breaks like Padang Padang and Uluwatu are world class barrelling reef breaks.

 

Others range from good fun, like the beach breaks around Kuta and Sanur, to serious tubular waves. Bali gets the full force of southern ocean swells directly from the Antarctic, its south-west and south-east coasts being littered with surf spots.

 

The dry winter months (June-Sept) are preferred for their perfect surf conditions. However, this means that these are also the most crowded times. The Monsoon, or wet season (Oct-May) still offer good waves. Bali, unlike other areas of Indonesia where all spots are heavy reef breaks for experienced surfers, actually has a lot of beach breaks accessible to all.

Surf Spots Nusa Lembongan

SHIPWRECKS:

The most famous and most surfed of all the waves on Nusa Lembongan, this right produces a good wall for maneuvers and, depending on the tide, good tubes. Best at medium tide with a 4 to 6 foot swell, but can get bigger on a good day.
