Surf Lakey Peak Haven

Sumbawa is renowned for some of the best waves in Indonesia. Whether you’re looking for stand-up barrels or long rippable walls, this region has the best of everything, depending on the conditions. 

The peak surf season extends from May through to August, yet Sumbawa offers consistent waves throughout the year. Lakey Peak Haven is strategically located near 5 world class waves, including the renowned Lakey Peak, Lakey Pipe, and Periscopes. Within a 20-minute radius of Lakey Peak Haven, surfers have access to a total of 9 waves, such as Nunggas, Cobblestones, and Nunga Doro’s. 

Lakey Pipe and Lakey Peak are visible from the swimming pool and deck area, accessible by a short 700m walk. Alternatively, find waves by car or boat with your local surf guide and photographer, included in your stay as a surfer.  

 

Lakey Peak

Sometimes described as ‘The Machine’, Lakey Peak is an intense, hollow left and right-hand peak. The left-hander is usually longer, however, the right can be epic in the correct swell direction. It has an a-frame set up with a guaranteed backdoor section if you’re committed. 

Lakey Peak is best surfed between 4 to 8 ft, but any bigger it can get ugly, but amazing. It can be surfed on all tides, but mid-tide is optimal. Low tide offers up an extremely hollow barrel. Depending on the conditions, it can be suitable for surfers of various abilities. Although the reef is soft, it has sharp edges, so booties are recommended. 

Lakey Pipe

If you love barrels, look no further than Lakey Pipe. It’s a barrel-fest for anyone who loves a left-hand rip-bowl, but it’s only surfable on mid to high tides. When Lakey Peak is too big, Lakey Pipe offers the best stand-up barrels in Indonesia. This wave is only suited to intermediate or experienced surfers. Booties are recommended. 

Nunggas

Some days Nunggas can barrel like G-Land, while other days it can be as fun as T-Land. A severely underrated left-hander, it breaks in several sections under 8 ft, but if they connect, surfers can expect a 200 m ride. Booties recommended. 

Periscopes

As its name suggests, surfers just need to hold on and enjoy the ride. This barreling right-hander can only be surfed on mid to high tide. It picks up less swell than Lakey Peak and needs a big swell to open up. Booties recommended. 

Cobblestones

Another left and right-hander in the area, the left can be super sucky, but watch out for the greedy rock, or pull off before you hit it! The right-hander is fun between 2 and 4 ft, breaking into a picture-perfect bay. 

Nanga Doros

Nanga Doros is a left and right-hand wave that picks up plenty of swell even when it’s small. If Lakey Peak is flat (rarely), Nanga Doros is a great option. 

Non-Surf Activities

Lakey Peak Haven offers various activities suitable for surfers and non-surfers. Guests can unwind by the pool, enjoy TV, or engage in sports like volleyball, badminton, basketball, and darts. For those interested in astronomy, a telescope is available for stargazing. 

Stand-up paddleboarding and snorkeling equipment are on hand to explore the vibrant marine life around Lakey Peak Haven. Fishing expeditions can also be arranged, though guests are advised to bring their own fishing gear and lures. To discover the local area’s natural landscapes and historical sites, guided tours can be organised.  

For the internet, guests can purchase local sim cards that provide access to local services.
