    Lakey Beach, the Best Surfing Spot in the World - Dompu

    Lakey Beach is located in Hu'u Village, Dompu Regency, in the province of West Nusa Tenggara on the east coast of Sumbawa Island. Lakey Beach is a long, wide, palm-lined, white-sand stretch of beach fronted by reef. Much of the bottom is rocky, but farther up the beach it's sandy and good for swimming. It is already well known among the world’s surfers community. Currently the majority of tourists come from Australia, South America, the United States and others. Most surfers who have ventured out here said that Lakey is one of the best surfing spots in the world. They come here for the waves which come in four different kinds with different difficult level.

    - Nangas : flat kind of waves
    - Lakey Peak: the most challenging kind forming big tunnel on the left and perfect furl wave to surf on the right.
    - Lakey Pipe: like the name, pipe. Another place you can find this kind of wave is in Hawaii.
    - Periscope: this kind of wave is rolling like a periscope, the surfers will feel like in a periscope while surfing and bending.

    Something unique of this beach is that the waves come from to the left. That’s why this beach is also known as Lefty Beach. The average size of the wave is 1.5 to 3 metres high with 4 metres deep. Perhaps those are reasons why this beach is one of favorites of world surfers. The high season is in April-May when about 300 tourist stay here a day.

    From Sultan Muhammad Salahuddin, Bima you can rent a vehicle starting from IDR 600,000 or you can use public transportation heading to Ginte bus station in Dompu for about IDR 50.000. At Ginte bus station you need to continue with motorized pedicab to Lakey beach for two hours for about IDR 200,000-300,000. Homestay and guesthouses at Lakey beach start at R 100,000 per night.
