Lakey Peak Haven – Surfers Homestead
Located in the village of Hu’u, South East Sumbawa, Nusa Tenggara Barat, Indonesia, Accessible by daily flights from Denpasar, Bali. (Flying time: 1hr and 20 minutes )
Hu’u – LAKEY PEAK is renowned for some of the best waves in Indonesia.. With right hand pitching barrels, and a left hander that has many different shapes from Stand up Barrels to 200 metre long walls .. all depending on the swell direction and size. There is 5 World Class Waves on access here..
Lakey Peak Haven was designed for a more personal and private style accommodation. Built on 4000m2 block of land.. with only 8 rooms available, everyone that stays here gets to enjoy the space and open plan layout. This is your own private sanctuary / haven. Away from the tauts and motorbike rental hawkers on the beach. We have created our own little Haven which overlooks the whole area.. 180 degree ocean and surf views with amazing sunsets. Keeping the raw aspect of Sumbawa Island life and using all local materials from the hardwood shacks to the river stone pathways and walls to create the natural ambience. Beautiful tropical gardens colour the landscape and our inhouse vegetable patch and fruit trees complete the Haven. Sumbawa is like Bali was 40 years ago the local people are mainly Muslim, but with more and more transmigration from neighbouring islands like SUMBA and FLORES makes for a cultural experience. The mountainous backdrop we look straight out into the ocean and over to West Sumbawa.

Lakey Peak – Some describe it as the ‘The Machine’. An intense hollow right and lefhand peak, with the left generally being longer, , the right can fire on a proper swell direction. An A frame set up with guaranteed backdoor sections for those of you with the intent. The wave is best at 4 to 8 foot faces, any bigger it can get ugly amazing. It can be surfed on all tides, mid tide tide is optimum, lowtide hollows the barrels up. Can be enjoyed by all standards of surfers on the different swells. The reef is soft but has some sharp edges, Booties suggested.
Pipe – Serious barrel fest for those who thrive of left hand ripbowls. Only surfable on the mid to high tides. When Lakey Peak is out of control Lakey pipe can have the best stand up barrels in Indo. Only for good intermediate or experienced surfers.. Booties suggested.
Nunggas – Under 8 foot faces this wave breaks down several sections if they all connect the wave can be 200metres long. It can barrel like Gland or be as fun as Tland this wave is very under rated and that’s all I will say… Left handler .. some flat reef sections and deep holes in the reef. Booties suggested
Periscopes – the wave is like the name a periscope just hold on and enjoy the pit. Only surf it on a mid to high tide.. picks up a little less swell then Lakey Peak.. and needs a big swell to start opening up. Right hander amongst the lefts and it’s a quality one. Booties suggested
Cobblestones – Another Left and Right.. some people rave about the left hander with its sucky sections but watch out the the GREEDY ROCK.. pull off before it.. The right hander is a fun wave when 2 to 4 foot breaking in a magnificent aqua bay. Very picturesque.
Nanga Doros – Another left and right that picks up most of the swell even when its small.. A great option when Lakey Peak is looking flat (which it rarely does)
FLIGHTS: we use LION AIR which charge for all surfboards.. Rp200,000 for each surfboard for each way. The maximum size of surfboard is 7 foot 2 inches. We suggest no more then 2 surfboards in a soft boardbag.. we suggest you DON’T use COFFIN BAGS.
