Lakey, Sumbawa, Indonesia
the remote Indonesian island turned out to be a total winner. The spot is famous for surfing, while the wind is blowing almost perfectly side-shore, making it great for kitesurfing too.
The two hour drive vom Bima airport to Lakey leads through villages and hills and you get already a feeling on how remote the spot is. Lakey itself is a 2 kilometer beach strip, with one surf spot after the other. Nungas is the place for kitesurfing.
Best season for kitesurfing for wind and waves (www.magicseaweed.com) is August to October, which happens to be the hottest and driest months (www.meteoblue.com) of the year.
You will find lots of places to stay on Airbnb and Google Maps while personally, we can recommend Nungas Heaven and the Rock Pool Home Stay.
We tried a couple restaurants, our favorite is Fatmah’s and right next to it the Ship Wreck.
If you are interested in wave clinics, there are two excellent options: Kite Surf Wave Clinics and Indo Kite Camp, both run by professional kite surfers.
