Whales and Waves, in West Sumbawa is a brand new resort, unlike anything else.
This very comfortable, beachfront property is situated on a spacious coconut plantation.
Escape amongst untouched natural landscape boasting long, pristine white sandy bays, lush green forests and stunning views of uninhabited islands and breath-taking sunsets, with Lombok’s Mount Rinjani as a background.
This is the place ...
Bali and Lomboks's fabled reefs and booming beach breaks are in season between April and October when swell swinging up from the Roaring 40s and Howling 50s march south-west across the Indian Ocean and the trade winds blow from the south-east. Even during the off season when the trade winds switch to west there are still classic waves to be had. Sea and air temperatures remain steady at around 28Â°C or 82Â°F. Pioneered in 1936, by Bob Koke, a Californian from Hawaii and later by the likes of Jerry Lopez. Perfection like this has a price, paid in the form of crowding, excess development coupled with littered and polluted beaches around the main centres such as Kuta. Famous breaks like Uluwatu always have a crowd but for the surfer prepared to travel adventure and uncrowded waves await.
Surfer friendly places to stay near some great surf spots. Including camp-sites, hostels, hotels, B&Bs and surf lodges.
