How to get there

Transport
Car
Access
No information

1h flight from Bali to Bima, Sumbawa. Transfer around 2.5 hrs to Lakey Peak. 100km south from Bima. Lakey Peak, is one of the most famous surfing spot in the island and is closed to the city of Hu Hu. Since there is no more ferry the best way to get there is by plane using the new daily Merpati flight, a 45 minutes trip using a jet plane that can carry about 70 passenger, so no more problems for the equipment. From the airport to the location is another 2 hours driving. In Lakey peak there are 4-5 little hotels for surfer.
