This lagoon does not dry out on low tide, so ridable all day. Nungas is on the right side of the Lakey Peak. It is a smaller waves but very long, as the current here is quite strong usually there are no surfers. Is the easiest of the 3 breaks and also the safest as is located at the beginning of a new bay about 2 kilometers long with deep and flat water. The coral is sharp, recommended to use booties.

How to get there

Transport
Car
Access
Short walk

Just 800-1000m north of Lakey Peak. 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.
