Sumbawa has world-class waves on both the South-West coast and the South-Central coast. The potential for new discoveries in other parts of the island is already proving itself with a new "secret right" Resort opening in 2018. Although locals at the surf camps speak a little English, this is one island where it really helps to learn some of the Indonesian language - and there's no better book to guide you than "Indo Surf & Lingo"

Our #1 Recommendation for Sumbawa:
It's definitely worth the $5 a day for Travel Insurance to avoid having to pay $250,000 for an emergency flight if you get injured on the sharp coral reefs or crazy ocean crossings.
