SURFING

Off the southern end of the island is a right hand break called Secrets, where the local boys are more than welcoming to travelling surfers. The spot itself is a little fickle, but when it starts breaking it really cranks and produces flawless barrels which for intermediate / advanced standard surfers can be exhilarating. Fast waves breaking over shallow coral make for an adrenaline packed surf. Surf boards can be rented locally.

DAY TRIPS TO LOMBOK
