Accommodation

Nasu Surf Bungalows is the perfect land-based surf camp for anyone looking for world-class waves, comfortable accommodation, and quality food for a reasonable price. The bungalows are located at Nasu Surf Bungalows' own private beach, set right in the heart of West Sumbawa's world-renowned surf breaks. With a left and right break straight out the front and boat on standby ready to take you to surrounding breaks, finding the wave of the day is easy. Nasu Surf Bungalows caters for a maximum of eight guests at a time which gives you a better experience and reduces the number of surfers in the water.

Program

Once you rise in the morning, make your way into the restaurant where coffee, tea, and all-you-can-eat breakfast is waiting for you. Over breakfast, you can watch the right and left breaks out the front and discuss the best surfing options for the day ahead. Nasu Surf Bungalows' left and right waves both need a high tide to make it really turn on so if it’s not working or you’d just like to surf one of the many other world class waves in the area, then Nasu Surf Bungalows will pack the boat and head out for the day. Some of the waves close by are phantoms, little Bingin, scar reef, donuts, playgrounds, supersucks, yo-yos, and tropicals along with a bunch of other secret spots.

While you hunt for the best waves you’ll notice West Sumbawa’s amazing coastline where the mountains touch the sea. This awesome coastline means other traveling surfers with a car or motorbike can find it very time-consuming traveling over the mountains just to check each spot to eventually find a break with a 20-minute paddle out, but not the case in Nasu Surf Bungalows' boat with an easy 40-minute ride to the southern bay named Tropicals and the closest (scar reef) less than 10 minutes from Nasu Surf Bungalows. Nasu Surf Bungalows will drop you straight into the lineup.

The boat is an Indonesian-style sampan and seats up to 10 people. With open walls and a roof for sun protection, it’s the perfect boat for photography. If you’re after high-quality photos of your trip, a professional local photographer with the latest camera gear can be arranged to come along and shoot every wave of your trip. If you’re feeling burned out while surfing, paddle back to the boat for a snack and drink, reapply sunscreen and get back out there. There is no time schedule when staying with Nasu Surf Bungalows. They go at your pace, surf where you want, and serve meals when you’re hungry.

March to September is generally considered the “surf season” in West Sumbawa with offshore winds and blue skies almost every day. It's not uncommon to score weeks on end of perfect waves. Many people tend to think that the wet season (October to February) doesn’t provide any waves, however, this is not true. With fewer people around and Nasu Surf Bungalows' knowledge of the area's waves, it’s very possible for you to be rewarded with uncrowded perfection during these months.

Location

Nasu Surf Bungalows nestled in a valley with majestic mountains to the back and the Indian Ocean at your front door, which means apart from the occasional visiting Indonesian fishing boat it’s extremely rare to see anyone else apart from your travel companions on the beach. When you wake up in the morning at Nasu Surf Bungalows, the first thing you notice is the silence, broken only by jungle sounds like monkeys, birds, and crashing waves. There’s no motorbikes, trucks, roosters, or noise of a nearby marketplace to annoy you, just the sounds of nature.

There are no roads into Nasu and the only access is by boat so you won’t be bothered by hagglers trying to sell you a tee-shirt nor will you have to put up with pollution and traffic noise. Nasu Surf Bungalows is totally off the grid and isolated from the hassles that traveling can sometimes throw at you. While it feels like you’re a million miles from anywhere, Nasu Surf Bungalows is actually just a 10-minute boat ride to civilization so you can enjoy isolation with the comfort of knowing you’re not far from hospitals, banks, and convenience stores. Nasu Surf Bungalows is totally off the grid and use solar power and pure natural spring water.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Lombok International Airport (LOP). Transfer from and to this airport is available upon request.

If you fly into Lombok International Airport (LOP) and have booked a package with Nasu Surf Bungalows, for only 35 AUD for the car and driver (seats up to six) and 16 AUD per person for the ferry, Nasu Surf Bungalows can arrange a car to be waiting for you to get you to Nasu Surf Bungalows without any of the headaches. So, don’t stress about getting there, they’ll arrange everything to get you from the airport to your bungalow without any haggling or hassles.

Nasu Surf Bungalows' driver will take you across Lombok (approximately two hours in an air-con car). He will then escort you onto the fast boat which will take you across the channel to Sumbawa (one to two hours ride in air-con). When you arrive in Benete Harbor, Sumbawa, Nasu Surf Bungalows will be waiting to pick you up and take you to your bungalow (10 minutes).

Sumbawa has two main domestic airports, one is Sultan Muhammad Kaharuddin III Airport (SWQ) in Sumbawa Besar which is about three hours' drive from Nasu Surf Bungalows, the other is Sultan Muhammad Salahudin Airport (BMU) in Bima, from there it can take up to six hours in a car to reach Nasu Surf Bungalows. These routes are not recommended as flights are often delayed or canceled and traffic on the road can be slow.

Arrival by ferry/boat

If you’re not in a hurry to reach Nasu Surf Bungalows and want to take in the sights then you can take a bus, car, or motorcycle from Bali. Ferries operate 24/7 between Bali-Lombok and Lombok-Sumbawa. These ferries are “roll on-roll off” so you can take your vehicle all the way from Bali to Sumbawa and back again. This method of travel is time-consuming (up to 24 hours) but for people with time on their hands, it’s a great way to see more of Indonesia.
