Sumbawa, Indonesia

I’d been in Bali for almost a year and really wanted to go somewhere that was untouched by tourism and Sumbawa was perfect. There is so much culture there, I loved it.

We rented motorbikes to look for some secret waves some local friends told us about. We drove two hours to get there, got lost several times, but when we finally came out at the end of a dirt track, they were the most perfect righthand waves we’d ever seen.

It’s a bit of a mission to get there so I would definitely recommend taking a plane followed by a quick ferry ride rather than driving and taking the longer ferry.

The people make Sumbawa so special. The locals don’t see many tourists so they are so much more accommodating and excited to get to know you. They just want to talk to you and hear about all your experiences.
