Surf & Other Activities

Surf Breaks

In front of the resort's Restaurant, they have Tropical Left, a long rip-able left hand point break with waves breaking lonely day after day. There is also a right-hand point on the other side of the channel. Fast at the takeoff and then breaks slowly into deep water channel. Perfect for beginners to sit wide on the shoulder.

If you get bored and lonely of surfing a perfect left, the surf guides will take you by 4x4 to Yoyos or other local waves like Super Suck, Big Brother, Scar Reef, Little Bingin, Donuts, and a few other secret spots... Yoyos picks up a lot of swell. It’s a fun right hander good for all levels. Super Suck needs a bit more swell than other waves to break. Very good, extremely long rides!!! Hati Hati on low tide. Scar Reef  is a good left-hander. There is another smaller wave right next to it called little Bingin.

This part of Sumbawa gets good surf 12 months per year!!! The months from June to August get the biggest swells and are perfect for SuperSuck and Scar Reef blowing offshore winds all day long. The in between seasons of Sep-Nov and March-May can be the best for our front-yard Tropical left and right, with glassy conditions every morning and only light winds some afternoons. Although Christmas, January and February can also be insane!

 

Other Activities

Other activities are available for the non surfers or if you just want a break, there is a professional gym with instructor, beauty massage therapies, cooking classes, babysitters, full day boat trip excursions with fishing, spear fishing, and snorkelling gear, internet and loads of other activities to keep you busy.

You can also hire the boat any other day of the week for additional costs.

ARRIVAL and DEPARTURE dates:

All trips need to be 7 or 14 night packages (Sunday to Sunday).

Option A - Flight and Speedboat (included in package price)

The flight usually leaves from Bali on Sunday morning at 8:00am and it's a 35 minute flight to Lombok. You need to get yourself to the Domestic Terminal of Denpasar Airport at least one hour before departure. A driver will be waiting for you at Arrivals of Lombok Airport and will drive you (1 hr) in a comfortable minibus with AC to the port where the private speedboat will take you (45 min) to Sumbawa. This is not a regular public ferry, it's a private fast boat. The port in Sumbawa is only 30 minute drive to and from the Resort.  Everything is organized. Unfortunately now there is only one fast boat daily from Lombok to Sumbawa at 4.30 pm, so you will arrive at the resort around 6pm.

THE WAY BACK: On the way back you will leave Sumbawa in the morning (8am) and do the same trip back and will arrive into Bali at 19.30pm. The flight back is with Garuda and there is no problems with the surfboards as the aircrafts are bigger.

ARRIVAL and DEPARTURE dates: When travelling to Tropical Beach Resort, you may require a night before and after in Bali to ensure you connection work. Your consultant will advice of this and will have recommened hotels close to the airport for you to choose from.

 

Option B - Seaplane

If they have 6 guests per week, the easiest. quickest and most comfortable way to get from Bali to the resort is by seaplane which only takes 45 minutes. It can take maximum 6 passengers plus surfboards. The Seaplane Bali to Resort and back would cost $5000 USD per group of 6. This is $900 USD per person. If they get 6 people on the week before you, and then another 6 on the week after you, then the price would be only 450 USD per person return.

 

***Surfboards Transport

They have organized a truck each Saturday evening (day before coming to resort) for you to drop off your board bags if you wish. Meeting point in Sanur before 18.00pm. Then you will get the 9.40 AM flight with Lion Air / Wings Air on sunday morning - only a 30-minute flight.

Travelling with The Perfect Wave was so easy, from the planning/ booking stage right through to our return, every aspect was covered. The Perfect Wave kept us informed constantly right from the get go. Flights, transfers and accommodation all worked in seamlessly. We had a fantastic time at Nomads, the staff couldn't have done any more for us and the food was excellent. They had all the surf spots covered and it was no trouble to take us wherever we felt like going. The only thing we needed worry about was catching waves, which we had plenty of. Many thanks to Sylvia and the crew at The Perfect Wave for an amazing experience.

It was my first surf trip out of Oz so I trusted your advice and pics on the website. The Nomad resort Sumbawa was all time, perfect little resort and very well staffed. The all inclusive meals was a massive bonus and great to know you could eat well at anytime of the day at no extra cost... I think that all up it was great value with the drivers everyday always willing to take us to where the waves were, and had good local knowledge of tides and timing! Plus they put lime juice on your reef cuts...very caring! Having individual fruit packs and cold water on the beach after a surf was luxury. Can't wait to go back there to be honest...good job Perfect Wave!

Nomads on Sumbawa... utterly amazing. We weren't quite prepared for the luxury there, and even though we'd looked at the photos we didn't really appreciate the position and scenery either. What a place! Accom, food, staff, outlook... it was all just perfect. Within a day or two we were trying to work out how we could come back soon. They have the world's best babysitter there, Siska, and we discovered her services were included along with everything else. Despite the fact we want to keep it a secret, we won't be able to stop ourselves recommending this resort to our friends. We were exceptionally lucky in that there was only one other family there for our entire stay (which meant the kids got the most amazing attention from all the staff), and also in that a pretty solid swell hit, so I was able to surf a remote spot with just my surf guide out with me. The 1 1/2 hour trip was worth the fantastic speedy right hander that broke in an empty untouched bay, with literally no one else around. Epic!

Nomads Sumbawa was an amazing experience and well worth the effort to get there. The food was absolutely World Class and to date the best resort food I've had. The quality, the variety, the flavours and just being able to order what you want, when you want and as much as you want. The Perfect choice after surfing for 4 to 6 hours straight. The wave choice in the area is excellent. The left out the front is such a fun and workable wave, brilliant. YoYo's is an insanely good wave when it turns on. There are other breaks in the area that require big swell and look amazing but we didn't get the opportunity to try these. Transport from Bali to Sumbawa and back again is a real mission but it is worth the trek.

Nomads, what can I say! This place is sik...one of the best surf resorts I've been too ever! With a hop skip and a jump from Bali you are surfing by early afternoon at the left or right directly in front of the resort. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all superb! And I am extremely surprised how a small remote resort can get such quality food. Resort staff are all super friendly and will whip you up a chocolate iced coffee in no time (this is my personal recommendation). Surf Guide Aaron and resort manager Anthony are awesome, local knowledge is superb and they got us into perfect Supersucks and scary Scar reef 5 days straight! other great waves include Yoyos and Little Bingin! We played golf when the surf was flat or chilled around the resort and after a couple of days the thought of home is a distant memory! I will definitely be back next year with more mates and potentially girlfriends...

Hi Charlie Astin and I just wanted send a massive thank you for organizing our trip to Bali and Nomads in Sumbawa. Fortunately there was only a few people staying in the resort and we scored pretty sick Supers and Scar. We were both totally stoked with the accommodation, all the staff were super friendly and Aaron's skills in the kitchen were epic. Would definitely go there again and try and score some waves on the off-season! Anyway thanks again for hooking us up mate.

Just a quick email to let you know that the trip to Tropical resort Sumbawa was great. Having not been there for 25 years I expected big changes. I can tell you there is still nothing there. Super Sucks, Scar Reef, & Yo Yos are still raw & untouched. Tropicals Resort could not be faulted. The staff were fantastic and did everything to make your stay a memorable experience. The food was a real stand out. They have a 24 year old chef named Jai from Aus who has really addressed the hygiene aspect....I can happily say that is the first time in 13 trips to Indo that I did not get the slightest rumble. The surf was extremely testing.....you go on these trips and hope for swell....well we had too much. We were fortunate enough to have Dane Reynolds stay at Tropicals for 5 days and got to see him surf 12 foot Super Suck & Yo Yos. Thanks again for your great organization.
