The uniqueness of Lakey Beach in Dompu District, West Nusa Tenggara compared to other surf spots elsewhere because of its left-handed waves.
The term left-handed wave because it has the direction of waves sweep to the left not to the right as generally other beaches. This uniqueness is also supported by the beauty of beaches that are well known in tourists, especially among surf or surf enthusiasts.
In addition, the sea breeze is fairly high in the region also supports surfing, wind surfing, or kite surfing. Lakey Beach has a tower located at the end of the beach, so that photographers can capture images through the tower. In the race season, the tower is used by judges to assess the participants of the surfing competitions coming from different countries.
Lakey Beach is a spot for sunset and sunrise, because the location of the sunset is on the left of the beach and sunrise is on the right beach. I recommend for photography lovers to stay overnight here, because you can capture sunset and sunrise at once.
Lakey Surf Sport
Lakey Beach has 5 types of waves mentioned by the surf, namely Lakey Peak, Lakey Pipe, Cobble Stones, Lakey Pipe, and Periscope. The most challenging and great type to surf is Lakey Peak because it presents the challenge of the waves from the left and right. On the left is a long tunnel, while on the right is a perfect wave roll for surfing.
January to November is the best time to visit this beach, especially the peak of the visit occurred in April-May. At these moments, this beach will be visited approximately 300 foreign tourists who spend up to weeks or even months stay there for surfing.
The beauty of nature and the waves are challenging in Lakey Beach is very interesting to visit the surfers and also the photographer. Other activities that can be done on the beach which is taken about 30 minutes to 1 hour from the city of Dompu is of course photographing, surfing (surfing), wind surfing, or kite surfing
