Where can I find the best surf breaks?
The west side of Sumbawa Island has some of the best surf breaks in the world, from Tropical and Yo-Yo’s to Scar Reef and Super Suck. Out of all these great options, Yo-Yo’s is the closest to Kirana Retreat; it’s only a 5-minute walk down the road! This spot offers world-class waves that are consistent day in and day out. If you’re looking for something different, Tropical (with medium sized swell) or Super Suck (named for its thick left hand wave) are both about a 5 minute scooter ride away. Lastly, if you’re feeling adventurous, Scar reef is perfect for goofy footed surfers and is 15 minutes by scooter.
