About Padangbai

Rare pointbreak set-up that needs a minor miracle to break well. Big S swells will wrap into the natural harbour around a headland and peel down the rocky reef for up to 150m at mid tides. Problem is it needs W winds so you are unlikely to get the maxing swell in off-season. Long drive from the Bukit to look for protection, but it’s also the port for the Lombok ferry. Harbour water quality is rank from sewage and shipping.
