PostSubject: Surf & Accommodation at Safari Island ?   Sat May 28, 2011 3:03 pm

Hi Lombok Lovers,

The surf-forecast website (http://www.surf-forecast.com/breaks/Safari-Island/forecasts/latest/six_day) mentions a break called Safari Island, which I can't see mentioned in any of the other guides to surf in Lombok. There is a map on the surf-forecast website that indicates it is in the south-west of Lombok near a place called 'Labuhanpoh'. It says that it is a dry season reef-break with both lefts and rights and that is good when the wind is from the South-east but not much else. Does anyone know anything about it? How can you get there ? Is the road going out there as hair-raising as the road to Mawi? Are there any cheap accommodation options in the area or is it a place that you would visit on a day trip from Kuta?

Thanks

There are quite a few islands in that area but Safari Island is not the local name so it is hard to know which island you are referring to. Maybe you could post on one of the surf forums in the Indonesia section???

hi richardc.

Labuan Po is \not far from where i live in the South west called Sekotong.
There is a main road all the way from Mataram to Labuan Po. Labuan Po is only 15 or so kilometers from Banko Banko.
There are a few basic accommodation options at Labuan Po but not alot. It will take you about 2 or 3 hrs by car from Kuta,
So your best bet is leave early in the morning and stay a day or 2 at Labuan Po.
If i can help you anymore just let me know.
cheers
