A usual stop for surf-charter boats, this scenic bay has two decent surf spots: a short, punchy right on the bay’s west side and a longer, more perfect (and more hollow) left on the east side. Both are rather mediocre when compared to Desert Point, but fun nonetheless for the average surfer. South-southeast cyclone swells are crucial for these reefs to break, which blow offshore during the wet season’s westerly trades.
Belongas in South Lombok is a sheltered reef break that has reasonably consistent surf. Nov-April (Wet Season) provides favoured time of year for waves. The best wind direction is from the north northwest. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south southwest. There are left and right breaking reefs. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days.
The best time of year for surfing Belongas with consistent clean waves (rideable swell with light / offshore winds) is during Summer and most often the month of January.
