Lombok is an Indonesian island situated between Bali to the west and West Nusa Tenggara to the east.
Although often overlooked due to the popular island next door, Lombok’s exquisite beaches, fascinating landmarks, including the country’s second highest mountain, and top quality surf easily rival those found in Bali. Also, with less commercially developed tourist areas, it offers a far more peaceful experience, too.
The Gili Islands lying just off Lombok’s northwest coast are a must visit. They have a uniquely laid-back atmosphere and a vibrant nightlife, with lovely beaches and fantastic snorkelling spots as well.
Travelling by ferry is the most convenient way to explore the islands in the Indonesian archipelago. From Lombok’s west coast, there are numerous routes across the Lombok Strait to Bali.
Bali is one of the most popular and well-known island destinations in the world, situated between Java and Lombok in Indonesia.
‘The Island of the Gods’, with its ten thousand temples and beautifully varied landscape, is a dream destination for anyone from budgeting backpackers to the mega-wealthy. For a relatively small landmass, there are countless things to see, places to visit and backdrops to marvel at. Known for world-class surfing, exquisite beaches and luxury resorts, Bali is also characterised by forested mountains, idyllic offshore islets and picturesque rice fields. Two of the main towns are Kuta, in the south, which was one of the first tourist hubs, offering a buzzing nightlife, and Ubud, the cultural centre of Bali, acting as a slow-paced, spiritual retreat.
Ferry travel is widespread in Indonesia, and it’s easy to reach Bali from numerous locations, with regular routes from some of the country’s most visited locations including Lombok and the Gili Islands.
