LOMBOK ISLAND – INFORMATION:
Are you tired of Bali’s tourist crowds, traffic and never ending parties?
Lombok Island offers you the perfect break out and with this getaway just three hours away by speedboat, it’s quite amazing that only a few of those who visit Bali actually make it here.
This island is undoubtedly one of the most underestimated pearls of the Lesser Sunda Island Archipelago. What can you expect? Definitely less people, very friendly islanders, mind-blowing landscapes dominated by high cliffs, volcanoes and jungle, perfect waves, good wind (for kiters) and pristine beaches. Hit the southern coast to bask on golden sand and swim in crystal waters, or head east and get lost in tribal villages, or go north to climb Mt. Rinjani (3726 meters) – one of the most beautiful volcanoes in Indonesia.
Lombok Island lies east of the Wallace Line, which marks the bio-geographical border between Asia and Australia. The flora and fauna of Bali is still typical of South East Asia whereas on Lombok and other islands to the east, you will be able to see animals and plants more commonly seen in Australia. Heading to Lombok is like crossing a BIG border.
