Lombok island review
To the east of its famous Indonesian sibling of Bali lies Lombok – a large island that is becoming more and more popular with tourists. That’s mostly thanks to the 3 Gili Islands, which lie off the north-west coast. However, the rest of Lombok island remains largely uncharted by the crazy throngs. It provides many glittering examples of secret islands, bays, and beaches only available to those in the know.
There is nothing a holiday traveler is looking for that they will not find in Lombok island. The area offers the kind of multiple personalities that ensures it suits different forms of travelers. The people over here are as amiable as can be, and they bring a mix of vibrant cultures to the table. Blessed with its proximity to the trio of the Gili islands, Lombok shines in the way by offering developed settlements sandwiched between natural landscapes.
With its colorful Sasak culture, incredible dive spots, pink beaches, giant tree forests, some of the best surfing in the world at Desert Point, astonishing waterfalls, and the mysterious, active volcano, Mount Rinjani, a trip to Lombok promises an authentic, island paradise experience. You might not have a bucket list to return home with by the time Lombok is done with you.
Due to its unique location on the Indonesian landscape, Lombok is blessed with proximity to a lot of other islands. Small or big, these other islands retain an identity of their own and bring more diversity to your trip. Fortunately, Lombok finds a home near the famed trio of Gili islands that add much to its popularity. Beyond that, you also get to explore the likes of the fourteen of South Gilis and the trio of Nusa islands – all promising that pure, virgin, uncharted vibe! Finally, the Land of the Gods is within easy reach too – Bali vacation can never be overrated.
