Other Lombok

Visitors heading to Lombok's southern coast should visit the traditional Sasak fishing villages. Surfers will relish Lombok's Kuta Beach (far less crowded and commercialized than its namesake, Bali's Kuta Beach).


Comfort-seeking tourists can enjoy Lombok's luxury resorts, ideal for unwinding. The Sheraton is directly on a palm-fringed, white-sand beach front in Senggigi, the island's tourism epi-center. The more isolated and upscale Oberoi resort is a 45-minute drive to the north, but lacks an adjacent beach front.

Cannot afford the pricey track? Lombok has accommodations to suit all budgets.


You can bargain for the wares in the craft villages. Best bets in Lombok: pottery, basketry and weaving.


In-shape hikers climb Mt. Rinjani, an active volcano (it last erupted about five years ago). At 3726 meters (13,250 feet), Mt. Rinjani is Indonesia's second highest peak and dominates Lombok's northern landscape. The view from the top is inspiring. Plan on two or three days for this trek. Hire a professional guide.
