Lombok is just across the Lombok Straight from Bali, a much-adored island frequented by travellers from around the world. While Lombok may not get as much press as its neighbour, it has plenty to offer visitors. The Gunung Rinjani volcano, which has hot springs and a crater lake at the summit, crystal clear water at Kuta Beach, and the Keambu waterfall are just some of nature’s bounty located on Lombok. Whether you are in the mood for adventure travel, a romantic getaway, or a quiet solo holiday, this Indonesian island welcomes you.
Prepare to reach a new level of leisure when spend your holiday in Lombok. If hanging out near the water is your idea of a good time, visiting Mawun Beach is a must. With its glistening sand and stunning surroundings, one look around this paradise might convince you that you’re living in a postcard. Meanwhile, surfers enjoy paddling out at nearby Senggigi Beach to sample some of the locals’ favourite breaks. Further south, the towns of Kuta Beach and Banko Banko are also considered ideal areas to catch killer waves. And if the ocean water isn’t warm enough for your tastes, take your towel over to Segara Anak Lake. This body of water is surrounded by naturally occurring hot springs that are certain to make your worries disappear.
As the second largest volcano in all of Indonesia, Mount Rinjani is another top destination in Lombok. A trek to the top of this mountain might take you a while, but the awe-inspiring views afforded with every step might make you wish the climb would never end. If you’re feeling especially ambitious, watch the sun rise from the summit for an indescribable experience.
Lombok’s tropical climate means that the island only experiences two seasons each year, rather than four. The wet season here, which stretches from October to April, is not nearly as rainy as in nearby Bali. And while the May-to-September dry season is prime time for tourists to visit Lombok, many travellers still visit the island during wetter weather. Temperatures in Lombok are quite comfortable and consistent from season to season, hovering between 26 and 29 degrees Celsius at almost any time of the year. This holds true for all spots around sea-level, while the areas of higher altitude are likely to experience noticeably cooler climes.
Lombok hotels represent the relaxing island holiday that travellers are meant to experience here. Waterfront accommodation with swimming pools, sprawling grounds, and outdoor loungers are commonplace. Yet, backpackers and travellers on a budget can still find a place to stay within their budget. From villas and upscale resorts to independent boutique hotels, you can find Lombok accommodation that suits your needs right here on Expedia.com.au today.
You can arrive in Lombok via Lombok International Airport (LOP), or by using inter-island ferries. In fact, ferry shuttles between Bali and Lombok run every 90 minutes around the clock.
Lombok has two primary seasons: dry and wet. The wet season begins in October and lasts until about March. The rainiest month is often November. The dry season brings easterly winds and lower humidity. The island is much drier than Bali in general.
Lombok is an ideal destination for divers, surfers, and hikers. And yet, it can still appeal to travellers attracted by the quiet tranquillity afforded by an ancient temple.
