Near the northwest corner of Lombok the Gili Islands offer the perfect island lifestyle with no traffic or crowds. Known as the turtle capital of the world, snorkelling and marine life exploration is one of the major attractions. Take a day or night dive at ‘Shark Point’, watch the sunsets over Mt Agung volcano, or stay at a luxury private villa and escape reality completely. Idyllic coral islands, the Gili Islands are a hidden gem of the many Indonesian islands.
Mount Rinjani National Park
At 3,726m tall, Mount Rinjani is the second highest peak in Indonesia and a truly marvellous sight to view and explore. An active volcano lies in a large crater lake and hot springs are located north of the lake. While serious trekkers can take on Mount Rinjani (quite a significant feat), less adventurous tourists can explore the three famous caves, popular for meditation. Discover the hot springs and taste the unique local strawberry plant.
Senggigi Beach is one of the more highly-developed tourist areas of Lombok and offers fine dining, nightlife and safe beaches. Go wind surfing, sea kayaking or parasailing along this quiet stretch of coast. Take a beautiful scenic walk to the historic Batu Bolong Temple, a Hindu temple perfect for viewing the stunning sunsets across Lombok. Go to local institution ‘Happy Café’ for a meal and nightly live entertainment.
