Scuba & Snorkeling · Beaches · Shark Diving
An island similar in size to neighboring Bali, Lombok offers a more untouched landscape with a powerful feeling of seclusion, plus oceanic plant and animal life. Balancing backpacker and resort-goer interests, the island blends beach resorts with rugged, volcanic landscapes, offering sunbathing and hiking opportunities aplenty. The region sports prime wave action, which many guests come for. The lowlands region of the island features fields and forests where rice, soybeans, coffee, coconuts, and bananas are cultivated.
