"The little sister of Bali ?" Top 5 Page for this destination Lombok by cadzand

Lombok Travel Guide: 430 reviews and 1,173 photos

Although Lombok is the neighbour of Bali, it is quite different.
Lombok is a small island around 80 x 80 square km. Dominated by the Rinjani peak, it's north-eastern part is dry. Good land for farming is only on the west coast and in central Lombok, while other areas are hilly and dry. The southern part near the beach is greatly hilly and has nice clean sandy beaches.
The Sasak who make 90 % of the total population of Lombok are all Moslem, while Balinese who mostly live on West-Lombok esp. in the capitol of Mataram are Hindu.
Senggigi, just west of Mataram city, is the most developed area of Lombok, especially from tourism. It has many accomodations from simple to 5* hotels located along a fine sandy beach. Various shops and restaurants are along the main road of Senggigi beach.

    Love your photos and great tips. I'm going to Indonesia hopefully next year. So this particular island of Lombok, it's a diving island, I believe?

    Nice page on Lombok. Though Indonesia is no longer on my list, Bali and Lombok are still in my dreams.

    Beautiful island and pictures! I know the tree in your pic, but cannot remember its name, it is bugging me now too! A massage on the beach sounds like an excellent idea! Great page.

    Oh yes, the Cook Islands were great - but I think Bali/Lombok will do too...! :o)
