An introduction to Lombok

Because Lombok has a very different history to many other islands in Indonesia, it has its own pace and style. Offering a stunning tropical climate with temperatures between 21 and 30 degrees Celsius all year round, it is the ideal climate for simply relaxing and enjoying a tropical island paradise. Beautiful coral sand beaches ranging in colour from pure white to almost black (the black beaches are volcanic sands) ring the island and its many bays and coves, providing a delight for anyone who likes snorkelling, with numerous coral reefs teeming with marine life. Lombok has a population of around 2.5 million, made up of mainly Balinese, Arabian, Chinese and Javanese, with small mixes of other races represented as well. There are still remnants of past visitors to the island visible in the historic artefacts found scattered around Lombok with coins from ancient Chinese dynasties regularly found adorning Lombok’s own cultural relics. Lombok offers not just great snorkelling, but also exceptional surfing, and some it is surprisingly close to the main tourist area of Senggigi, which is located to the west of the island.  Senggigi point is a very popular spot when the swell comes in from the south-west, but the break is so wide there is little need to jostle for that perfect wave. The people of Lombok are exceedingly friendly and helpful, and English is becoming spoken more as increasing numbers of international guests arrive each year.
