Lombok Travel Guide

Lombok is known as 'Bali's quiet neighbour' and an ideal place to unwind. But it's not all about relaxing on white palm-fringed beaches and swimming in shimmering turquoise waters. The waves are awesome for surfing, colourful corals and an abundance of marine life make Lombok a diver's dream and the island’s inland impresses with lush green rice paddies, cascading waterfalls and active volcanoes.

Frequently asked questions about travelling to Lombok

How to get to Lombok?

You can fly into Bandara Internasional Lombok via Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. If you are already in Indonesia you can fly or take a speed boat from Bali. The flight from Bali only takes 25 minutes, the boat ride approximately 2.5 hours. From Jakarta it's a 2 hour flight.

When is the best time to go to Lombok?

Lombok is beautiful all year round. While there is a dry and a wet season, the wet season that runs from October through to April doesn't see too much rainfall. Don't want to push your luck? Travel to Lombok in the dry season, from May through to September.

How do you get from Bali to Lombok?

There are daily fastboats running from Bali to Lombok and they take around 30 minutes from Serangan Harbour, which is around 30 minutes from Kuta. The boats can arrange pickups from your accommodation to get you to the boats in time. 

Where can you surf in Lombok?

Lombok is a surfer's paradise and there are loads of places for beginners and pro's to get out on the waves. The favourite among experienced surfers is Desert Point (aka Bangko Bangko beach), which Aussie's named due to being isolated on the south west coast of Lombok. You've also got Kuta which is well-known for good surf points, and Gerupuk Bay about 7km east of Kuta. If in doubt, just ask a local surfer and they'll point you in the right direction.
