Kuta Lombok is the place to be for beach hopping and surfing as well as exploring the surroundings. It is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes I have seen.

Hike Indonesia’s second highest volcano – Mount Rinjani 3726m
This is an adventure you should not miss. It is tough and challenging and the reward on top is stunning.

Senaru – Packing list Rinjani and the day before hiking Rinjani
The village Senaru is basically the base camp for all the hikers who want to conquer mount Rinjani. Check out the waterfalls.

Go surfing in Gerupuk, Lombok

Gerupuk has incredible waves for beginners and advanced surfers. Definitely worth to try. I improved a lot.

How to get to Lombok?

You can fly to Mataram international Airport. From there it is only a short ride by car (taxi or private driver) to Kuta, Lombok in the south where nice beaches and great waves to surf are waiting for you.

If you are already on Bali, you can also use the Ferry / Speed Boat to get to Lombok. We took the plane as it was cheaper and a lot faster.

How to get around on Lombok?

On Lombok most of the travelers rent a scooter to get around. It is really convenient and easy to explore the island. There is not a lot of traffic on the island. Just be careful when you drive.
