What is a key attraction in Lombok?
Easily accessible by boat, the neighbouring Gili islands – Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air – offer pristine sands and clear waters that are perfect for snorkelling and diving.
What are some of the best eats in Lombok?
At popular diner Warung Menega (6 Jln Raya Senggigi), seafood is barbecued over coconut husks instead of charcoal, making it taste sweeter and more delicious.
What do you think is the island’s best-kept secret?
Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep are two beautiful waterfalls in North Lombok. You can trek from one to the other in about 40 minutes. Don proper footwear, though, as the journey involves slippery steps and stream crossings.
