Highlights of Lombok

Flatter and drier than neighbouring Bali and in an almost perfectly spherical shape, Lombok is a hot tropical island with a laid back atmosphere. Dotted along the coast are fishing villages and deserted palm fringed beaches whilst the interior is covered with lush paddy fields rising up to the base of Mount Rinjani which punctures the island to an altitude of 3726m. Lombok also has a number of coral fringed islands blessed with azure blue seas, white sand beaches and varying levels of tourism infrastructure.
