There are a number of reasons to visit Lombok which is really exciting to visit. There are some breathtaking sites to visit over there and above all the alluring beauty of the Kuta, beaches are really very soothing to witness first hand. So this blog generally revels earth shaking places to visit in Lombok.

The Baby Bali

Located in the West Nusa Tenggara, Lombok can also be called as a baby Bali province. It is home to about 4.5 million approximately and is well known for the distinct and ethnic way of life and cuisine.

Lombok is not one of your generic rush hour countries. In fact, the only place in Lombok where you may find a crowd is an international airport. Overall, it is also a very technologically advanced country where people can prosper and live in harmony. So basically there are 7 reasons why people should visit Lombok.

1. Revel in the uninhabited Mawun Beach

The beaches are the major sight of attraction over here and people generally come to experience the sunny tans and lemonades in this area. In fact, there has been a drastic increase in the visitation from other countries by about 14%, because of the Australian surfers gathering around in this region. The vibrant and iridescent colors of the water is an incredible sight to behold.

2. Frolick with little children along Kuta Beach

The children over here are really adventurous and brave. They try to follow around the shore carrying and searching sea creatures that generally entice them to the bone. So do visit Kuta Beach because even your kid will blend in the environment pretty easily.

3. Live in huts made from buffalo dung

The use of bamboo and buffalo dung is highly demanding in this village. With a dash of primordial intelligence, they believe that these two ingredients keep the house from sneaky little termites to dilapidate your house. The bamboo keeps the interior cool. There are two levels within the hut- one is for men and the other is a kitchen for the women.

4. Relish Kangkong salad dressed in belachan

The kangkong rivalry in Lombok is apparently an incredibIe one. The Lombok kangkong are much crunchier than the ones in Java. The belachan over here is also finger licking food which is also the staple food of Lombok.

5. Drive up the Malimbu cliff for a tranquil, bucolic sunset

The breathtaking view from the top of the cliff is also a magnificent sight to behold and it is something that can make you gaze upon the view for hours and hours straight. The blue stretches of the water from the Malibu cliff is definitely a sight for the sore eye. It almost looks like an elegant utopia.

6. Snorkel with Nemo and marvel at orange Patricks

Another one of the rides over here is the one to the three islands of Gili Nanggu. It is located 50 km away from Mataram City. You can board a ferry from the Lembar Harbour and set on a voyage to the three islands namely – Gili Tangkong, Gili Kedis, and Gili Sudak. The barbecued fishes in Gili Tangkong are somewhat of a delicacy and it is straight up delicious.

7. Take 315 steps to Sendang Gile

The visit to Sendang Gile was also one of the most adventurous trips ever. We couldn’t get to climb the Mount Rinjani which is the second largest active volcano in Indonesia. But even these 20 mins of Sendang Gile trekking were worthier than anything else. You could even cannonball in the waterfall down below or take a few sips from it to relinquish 10 years of your life back. 


These are some of the most popular reasons that can attract you to visit
Indonesia islands in future and if you do not have much idea about the worth visiting places.
