Lombok has a great variety of waves that work on all swell and wind conditions. It's right next to Bali, yet far less crowded. The book tells you where to stay cheaply close to the best fun waves, and where to go when the swell gets up and you're ready to tackle hollow overhead barrels. Lombok's Gili Islands offer a peaceful escape for a bit of snorkelling and partying too.
Tracks magazine readers voted Lombok's Desert Point "The Best Wave in the World", but it is difficult to get to, so check the book for all the best yacht charters to Lombok
Our #1 Recommendation for Lombok:
It's definitely worth paying from $69 a per week for Travel Insurance to avoid having to pay $50,000 for a medical airlift if you get badly injured on the sharp coral reefs. "If you can't afford Travel Insurance, you can't afford to travel" - get the best value Travel Insurance here.
$200 off - now only $1,100 for 7 days/7 nights.
