Lombok

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.

Lombok School of Surfing has just opened in the wave-rich bay of Grupuk, close to Kuta Lombok. Small classes with personalised family service.

Our #1 Recommendation for Lombok

It's definitely worth the $5 a day for TRAVEL INSURANCE to avoid having to pay $50,000 for an Emergency Flight if you get badly injured on the sharp coral reefs or crazy roads.

Top Travel Tips

You want transport?

Riding a motorbike is the most dangerous thing you can do in Indonesia. Every day there are lethal accidents, often because of unlicenced schoolkids, or drunk tourists at night. The roads are crowded and pot-holed. Most drivers don’t know any road rules except pay the cops to get out of trouble.
