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

Money

Indonesia’s monetary unit is the RUPIAH (Roo-pee-ah) symbolised as “Rp”. Like Dollars, rupiah are  written “Rp 1,000” but said “1,000 Rupiah”. Some tourists refer to “Rupes” when speaking English, but when speaking Indonesian you should only say “Rupiah”. Recently one Australian Dollar was worth just over Rp 10,000. The rate fluctuates daily so only change enough for a few days.
