While Lombok’s touristic history tends to be traced back to a small scene that germinated in the 1960s, did you know a group of international thrill-seekers actually came to the island 30 years earlier? That means, when you head for the island’s famous surf spots, you are following the footsteps that people with similar goals left almost 100 years ago.
Yet while Lombok has long been known as a surfer’s paradise, there are other parts of the island that remain completely undeveloped. It takes an intrepid traveller to reach some of these places, but the reward is worth the adventure.
So, strap your board to a motorbike and weave through the palm fringed hilltops and rural villages of one of Indonesia’s most special gems. Unforgettable sights await.
Lombok has previously held rounds of Rip Curl’s world tour, as well as Asia’s own surfing championships.
From the hardcore competitive shores of Padang Padang – home of surf towns such as Uluwatu – to Desert Point and Lakey Peak in Sumbawa, surfing on Lombok is about much more than catching the next wave.
The surf adventure that awaits, lets you encounter the fascinating cultures of Lombok up close and discover first-hand the generosity of locals, their fresh-fusion cuisine, and the stunning surroundings in which they live.
Whether it’s a small deserted bay where a swift 10-minute paddle will lead you to a perfect barrel, a popular beach where beginners can pay for a lesson, or a more secluded spot trickier to navigate but ultimately unforgettable, you’ll find what you are looking for in Lombok.
One of the most popular pastimes in Lombok is exploring marine life, be it with scuba gear, a snorkel, or merely a pair of goggles. There are diving options suitable for all levels of experience, from beginner to expert, and the chances are you'll come face to face with some of the most incredible sea creatures you can imagine.
