With all of the organising taken care of, just sit back, relax and revel in the crystal-clear waters of the Bali Sea, the array of fresh seafood on offer and the friendliness of the locals as they welcome you to their slice of paradise.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Stay on the often-overlooked east coast of Lombok with some time spent in Labuan Pandan, taking a snorkelling trip, and enjoying a secluded island lunch and sumptuous seafood barbecue dinner.
  • Support the island’s communities during your time in Senaru by embarking on a tour run by passionate local women who are developing skills in tourism.
  • Explore Lombok by visiting the Masbagik pottery village, Tetebatu and Senaru, which will all give you a true insight into local customs and culture – as well as the delicious local food – of the island.
  • The Gili Islands may just be some of the most stunning stretches of sand you’ve come across. Relax on the shores of Gili Air, taking the day at your own pace – swimming, snorkelling, eating and repeating.
  • Begin your island jaunt with a night in Sanur on Bali’s east coast. This beachside haven has all of the ingredients for a relaxing stay, so why not consider extending your time here before your Lombok adventure?
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Coral Triangle Center Foundation. Donations help expand their coral restoration project and support their educational outreach activities for local schools in Nusa Penida.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Part of travelling with Intrepid means respecting local cultures and sensibilities. That way you get the most out of your interactions with local people and environments. Lombok is more conservative than Bali, so it's best to dress conservatively while you're there, particularly in smaller towns and during village walks.
  • Walking in the villages of Tetebatu and Senaru is on relatively flat ground; however, the terrain between villages and in the hills can be steep and, at times, slippery or muddy. On our waterfall walk from Senaru you will need to walk through a running stream. Footwear with good grip that can get wet is ideal.
  • The snorkelling trip off the east coast of Lombok is a great chance to witness the sealife, but bear in mind you'll need to be a confident swimmer to partake in this activity.
  • Our accommodation on the east coast of Lombok is remote, and away from the main town. Our simple bungalows and beachside location allow a great chance to unwind and enjoy the slow pace in this slice of paradise.
  • You may also want to check out our Bali & Lombok Adventure (TISBC) if you have longer time to explore in country.

I loved Lombok! I came into this trip following on from ‘Beautiful Bali’, and Lombok was my favourite part of the whole two week experience! The cultural experience this tour provided was something which I would never have been able to source myself. Plus ending on some chilled days in Gili Air perfectly rounded off the adventurous journey. Our trip leader ‘Andy Swandy’ gave us a true local experience and our group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed his and one another’s company.

This is my 8th trip with intrepid, it did not disappoint. For those seeking an Island paradise away from the hustle and bustle of Bali, definitely visit Lombok.

Fantastic trip around Lombok. It had a more wild and authentic vibe compared to Bali and felt more off the beaten track which was exactly what we were looking for. Would highly recommend visiting Lombok as part of your Indonesia trip.
