Sasaks, Stunning Beaches and Surfing
Although much less visited that its popular neighbour, Bali, the laid-back island of Lombok is slowly becoming a tourist destination in its own right. The culture is a unique blend of the indigenous Muslim Sasak people with Balinese Hindu and Arabic influences, as well as animism, which is evident in special ceremonies and dances. The interior landscape of Lombok is dominated by rugged forests and the towering Mount Rinjani, the second highest volcano in Indonesia (at 3726 metres). For those who are up for a (serious) challenge, reaching the summit of Mount Rinjani is rewarded by spectacular views of the surrounding islands. Fringed by pristine, white sandy beaches and an impressive underwater world, Lombok has much to offer in the way of surfing, snorkeling, and diving. Three tiny islands, Gili Trewangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air, off the northwest coast of Lombok lure travellers who are keen to laze on beautiful beaches and snorkel the nearby coral reefs.
