AMAZING LOMBOK AND THE GILI ISLANDS

Lombok is just a short 25 minute flight east of Bali, but is a world of its own… an island of picture-perfect landscapes and deserted white sand beaches.

The island of Lombok is almost as large Bali and, like her famous sister, has a wide range of attractions and activities for all types of travellers.

The main areas of tourism development are Senggigi on the west coast; the three Gili islands off the northwest coast, and Kuta on the island’s south coast.

All around the coastline, the beaches are exceptionally clean, with clear blue waters bordered by large stretches of sand and fringed with coconut palms.

WaterfallThe interior of the island is heavily forested and retains its natural beauty. Large expanses of jungle and forest areas are easily accessible for trekking and exploring; waterfalls, rivers, hills and mountains provide myriad opportunities for eco-tourism.

The southern coastline is stunning, with long stretches of deserted beaches, cliffs and bays overlooking the vast ocean, which provides some of the best surfing in Indonesia, at both Kuta and Gerupuk. 

Just minutes off the north-west coast lay three small islands, known as the Gilis (Gili means "small island”): Gili Air, Meno and Trawangan. 

All three islands are easily accessed by fast boats from Bali or by speedboat from mainland Lombok.

Dive shops and 5-star PADI-certified dive instructors operate on all three Gilis; catering for the novice through to experienced divers. The clear turquoise waters are home to thousands of varieties of colourful tropical fish and provide endless opportunities for snorkelling and diving. 

Sunbathing in Gili TThe beaches are clean, the sand sparkling white and the sun always seems to shine. All three islands have a good variety of accommodation and restaurants for those seeking the true tropical island get-away.

White Sand Weddings is happy to arrange your transfers to and from Bali, and accommodation at the best hotels and resorts on either Lombok or the Gilis… or combine stays at both places to make the most of your time in paradise!
