Pulau Lombok

WEST NUSA TENGGARA PROVINCE

Look out from anywhere on the east coast of Bali and the land that catches your eye is the island of Lombok, similar in size yet vastly different from its sister island, despite its proximity across the strait that bears its name. Not only is it administered separately, but Lombok also has a distinct animal and plant life and is home to species – such as the tree kangaroo – not seen in Bali and more associated with Australia than south-east Asia.

Dominated by Gunung Rinjani, Indonesia’s second-highest volcanic peak, Lombok is a natural wonderland, where ribbons of white sand beaches meet dense tropical jungles that lead to volcanic crater lakes. It is an island of authentic palm-frond houses of the indigenous Sasak people, towering ancient pagoda-like temples, and traditional crafts and agricultural practices, which together make Lombok a microcosm of the entire region.

With so much to do in and around its waters, an overnight charter is the stress-free laid-back way to visit the island from Bali’s Serangan Harbour, with timings entirely up to you rather than the local ferry captains.

An overnight charter to Lombok also allows you to explore the island as you wish, be that to take in the spectacular talents of the surfers on the huge breaks of Bangko Bangko (Desert Point), or the popular diving spots of the mighty Belongas Bay, where hammerhead sharks make spectacular, if menacing, visitors.

If solitude and magnificent vistas are what you’re after, look no further than the island’s south west regions, and the still largely undiscovered ‘secret’ Gili islands just off the Lombok coast. Here you’ll find no all-night parties, just pristine Eden-like bays, stretches of sand where you’re more likely to encounter the native wildlife than another human being, and shallows that draw in even the most easy-going of visitors towards the offshore reefs that simply teem with the darting colours and activity of the tropical fish that call them home.

‘Secret Gillies’ Expedition

OVERNIGHT CRUISE 2-3 Days 

Explore the ‘secret south gillies’ whilst this untouched gem still offers uninhabited islands and a healthy vibrant underwater oasis. Made up of 13 small islands this undeveloped region of Indonesia offers tourists the ‘true’ travel experience only a stones throw from Bali. With the convenience of departing from Bali, this is a great expedition for those searching adventure for on a tight schedule. All characters are tailor made to each clients interests and satisfaction. Contact us so we can start planning your trip of a lifetime.

‘Yin and Yang’ Expedition

OVERNIGHT CRUISE 3-4 Days 

Cruise the entirety of the west Lombok coast soaking in the unspoiled south before moving to the now infamous gili island trio islands. Get an insight of pre development exploring the uninhabited islands of the south that offers some world class diving, surfing and private island beach parties. After the southern solitude head north to the stunning gili islands for a unique party vibe experience and pristine white sand beaches. If you’re looking for the best of both worlds on your travel adventures then this is a great option.
