Being a lot less touristy than Bali, one does get an authentic Indonesian experience. With places like the Gili Islands and Mt Rinjani, there is so much to do for not only surfers but divers and explorers. Why don’t you take a guided bicycle tour? There are some beautiful quaint accommodation options and the beaches are spectacular.

Most of Lombok’s south coasts offer surf-seekers challenging waves of various grades. There are four surf-points, which are highly recommended. Within the Lombok’s Kuta Beach there are two points, namely Gerupuk that provides softer waves, and Aik Guling offering waves mostly for the goofy’s. The ideal surf season is during the periods of June, July, August, December and January. The next break is at Ekas Beach that provides more challenging waves and reef-break-point, reachable by boat or by land from Kuta Beach. Alternatively, choose to stay at the Sanctuary in Lombok.

Heaven on the Planet and Ocean Heaven are unique. With breath-taking scenery and world-class surf breaks in front of the two resorts, they re-connect people with busy lives to the environment with natural forests, plantations and a warm ocean. Massage pampering, healthy food and true village staff bring simple reality back to your life. The restaurants have a broad menu, infinity swimming pools, beautiful villas and cottages and many activities for all ages. Internet can take you back into the real world if you want! Tours to lonely and remote Lombok villages, spectacular snorkelling on ancient reefs and many water sports allow you to regenerate. Pure Heaven!
