Lombok - a spicy little island next to Bali!
Lombok is the Indonesian name for chili pepper, and you'll find our spicy little island only 70km from Bali. The two islands are separated by the ecologically significant Wallace Line, separating Equatorial Asia from Marsupial Australia, marking vast and immediately noticeable changes in the flora and fauna.
Lombok lies only 375km south of the equator, and therefore
you'll find a tropical climate. Days are almost universally 12
hours long; sunrise is approximately at 6:20 a.m., sunset at 6:30
p.m. depending on the time of year. The average daytime temperature
is between 27° C to 30° C (80° F to 90° F). If you plan to trek
onto Mt. Rinjani bring a sweater along - with 3,726 meters it is

You also can experience the underwater paradise by snorkelling near one of the many small islands in the bay of Sekotong.
The local people in south-west Lombok haven't been influenced by mass tourism and are very friendly, sometimes curios. The language spoken is "Bahasa Indonesia"and "Bahasa Sasak".

The inhabitants' main source of income in South Lombok is fishing and pearl farming (South Lombok's pearl farms are the main exporter of quality pearls in Indonesia).
