airport - Kuta (South Lombok)
Upon arrival meeting service with your guide and proceed directly to the southwestern coast of Lombok, blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The road leads past stunning scenery, with steep valleys reaching out to the sea. At a place that resembles the end of the world, dozens of giant fishing platforms float in a tropical haze on the gentle swaying ocean surface. A small outrigger boat will take you to one of the semi- uninhabited islands right in front of you. It is a lovely leisurely trip, meandering past the bamboo bagian, offering a distinct view of the mountainous coastline. While waiting for lunch, you can soak in the tropical ambiance, only interrupted by an occasional diver or lonely swimmer. The surrounding seascape is dotted with little islands of a similar nature. Most of them see little or no human activity. Ample time for walking, swimming and snorkeling. Just outside the coast within easy reach there are beautiful corals, teeming with tiny tropical fish ! This is one of the best spots to explore the fascinating underwater world of Indonesia. Onwards drive further down south. You will pass by villages of thatched houses traditionally built on hilltops or along a river.. Surrounding these Sasak villages are cultivated fields of ubi kayu and ubi jalar, both types of sweet potato, and other subsistence crops. Life is hard in this isolated, sparsely populated, dry, and scrubby region, a land of water buffalos and women in black clothing.
