Lombok lusters like a mother of pearl shell, only 35 km away from the famous Island of Bali. The local Sasak population is predominantly Muslim and therefore you see Lombok’s tree line dotted with domes and minarets. The Rinjani volcano is active but harmless and provides the island with its dark soils and fertile land. In Lombok, everything grows. From coffee, cocoa, to rice and coconuts, Lombok grows fresh and eats fresh. The warm sandy beaches tassel the tropical vegetation around the entire Island. Lombok is at the cusp of two ecological zones, being right at the edge of the Wallace Line. In other words, Lombok has the flora and fauna of both Asian Tropical and Australasian ecologies. Birds of all kinds flutter between diverse varieties of palm trees.
With a rejuvenated ambition to attract tourism to Lombok, the local population and government of Indonesia have opened the Jewel of the Tropics to be shared and enjoyed by everyone. The people are joyous, cordial and welcoming. If you ever feel like breathing free and fresh with your toes in warm sands and a view of the ocean that breathes a new life into your soul, Lombok is the place for you. Lombok’s natural beauty especially on its highlands, untouched by the reckless chaos of man’s contortion of nature, makes you appreciate all the colors that hasten to invade you.
