This week we’re catching a ferry to Lombok.
The ferry was a little different this time from the last 2, certainly a much older boat with no fresh air in the bottom level where the cars and bikes go and also hardly any people on it.
Our first stop on Lombok is Ekas on the southeastern point of the island. Here a man suggested we check out Heaven Beach for somewhere to camp. Sounds pretty good huh?! It sure was a beautiful place to camp for the night, we even had a family of monkey pay us a visit in the morning with one even trying to get in the car! Unfortunately the wind really picked up so we decided to drive to Kuta where there is more to do and hopefully it would be a bit more protected from these howling winds.
The beaches around the Kuta area are just magical; beautiful azure water, white sands and dramatic headlands.
After spending a week relaxing here (and Mark recovering from a bout of food poisoning) we made our way up to Central Lombok to Tetebatu. Here we find a great guesthouse (Haikiki) which is set in the picturesque rice fields with a mesmerizing view up to Rinjani. There’s some beautiful waterfalls in this area, so we decide to base ourselves here for a few days and explore the area.
Thanks to Gun and Rose for letting us camp here for those view days! If you’re thinking of coming to the area, I’d really recommend staying here as it’s one of the most relaxing places to spend a few days. Check out their website:
To finish off our week we drive to Senggigi on the west coast where we’re waiting for our visas to be extended.
Next week we’re visiting the Gili’s and then doing a lap around Rinjani before moving onto Bali.
Thanks for watching! We’d love to hear suggestions of places to visit so feel free to leave us a comment below!
