Are you setting up some holiday plans oversea? I recommend you to put Lombok Island in your list! πŸ˜‰ Lombok Island is a small beautiful island located in West Nusa Tenggara Province, Indonesia.
The island is surrounded by a number of smaller islands locally called Gilli. The total area of the island is 4,515 km2 (approx. 1,743 sq mil) and the capital (as well as) the largest city on the island is Mataram. Mount Rinjani is one thing that cannot be separated from the island (3.726 m/12,224 ft). This highest point of Lombok Island has a lake called Segara Anak.

The most interesting tourist attraction of Lombok Island is its beaches. There are Senggigi Beach, Kuta Beach (distinctly different from Kuta, Bali), Pink Beach, Selong Belanak Beach, and many more! And one thing that shouldn’t be missed by the tourists is diving! The incredibly beautiful underwater life of Lombok beach is unforgettable! Lombok beach, especially the south part of the island is also considered to be one of the world’s best places to surf. So surfers will always be having a wonderful time here πŸ˜‰
