Lombok, Indonesia: The ‘Other Bali’

25 minutes away from one of SEA’s hottest tourist destinations is a quieter, more authentic paradise.

If you can’t get enough of the beach, a trip to Selong Belanak is just what you need. The sand is soft and white, and the waters ideal for beginner surfers. Most beach-goers hang out by the beach just near the entrance, walk several meters further away, and you might have a part of the beach for yourself.
