You can see Bali in Lombok... but you can’t see Lombok in Bali!
This local Lombok saying is especially true during Nyepi – the Balinese Hindu “Day of Silence” – when you really can see Bali in Lombok!
Many people assume that Balinese Hindus only live in Bali but, with the two islands being so close together, Balinese settlement in Lombok dates back for centuries. Today, Balinese communities and temples are found all around the west coast and in the cities of Lombok.
Now that the warm weather is with us again, it’s time to head to the beach!
The beach at Batu Bolong, just south of Senggigi, is perfect for a long stroll in the mornings and a delightful place for a swim. The water is warm and generally calm, with a good slope to the drop off into deeper water where you can float while taking in the gorgeous views.
