Pura Narmada (or Narmada Temple), around 10 km east of Cakranegara in Narmada, was created circa 1805 as a replica of Gunung Rinjani and Segara Anak, the lake within Rinjani's crater.The gardens at Narmada are beautifully maintained and surround the pools and lake.
Located around 60 km south of Mataram, Kuta (sometimes spelt Kute) is the main town and tourism centre on the south coast of Lombok, and is the gateway for exploring the fantastic south coast and the many places of interest in the region.
Southwest Lombok... a meandering coastline of pristine white sand beaches and thirteen small islands - the Southwest Gilis - floating in the sparkling turquoise waters just offshore.
Lombok is proudly home to some outstanding restaurants and the culinary scene is expanding all the time – from simple cafés serving traditional Sasak dishes filled with the tantalising flavours of Indonesian spices, to innovative restaurants where renowned chefs curate menus that redefine the boundaries of taste.
When the main tourism areas in Lombok get too busy, a day trip across the island is a great way to get away from the crowds and see the “real face” of the island.
The east of the island is the least visited and developed area of Lombok, although there are large towns and a thriving local population. Most people visit the area to catch inter-island ferries across to neighbouring Sumbawa, en-route to the islands of Komodo and Flores in the east.
Gili Trawangan, or “Gili T” as its affectionately known, is the largest and most developed of the three Gilis, with the greatest range of facilities and activities.
