Getting Around

Transport options on the island of Lombok vary from rattletrap 'bemos' (converted passenger-carrying minivans) to horse-drawn carts. If you want to discover the island at your own pace, then it's maybe worthwhile going for a car or bike rental. This is easily done through hotels and available at the airport. You will find that many of the islands venues and resorts offer drop and pick-up services, due to the lack of public transport.

Public Holidays

Dul Fitri, marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, is the most important Muslim celebration. It is a two-day public holiday; in Bali it is celebrated only by Muslims but in Lombok it is a grand occasion for its majority Muslim population. Other Muslim holidays celebrated in Lombok are Lebaran Topat (seven days after Idul Fitri), Hijriyah (Islamic New Year), Ma'ulud (Mohammad's birthday), Isra Mi'raj (Ascension of Mohammad) and Idul Adha (Day of Sacrifice).


Lombok's weather is tropical – 12-hour days, 28°C - 34°C (83°F - 93°F) average temperatures throughout the year and two main seasons, the wet (October to March) and the dry (May to September). Drier than neighboring Bali, even during the rainy season, you can still catch many a good day's sun during this period of the year.
Typically tropical, expect hot and humid weather and a welcome sea breeze.

Being so close to the equator, days are typically 12 hours long with sunrise around 06:30 and sunsets around 18:30.

We recommend that visitors bring the usual light clothes for the tropics. Bring at least one long-sleeved shirt and one pair of trousers. It is also worth mentioning that Lombok's monkeys are high-risk for rabies, so don’t feed them and wear long trousers and closed shoes around them.
