Lombok holidays

Located to the east of its illustrious neighbour Bali, Lombok measures 80km across at its widest point and is dominated by the mighty Gunung Rinjani, which, at 3,726 metres, is Indonesia’s second highest volcano. With idyllic beaches ringed by coral reef, lush vegetation and good infrastructure, the island has a majority indigenous population of Sasak Muslims, while there are also numbers of Hindu Balinese as well as Chinese and Sasak Buddhists. As a result, islanders enjoy a lively festival calendar; the largest and most colourful being Bau Nayale (Sea Worm Festival) held every February over four days on Lombok’s Kuta beach. Commemorating a mythical princess, the festival coincides with the spawning of marine worms that are caught and eaten after roasting in a banana leaf
