Kuta Lombok is a city located on the Southern West coast of Lombok Island. It is primarily known as a surfing spot with amazing wave breaks on a number of beaches. Even though you might not be into surfing, the scenerey is just breathtaking. Mesmerizing white sands and turquoise waters fill you with joy and happiness.
As for the Gili Islands, the beach cleanliess is way above Asian standards. The water color changes with the lighting from a beautiful light blue to a moody dark blue. While a lot of resorts are under construction, It is still way less touristy and wilder than Bali – at least at the moment.
Renting a scooter or a bicycle is the best way to get around Kuta Lombok since most beautiful beaches and viewpoints are slightly out of the city. All viewpoints and surfing spots are mentionned on maps.me.
