Put on your most comfortable flip-flops and shorts as you venture into the magical land of Lombok. You first stop for the day is the village of Sade in central Lombok. Herein reside the Sasak natives, the ethnic group that make up majority of Lombok population. You'll appreciate this village for maintaining its authenticity and tradition that's visible in the manner of roof makeups and buffalo dung floors.
If you're wondering where this little haven is, it is in Rambitan, a little distance from Mataram, Lombok. The women here busy themselves with hand woven objects that are unique to Lombok, so you can watch them at work as you soak in the village where time has stood still.
Once you're done appreciating this place, you're headed towards the famous Kuta beach, some 15 minutes away. If you're wondering what's so great about this beach, then the white sandy beach and crystal clear water shall make for a great explanation.
From there, you ride to Buak beach, which is quite the eye-opener, for you're embarking on what is literally "off the beaten track." The uncharted roads offer a stellar view of the surroundings, as you journey on a 4x4 wheel drive.
By the way, if you're visiting Lombok in February or March, you'll get to experience the annual celebration of Bau Nyale - "Bau" means catch and "Nyale" meaning a sea worm. Which means this festival is a celebration of catching sea worms that surface at Kuta beach at certain times during the year. Apart from capturing sea worms, the Sasak folk hold performances and traditional competitions such as "bekayaq" and "begambus."
Moving on, your next stop is the Tanjung Aan beach, part of Kuta beach that offers a scenic view of the bay and white sands. Here you shall break for coffee then make your way to Seger beach then Mawun and Selong Belanak beach. And before you know it, your day of Lombok fun has come to an end!
