Central and Eastern Lombok are quiet areas with limited tourism but offer some incredible natural attractions to explore. The region provides small warungs and local eateries, with far less English spoken by locals.
Access the area by taxi or rent a car or motorbike to move as you wish. The small villages and quiet valleys entice travellers to explore the beautiful landscape; however, with limited accommodation and dining options, it is best to visit for a day trip. Drive from Kuta in the south, or stay a night or two in Tetebatu to unwind and enjoy the lush greenery. Visit the town's iconic viewing platform over the ricefields to witness scenic rice terraces and fields spanning out as far as the eye can see, with Tetebatu providing an incredible insight on the island's handicraft industry too. From the eastern port, you will be able to access from Labuhan Lombok, which is the port to reach Gili Kondo, Gili Kapal, Gili Bidara and Gili Lampu.
