If you want to see the beaches in Lombok, I recommend getting a motorbike. I actually didn’t know how to ride one and got my first experience with it this trip. The outcome: my motorbike hits my friends and knocks it down! Rule #1 do not use the brake and gas at the same time. During the trip, we checked out the Kuta Lombok beach which is the main beach in the Kuta Lombok area. Really, I do not recommend going to this beach. It was kind of dirty to be honest although the tide was good for swimming.

I took the ferry Bali to Lombok recently and it was an adventurous journey. When you head over to the ferry terminal try to negotiate a shuttle of around 300,000 IDR. My friends and I decided to take the slow ferry to view the natural scenery and possibly a fun adventure. When you first arrive, be careful with the touts. They will try to rip you off and offer a higher price. DO NOT listen to them and head straight into the ferry terminal. Once you arrive into the ferry terminal, it will cost about 40,000 IDR for a ticket. This is much cheaper than the speed boat, and if you have the additional time I recommend taking the slower ferry.
