Today there is a flight ahead of the selected airport towards Indonesia. There are stopovers on the way.
DAY 2: Arrival in Bali – Transfer to the hotel in Sanur
You land at Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport, located in the capital of Bali, Denpasar. Upon arrival, you will pass an entry check and receive your free tourist visa. In the Arrivals Hall, you will be greeted by a driver / guide, identified by an Asia Travel sign, and right from the start you will get a feel for genuine Balinese hospitality.
The guide will take you to your hotel in the beach town of Sanur. The rest of the day is free time to relax after a long flight and get used to the time difference and warmer climate.
DAYS 3-4: Sanur on his own advice
The days are free time that you can use to explore Sanuri, for example.
Sanur is one of Bali’s most popular resort towns with a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. The city’s biggest attraction is the 5 km long golden sandy beach, whose calm water is also great for children. Next to the beach is a charming boulevard that invites you to take a leisurely stroll, jog or bike ride. There are many locally run small shops along the boulevard.
An even greater selection of shops and boutiques can be found along the city’s main street. There are also lots of good restaurants and cozy cafes on the main street where it is nice to sit and watch the bustling city life pass by. On the narrow side streets leading from the main street you can see more local life, charming houses and beautiful temples.
It is worth heading to the beach boulevard at the latest when the evening comes, when the sunset colors the sky in all shades of yellow, orange, red and purple. After an evening stroll, you can enjoy dinner in one of the many restaurants and finally a nightcap in the atmospheric lounge bar, where there is also plenty to choose from.
DAY 5: Sanur – Lombok – Senggigi
Today is the time to continue our journey from Bali towards new adventures. After breakfast and check-out, you will be picked up from your hotel and taken to Sanur Harbor, where you will continue by speedboat to Lombok Island, east of Bali.
Lombokin is recognized from afar by the mighty Mt. From the Rinjani volcano, which rises north of the island 3726 meters above sea level. After about 2 hours 45 minutes by boat, you will arrive at Teluk Kode, where you will be met by a driver. The driver will take you to your hotel in Senggig, which is about a 45-minute drive away. After check-in, the rest of the day is free to laze on the sandy beach, relax by the hotel’s pool or explore Senggig and its restaurant offerings.
Lombok is a peaceful and scenic island with landscapes characterized by rainforests, volcanoes, rock formations, lush rice terraces and picturesque sandy beaches. There are far fewer tourists here than elsewhere in Bali, and therefore the island has remained relatively untouched and the atmosphere is more relaxed and peaceful.
DAYS 6-7: Senggigi on his own advice
There is no program planned, so you may want to focus on just relaxing.
Situated on the shores of the Pacific Bay, Senggigi has some of the best sandy beaches in the area. The turquoise blue water is always warm and the waves shallow. On the beach it is nice to laze on a lounger enjoying the warmth of the sun. Head to the beach early in the morning to watch the work of the local fishermen as they return ashore with their catch. There is a selection of good restaurants and small shops along the main street. The restaurant offer includes both small and inexpensive cups serving local food as well as slightly more expensive and finer restaurants located closer to the beach.
If you want to see more of the island, you can rent a bike and go on a bike ride on the island’s good cycling routes. Along the routes are quaint country villages, rice fields, waterfalls, temples and a lively market that sells everything from hand-woven fabrics to pottery and baskets. Depending on the time of your trip, you can also see farmers harvesting in the traditional style with just the help of a sickle or plowing their fields with a buffalo-pulled plow.
It is also worth heading to the beach in the evening, as the sunsets are very beautiful here.
DAY 8: Lombok – Gili Trawangan
Today you “jump” west from Lombok to Gili Trawangan Island.
After breakfast and check-out, you will be picked up from your resort and taken to the island’s little port, from where the journey continues by speedboat to Gili Trawangan. The boat ride takes about 15 minutes. After check-in, you can head out to find your favorite beach or enjoy the island atmosphere at one of Gili Trawangan’s many bars.
Gili Trawangan, also known as Gili T, is one of the three islands of Gili and also the most popular of them. The popularity of the island is based in particular on its excellent diving and snorkelling opportunities. While adventuring below the surface, you can see sea turtles, colorful tropical fish and even tiger sharks, among others. Gili T is also known for its stunning sandy beaches, which literally invite you to relax and enjoy life.
During the day, the island has a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, but when the evening comes, the small restaurants and bars on the island also have fun. In the evening, head west to the island to enjoy the magnificent sunsets and great views of Bali. In good weather you can see the sun set over the mighty Mt. Behind the Agung volcano.
There are no asphalt roads or cars on the island, so bicycles and horse-drawn carriages are used here. Once you arrive, you can either walk to your hotel, which takes about 10 minutes, or rent horse-drawn carriages. Prices are not fixed, but usually horse-drawn carriage rides cost around Rp 150,000-200,000. Be sure to negotiate the price with the driver before getting on the carts!
Gili Trawangan has everything you could want from a relaxing beach holiday.
DAYS 9-10: Gili Trawanga on her own advice
The days at Gil are free.
There is plenty to see and do throughout the day, and by evening the island’s many places to go will be filled with partygoers.
If you want to do things, you can go on a diving or snorkeling trip, for example. There is a lot to see beneath the surface, and meeting sea turtles in their natural habitat in particular is a memorable experience! If you have not dived before, you can book a paid diving course at the dive center, of which there are several on the island. If, on the other hand, you prefer snorkeling, you can go on a guided snorkeling trip organized by specialized snorkeling shops. Snorkeling equipment can also be purchased or rented if you want to explore the depths of the sea on your own. Snorkeling shops offer maps showing the best snorkeling spots on the island.
Shoppers can head east to the island, where many small shops sell swimwear, stylish skirts and blouses, and souvenirs. Sun loungers are available for sun worshipers on both the beaches and the hotel’s swimming pools. If your thirst surprises, all you have to do is choose a restaurant or bar that looks nice, order a cool drink and enjoy the atmosphere. Cold and fresh coconut water served in a coconut shell is always a good option!
In the evening not to be missed on the west side of the island with spectacular sunsets, which can be enjoyed even while sitting in bean bag chair and a “Sundowner” sipping. In many places on the water there are charming wooden swings built by the hotel, which are especially popular with photographers at sunset.
DAY 11: Gili Trawangan – Nusa Lembongan
Today it is the turn of the 4th and last island of the trip, Nusa Lembongan, southwest of Gili Trawangan and southeast of Bali.
After check-out, you will independently transfer to Gili T Harbor, where you will travel to Nusa Lembongan Island, about a 2-hour boat ride away. A shuttle bus from Lembongan Harbor will take you further to your beach resort. The size of the island is only 8 km2, and you can feel the relaxed and relaxed atmosphere everywhere even before stepping ashore.
Nusa Lembonga is known for its stunning sandy beaches, turquoise sea water, swaying palm trees and rugged nature, characterized by cacti and fine rock formations. Like Gili Trawangan, Nusa Lembongan is popular with divers and snorkelers.
After check-in, there is still plenty of time to relax on the sandy beach and go for a swim in the warm water.
DAYS 12-13: Nusa Lembonga on her own advice
On this tropical island paradise, too, the days are free.
You can spend time relaxing by the pool or on the magnificent white sandy beach, or explore the island and its beautiful nature. Note that Lembongan has very few cars, so the best and most convenient means of transport is a bicycle.
Many of the islanders make their living from seaweed cultivation. At low tide, algae fields emerge underwater, and you can see farmers wading in ankle-deep water and picking algae in large wicker baskets. The collected seaweed is finally dried in the sun.
Since the islanders get most of their income from seaweed, fishing is correspondingly less important, which you will notice as soon as you dive below the surface: you swim in the water with a flock of fish in all the colors of the rainbow. During the diving or snorkeling trip, you can see rays, clumps and sea turtles, among other things. The locals are very friendly and hospitable. If you’re interested in getting to know them better, feel free to talk to us – with good luck you can even be invited for coffee or tea at the algae farmer’s home. Locals are also happy to advise the road to the lesser-known beaches of the island, to which few tourists would otherwise be able to navigate. The most popular beaches are Mushroom Beach, Sunset Beach and Dream Beach, all located on the west side of the island.
The northeastern parts of Lembongan are mostly covered with mangrove. Mangrove forests play an important role in the region’s ecosystem, including corals. You can explore the mangrove mazes by kayak or small rowing boat.
In the evening, enjoy a glass of wine in the Panorama Bar & Restaurant, which, as the name implies, offers incredibly great panoramic views at sunset.
DAY 14: Nusa Lembongan – Bali – The journey home begins
Today is the last day of your exciting island adventure, and it’s time to take a course towards your homeland.
You will be picked up from your resort by shuttle bus and driven to the small port, which is about a 45-minute speedboat ride back to Sanur Harbor. From the port you will be taken on to Denpasar Airport, from where you will fly to Europe via stopover (s).
DAY 15: Return home
You will land at your chosen airport after a wonderfully relaxing Indonesian island jump.
