things to do
While Lombok is only a couple of hours by speed boat from Bali, it offers a back in time natural atmosphere. Much of Lombok is still untouched. For the rugged trekker it offers one and two day hikes into virgin forest. For easier day trips, Captain Brett can arrange a visit to the second highest volcano in Indonesia, the nearby crater lake and island’s most dramatic waterfall. A few minutes’ walk from the Shibui Bungalows is a dream cove, with long clean stretches of beach. Down the main road a bit is the Tanjun open market, great for taking photos, and on further along the winding mountain road, monkeys gather wishing to take picture for peanuts! For guests wanting a day of snorkeling, Captain Brett’s boat is about to be moored at the local beach behind the bungalows. Trips to any of the nearby Gili islands can also be scheduled. *See down below for a complete list of activities.
BEACHES & SNORKELLING & DIVING.
All are available! The quiet local beach Pentai Tembobor cove and Sira beaches are a short walk away. You can enjoy local food and BBQ fish from local fishermen. The beach itself is uncrowded and quiet with both sandy shore and tide pools.
BALI and THREE GILI ISLANDS. They are very accessible from Shibui Garden.
The popular Trawangan is the most vibrant and youth oriented, jammed packed with cafes, Reggae bars, and beach clubs. Gili Air, and quiet Gili Meno are more laid back and tranquil and only twenty journey from Bongsal.
