Kuta – sleepy seaside vibes in lush Lombok

Nestled on the untamed south coast of tropical Lombok, Kuta is among this idyllic Indonesian island's most popular destinations, but a sleepy fishing village vibe prevails. As such, it's nothing like the brash, bustling resort town of Kuta you'll find on neighbouring Bali. The star attraction of this "other Kuta", as travellers call it, is a tranquil, undeveloped stretch of soft white sand and a seemingly endless expanse of warm, turquoise water to splash around in. You'll also find simple but sensational restaurants serving fresh, ocean-to-table seafood, and chilled-out bars where you can toast the sunset with an ice-cold beer. With an eclectic array of Kuta holiday rentals to choose from, you're sure to find one that suits all your needs.

Things to do

Secluded bays and traditional villages

If you can tear yourself away from the beach, you'll find plenty of enthralling attractions virtually on the doorstep of your Kuta holiday rental. For an unforgettable day out, hire a moped and immerse yourself in Lombok's traditional ways of life. The nearby villages of Sade and Rambitan are ideal spots to learn all about the customs and culture of the Sasak, the island's native people. Here, you can marvel at their thatched rice barns, and buy exquisite, locally produced woven textiles and earthenware pottery. Afterwards, head off in search of deserted beaches that make Kuta's seem positively overcrowded in comparison, like the blissfully secluded Mawun beach.

Activities

An unspoilt surfer's paradise

Kuta is justly revered as a surfing mecca, with a host of easily-accessible breaks that offer ideal conditions for first-timers and professionals alike. There are a number of expertly-run surf shops in town, offering board hire as well as private and group lessons. Some of the more challenging surf spots are only accessible by boat, but you'll always find friendly locals more than happy to give you a ride. Kuta is also a scuba-diving hotspot, with nearby coral reefs that you'll invariably find teeming with multi-hued tropical fish, majestic sea turtles and harmless reef sharks.

Weather

Year-round heat and sizzling sunshine in Kuta

Kuta's enviable tropical climate ensures heat, and plenty of sunshine, at all times of year. The weather is particularly idyllic throughout the dry season of May to September, when skies tend to be clear and humidity is relatively low. The rainy season runs from October to April, but Lombok is typically significantly drier than Bali, so visiting off-season is certainly viable. For the most part, the rain tends to fall in short, refreshing bursts, so this shouldn't interfere with your beach time too much.

Natural features

Lombok's natural wonders

Within easy reach of your Kuta holiday rental you'll find a wealth of jaw-dropping natural spectacles. Many visitors visit Lombok to trek to the summit of Mount Rinjani, Indonesia's 2nd-tallest volcano. You'll need to set aside several days to achieve this, and the hike, through lush jungle and across barren plains, is arduous. But it's more than worth it just to take in the spectacle of the turquoise crater lake visible only once you've ascended to the rim. To sweeten the deal further, you can revive your weary bones by descending to the said lake to bathe in blissful natural hot springs, before making one final climb to the peak to witness a mind-blowing sunrise.
