Great beaches, no people

Tacked onto the southeast coast of Lombok almost as an afterthought, Ekas is arguably the most spectacular part of the entire island. While "Ekas" particularly refers to a village on the peninsula’s western coast, we use it here for a catchall for the entire southeast corner of Lombok. Stunning cliffs plunge into soft white sand beaches while picture-perfect waves roll in one after another. This is wild and rugged Indonesia at its best and, thanks to an improving network of roads, more and more of it is becoming easier to access.

Roughly triangular in shape, Ekas has the Ekas Bay to its west, the Indian Ocean to the south and the Alas Sea to the east. While much of it is cliff-face (similar to the Bukit Peninsula in Bali) much of the south coast is lined by beautiful white sand beaches easily approached by car or motorbike. To the southwest lies Sungkun Beach, which you’ll need a 4WD to reach in wet season, but we—just—managed it in an Avanaza after a few days of no rain. This beautiful beach has an offshore reef keeping the monstrous waves back off the sand. A headland at the western end can be climbed to offer spectacular views over the entire beach—it’s well worth the effort getting up there. To the far east you’ll find Pink Beach, Jeeva Beloam and a lighthouse on the cape.
