Biking and Snorkelling
at Gili Sudak
Not to confuse with the Gilis, Gili Sudak offers a relaxing and stunning underwater world on
a more local and off-the-beaten trackway. Before reaching the sandy shores, venture
by car and bicycle through Lombok and immerse yourself in this awesome place.
WHY THIS TOUR?
Merely a short boat ride away from another unspoilt region that bears the tropically induced name Gili, Gili Sudak offers aplenty for discerning travellers who want to enjoy the true definition of a tropical getaway.
Not to confuse with the Gili Islands, Gili Sudak’s laid-back vibe with sandy shorelines overlook what may be the clearest waters you may see. Combine this with that much-needed moment of relaxation surrounded by unmissable moments to gaze through your snorkelling mask to the wondrous underwater world. Once you have tasted Gili Sudak in all directions, little else comes close in comparison.
08:00 - 16:00
At around 8 am, we leave your hotel and head into rural Lombok. Larger parts of the island are still untouched with villages and plantations dotted along the main road, preserving ancient agricultural and irrigation techniques as used by many generations before. We reach Lombok’s main harbour town of Lembar after a comfortable 45-minute drive.
Not only the central (dis)embarkation point for passengers and freight, surrounding the town are a few places where local workers are known to fabricate bricks out of locally sourced clay. Once we have had a look at the processes taking place to get to the final product, our bicycles are ready for a recreational bike ride to Batu Kijuk harbour – the start of our boating trip to Gili Sudak. The cycling trip will take approximately 2 hours and includes ample stops for photographs of the verdant-green nature and often stunning views towards the horizon, surrounding us while paddling away.
With a renewed view of Lombok from your bicycle, a motorized outrigger will be the final means of transport on this day. Gili Sudak will be the tropical haven for the afternoon where not only lunch will be served at one of the better restaurants on the island, but where you can simply chill, enjoy the cool, ocean breeze or dive into the turquoise water for a snorkelling trip. Grab these moments with both hands, as Gili Sudak is rate as one of the finest destinations around, where the hustle and bustle of the underwater world in all of its glory are unveiled. Sadly, it is time to leave this place at the end of the afternoon, and our outrigger and car will safely deliver you back to your hotel lobby at around 4 pm.
