Most islands in Nusa Tengarra are rarely visited, with a slight exception of Flores and Lombok. So, expect endless diving and white-sand beaches as perfect as possible.Lombok in Nusa Tengarru is the gateway to eastern Indonesia and is a relatively chill escape from the jaded Bali scene. There is frequent ferry connectivity from Padang Bai in Bali to Lembar (4-5 hours). There's also an airport, with great flight connectivity to most of Indonesia. Gili Islands are also nearby and are increasingly becoming a backpacker favourite, again especially for those looking for an alternative to Bali.Other great islands in Nusa Tengarra: West Timor, Sawu Islands, Sumbawa (especially for surfers) and the Alor archipelago.
