Weather in Lombok – When to Go

Q – When is the best time to go to Lombok? What are the weather like in Lombok? For me I would like to chill out and have some surfing done without much of the crowd if possible. Please suggest! – June

A -Lombok, in west Nusa Tenggara of Indonesia share the major tropical climate of two seasons – the dry season and the wet season. It is also one of the drier places to enjoy in comparison to Bali or the other nearby counterparts with temperatures averaging around 30 C and are mostly humid.

Therefore mostly you may enjoy your time here with good amount of sun if you can ignore the humidity, and during wet season with some bouts of rains in the day but it should not be much of a deterrence in your holiday. The dry season is from May to October, where it is also the peak season where most tourists flock to Lombok, though this is also the best time to go here. The wet season is from October to March, with rain less than an hour a day, therefore can be your alternative choice to escape the crowd.
