Much of the food on Lombok is fresh as there is little local refrigeration. Fresh produce, fresh dairy and of course, fresh fish make up the daily meals. Where better than a community based on the immediacy of food to learn about fishing and cooking? From casting your line to seasoning the meat, fishing is at once rewarding and challenging.

There are several different types of fishing tours that one can take in Lombok. The option of heading out an a large boat to find the big fish is there along with the small trip where you learn to cast off from the shore. Depending on your sense of adventure you will find the tour which best suits your plans for holiday.

Additionally, some of inns where you stay will offer to cook your freshly caught fish at the end of the day. Not only will you be enjoying your trip, but you will be able to savor every bite.
