The islands are a popular destination for Western tourists looking for a remote island experience. Each island has several very small resorts, usually consisting of a small collection of huts for tourists, and a restaurant. Most local inhabitants live on Trawangan in a township stretching along its east side just inland (which is also where most recent development is taking place).
Lombok is dominated by one of the highest mountains in Indonesian, Gunung Rinjani, which soar to 3726 meters. it is the most popular destination in Nusa Tenggara, with Senggigi beach, Kuta Lombok beach, and the fabled Gili Islands drawing visitors for action both in and out of the water.
