LABUHAN

"With this good company we report to Perama on Thursday morning, to sail past Labuhan Lombok over Sumbawa to Komodo and then to Flores in three days. Perama is known as one of the safer organizations in Indonesia. We have a radio on board, as well as life jackets and a lifeboat, which is quite a luxury in Indonesia. This does not mean, however, that the trip is also comfortable.
29 people are crammed on the small boat, 13 of them sleep in cabins and 16 on deck. All people, young and old, share a need for adventure and wanderlust and together we have a very good time."


Labuhan

          Labuhan is a port city in the east of Lombok, 74 kilometers east of the capital Mataram. It is the departure point to the next island in "the belt of emerald": Sumbawa. The city is also called Tanjung Kayangan. The port, with its ferries, is located south of the city and connects Lombok with Poto Tano on Sumbawa. The ferries leave 24 hours a day, but do not count on them leaving "every hour". There are different types of food at the port: fruit and vegetables for sale. The crossing takes about two hours. Everyone is welcome on the ferry: "hiking passengers", motorcycles, cars, buses, trucks, everything that really fits on the boat. The crossing costs about 6 Euro.is a port city in the east of Lombok, 74 kilometers east of the capital Mataram. It is the departure point to the next island in "the belt of emerald": Sumbawa.

The center of Labuhan is 3 km away from the ferry terminal. It is a shabby place, but it has a beautiful view of Gunung Rinjani.

The port of Labuhan has a beautiful bay, but is an ordinary transit point. Travellers from Sumbawa can travel by public buses to the main points of the island, including Praya (the international airport), Kali Putih and Lembar. You are at the mercy of the driver. You can just stay in the bus to Mataram. You will be dropped off at the bus station in Sweta, just outside Mataram. You can also just jump to the fullest bemo, which will leave the fastest to Mataram. The price of this single trip is approximately 9 Euro.
The climate on the east coast is drier and then on the west side. As you approach the port, two details are striking. Firstly, this is the view of the volcano Rinjani and two of these are the imposing trees, which you see a few kilometers before Labuhan.

 


Waiting for departure

Labuhan has a post office and various warungs that serve Indonesian dishes and a number of accommodations to sleep. the best is currently Hotel Melati Lima Tiga. It is a budget accommodation in the center of the city with small, simple rooms and shared bathrooms.
Some beaches around Labuhan can be used for snorkeling and camping. The beaches are Gili Kondo, Kapal, Patagan and Bidara. The beaches have white sand. In addition to these activities, you can also sunbathe, while enjoying the view of Mount Rinjani and the island of Sumbawa.


The ferry


From a travel blog:

"That is also necessary, because the boat trip is intense! We sleep as reported on the deck, where the mats that are assigned to us are simply the wicker mats that take you to the beach. What makes our sleeping conditions even more spartan is the fact that on the deck there is no room for 16 people to stretch out. So we lie as herrings in a ton on a much too small piece of floor, unable to turn and we feel every bone in our body."
