Sengiggi and Gilis are perfectly safe. The only area badly affected is around the northeast of Lombok.

Hi wajen.

We take it you are over there at the moment, we're heading that way on the 12th out of Sanur.

Would we be best heading up the coast this side (in Sanur) or getting over to Lombok and heading to senggigi.

Appreciate any feedback.

Ps

How's the weathers there ?

Hi JacnTon,

I've just come back...wish I was still there!

You may want to look into flying from Bali to Lombok, as the fastboats have not been running for a couple of weeks now. They may well start up again by the time you get there, but if you are short of time better to be sure your transport is certain.

To check flight prices, check tiket2.com or Garuda ( easy to purchase via their app).

When I was over there, the weather was lovely and sunny, however it was very windy so if you are out on the water it can be choppy. If you are planning on diving, the sites on the west side of Gili T had poor vis due to silt.
