There is nothing like sipping a glass of Mai Tai on a powdery white beach. The culmination of the sea breeze, sun-kissed skin, and beats playing in the background is more than enough to get you in the mood for a summer getaway.

Move over the usual beach hotspots and instead, consider Lombok, a two-hour boat ride from the tourist throngs of Bali. Blessed with spectacular beaches and fantastic hiking trails, Lombok is often seen as a quieter, more serene version of Bali. Yet, this island is more than just a sleepy surfer’s paradise. The bar scene here includes remarkable sunsets across the ocean, and cocktails are served right on the sand.
