Indonesian South Sea pearls are one of Lombok’s most famous and popular export products that are frequently purchased by visitors to the island. This tour takes you to a local and traditional pearl farm about 2 hours from Mataram. The guide will walk you through the pearl farming process step-by-step and show you the oysters in various stages of development. You will get to see the pearl hatchery, plankton lab and gain insight into the creation of a perfect pearl. We will show you how the locals painstakingly grow the microscopic oysters through the pearl culturing process and how to properly evaluate the quality of pearls so you know how to choose your own pearl in the future. There is an option to snorkel at the pearl farm sites but it is dependent on the weather conditions.
We chose this pearl farm because they focus on the pearl farming process. They do not sell pearls, but if you would like to visit the biggest pearl shop in Lombok it will be our pleasure to take you there.
