Mystical Neverland Bat Cave Lombok (also known as Goa Buwun Prabu to locals) is an incredible underground cave where you can find thousands of bats flying around inside. The Mystical Neverland Bat Cave in Lombok is becoming increasingly popular due to its incredible light rays that shine through the top of the cave. The light rays combined with the dark mysterious interior of the cave make for an incredibly magical photo. If you’re in Lombok, this spot is not to be missed!
How to get to Mystical Neverland Bat Cave Lombok
From our accommodation in Kuta it was only a short 10 minute drive on our scooters. If you type into your GPS ‘Mystical Neverland’ or ‘Goa Buwun Prabu’ it will take you straight there. You can drive right down to the entrance of the bat cave although the path does get very thin so be extra careful.
The best way to get around Lombok is by renting a scooter. We rented our scooter for 50K IDR per day. Getting around the island is very easy as majority of the roads are newly paved. Some of the roads are unpaved with bits of rock and loose gravel, but nothing too extreme.
Where to stay in Lombok
Lombok is a large island with a variety of areas to stay, although we found the best area for tourists to be Kuta. Kuta is full of restaurants, cafes and clothes shops. We stayed at Three V and it was perfect for our extended stay. The rooms were clean with a lovely patio for us to sit on. If you’re looking to stay in a beautiful villa, a new and modern accommodation option is Harmony Villas. It’s currently one of the most popular places to stay in Kuta.

The entrance fee to the Mystical Neverland Bat Cave Lombok cost 60K IDR per person
Best time to visit
If you want to take photos with some intense light rays, the best time to visit would be when the sun is the highest in the sky. We visited at 12pm and found that the lighting was perfect.
What to expect at the Mystical Neverland Bat Cave Lombok
The Mystical neverland Bat Cave in Lombok is an incredible place and definitely one of the most memorable things we’ve seen on Lombok. As soon as you enter the cave you will hear all of the loud bats squawking. You’ll also see thousands of bats flying around to the right of the cave. Mystical Neverland Bat Cave Lombok is a photographers dream. The locals who own the spot have done a great job with knowing what people want in photos. They have built a beautiful wooden staircase which leads you down into the cave. They also burn old twigs and coconuts to enhance the intensity of the light rays with the smoke.
When you’re in the cave, it does get very hot and it’s hard to relax. The humidity inside the cave is insane. The thick clouds of smoke that are in the air make it hard to breathe and see. It’s definitely not a spot that you could spend hours at, although for the short time that you’re in there, it’s definitely worth the struggle.
When we went there was no one else around although this spot is sure to blow up and become one of the most popular attractions on Lombok.
