Lombok´s unique beach based festival. Bau Nyale litearlly means catching the sea worms. Yes really! This rather unusual celebration is practiced once each year by the local Sasak people as it´s the only time these worms surface. It is believed these are not just regular worms, that if respected they will bring prosperity. Alongside the rather unique ritual of worm catching, which incidentally tourists are free to join, there are also local parades, horse racing and music. So if you love the beach and fancy your chances at worm catching, this is your festival!
