Ekas is a village in southeast Lombok on the eastern shore of Awang Bay. The road that passes through the town crosses low-lying coastal hills, which are full of salt ponds. There are also litters of seaweed in the region, which makes for an interesting scenery. If you are interested in visiting Awang or Batu Nampar, there are hired motor canoes at Ekas.
