Beach In Lombok
Tanjung Aan Beach faces the Indian Ocean. It’s perfect whether you want to have fun on the beach or in the water. The white sand is very fine, almost like pepper, with space to lie out in the sun.
For much of the day, the waves aren’t that big, fine for swimming or snorkeling. Wave action picks up in the afternoon, bringing the surfers out. There’s an outlook in the hills behind Tanjung where you view the beach.
Every February the beach celebrates Bau Nyale, a ritual that commemorates a princess who jumped into the ocean rather than marry.
Selong Belanak Beach is a long curvy stretch of sunset beach surrounded by green hills and bordered by the enchanting sea that reflects a thousand shades of blue.
At the same time, the rural life of the Lombok people continues steadily with fishermen going out to sea and farmers taking their buffaloes out to sea.
Outlandish, picturesque pink beach that look like they are straight out of a fantasy movie. Pink Sand is a result of the tiny red organism that grows on the dead coral reefs.
The best time to go is before 8 am and after 4 pm when the sand catches the morning sunrays, presenting a nature fascia of grandeur.
The condition of the road can make the trip challenging. If you don’t want to ride on the bumpy road, you can rent a boat at Telong-Elong (village nearby).
Almost everybody who travels or wants to travel to Lombok (or Bali) probably won’t miss the 3 famous islands Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. Most of the tourists even go there directly WITHOUT a stay on Lombok.
Nevertheless, you will find there many beautiful beaches – especially on Gili Meno. But only the fewest know that around Lombok there are many more Gili Islands and some of them are even totally unspoiled! Especially in the southwest of Lombok but also in the east.
Most of the islands are located near the peninsula of Sekotong, which by the way also has nice beaches to offer. One of these Gili Islands is for example Gili Nanggu. And there are also Gili Sudak, Gili Kedis, Gili Kondo, Gili Gede and many more around Lombok.
North of Senggigi you can find some more beautiful and calmer beaches than Senggigi itself – one of them is Pantai Pandanan.
Hardly you will find tourists here, most of the time you meet only locals that usually come to this beach at late afternoon or just before sunset.
