Location :: Kuta Beach, Lombok
Hi there everyone, how's so far, here i come again with my new post up on my blog. Now i will write a little bit about my trip to Lombok Island.
As we all know that Lombok Island Indonesia has so many stunning beaches, moreover on the south coast.
Some of the beaches that should be in your trip list are Kuta Beach Lombok & Tanjung Aan Beach.
If you have ever visited / know about Kuta Beach In Bali, well you have to take a look or check about Kuta Beach in Lombok. They both are beautiful, but for me For me Kuta Beach Lombok is way more beautiful than Kuta Beach In Bali. I love the colour of its water. Love love it.
Kuta Beach Lombok, is a very beautiful beach with the super soft, white and warm sands. I love the blue & green colour of its water. This beach is a nice beach to having a swim, seeking shells, snorkeling or just for enjoying walking on the sands.
If you are staying at Mataram ( like i do ), the capital of West Nusa Tenggara Province in Lombok Island, you need to drive about 72 KM or about 90 minutes, so i recommended you to rent a car or join a tour. Because it's quite difficult to use public transportation there.
Before you reach Kuta Beach, you will pass Sade Village, the traditional village of Sasak Tribe, the host of Lombok island. They have beautiful traditional woven fabric, so make sure to stop by.
After you visit Kuta Beach, you also can visit some beautiful beaches around such as Selong Belanak Beach, Mawun Beach or Tanjung Aan Beach. Kuta Beach Lombok is a very famous beach in Lombok, so it's easy to find the beach and also there are some hotels around the beach.
Note : there are many local kids who selling their handicrafts, maybe it will a bit annoying, but please don't get upset. If you are not interesting to buy, than say it politely, don't try to look the things they sell. If you look, than you better buy one thing :))
Location :: Tanjung Aan Beach
Well after Kuta Beach, i visited Tanjung Aan Beach because it's close. Tanjung Aan Beach also called as the Home of Princess Mandalika ( the name of the local tale ). One thing that you will directly notice when you hit out your feet on Tanjung Aan beach is the sand. Unlike other Lombok beaches, the sand of this beach is like pepper. It's very beautiful. I even take it and put it in an empty mineral water bottle and bring it home :D
Tanjung Aan Beach is surrounded by some hills and you can get easy access to the hills to see Tanjung aan beach from the higher level.
When i standing in one of the hill, i don't want to go down, i can spent hours to see the stunning view.
Because of this is my very short trip, i make sure that i'll be back soon to explore more and share with you all again.
Hope you enjoy it and have a great time !
- - Come to Kuta Beach before going to other beaches nearby
- - If you visit Kuta Beach with a rented vehicle and do not intend to stay in hotel or resort around, please back home before 06.00 pm for your safety
- - Always bring sunblock to prevent sunburn and a hat to cover your hat ( i'm not wearing hat because it's a bit cloudy at that day )
- - If you want to surfing, do it in July-August. All that time, the waves were in deal condition to surfing.
- - Please keep the beach clean.
