Another beautiful beach from Indonesia!
From Makassar, now we move to Lombok Island, West Nusa Tenggara province.
Senggigi, which is in Lombok island, is located next to Bali. So, if you were in Bali, you can directly cross to Senggigi beach through the Karang Asem port using ferry, it takes about 30 minutes to get there.
Well, what you usually do when you’re on the beach? Swimming, diving, snorkeling, play with water, making the sand castle, sunbathing, or maybe you can just take a walk in here, especially in the afternoon, strolling down the beach. Suggestion for you who want to go swimming or just play with water, to be more careful because there are pointy rocks at the beach.
When you strolling down at Senggigi beach, about 30 minutes, you will find Pura Batu Bolong which is built on the rock at the beach. According to the legend, long time ago, often held a sacrifice of the virgin in pura to serve the shark who live on the beach. Another legend said, pura also a place for a girl who commit suicide because of a broken heart.
How to get to Senggigi if you are not in Bali? There are flight from Jakarta, Surabaya, Bali and Yogyakarta that will get you to Selaparang airport in Mataram. Senggigi is located 11 km from Mataram and you can take taxi or another public transportation.
