THE BEST BEACHES IN LOMBOK – THE ULTIMATE GUIDE

THE BEST BEACHES IN LOMBOK – THE ULTIMATE GUIDE

The majority of the best beaches in Lombok are found in the far south of the island in Kuta Lombok. These beaches are among some of the most untouched and pristine beaches I have discovered in Indonesia. Here is an easy guide for how to get there and what to expect!

HOW TO GET TO KUTA LOMBOK

The most convenient way to reach Kuta Lombok is by plane. Direct flights to Kuta Lombok from Bali, for example, costs around $30. From Lombok Airport a taxi will cost you no more than 100,000 Rupiah and it takes 45-minutes to reach Kuta Lombok.

If you are coming from the north after a Mt. Rinjani Trek, you can organise a driver and a van for the day which costs around 700,00 Rupiah. The drive from the north to the south is 3-hours drive direct. My friends and I stopped into Central Lombok to visit some waterfalls which I highly recommend on your way through.

GETTING AROUND KUTA LOMBOK

I spent 3 days in Kuta Lombok exploring along the pristine coastline both east and west from the central hub. It is as easy as renting a scooter for IDR 50,000 per day and choosing which direction to drive in! There are plenty of surf breaks to choose from and many surfboard rental shops in town that can sort you out if you are willing to get some waves. Be sure to rent a board from in town as there are no rental stores at the beaches.

SEGER BEACH (PANTAI) 

Seger Beach is only a 10 min ride from the centre of town. This beach is a great spot for a swim and a cold coconut from one of the beachside warungs… a great spot to chill as you watch the world go by.

SEGER POINT BEACH 

Just over the headland is a popular surf spot, Seger Point. You can either ride around to the car park and pay a parking fee or take a short walk up and over the hill, through some cow paddocks and make your way down to the beach. Straw huts line the water’s edge where you can perch up to gaze out over the ocean or paddle out to score some waves.

BUKIT MERESE HILL 

Jump back on your bike and drive another 5-10 mins east to Bukit Merese, a popular sunset point with rolling hills and several small beaches and coves.

TANJUNG AAN BEACH 

After exploring Bukit Merese Hill, you can head east again on the bike for 2-minutes to a long stretch of white sand beach called Tanjung Aan. This beach looks like something you would see on a postcard.

GERUPUK BEACH 

Further on from Tanjung Aan you can find Gerupuk Surf Beach, one of the most popular spots to surf. The surf breaks are quite far out to sea and you will have to organise a boat to take you out to the breaks. This can be easily done through any of the friendly local surf guides at the harbour.

PANTAI BILASAYAK & PANTAI TELUK UJUNG 

Continuing on from here to find 2 beaches called Pantai Bilasayak and Pantai Teluk Ujung. This is a 30-minute drive from Gerupuk or a 1-hour drive from Kuta Lombok. This spot was quite difficult to find though with the assistance of google maps you should have no dramas.

These beaches are part of an environmental park and it wasn’t until we arrived that we found this out. The entrance fee is a steep 100,000 Rupiah ($10) per person, but we arrived late afternoon and haggled the gatekeeper down $10 for the 4 of us.

To get to Pantai Bilasayak, take the dirt road to the left when you pass through the entrance gates, and follow it right to the end until you reach the ocean. This beach was deserted when we were there and a great spot for a swim on high tide. If you are seeking an adrenaline rush try to spot the “lookout tower” on top of the cliffs in the distance. To get to the tower, park your bike on the beach and trek for 10 mins along the rugged cliffs till you reach the tower. It is very rusty and sketchy but if you are an adrenaline junkie like myself it is worth the climb. The view from the top is spectacular.

Head back on the same dirt track towards the entrance and before exiting take the dirt road that leads to the left. This track leads down to Pantai Teluk Ujung, another deserted beach with rock pools and an awesome spot to watch the sunset.

KUTA LOMBOK BEACHES TO THE WEST

The drive to the west of Kuta Lombok is one hell of a scenic road along the coast. Passing farmlands and coconut plantations that hug the pristine coastline. It’s a 1-hour drive to 3 epic beaches that we spent a full day exploring. A freelance local tour guide Zilmi Zola joined us on our adventures and showed us some unreal locations.

PANTAI TELAWAS 

Pantai Telawas is a tucked away paradise with several coves, blow holes, caves and cliff jumps. We spent some time here in awe of the beauty that surrounded us.

PANTAI SEMETI BEACH – KUTA LOMBOK

Within walking distance from Pantai Telawas is yet another slice of paradise. Pantai Semeti Beach will blow you away with its crystal clear water and blinding white sand. There were some small waves breaking over the reef here so we went for a body surf and then took some shade under the palm trees out of the scorching sun.

MAWI BEACH – KUTA LOMBOK

On the other side of the headland is Mawi Beach… a favourite location of mine being a surfer! The waves here are as good as it gets when the conditions are right. The tropical beach vibes here are on point – with small bamboo huts and surrounding coconut trees, you’ll sure be in for a treat.
