Lombok Beaches are some of the most untouched and pristine beaches I have discovered in Indonesia. Kuta Lombok is a tourist region on the very southern coast of Lombok Island with many beach resorts, markets, restaurants, cafes, bars, surf beaches and more!

I have put together this guide of the Best Beaches In Lombok including where to find them, how to get around and where to stay in Kuta Lombok!

 

Have you got travel insurance for Lombok? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. 

 

KUTA LOMBOK BEACHES TO THE EAST

 

SEGER BEACH

Seger Beach is only a 10-minute ride on a scooter from the center of Kuta Lombok town. Pantai Seger is a great spot for a swim and a cold coconut from one of the beachside warungs.

Seger beach is one of the best beaches in Lombok and a great spot to beach bum, go swimming in the cool waters and marvel at tropical paradise surroundings.

SEGER POINT BEACH

Just over the headland from Seger Beach, is a popular surf spot called Seger Point.

You can either ride your scooter around the hillside to Seger Point and pay a parking fee of 5,000 rupiah or take a short walk up and over the hill through some cow paddocks and make your way down to Seger Point this way.

Straw huts line the water’s edge on this beautiful Kuta Lombok beach making it a perfect spot to perch up and gaze out over the ocean or paddle out on a surfboard to score some waves.

TANJUNG AAN BEACH 

After exploring Seger Point Beach, you can head east again on the bike for 2 minutes to where you’ll find a long stretch of white sand beach called Tanjung Aan.

Tanjung Aan Beach looks like something you would see on a postcard and it’s one of the best beaches in Lombok worthy of checking out!

BUKIT MERESE 

Jump back on your scooter and drive another 5 to 10 minutes east from Tanjung Aan Beach to find Bukit Merese, one of the most popular Lombok Beaches and the best spot to watch the sunset!

There is a carpark at the base of the hill and the parking fee is 5,000 Rupiah. If you like, you can buy beer, snacks and water from one of the many mobile vendors in the carpark.

The walk up to the viewpoint takes around 5-minutes to where you will see Bukit Merese’s idyllic features of rolling hills and several small beaches and coves.

At the top, it’s a matter of picking your own headland to perch yourself on to watch the sunset. The most popular spot is where most of the crowd will be, standing around a dead tree on the edge of the cliff.

We decided to walk for a little longer to a headland that reaches right out over the ocean and we had a grassy patch all to ourselves. The sky put on an incredible show for us displaying soft pinks and blues to then bright oranges and burning reds!

GERUPUK BEACH

Further on from Tanjung Aan you can find Gerupuk Surf Beach, one of the most popular surf spots in Kuta Lombok.

The surf breaks are quite far out off the coast and you will have to organise a boat to take you out to surf these breaks at Gerupuk Beach. This can be easily organised through any of the friendly local surf guides at the harbor.

PANTAI BILASAYAK & PANTAI TELUK UJUNG 

Continuing on from Gerupuk you can find two more of the best beaches in Lombok called Pantai Bilasayak and Pantai Teluk Ujung.

Pantai Bilasayak 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 two locations are well off the beaten track and definitely worth adding it to your list of Lombok beaches to check out.

Pantai Bilasayak and Pantai Teluk Ujung are part of an environmental park and it wasn’t until we arrived that we found this out. The entrance fee is 100,000 Rupiah per person, but we arrived late afternoon and haggled the gatekeeper down to 100,000 Rupiah for the four 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 and overlooks more undiscovered Kuta Lombok beaches down the east coast.

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 Lombok beaches to the west of town is one hell of a scenic road along the southern coast, passing farmlands and coconut plantations that hug the pristine coastline. It’s about a 1-hour drive to discover three of the best beaches in Lombok that you can spend a full day exploring.

 

PANTAI TELAWAS 

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

Exploring Telawas Beach was one of the best adventures we had while on the hunt for the best beaches in Lombok.

PANTAI SEMETI BEACH

Within walking distance from Pantai Telawas is yet another secluded Lombok beach. 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 along the beach to get out of the scorching sun.

MAWI BEACH

On the other side of the headland from Pantai Semeti Beach is Mawi Beach and one of my favorite beaches in Lombok, especially being a surfer!

The waves here are as good as it gets when the conditions are right. The tropical beach vibes here at Mawi Beach are on point with small bamboo huts and surrounding coconut trees, you’ll surely be in for a treat.

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 is a 45-minute drive to reach Kuta Lombok.

Search All ∼ Flights to Lombok on Skyscanner.com

If you are coming from the north of Lombok after trekking Mount Rinjani, 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 around 3-hours. However, we stopped into Central Lombok to visit some waterfalls, so the journey took us an entire day but I highly recommend visiting these waterfalls on your way through.

 

LOMBOK BEACHES – GETTING AROUND

I spent 3 days in Kuta Lombok exploring along pristine coastline both east and west from the central hub, seeking out the best beaches in Lombok.

It’s 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 Kuta Lombok Beaches.
