Your guide to South Lombok’s best beaches

Lombok is known for some of the worlds most beautiful nature and astonishing beaches we have compiled below a list of our favourite spots all a short distance from the villa.

The Villa Amani is perfectly located in KUTA Lombok which allows for the best access to all of South Lombok’s beaches and beauty spots.

Segar Beach
This speech is good for intermediate to experience surfers and is a great place to marvel at the surrounding scenery and very popular to watch the sunset.

Certain sections of this beach are okay for swimming when the tide is high but generally it is quite rocky.

It is easily accessible from the town of Kuta and along the main beach are a number of small restaurants and bars.

Novotel Beach
A great option for families or just chilling out the beach in front of the Novotel is a very flat lagoon with no swell at all so perfect for children or just relaxing.  Due to the fact that it is on the rivermouth the water is not particularly clean but nonetheless it is a nice place to get a cabana and relax for the day.

You can usually buy a pass for the day or the week from the Novotel where are you can use all of their facilities and get a discount on food and beverage.

Tanjung Ann
A must see in Lombok and one of our favourites, this white sand horseshoe beach with views of the Bukit Merese is truly world class.  A great place for beginner surfers and longboards you can rent boats or instructors from one of the many beach cafes to take you out to the breaks around 500 metres offshore.

Warung Turtle is our favourite spot for relaxing with a coconut or beer and the seafood is also very good here, sometimes if you want lobsters and prawns its best to book in advance.

Kuta Mandalika
The local Kuta Beach that has been redeveloped by the government is a long white sand beach with large walking path, toilets and facilities lining the beachfront. It’s a good place to swim as there are no currents and although the development is quite new once it grows out I’m sure it will be a popular place due to its proximity to town. It’s popular with kite surfers and kayakers due to the lagoon nature of the beachfront.

A little way up from Selong Belanak this less known beach is also idyllic and varying on swell conditions allows you to paddle.  It is a good wave for surfing and even beginner groups do go there however there is a lot of current so best to go with a guide or instructor.  Segara resort is our pick to hang out next to the pool, enjoy some food and soak up the sun.

Great in the dry season and caters for the experienced surfer,  somewhat secluded and not a lot with regards to food and drinks other than basic noodles and soft drinks.  Nice drive to access through the hills and forest areas of the forestry areas, we wouldn’t recommend swimming due to the strong currents and isolated location.
