LOMBOK MARINE TOURISM


Welcome to Lombok Travel Online (LTO Tours), We provide all information about Lombok island marine tourism by detail below :

 

1. Senggigi Beach and Batu Bolong Beach

 

The Senggigi region is the main tourist destination on the island of Lombok in Indonesia. The main town is Senggigi itself, and the whole area is well known for its beautiful west facing beaches. The Senggigi region is formed by several adjacent yet subtly different areas all lying along the same 2 lane coastal road. The exact boundaries of each area can seem rather ill-defined. While pockets of development can be found in some areas, long stretches of open undeveloped land lie in between. Nightlife and major restaurants are concentrated in the central township of Senggigi. The first time visitor should be aware of these distinct regional differences. Simply booking a hotel in Senggigi could mean a relatively remote location where the town centre can only be reached by taxi or public transport.

 

Senggigi Beach

Batu Bolong Beach

 

Batu Bolong Beach

Located 9 km from downtown Mataram, this beach has a huge rock with a hole in it. It is an ideal place which to see the majestic sunset from Lombok Strait. After sunbathing, relaxing and frolicking on this beautiful beach-front, try to stay till the end of the day to watch one of the most stunning sunsets you have ever seen when the sun slowly begins to disappear behind Mount Agung with incredibly flaming colors. A Hindu temple lies on top facing the Lombok Strait and beyond is the contour of majestic Mount Agung of Bali. Colorful and musical religious ceremonies are often held in this beautiful temple.

 

2. Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air

 

The Gili Islands (Indonesian: Tiga Gili [Three Gilis], Kepulauan Gili [Gili Islands]) are an archipelago of three small islands or Gili island triplets (Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air), just off the northwest coast of Lombok, Indonesia.

The islands are a popular destination for tourists. Each island has several small resorts, usually consisting of a collection of huts for tourists, a small pool and restaurant. Most local inhabitants live on Trawangan in a township stretching along its east side just inland (which is also where most recent development is taking place). Automobiles and motorized traffic are prohibited on the islands by local ordinance, so the preferred method of transportation is by foot and bicycle or the horse-drawn carriage called a cidomo. Scuba diving and free diving in and around the Gilis is also popular due to the abundance of marine life and attractive coral formations. Most famous diving spots are Shark point, Manta point and Simon's reef

 

Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air

 

Arcing away from the northwest corner of Lombok, the Gili Islands are three idyllic atolls where the sand is still powdery white, the water a clear sparkling turquoise, and the sunsets over Bali’s Agung in the west simply spectacular.

Home to the largest Irish bar on the smallest island in the world, an authentic Japanese sushi restaurant, a turtle hatchery, ominous sounding dive sites like ‘Shark Point’ and miles and miles of white sandy beaches, Lombok’s Gilis, make a surprisingly ideal getaway destination. Getting there is easy and whichever way you chose, you will be guaranteed to see some of Bali and Lombok’s breathtaking scenery.
 

No motorized transport
Fortunately all three Gili Islands will not permit any type of motorized transport on them and therefore rely on bicycles or horse and carts, locally known as ‘Cidomos’. Bicycles can be rented from any of the kiosks and cost from around Rp20,000 an hour, or better value, ask for the daily rate. Cidomos (local horse and carts) are easily located all over the islands but tend to hang around the harbour and busy spots, arrangements can be made if you are staying in a more remote place on the island, for instance a late ride home…. Haggling is the norm, and always agree a price before your journey.

Families
Although originally discovered by backpackers in the mid eighties, and with a reputation as a party destination, the Gilis now boasts themselves as a great destination suitable for families of all ages. Various new hotels, luxury villas, and boutique bungalows now cater for children and offer good value, some have baby sitting services, and with lots of activities on the islands families are sure to enjoy their holidays to the full.

Swimming and Snorkeling
The best places for snorkeling and swimming are along the main beach areas,
Masks, fins and snorkels can be rented by the hour or day, from any of the 7 PADI and SSI dive centers or the kiosks in the street. Glass bottom boat trips around the three Gili islands are available and cost around IDR 150.000 per person. You can see all types of marine life just by snorkeling including many fishes and corals and of course lots of turtles, but please be careful not to touch the coral.

Please Note: Do not try to swim between any of the 3 Gili islands as the currents in the channel can be unpredictable and very strong.

Money matters
There is now an ATM machine at Hotel Villa Ombak on Gili Trawangan open 24 hours. All the dive centers and bigger hotels accept Visa and MasterCard credit cards with an additional 3% bank charge. Cash advances at 10% are available in many places. Money changers will cash traveler’s checks and currency but at a much lower reduced rate than on the mainland.

Electricity
All three Gilis islands do now have their own PLN electric generating stations and in theory should have power 24 hours a day. However in the peak seasons this can be put under strain particularly late afternoon and early evening. A large number of businesses now have their own generators such as the larger hotels and restaurants so as to avoid the problem. And usually power cuts or ‘mati lampu’ only last a few hours, although sometimes can last up to a few days.

Communication
There are a number of internet cafes on Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili air all charging approximately the same, (around IDR 500 per minute) although all operate at different speeds. For telephone calls the best place to use is the shops called Wartel. Located next to the art market on Trawangan, at the Ozzy shop on Meno, and behind Villa Karang on Gili Air.

Crime, safety and health
Generally there is very little crime on the Gili islands, however no where is 100% free of petty crime. As with any where in the world you travel its best to leave your valuables in your room, and ideally in your hotel safe. If you do have any problems on the island report them to the Head of the Island (Kepala Desa) at the Satgas office, located opposite the Harbour. There is a new 24 hours clinic at Hotel Vila Ombak on Gili Trawangan that has a doctor and nurse on call that can deal with minor injuries and problems, and can also dispense certain prescription drugs.

Water
Most businesses rely on well water for showers and bathrooms, some places are now importing fresh water from the mainland Lombok. Some hotels have the option of fresh water mandi after a well water shower. All fresh water is brought to the islands by small fishing boats from Lombok – in the unlikely event the water cannot timeously be delivered guests will need to use the well water. The delays can be due to the tides being to low and the delivery boat not being able to get over the reef or the seas being too rough.

So Please use the islands water resources sparingly!
If your holiday is planned and it is to revolve around fresh water & power please do not think about making a booking on any of the 3 islands as services are not guaranteed… The Gili islands are very much grass roots with really very little development…… This just will not be your type of holiday… Embrace simplicity as there are few places in this world that are easy to access, but where you can still have a remote experience.

The Wallace line
Sir Alfred Russel Wallace, the so-called father of animal geography, formulated his ideas on evolution by natural selection while observing and collecting wildlife in the islands of Southeast Asia. He was particularly impressed by the sudden difference in bird families he encountered when he sailed only twenty miles east of the island of Bali and landed on Lombok.

On Bali the birds were clearly related to those of the larger islands of Java and Sumatra and mainland Malaysia. On Lombok the birds were clearly related to those of New Guinea and Australia. He marked the channel between Bali and Lombok as the divide between two great zoo geographic regions, the Oriental and Australian.

In his honor this dividing line, which extends northwards between the islands of Borneo and Sulawesi, is still referred to today as Wallace’s Line.



3. Gili Nanggu and Gili Kedis


Gili Nanggu Lombok, When most of the people hear about the Gili islands in Indonesia, they probably think of the 3 famous Gili islands Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air in the northwest of Lombok. But did you know that there are many more Gili islands that are even more pretty and beautiful? A day trip to Gili Nanggu is like being transported to a completely different world, or at least a different Indonesia! No traffic, no crowds, and no vendors, but just unexploited nature and plenty of tropical fish. I recently visited Gili Nanggu, Gili Tangkong, Gili Kedis, and Gili Sudak. This post will introduce you to the paradise islands of Lombok!

 

Gili Nanggu Gili Kedis


Gili Nanggu is the most beautiful island of these four Gili’s. There is almost nothing going on. So far, I believe there is only one accommodation and one restaurant on the entire island. We did some snorkeling around Gili Nanggu and there was plenty of beautiful coral and colorful fish around. The beaches at Gili Nanggu are tropical white and you will find crystal clear blue water, where you can perfectly snorkel and swim. At Gili Nanggu we found more fish and coral than on the other Gili islands.

 

Gili Kedis is the tiniest island! It is probably not bigger than the size of a tennis court, and has the shape of a heart. You won’t find anything on the island, except from some trees in the middle. There are not so many fish around, but it is worth trying.

 

4. Kuta Beach and Tanjung A'an Beach

 

The best-known place on the south coast is Lombok's Kuta Beach (Sometime spelt 'Kute Beach'), a magnificent stretch of white sand and blue sea with rugged hills rising around it, but not much else. Plenty of good waves break on the reefs around here - many supposedly “Secret”. There are lefts and rights in the bay in front of Kuta, and some more on reefs east of Tanjung Aan. Local boatman will take you out for a few thousands rupiah. Go about seven km east of Kuta to fishing in Gerupuk village, where there are several potential breaks on the reefs at the entrance of Gerupuk Bay. Again access is by local fishing boat.

There's more breaks further east and west, from Blongas to Serewi. Also known as Putri Nyale Beach, Kuta on the south coast of central Lombok is one of the most scenic and unspoiled beaches in this part of Indonesia. From Kuta to Tanjung Aan five km away, it is an unbroken stretch of clean white sand on the Indian Ocean. It is safe for bathing and swimming. Further to the west are the surfers and wind surfer's beaches. Each year, on the 19th day of the tenth month of Sasak lunar calendar on February or March when Nyale fish come to the sea's surface, Kuta Beach is the site of great festivities. Fishermen sail out to sea while young men and women gather along the beach to join in the merrymaking, tease each other and perhaps meet to build a more lasting relationship.
 

Kuta Beach Lombok  Tanjung Aan Beach

 

Tanjung Aan Beach One of the beautiful beaches in south Lombok, Tanjung Aan Beach, the home of Princess Mandalika. The beach is facing the Indian Ocean with about 2 km stretched coastline. One thing that you will directly notice when you hit out feet on Tanjung Aan Beach is the sand. Unlike other Lombok beaches, the sand of this beach is like a pepper.

This beach is perfect for who are looking for a perfect beach to swim or snorkeling due to the smooth flowing wave with medium height. If you don’t bring your own equipment, you can get the high quality ones on the area. In the late afternoon, when the wave is getting high, Tanjung Aan Beach will be the rendezvous spot for surfers.

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. Around this lombok tourism, you will find some wooden umbrella with braided straw roof. This is one of the best ways to enjoy the beach; you can tan your skin and grab your coconut that you can buy there. You can also find rows of restaurants that serve various foods and beverages that can be enjoyed together with the magnificent view of Tanjung Aan Beach.

 

5. Mawun Beach

 

From many beaches in Lombok Island especially in the south side, many beaches which are still unpopular, though the condition are quite well. Many factors caused this thing, but the main thing is the inadequate infrastructure and the less clean condition. Mawun beach is included to this category. If it seen form beach’s source, Mawun beach is so worth it to be a beach tourism destination. The beach which is a part of a bay, has horse shoe shaped with two hills in the west and east side. Has the white sand and soft texture in the center side of the beach. While in the west side, the sand tends to be rougher and mixed with rocks splits. The middle side of the beach’s topography is also steeper than in the west and east side. The waves in the middle part of the beach is also stronger compared to those in west and east side. The middle side of the beach also contaminated by plastic rubbish which carried by the waves. Its understandable because the middle side of the beach is faced directly to the Indian ocean while the west and east side of the beach is blocked by hill.
 

Mawun Beach Lombok


beautiful at mawun beach Every day, the beach is visited by visitors, domestic and foreign as well though it’s not in large amount. Domestic visitors usually come in the morning and leave the beach before the sun gets too hot. On the contrary, the foreign visitors usually visit this beach when the sun is still so hot at noon. Besides swimming, they also lay down spending times by reading of self-portraying. If you want to visit this beach, choose the east and west side of the beach to do activities. Beside it clean, these two parts of the beach are gradually inclined and not too wavy. It also fit for kids to play. In Mawun beach, there are several activities you can do. From laying down doing sun bathing, walking along the beach till swimming. Especially for swimming, you need to be careful if you doing it in the middle part of the beach, because the topography of the bottom sea from beach’s land to the middle of the sea is quite steep. Besides, there are no lifeguards in here.

If you want a different activity, try to climb hills in the both tip side of the beach. Form up there; you could enjoy the wonderful view of Indian Ocean, the hills and the curved beach.

 

6. Selong Belanak Belanak

 

When you are talking about beach, then Lombok is serving the same beauty as Bali. Many tourists find Lombok more interesting because each of the beaches that can be found in Lombok tourism is having its own character and uniqueness. One of them is Selong Belanak Beach, it is quite a beautiful long beach with white sand.

Selong Belanak Beach can be said as one of the most prestigious beaches on Lombok tourism, especially when we are talking about the beauty and cleanliness of the beach. One of the best things about this beach is the shape of the shore that looks like a crescent. The beach is having a curvy shape with hills on each point. This beach is the part of Selong Belanak Bay that faces Indian Ocean. The length of the coastline is not less than 1 km. About a quarter part of the south side of the beach is used by local people as village. There are about 40 families who work as fishermen there. Of course, the area is not recommended for swimming because there are so many fishing boats rest there. If you want to do water sport, it is recommended to do the activities from the central to the north side of the beach. The area is free from local people’s activities. Local and international tourists are able to use the area for beach and water activities. Selong Belanak Beach has the glittering soft white sand and sloping contour. The wave is not so high and the water is perfectly clean.
 

Selong Belanak Beach


selong belanak beach with such beach condition, you are able to do various activities. You can just relax on the white sand, exploring the beach, sunbathing, swimming and many others. You can also go fishing by renting a small fishing boat from the local fishermen or if you are interested in the local people’s life, you can simply observe they way they live like how the children taking up water for the every day need, fishermen fixing their boats, the fishermen’s wives making sate from their husbands’ catch and many others.

Even though this beach is so popular, but when we compare it to other beaches, the beach is relatively tranquil, you will only find some tourists spending their time on the beach. The beach will be so crowded during the holiday season. Therefore, if you are looking for a beach that allows you to relax and enjoy silence, this beach is highly recommended.

This beach is not crowded, but we don’t have to worry about the facilities because we can find so many warung near the fishermen’s village. You can also find fish sate there. If you want to stay overnight, you can rent a villa in the area.
