The Senggigi area is the main tourist destination on the island, well known for its beautiful west facing beaches.
Nightlife and major restaurants are concentrated in the central town of Senggigi.

Lombok, Bali's beautiful next-door neighbour, begins to receive the attention she deserves and entices the more adventurous travellers who have, perhaps, already explored Bali and are hungry to journey further afield in a protected nature.
Although there are only 35 km of sea between these two islands, the physical and cultural distinctions are considerable. Towering mountains, mighty waterfalls, pristine white-sand beaches, magnificent coral reefs, pearl encrusted shores and a unique and endearing Sasak culture are among Lombok's many charms, that the scarcity of tourists allows to enjoy in the most perfect tranquility.
A visit to Lombok is an opportunity to explore a natural paradise, trek the Rinjani National Park, enjoy some fantastic diving and snorkeling, surf some of the best waves in Indonesia, and encounter a traditional, rural way of life exposing a fascinating integration of Muslim and Hindu cultures.
The beaches in Lombok are beautiful. The roller-coaster road hugs the dramatic coastline around cool coconut groves, sweeping bays and towering headlands.
Although there are a few luxury hotels and villas in the area north of Senggigi, huge expanses of Lombok's shores are totally undeveloped with just a few small villages dotted inland and gorgeous beaches, festooned with candy-coloured jukungs (traditional canoe-shaped fishing vessels crafted from a single hollowed out tree trunk, with bamboo outriggers and a distinctive prow decorated and shaped like a marlin's head).
Some of the island's most spectacular coastal scenery can be found on the southern shores. Windswept sandy beaches and picturesque bays are separated by headlands and awesome rocky outcrops. The glorious crescent-shaped beaches of Lombok's Kuta (often confused with Bali's Kuta) and Tanjung Aan are famous for their surf breaks, and for their shallow pools of turquoise water when the tide is out.
