Senggigi is an area that consists of fine beaches and a range of tourist facilities and accommodations. Senggigi is famous for its beautiful sunset over the Lombok Strait, which you can enjoy from the beach, beachfront restaurants or from a nearby sea temple. Sengigi is situated north of Mataram, West Lombok.
The Senggigi region is the main tourist strip of Lombok, stretched out along nearly 30 kilometers of beachfront just to the north of the capital Mataram.
Senggigi Beach is a spit of sand stretching out from central Senggigi, this is Senggigi's raison d'etre but, by Indonesian standards, it's not all that spectacular. The beach is a little dirty, the hawkers are a nuisance and the Senggigi Beach Resort has grabbed most of the land. Some local surfers brave the smallish waves.
Senggigi is a popular launch point for other activities on Lombok. Without the hassle of Mataram, you can visit several other locations and come back to the same hotel each night. _________________ Shenandoah bed and breakfast
