Beaches and surfing

There are many different beaches and surfing spots for all levels in Lombok. We can help to arrange surf lessons or a surf guide during your stay. 

SEGAR BEACH (10 MINUTE DRIVE)

Best for experienced surfers and those that enjoy watching the surf.

For surfers, the right hand break caters more for intermediate / advanced surfers. The left hander is more mellow. The wave is best in wet season.

For the non-surfers, there’s plenty of beanbag chill out spots. It’s a nice place for sunset. Swimming is possible when the swell is small – take care on bigger days.

TANJUNG AAN (15 MINUTE DRIVE)

Best for swimming and relaxing.

Beautiful horseshoe shaped bay perfect for little ones. Easy to spend the whole day here with lots of local cafes, sunloungers and shaded spots. There is a hillside you can walk up for great sunset views.

For surfing at Tanjung Aan, on smaller days it’s perfect for beginners and longboards. When it gets big, it gets pretty heavy so check conditions. Best at a mid tide. Sharp reef so not suitable for surfing at low tide.

MAWUN Beach (15 minute drive)

Best for swimming and relaxing.

A beautiful bay perfect for swimming or walking. There isn’t much shade here so perfect for the sun worshippers 

SELONG BELANAK (25 MINUTE DRIVE)

Best for swimming, relaxing and taking your first wave.

A beautiful bay for swimming and chilling, or for taking your first wave. There are warung style restaurants on the beach. It’s possible to hire soft top boards there or get a surf lesson. 

GERUPUK BAY (20 MINUTE DRIVE)

Surfing bay perfect for all levels

5 surf spots located within the bay, about a 20 minute drive from Kuta. Caters for all levels, depending on the conditions. Surf spots are accessed via boat. We can help you to arrange a boat captain / surf guide in advance.

ARE GULING (15 MINUTE DRIVE)

Surf spot for experienced surfers.

Caters more for intermediate / advanced surfers. 15 minute drive along Jalan Mawun. Best in wet season. There are a couple of small warungs (hut-style restaurants) serving coconuts and nasi goreng for some post surf fuel.  

MAWI (25 MINUTE DRIVE)

Surf spot for experienced surfers.

Caters more for intermediate / advanced surfers as there can be strong rips. 25 minute drive along Jalan Mawun, last part of the drive is bumpy. Best in dry season.

It’s a beautiful bay to visit but there can be strong rips, so we wouldn’t recommend swimming here unless you stay close to the shore. Coconuts and fried rice available on the beach.

EKAS (30 MINUTE DRIVE THEN 40 MINUTE BOAT)

Surfing day trip.

There are two breaks at Ekas. Insides Ekas, a fun longboard style left and right hander. Needs a lot of swell to work. And Outside Ekas, a heavier more challenging left hander wave for more advanced surfers. Best at mid – high tide.

DAY TRIPS AND TOURS

Lombok has a little bit of everything including:

  • Stunning white sandy beaches, great for swimming and relaxing (Selong Belanak and Tanjung Aan are our favourites.)
  • Beautiful rice terraces and traditional villages. Our favourite village trips are to Tetebatu (for rice terraces) and Banyumulek (for pottery.)
  • Waterfalls, mountains, hiking, monkey forests and camping.
