Senggigi Beach is the prominent strip of beachfront and reigning tourist destination on the island of Lombok, Indonesia. The area persists just north of the capital city Mataram. Recent developments are creating a growing population of crowds to the area,but the natural beauty of the coastline against the backdrop of the wild jungles remains unspoilt.
The Senggigi Beach area offers wide expanses of sand between and amongst resorts along a sweeping bay and a retained local feel exemplified by many touts and beach vendors. Sightseeing and touring are the most popular activities along the beachfront area and there is also some opportunity for surfing. Senggigi Beach is most famous for its oceanview dining and lavish red sunsets. A few of the most popular restaurants include Coco Beach, Cafe Tenda Cak Poer, and Spice, offering traditional Indonesian cuisine.
Transportation by taxi is the primary form of transportation from the nearby Bandara International Lombok Airport. Bus services also route between the airport and the beach. Bemos are the most popular way of getting around the Senggigi area.
Senggigi is home to an important Hindu temple called Pura Batu Bolong. The site consists of 14 altars right on the beach and is frequented by many local worshippers.
