Selong Belanek Beach brings its very own character to Lombok. Set 30 minutes by car from Kuta, it can be easily accessed and is a scenic day trip. Home to white sand and turquoise water, Selong Belanak Beach is shaped like a crescent with hills sitting on each side. The beach forms part of Selong Belanak Bay, and the coastline is about one kilometre in total.
A local village sits on one side where the families work as fishermen. It is also a popular destination for those wanting to learn how to surf with its gentle waves and wide stretch of beach. Locals provide surf lessons for visitors to enjoy the waves, to help you build confidence and stand up. While the beach is still popular, compared to other surrounding beaches, it is one of the quieter shorelines.
Whether you sunbake, go for a walk along the coastline or swim, a visit to beautiful Selong Belanak Beach is a relaxing way to spend the day.
There are a choice of villas in the area should you wish to stay nearby. Otherwise, on the journey to the beach, stop to encounter the stunning view across the bay with sparkling ocean and soft white sand below. With many local restaurants lining the beach, spend your day relaxing by the water and taking in Lombok’s tranquil atmosphere at Selong Belanak Beach.
