Senggigi sits in the west of Lombok and is a hub for tourism and beachside living. Restaurants and bars are scattered throughout the town, stretching across an expansive area, and there is no clear definition around where Senggigi starts and ends. If you opt to stay in the heart of Senggigi, be mindful that it isn't a resort town, yet still provides enough entertainment and restaurants to keep travellers occupied.
Senggigi is often used as a base to explore surrounding areas, acting as a gateway to the Gili Islands with many travellers passing through. From beachfront resorts to quaint villas, accommodation options in the area are vast, and the distinction between town varies greatly. Mangsit sits north of Senggigi and provides a strip of hotels overlooking the beach, while Batu Bolong lies south of Senggigi and brings a mix of restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels to enjoy.

On the rocks nearby to Senggigi Beach, you will find Batu Bolong Temple standing tall, residing 12 kilometres from Mataram city. Sitting above the black rock of Senggigi Beach, the temple brings incredible beauty overlooking the sea. This sacred site for Hindu’s is a building of worship. From here, you can hear waves crashing, and enjoy a beautiful sea breeze flowing through. The rock under the temples has carved a natural hole, which is where the name Batu Bolong comes from (rock with a hole). This temple is one of Indonesia’s most scenic Hindu temples, while it is modest in size, the incredible views make it worthwhile to visit. If you begin your journey at Senggigi Beach, follow the sea-ledge path which will lead you onto the temple. Dress modestly with your legs covered, and you will need to wear a sash too.
On arrival, you will be greeted by two main temples. The first sits under a leafy tree, while the second sits on a low lying rock that sometimes can verge closely on to the waves. In total, fourteen pagodas stand tall over the rocks. On a clear day, you will be able to see Mount Agung in the distance, and if you stay until the late afternoon, watch the colours fill the sky at sunset. In the area close by there are many accommodation options as well as facilities, making it easy to visit Batu Bolong Temple. During your visit witness panoramic views across Senggigi Beach and learn about Batu Bolong Temple, as a stunning place of worship.
Senggigi Beach connects on to the port for the Gili Islands and in the dry season boats moor onto the beach. The beach has many swimming areas as well as different breaks for surfers. Marine life is present in the area too, and canoeing is a popular activity for visitors.
The town of Senggigi used to be the main tourist strip in Lombok. Nowadays it isn't as popular for travellers, with many opting to visit Kuta in the south or the Gili's instead. Surrounded by sweeping bays and beaches, Senggigi Beach is made up of white sand, sprawling out onto the coral reef. Depending on the time of year you visit, the sand colour changes and can be affected by the boats as well as the season.
With many accommodation options nearby from homestays to more extravagant options, you will find even more luxury stays in the north around Mangsit.
The best time to visit is at dusk to enjoy the view from the beach or one of the many restaurants lining the water. The outlook across the water showcases Bali and Nusa Penida in the distance, and at sunset, the light outlines the island's frame.
In the area, there is a mix of Western-style dining as well as Indonesian warungs to grab a bite to eat at, with barbecued corn available across the headland (popular street food in Indonesia). Senggigi is a favourite for locals, and on a Sunday you will notice the crowds pick up.
Senggigi Beach is a comfortable place to stop through on your journey to the Gili's. With its choice of restaurants lining the water, spend a day relaxing in the sun.
