Tanjung sits on the northwest coast of Lombok and means “cape” in Indonesian. This destination is quickly starting to thrive as a tourist hub, with five resorts in the area and many new villas opening too. When it comes to dining, the resorts provide a mix of both Indonesian and international cuisines to enjoy. Visit the temples nearby to learn about local culture, or explore the town’s traditional produce market. Tanjung is about one and a half hours to Mataram City.

During your holiday, make the most of Sire Beach or Lokok Piko Beach for a relaxing day by the water, or explore the many waterfalls across North Lombok like Sendang Gile or Tiu Kelep. The region also is a great place to stop for those wanting to visit the Gili Islands while being close by to the port.
