photo processors, money changers, souvenir shop and a range
of accommodations starting from budget guest house to 5 star
hotels. Restaurants and small cafes line the colorful main
beach road. Swimming off the beach is safe.
town of Senggigi spreads out along nearly 10 kilometers of coastal
road. This road continues north to Bangsal, port for the Gili
Islands. Along the way, a fantastic scenery of the north west coast
of Lombok awaits. Most travelers start or end their stay at Senggigi
because of the easy access to Mataram Airport and
accommodations options are available to all budgets. If you
are frugal or intrepid and take the slow ferry from Bali,
it's best to arrange transport in advance from the ferry
dock to Senggigi, since the dock on the Lombok side is in a
remote spot several kilometers south of Mataram.
There are plenty of activities you can
do to complete your holiday. Sightseeing or touring organized by
reputable local tour operators is the best option to discover what
Lombok has to offer. Renting a car or motor cycle is also good
alternative to get around, either self-driving, or with a driver so
you can relax and enjoy the view. Car rental in Lombok is more
expensive than Bali. Tip driver pocket money for meals if you stop
for lunch or diner. If you are pleased with service, tip the driver
or local guide at the end. If you collide with anything, or it
collides with you, you are responsible for all costs
