“beautiful Tanjung Aan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

After travelling down a bumpy winding road we reached the most beauiful bay with pristine crystal clear waters, tropical fish and a wonderful meddow of sea-grass.

Incredibly, this is one place in Indonesia that is not covered in plastic waste... hopefully the people of Lombok can keep it that way.

“Visiting Lombok? This beach must be on your top list”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

I Agree, this beach is one of the best beach in Lombok, and in Indonesia. The view is fantastic, the sand was nice.

I arrived at the beach on 3 pm. The weather was nice, not too hot. And the beach was perfect, almost no wave. I could swim and float my body. So relaxing....

I hope the local government do something to improve the facilities in this fantastic beach. But please, please..... do not do it too much as they did to beaches in Bali. Keep Tanjung Aan humble, clean, and memorable.

We loved this pristine beach, as much for its feeling of remoteness when we were there at the beginning of July. Only 20 mins from the Novotel the sand was pure white, the water crystal clear and a balmy 26 degrees in!

“Best beach in Lombok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

I have been to Senggigi beach, Kuta Beach and the beaches on Gili Air but this beach is the BEST!

The awesome:
1) Soft powdery sand that is so comfortable to walk on
2) Little/no hard coral to cut you
3) The beach is gently sloping so you can walk all the way out in waist deep CLEAR waters
4) If you hate getting seaweed tangled around your limbs like me, certain parts of the beach are seaweed FREE.
5) Little tourists (we counted less than 10 tourists in the entire 2km of beach but many locals at the main beach area)
6) Little or no selling of trinklets/items by locals for obvious reasons
7) Waves that aren't too strong yet fun to play in

The Meh:
1) Well as expected of a secluded and hidden-non-touristy beach, it's difficult to get to. The roads there aren't always developed and you need an experienced taxi driver to get you there.

You're most likely staying at the main Senggigi area and this beach is a 2-3 hour drive away (approximately 480, 000 Rp for a return trip which includes a 3-4 hour wait by the driver) but definitely worth visiting.

Some points to note:
1) PLEASE get your driver to wait for you. It isn't very expensive (~20, 000 Rp/hr of waiting) and you don't have to get stranded once you're done with your fun. Don't worry, the drivers prefer waiting for you instead of making a trip back to Senggigi passenger-less. Just remember to provide your driver with some snacks and water while he waits =)
2) Please do not spread tanning lotions/oil/sun-block and jump into the waters. The beach is rather clean except for some sea trash (but seriously there're no beaches in the world that're absolutely trash-free are there?). It's ok to use sun-block and lotions but please try to maintain the cleanliness of the waters.
3) Please note that there are little/no amenities or food within walking distance. I understand that there's a restaurant somewhere along the beach but have not tried and not sure if it's open for business. Recommended to bring your own meals/drinks.
4) The closest hotel is the Novotel (for now) and I understand from the cab driver that the entire area nearby is being earmarked for the Mandalika Project. I did some research and the bulk of the project will only be ready in 4-6 years so try to head down to the area before it gets overly commercialised/touristy.

**If you need a trustworthy cab driver who can _converse_ in English (not all Bluebird taxi drivers are fluent in English), please contact me and I will provide the necessary information.
