SURF AT SELONG
Selong Belanak Beach is a picture postcard tropical getaway. Selong Belanak Beach is located in a half moon bay with a thick strip of golden sand that stretches as far as the horizon. Coconut trees and sun loungers line the edge of the beach. You can buy fresh coconuts and rent surfboards from the small stalls that line the edge of the beach. It is one of the most popular Lombok surf beaches.
Dusun Rambitan is a traditional Sasak village. The traditional homes in Dusun Rambitan are made of thatch and bamboo. You can also see examples of the distinctive rice barns, known as Lumbung in the Sasak language. Dusun Rambitan is also famous for its woven fabric, which is still produced by hand. You can see some examples of different designs from Lombok in the photo below.
The whole of Kuta faces out towards the sea and the mile long stretch of Kuta Lombok Beach. Restaurants and bars with thatched roofs line the edge of the beach. I wouldn’t recommend swimming or sunbathing at Kuta Beach in Lombok as there are several nicer beaches within a short drive of the town. However Kuta Lombok Beach is a picturesque setting for a meal or a beer at sunset.
