Tanjung Aan Beach, Lombok

4.3
#3 of 10 in Beaches in Lombok
Beach Nature / Park
The pure white sands of Tanjung Aan Beach stretch in a long sweeping curve around the bay of the same name. The sheltered waters of the bay barely ripple, perfect for little ones to play in or for non-swimmers to bathe. Lie back and soak up some sun, but leave your snorkel gear at home, because there's nothing to see here. Despite the beach's beauty, it rarely gets crowded. A few vendors sell drinks, snacks, and souvenirs, but avoid setting up camp near them, as they tend to pester.

    Perhaps the most beautiful of Kuta! Thin and very white sandy beach yet with typical warung!! Go there before they build resort ...

    We were there on the first Sunday after the end of Ramadan and there were entire groups of locals on the beach; Tanjung Aan however is so large that we cut out a space on a beautiful piece of beach near the Cape on the extreme right looking at the sea. Apart from some small boat who occasionally came to drop off some tourists who mostly reached the top of the bluff on foot, we enjoyed this paradise almost in solitude far away from everything and everyone, even sellers of coconut and bracelets. In the afternoon we reached the warung Turtle in the central area of the Bay adjacent to the parking of scooters, where we lunched on comfortable gazebos overlooking the sea and sunbathing on a lounger in straw and bamboo; Here there was more movement in General. I would have liked to see it on a weekday in order to live, I guess, almost in solitude to explore it thoroughly but we didn't have enough days left to remember that there are multiple accesses to the sea, all, I guess, manned by locals who will want 10000 IDR to scooter for parking and access to the sea. As I said above the Bay and very big so try the pass closer to the part of the Bay you want to visit. In the evening we moved on the Cape (from the nearest car park 10/15 minutes slow walk) to enjoy a fantastic sunset on beautiful bays towards Kuta. If you're nearby Kuta, Tanjung Aan is the beach that you must see.

    Beautiful and very long beach. It has a huge rock in the middle of the beach where you can climb one to see the beautiful sights. It has a bar where you can eat or take cheap drinks.
