Selong Belanak Beach is one of the most prestigious beaches on Lombok tourism. This is beauty and cleanliness beach. One of the best things about this beach is the shape of the shore that looks like a crescent. The beach is having a curvy shape with hills on each point. This beach is the part of Selong Belanak Bay that faces Indian Ocean. The length of the coastline is not less than 1 km. About a quarter part of the south side of the beach is used by local people as village. There are about 40 families who work as fishermen there.


Selong Belanak Beach has the glittering soft white sand and sloping contour. The wave is not so high and the water is perfectly clean. With such beach condition, you are able to do various activities. You can just relax on the white sand, exploring the beach, sunbathing, swimming and many others. You can also go fishing by renting a small fishing boat from the local fishermen.


Even though this beach is so popular, but when we compare it to other beaches, the beach is relatively tranquil, you will only find some tourists spending their time on the beach. The beach will be crowded during the holiday season.
Selong Belanak Beach is located about 49 km from Mataram City. With car or motorcycle, you can reach the beach in 1.5 hour. From Mataram, you just need to take the route to Lombok International Airport.


The access to this beach is quite smooth even though you have to up and down in the last 15 km. Along the way to the beach, you will find so many tobacco farms or horticulture plants. Once you hit the parking lot, you will find some small cottages with traditional style left untreated. Walk about 50 m from the parking lot and you will be served with a beautiful clean beach.
