The laid back town of Senggigi is spread over a series of bays on Lombok's west coast near the capital Mataram, and is a pleasant place to spend a few days relaxing on the beach and exploring the local restaurants and bars. With it's westerly aspect facing Bali, Senggigi is a spectacular place to watch sunset with Mount Agung silhouetted on the horizon. Although this is the island's most developed area it is much less crowded than most of Bali's coastal resorts and is a great base for exploring the rest of the island.
Senggigi has the widest range of accommodation anywhere in Lombok, from small guesthouses to boutique hideaways and 5 star hotels. The main beach has wide golden sands lapped by warm azure blue seas. Central Senggigi is an interesting place to explore in the evenings with a wide range of restaurants, and several laid back bars playing live music.
