Senggigi beach.

Senggigi is the main tourist strip of the Indonesian island of Lombok, stretched out along several kilometers of the beachfront just to the north of the capital, Mataram. The site of a building frenzy in the late 1990s when Lombok was hyped to be the next Bali, the communal violence of 2000 and the 2002 Bali bombing dealt Senggigi a severe blow, with tourist numbers declining precipitously and many construction projects halted.

Sights

Pura Batu Bolong is a famous Hindu temple with 14 altars on a rock on the beach which is visited by many worshippers.[1] The name means "Rock with a hole".

In the south of Senggigi the grave of Batu Layar (Makam Batu Layar), a famous Muslim saint, is worth a visit.

The salty waterfall at the end of Nambung Beach can be reached by walking on sand and rocks or using a traditional boat.[2]
