Other Indonesian locations
is one of the main tourist locations in Lombok. With beautiful white sandy
beaches with some good snorkeling and diving close to the beach.
Senggigi Beach is only a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport at Mataram. If you get a car transfer from Lembar Harbour after catching the ferry from Bali the driver will try to sell you full package tours including hotel, trekking or snorkeling trips. If you do not have accommodation booked they will then take you to their office in Senggigi and try to sell you accommodation saying their prices are best. You can get the accommodation cheaper if you go straight to the hotel. There are many hotels within walking distance so not hard to get accommodation without paying these tourist offices.
The Pasar Seni (Art Market) is located close to the beach at the southern end of Senggigi between the Santosa and Sheraton resorts. There are a number of stalls selling handicrafts and souvenirs from around Lombok. As well as various arts they sell clothing, tshirts and sarongs at prices cheaper than you will get in Bali.
