Tanjung Aan Beach
With a wide arc of sparkling white sand and brilliant turquoise waters, Tanjung Aan beach certainly checks all the boxes. Set in a wide, horseshoe shaped bay it is also one of the more sheltered beaches on Lombok’s exposed south coast. That said there are still some waves for surfing in the middle of the bay, and these are ideal for beginners.
Swimming and snorkelling are both fine at Tanjung Aan. On all but the roughest of days the waves barely make it to the shore. For swimmers it’s easy enough to avoid the coral and for snorkellers there is plenty of colourful marine life to see.
Tanjung Aan beach’s appeal isn’t much of a secret these days and it is one of the most popular beaches in the Kuta area. But there’s no shortage of room and beyond a few warungs (snack huts) and some bamboo beach loungers there isn’t much in the way of development.
One of the best known features of Tanjung Aan are the beach swings. There are a few of these scattered along the shoreline and they are a firm favourite with the Instagram brigade.
