KOMPAS.com – The stunning scenery and smooth waves of Tanjung Aan Beach make it one of the go-to places for surfing in Lombok, Indonesia.
Tanjung Aan Beach directly faces the Indian Ocean with a shoreline that spans nearly 2 kilometers and is surrounded by breathtaking green hills.
Located in the Mandalika Zone, Central Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, visitors can sink their feet in the two types of sands covering the tourist destination.
There is the soft sand that has the texture of flour and on the left side of the beach near the hill, you will find textured sand that feels like pepper.
The beauty of Lombok’s Tanjung Aan Beach is that tourists have a range of sights and things to do aside from lounging around the beach. Here are some things to do when you are here.
1. Umbrella Rock
Umbrella Rock is a large standing rock with a bottom part that has been naturally chipped away.
Its smaller-sized bottom part and large overhanging upper part gives it the illusion of an umbrella. On a hot sunny day, visitors can take refuge in the rock to cool down.
To reach this natural wonder, visitors are required to take a boat before crossing the ocean to reach this Lombok tourist spot.
