Tanjung Aan Beach
Lombok island Indonesia has so many stunning beaches, moreover on the south coast. One of the beaches that should be in your Lombok tourism list is Tanjung Aan Beach, the home of Princess Mandalika. The beach is facing the Indian Ocean with about 2 km stretched coastline. One thing that you will directly notice when you hit out feet on Tanjung Aan Beach is the sand. Unlike other Lombok beaches, the sand of this beach is like a pepper.
The beach has many swings for that perfect Instagram snap, as well as a row of local restaurants (warungs) and bamboo loungers.
During the holiday, most of the tourists are domestic tourist, but if you visit Tanjung Aan at Lombok Indonesia around February, the beach will be filled by both domestic and international tourists because there is a special event called as Bau Nyale ritual. The ritual is related to a tale about the beautiful princess Mandalika who jumped to the south sea to stop the princes who want her to be their wife. Princess Mandalika is said to be the incarnation of a worm called Nyale. The local people make foods from Nyale.
