Semeti Beach Lombok is a beautiful small beach which has large, extraordinary rock formations. The rock formations consist of caves, rock pools, and an awesome rocky coastline to explore. If you’re a fan of exploring and finding little hidden treasures, this epic coastline is the perfect spot.

How to get to Semeti Beach Lombok 

We drove to Semeti Beach Lombok straight after visiting Mawi Beach. These beaches are located 5 minutes from each other. From the main area of Kuta, the drive would have taken roughly 40 minutes.

The best way to get around Lombok is by renting a scooter. We rented our scooter for 50K IDR per day. Getting around the island is very easy as majority of the roads are newly paved. Some of the roads leading to the beaches are unpaved with bits of rock and loose gravel, but nothing too extreme.

Where to stay in Lombok

Lombok is a large island with a variety of areas to stay, although we found the best area for tourists to be Kuta. Kuta is full of restaurants, cafes and clothes shops. We stayed at Three V and it was perfect for our extended stay. The rooms were clean with a lovely patio for us to sit on. If you’re looking to stay in a beautiful villa, a new and modern accommodation option is Harmony Villas. It’s currently one of the most popular places to stay in Kuta.

What to expect at Semeti Beach Lombok

Semeti Beach Lombok is a beautiful stretch of beach and is the perfect spot to watch the sunset. For people who love exploring, the landscape around the beach is an adventurers dream. The beach is full of tall rock formations, caves and rock pools. The tall rocks make for the perfect spot to watch the sunset while you have an undisturbed view of the surrounding area.

To the left of the beach, you’ll find a small pathway through the bushes that will lead you to a little hidden cove. During high tide, the rock formations act as a giant wall to keep the water in the cove. However, the water around here can get a bit rough depending on the tide. The water is also crystal blue and very deep, with visibility all the way down to the ocean floor.

When we went, it was very late and the tide was low which exposed all the rocks under the sea. While the tide is low, you can capture still and perfect water reflections of the sky. However, be careful of the sea urchins around the rocks as they can sometimes be hard to spot. During the day the tide is the perfect condition to relax in.

There are no warungs or tables on Semeti Beach so if you’d like some food it’s best to head over to the neighbouring beach Mawi Beach. Semeti Beach is not your average beach as it is different to most others. It should definitely be on your list to visit if you’re in Lombok and are looking for a day out exploring the coastline.
