The good news, Lombok has found a new travel destination hidden on the North Lombok, no body know about this beach area only the local people know about that beach, it located on the Sambik Bangkol village Gangga regency North Lombok, its about 20 minutes from capital city of North Lombok Tanjung and around an hour from Mataram the capital city of Lombok ride to the north passing Pusuk Monkey Forest with the curve road design and left to the right on Pemenang bangsal 

This place as same to be a hidden paradise, new beach decoration with amazing view, the beach was so clear, no plastic rubbish on the beach and the water was so clear, and the amazing that the hill decoration as a abstrack painting with curve design as same like a dessert on the sahara. 

All the view that we see create by natural, although same like the people make it, the beach was blockes the flow by the hill with up to 10 meters high that so nice to be a picture background. 

This beach is a new discovery beach that easy location to reach, actually the position right behind the school of SMPN 2 Gangga, for easier to find just a remember the school that you can ask to the local people, everybody will know about the public service facility location that very helpful for traveller to find any destination. If you ride a motorbike you can ride direct to the beach side by passing the path way to enter the beach but for car you should park on the close to Main Street due to the road capacity too small. 

This beach has lot of name that local people call but the most popular name is pantai tebing based on design and architecture that cover the beach, the beach was using by local people for fishing and swimming by the beach cause of the location close to the village.

What to do

Swimming is the regular activity that local people use to be, the clear water wothout rubbish make a something different  than other beach like Gili Island or in south lombok.

Snorkelling, the local people use this beach as a place tha catch the fish it means the world underwater living well, where you can find lot of fish that you will see a good coral cause the both is underwater ecosystem one to each other need.

Take a picture, you will be surprise if you never visit the beach, find out the picture well exciting with the abstract painting background embedded and high accompanied with the crowd voices of waves, not much visitor come to and not lot of people knowing and still low of visitor but the natural aspect is the soul of the beach, keep going and the beach present the best views ever.


The beach still natural and just find by the media but the local people use to be a part of their life for daily activities, swimming, fishing and other else.

The road was so small and just motorbikes that able to passing the path way to the beach and the car must be park around 200 meters from the beach area.

The people still primitive, spend the time on agriculture as farmers and sailing as a fisher that the main income of them, although the beach has a beautiful scenery bit the people not really know how to improved and promoting the place as new travel destination.

This beach was open for public without any entrance fee to collect for save and keep the beach front from dangerous effect, everyone can going and leavea without any rule to follows, but we hope the next time this beach should protect from unresponsive people.

One thing that makes little disappointed for the sand, it has black sandy beach not white sandy beach, through the location facing to the ocean and close to Lombok mainland that product the blavk sand.

10 thing make you disappointed in Gili Trawangan

eni sulistiani
Terawangan is a small island on the middle of the sea and it has high popularity as a great destinaton in the world, however this place has more than a million visitor every years based on how many hotel they has and always fully booked on peak season but this island have something that can make disappointed during your staying at there 

1. The quality of the road 

As we understand about Gili keeps the natural eco system but there no any improvement or great planning to fix the road as kind priority, the road was sandy and not possible passing by horse cart or  bike, this is can be a negative value for Gili Trawangan as the biggest destination which contributed to increase entry tax and hospitallity tax

It still has a problem the road connection on the north side between Gili Khumba Restaurant to Coral Beach, the guests complained about road, they need to stop biking and try to push the bike even on sun heat, it look so complicated but we hope this can be solved next years to hold the boost of tourist.

2. The horse over load

In other land a horse is a kind animal with high priority to save as a tame animal, but on this land you will find the horse work so hard, load the material over capacity, load the guest and luggage from harbour to the hotel booking, extremely hurt.

The horse work for eight hour in a day with enough nutrition and fully with food consumption, but one thing make me shock when the horse stop running the driver trying to hit it by stick, this same like they work under pressure, next planning may be this kind of service ca be change by electric.

3. The cat over population 

This island was populated by cats, you will find the cat anywhere on restaurants, bar, hotels, villas or home stay, when i have take some dinners in a restaurant they come close to me when smell a  fresh fish grill while screaming "meong meong" this make me disappointed due to the cat live a wild without any control.

The guest well appreciated about the condition of the cat tiny, smelly, dirty and low nutrition, the people on this island treat the cat as animals that can lives personallity without home to stay and food to give, it look so pitty.

4. Rubbish over quantity

Hotel and Restaurant is one of the biggest company that produces rubbish, while i accrossed Gili Trawangan to Lombok i see some pack of rubbish hang on the surface of the water make me think a crazy choice, if this island do not care about rubbish next two or three years this island will be a nothing.

The problem for rubbish still no great solution to overcoming, thry collect all the hotel rubbish to a place that located close to Les Villa Ottalia Hotel together with whole gili rubbish, the place it call " bangketan" we hoped that gili leader think seriously about this trouble to keeping the island clean and far from rubbish.

5. Night lighting not supported

Trawangan is a small island about 7 kilometres the whole and 300 hectares square but not much light on the main road, the light was an important thing when night life. 

Some hotel located on the north side do not have enough light to find out where the foot step and the bike ride although this island far from a criminality and other crimes, this may need corporation with power station who supply power to the whole island and invoiced to leader of the island that collected from entrance fee.

6. No Water Circulation

Have you visit this island during rainy season, this island floody on the main road, block the guest on activities, it make every people will stay on the room, water circulation on main was so poor, it need a water circullation every five meters and flow it to beach but the fact was contrary, the water stopped on the road make new swimming pool.

The quantity of rain is so much and they need to flow it shortly, although this island not same like Lombok, it has just 3 months rainy season but this problem should be stop it. 

7. The Boat Over Capacity

A public fron Gili Trawangan to Lombok was managed by local operators who has high priority and authorities but the problem is the passenger control, they often load the people out of capacity although they have rule to obey.

This problem day to day was decrease based on the critical and leader contributions to keep the island stick on the regular rule to save and secure.

8. The accomodation out of control

Gili island is a small island that same like a ship on the sea, they have standard capacity but now this island was established a lot of accomodation without care about eco system and capacity, the home change to home stay, the accomodation for employers was made to bungalows, this make everything talk about money and business, we wish that problem should be controlled to keep this island managed regularly.

To understand that gili is a small island that very unique and luxury, do not create like a big city fully with building and shoping area, keep this island as unique destination that no one can move it as far as now, the unique product make the people reach it.

9. Blocked Shore Line 

The shoreline is the best spot for the guest to barking and stay relax but a part of this island was established with restaurant, spa services and beach ba, they try to take the beach as a point of marketing but they actually they know that can maked the beach view blocked from the main road.

Some of the restaurant has built the permanent restaurant that hard to break it and close the beach view to the viewer, this never solve during the first Gili Trawangan was built but we wish this leader of the island will much appreciated to change the whole back to the normal.
