Senggigi Beach, Lombok Island, Indonesia
Senggigi Beach lies on the west coast of Lombok Island.
It faces the east coast of Bali in the Lombok Strait, which connects the Java Sea to the Indian Ocean.
This photo blog post shows a series of photos that I’ve captured at Senggigi beach on Lombok Island in Indonesia.
About the photos
It rained a lot most of the time and, as a result, the light sometimes wasn’t ideal, in my opinion, for colour photography. For this reason, I’ve converted some of the photos into black & white.
There are many Indonesian traditional boats at Senggigi beach on Lombok Island to be photographed. I only wish the weather was in favour of photography!
Most local men busy themselves with fishing from the shore. While, the women enjoy bathing into the clear waters.
Kids play around the pier by diving from it into the water. Meanwhile, high school and university students go for a walk and take selfies.
How relaxing to just sit down and watch some sail boats wandering about. Men who fish while standing on a small boat after the stormy weather.
To the south of Senggigi beach there’s the Pura Batu Bolong, a small Hindu temple built on a rock with a big hole.
This is an excellent spot for seeing the sun setting behind Bali’s Mount Agung.
Senggigi beach on Lombok Island isn’t touristy at all. At least it wasn’t for the couple of weeks I was there.
It wasn’t sunny every day, but it was a memorable experience to walk along Senggigi beach to watch and photograph the local people going about their daily routines.
Hopefully, I will be back soon and I will be able to take more photographs.
