The Mandalika Beach in Kuta, Lombok

Many interesting impressions when the first landed in Lombok. When landing, of course, did not think that the dream of traveling to Lombok could finally be realized. I think the island of Lombok is still very quiet, the population is very different from Bali, especially in Java, there are still many expanses of rice fields and small hills that are not so touched by humans when I see before landing. Maybe this is what travelers like when traveling to Lombok. There is one more thing that I was surprised when landing in Lombok, Cellphone Signal. The cellphone signal here is basically if the provider is not very good, yes, it is possible to only get EDGE signal and the highest 3G is only obtained in Praya City. If it's in Kuta ... don't expect to get a signal and in Lombok it is still minimal public transportation. Public transportation can only be found in the city of Mataram. So, yeah, everywhere you go, you have to rent a motorbike, and fortunately there are motorbikes for rent at the inn. One problem resolved already. So after landing, where are you going while on Lombok?

If in Lombok there are so many destination choices, especially if the beach is sure to be confused because everything is good. But, according to the bucketlist, of course I have prepared where and what I want to do there before going to Lombok.

Well, for the first time I see the Kuta Mandalika beach. After landing, store your belongings at the inn, even though it was a bit jetlag due to the first time you boarded the plane directly. Without further heading to the first beach! I will visit Kuta Mandalika Beach. The beach is very beautiful even though the coast is a lot of algae, but for a beach that is quite strategic location is considered beautiful for me.

The Mandalika Kuta Beach is increasingly being improved which will be like Kuta Beach in Bali

The white sand and pristine beaches bring a different impression of a crowded beach compared to beaches in other places

Some parts of the coast also have neatly arranged rocks and the distance between the beach and the open sea looks very far away

As far as the eye can see the coastline of Kuta Mandalika is indeed very long. It's no wonder that Kuta Mandalika beach is a favorite of tourists who come here. Not too many persons swim here because the coast is pretty rocky, but there are some who swim at the beach that is not rocky.

One of the characteristics of Kuta Mandalika beach is the view of the cone-shaped hill there and the blue sea which makes the eyes immediately fresh to see it. The point is that when I go to Lombok, the beach of Kuta Mandalika is very unfortunate to be missed because the view that it offers doesn't make you regret coming all the way to Lombok.

There is another story behind the beauty of Kuta Mandalika beach. When I was walking on this beach there were many women who sold woven fabrics and children who sold ethnic bracelets. It's really tempting to buy it. It didn't matter to me at that time to buy some bracelets from the children, but what surprised me was when I bought some bracelets from one of the children, uh, there appeared other children who sold bracelets as well because I was seen buying the bracelets. I was confused when at that time because the children who came to me also asked me to buy a bracelet, #Well! come up short for me like this. Immediately refused. Without further not to buy again because for I am worrying to running out of money, because they did ask miserably. At first, I didn't intend to buy a bracelet at all, but because I looked like a tourist, at that time I only wore outer weaving #hmmm. The same thing was the same when I was interested in buying woven fabric, at first I only met a mother, but gradually more and more came to me! but yes never mind there was also the intention of I also bought souvenirs from them to rebuild Lombok tourism through sellers of Lombok. Because when I went to the beach, the atmosphere was still very quiet due to the Lombok earthquake that shook a few months ago.
