Batu Bolong literally means “rock with hole”, a logical name given that this pretty temple sits atop just that. The welcoming locals place offerings on the 14 different altars and pagodas of this dramatic rocky outcrop. It’s a lovely spot to gaze out at the Bali Sea, watching the sun set on another day in paradise.
Senggigi Art Market
For handicrafts and souvenirs from around Lombok, you can’t miss Senggigi Art Market. The little stalls are set up between the Santosa Villas & Resort and the Sheraton Hotel. There are paintings, clothing, handcrafted jewelry, pearls, kitchenware and much more. It’s a great place to find some local treasures, but be prepared to haggle for the best price!
Kerandangan Valley is a lush jungle with waterfalls and swimming holes on the beautiful island of Lombok. The valley rolls down into light sand beaches, with a strip of coastline popular for surfers and swimmers. A walk through the tranquil forest and along the shore is a great way to unwind while enjoying a stay in Senggigi.
Do not pay exorbitant prices for a guide! Do bargain. If you are going to the Tia Kelep waterfall the trail is not difficult and does not really need a guide. The official entrance fee is very small, only 5 or 10 thousand Rupiah per person.
