Tanjung Aan Beach

Tanjung Aan Beach, Primadona Wisata in Mandalika
Lombok, CNN Indonesia – The clear blue sea is clear when I arrive at Tanjung Aan Beach, one of the beaches in Mandalika, Central Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB). When the feet stamped on it, the white sand felt soft. Local residents said that I met, Tanjung Aan Beach has long been a prima donna tourist destination on the island of Lombok. Tanjung Aan Beach is just about an hour away by motor vehicle from Lombok International Airport. My advice, immediately come here before enlivened by tourists, because Mandalika has just inaugurated a Special Economic Zone (KEK) by the government of President Joko Widodo. President Jokowi hopes, KEK Mandalika can turn the wheels of the surrounding community economy from tourism potential. I went to Tanjung Aan on the weekend, on the sidelines of the launching of Jasindo Travel Insurence’s launch of PT Asuransi Jasa Indonesia (Persero). From afar, the beach is like a private pool, because the surroundings are low-altitude green hills. Tanjung Aan Beach does have beautiful scenery, but still fairly quiet. More foreign tourists than local tourists. When asked they are very happy to be here, because the nature still feels very sustainable. Although still quiet from the visit, tourists who come not to fear starvation or thirst, because many places to eat that has opened a stall here. Not only eat a drink, tourists can also buy souvenirs in the form of a typical woven fabric Lombok peddled by street vendors. For those who want more adventure to dive or stop by the Gili Islands, there are small boats that are also ready to take. Said local residents who talked with me, other than Tanjung Aan Beach, there are some beaches are also frequented by tourists, such as Kuta Beach, Seger Beach, Serenting Beach, and Beach Gerupuk. Do not just play water while in Tanjung Aan Beach, because there are two places that are dear to pass, namely Bukit Merese and Stone Umbrella. Hill Merese is located on the right side of the beach. Green grass hill can be reached by walking about 30 minutes. Because I do not have much time, I only climb half of the height of Mount Merese.
