Kuta Lombok Beach
The flagship beach of the Kuta Lombok area, this 4.3-mile (7-km) stretch of coastline has scenic views and popular surf breaks. It is the most developed of Southern Lombok’s beaches yet undeveloped compared to Bali’s Kuta. Kuta Lombok is known as the “Pepper Coast” for its peppercorn-like sand. While it is not the nicest of the area’s beaches, it is a central location from which to explore the surrounding coast. Kuta Beach is located 25 minutes south of Lombok International Airport in Praya and 37 miles (60 km) south of Mataram. Make sure to stay safe and keep an eye on your belongings on the beach — recent growth in Kuta has resulted in improved conditions and services, beach theft has become an issue.
