The other Kuta BeachLombok, Indonesia

On the south coast of Lombok island, 30 minutes away from the airport, there lies a beach paradise fed by the Indian Ocean.

The 1250-hectare Mandalika may be teeming with luxurious resorts, hotels, nightclubs and tourists, but it's the white sands of Mandalika's Kuta Beach that has our attention.

This 7.2-kilometre beach is not the Kuta Beach of Bali that most know. Mandalika's Kuta is a beachside village that draws people in with it's laid back, sleepy vibes and watersport activities.


get there

From Lombok International Airport, Mandalika is a 40-minute drive. A ferry also travels from Bali to Lembar Harbor, which sits two to three hours from Manadlika.
