A canyon by the sea? This one-of-a-kind rock formation that looks similar to the Grand Canyon in Arizona seems really out of place with the rest of its surroundings and makes for a visceral experience unlike any other.

What to expect: 

  • Located on the northern part of the island, this ‘canyon’ is actually a result of the eruption of Gunung Rinjani Tua in 1257.
  • The sands of the beach exude a shining black glow that gives Pantai Tebing an other-worldly feel.

One of only 10 pink sand beaches in the world, Pantai Tangsi is located on Lombok’s far south-eastern shore.

What to expect: 

  • The pink tint is due to millions of dead red coral fragments being brought up by the waves to the beach. Fused with the beach’s white sand, this biological occurrence is what gives Tangsi Beach its spectacular natural look.
  • Unaffected by mass tourism due to its secluded location, this is the perfect place to explore the awe-inspiring beauties of Lombok!
