Senggigi is a little like purgatory: it isn't so bad, but it isn't so good either. So-so beaches, so-so guesthouses, so-so restaurants and a horde of tour operators looking to shuffle you off to anywhere else in Lombok or Bali -- it's an in-between place and there's little real reason to linger.Recommended for:

I normally don't really like Senggigi beach as its sands are black but during my last trip, I was lucky to see the Balinese ceremony on the beach. It was during the celebration of their New Year, so a lot of worshippers gathered by the beach and did their prayers. What a wonderful sight!

Senggigi is probably one of the best places I have been in Indonesia. What makes senggigi so nice is how friendly it is. There is ia lot to do here. It is close to Mataram airport. It is also a boat ride (6-10 hours) from Padang Bai in Bali.
There are a lot of things to do in Senggigi, although it tends to pander to the upper class visitors. There are alot of cafes and lots of restaurants.
Senggigi also has a lot of clubs, a lot of the locals come from around to party here with the tourists.
Senggigi is a great place for anyone to travel to.
Senggigi is the most developed area for tourists on Lombok.
You can find a variety of restaurants, bars, discotheques, travel agents, photo processors, money changers, souvenir shop and a range of accommodations starting from budget guest house to 5 star hotels. Restaurants and small cafes line the colorful main beach road. Swimming off the beach is safe.
The town of Senggigi spreads out along nearly 10 kilometers of coastal road. This road continues north to Bangsal, port for the Gili Islands. Along the way, a fantastic scenery of the north west coast of Lombok awaits. Most travelers start or end their stay at Senggigi because of the easy access to Mataram Airport and accommodations options are available to all budgets. If you are frugal or intrepid and take the slow ferry from Bali, it's best to arrange transport in advance from the ferry dock to Senggigi, since the dock on the Lombok side is in a remote spot several kilometers south of Mataram.
