Just a 2-hour flight from Jakarta, Lombok offers a wealth of gorgeous beaches that are far less crowded than in neighboring Bali

If Bali is the island of the Gods, then Lombok, its neighbor to the east, is the island of breathtaking beaches.

A 2-hour flight from Jakarta, Lombok is blessed with deserted beaches, quiet hillside towns populated mostly by roosters and fruit vendors, and a fascinating blend of cultures. Home to more than 2.4 million Indonesians, Lombok is 80% Sasak Muslim and 20% Balinese Hindu, making for a vibrant mix of majestic mosques and ancient temples.

Here are my favorite beaches in Lombok. Luckily, most of them are located not far from the Lombok International Airport.

Tanjung Aan Beach

Down in southeast Lombok sits sleepy Tanjung Aan Beach. The isolated stretch of white sand is comprised of two sweeping bays.

Tanjung Aan is perfect for those looking to take a relaxing dip or for a snorkeling spot. The smooth turquoise waters and the white powdery sand make the beach a Lombok must. Nowadays, there are a number of food vendors serving up tasty local snacks you can enjoy while sunbathing on this gorgeous beach!

MYTHICAL BEACH. Once a year, a Bau Nyale ceremony where locals search for sea worms is held on Seger beach.

HONOLULU Honolulu is famous for golden sand beaches and big waves. But the citys warehouse district, called Kakaako, is famous for a different sort of attraction. You wont find kitschy Hawaiian souvenir shops or hordes of tourists here, but you will find a thriving urban arts scene, with colorful street murals so big they stretch across walls and sometimes entire sides of buildings.

In one mural, a skeleton with a surfboard in tow flashes the shaka, a Hawaiian hand-greeting. In another, a snarling panda ferociously snaps its jaws near a doe-eyed maiden. A third shows a banana in grass skirts dancing a hula with a talking pineapple.

Kakaako sits between Honolulus downtown and the touristy Waikiki. In ancient times, the area was home to a native Hawaiian fishing village.

In the 20th century, the area industrialized, with warehouses, auto repair shops and car dealerships. The neighborhood has declined in recent years as landowners struggled to find ways to utilize its prime real estate, smack in the middle of Honolulu.

It wasnt until 2011 that Honolulu artist Jasper Wong sought to revitalize the area with urban art. Wong created a group called POW!WOW! Hawaii with the goal of beautifying Kakaako and bringing people together through art.

Artists from around the globe participated, painting murals on walls across the decaying neighborhood.

Wong says the art represents a unique local style, mixing the elaborate urban graffiti seen in places like Brooklyn, Miami, Tokyo and London with Hawaiian cultural influences and Asian anime. Its also a far cry from the graffiti-tagging that once plagued the neighborhood.

One of the more powerful murals covers the sides of a building near a popular gym, the UFC Gym at 805 Pohukaina St. The faces of Hawaiian royalty King David Kalakaua and Queen Liliuokalani appear on the wall in a swirling mist of fantasy, history, and social commentary. It was created by native Hawaiian artists Solomon Enos and John Prime Hina along with mainland artist Gaia.

For vacationers, the neighborhoods edgy vibe and urban art offer an appealing alternative to Oahus better-known attractions sunny days at the beach or trips to historic sites like Pearl Harbor.

Teens may especially relate to the vivid anime themes, while older viewers will appreciate the areas Banksy sensibility yet all the art can be seen outside the confines of a traditional museum.

The metropolitan area has been lashed by a sudden storm, with lightning, hail and rain sweeping across several suburbs.

Cottesloe and North Cottesloe beaches were closed earlier this afternoon and Scarborough and Trigg followed as the weather loomed just off the coast.

A Surf Life Saving WA spokesman said beaches were closed when lightning was within 10km of the shore.

Large hail fell in several suburbs in a reminder of the 2010 storm that caught the city by surprise.


The storm is associated with the convergence of two weather systems.

The Weather Bureau extended a severe weather warning to the Perth metropolitan area.

Weather Bureau duty forecaster Pete Clegg said pressure systems to the west and east were joining up to create unpredictable weather conditions.

Were expecting heavy rainfall leading to flash flooding with damaging winds and light hail possible for anywhere south of Gingin and north of Mandurah, he said.

Most of Sydney’s beaches should again be safe for swimming this weekend after the biggest storm in years on Tuesday night sent pollution levels soaring.

As of Friday, Beachwatch was predicting pollution at seven of the 25 Sydney harbour beaches it monitors, while contamination levels were also expected to be high at 13 of the 20 southern beaches tracked.

Conditions improved further by Saturday, with pollution unlikely at 23 of the 25 harbour beaches and 12 of the 20 southern beaches.

Stuart Khan,an associate professor in the UNSW School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, said simple geography meant it was likely that ocean beaches would be the first to recover, with much higher levels of water flow to flush out the pollution than those bounded by an enclosed harbour.


Beaches near the harbour are also closer to sewage and stormwater drains, the overflowing of which is the main source of contamination for inner-harbour beaches. These sites typically become significantly dirtierafter rain.

“Those risks are real people should obey that advice not to swim in harbour pools or beaches after heavy rainfall,” Dr Khan said. “It can only take between 10 and 20 millimetres [of rain]“.

The city hadabout 80 millimetres ofrain in just over a day while southern suburbs were drenched in120 millimetres or more, causing minor flooding on the Cooks River flowing into Botany Bay.

Guy Klamer, a 32-year-old from Vaucluse who swims daily across a number of harbour beaches with his triathlon team the Magnesium Men, said they were mostly very clean.

BANGALORE: Beaches are some of the favorite vacation, honeymoon and adventurous destinations for people around the world. Though we know beaches to be filled with sand that is draped in gold which shimmers under the sunlight, there are strangely beautiful beaches that may just shock you when you look through them.

The beaches on this list will amaze viewers and also stir a desire to go visit them. These beaches are mouth gaping, exciting, fascinating and ones that will leave the viewers awe-struck. Dont be too surprised if some of these beaches defy logic and seem like they are from another planet.

The Starry Shores of Maldives:

This beach is located on one of the islands of Maldives is a real treat to the eyes. The shore of the beach comes to life when small creatures called bioluminescent phytoplankton come together and creates a starry blue-lit shore.

They create a natural light show along the island which is like watching the stars on the sand.

The Hidden Beach, Mexico:

A natural wonder, astonishing creation and a destination for lovers is the hidden beach or the Playa de Amor (beach of love) located in Marieta, Mexico. This beach is hidden out of sight since it is located underground and can be accessed only through being dropped from a helicopter or canoeing through a small tidal wave opening.

This beach came to be when the government of Mexico used this land as a bomb testing facility but later turned it into one of natures most beautiful sites. Today it is listed under UNESCOs world heritage sites.
