Photo of the Day: Surfers at Senggigi Beach – Lombok

On my last visit to Lombok we decided to upmarket our accommodation a tad from our usual homestay tradition and chose the Sengggi Beach Hotel. The long stretch of stunning coastline 10 klms north of Ampenan known as Senggigi Beach is in reality the tourist centre of the island of Lombok.

Dotted along the coast are numerous luxury resorts and all manner of accommodation to suit the traveller and tourist alike. But it was on one occasion shortly before sunset I noticed surfers walking along the beach toting their boards. I soon found out why. Opposite the hotel, around 250 yards offshore was a perfect break. The annoying thing was I left my telephoto lens back in the room and sunset was close and so I made the best of it.
