Mawun Beach, Lombok Overview

Mawun Beach is a classic horse shoe-shaped beach in southern Lombok with two hills cordoning off each side. The stunning beach boasts of soft white sand, gentle waves at each end for swimming, and stronger waves in the middle for water sports opportunities. Some adventurers even like to trek up the hills to check out the panoramic view of Lombok.

The drive here can be steep, but the mind-calming view of open, blue waters and lack of crowd at Mawun Beach is rewarding.

Things To Do

  • Mawun Beach isn’t known for its nightlife or crowds. Instead, it’s the ideal beach to kick back, relax, and enjoy the art of doing nothing. Beach chairs with umbrellas can be rented here by the hour with a lower price for all-day renting.

  • Because of the beach’s horse-shoe shape with hills on each side, the east and west side of the beach has calm waters. Families with children can enjoy playing in these areas. The middle part of the beach has stronger waves that are ideal for swimming and surfing. However, one needs to bring the necessary equipment as rentals are not available here.

  • The hills on each side of Mawun Beach have some trails to explore. The climb is quite steep, but the view at the top is totally worth it - an unobstructed view of Lombok island and the majestic Indian Ocean. 

  • The Mawun beach has just three restaurants. One isn't likely to see any water sports kiosks here. The appeal of Mawun Beach isn’t in its activities, but its calming environment where one can simply relax.

Restaurants and Food at Mawun Beach

There are a total of three restaurants at Mawun Beach – Regi’s Bar/Lounge, Warung Ojolaly, and Mawun Blue. After a long day of playing in the water, one can replenish at any of these spots. They serve local dishes like fried rice and noodles at reasonable prices along with alcohol and mocktails.

How To Reach Mawun Beach

Mawun Beach is around 60 kilometres (1 hour 30 minutes) from Mataram City. The roads leading here can be steep, with two routes to choose from – the west route and the east route. The west route will pass Cakranegara, Penujak and Selong Belanak with around 9-10 kilometres of bad terrain. The east route goes through Cakranegara, Kediri, Batu Nyale and Kuta. 

A taxi costs around IDR 200,000 from Mataram and IDR 50,000 from Selong Belanak. There are also bus services available (starting at IDR 25,000) that take both routes with Mawun Beach as the final destination. While these buses will ply around 2-3 times an hour during peak season, one might find it difficult to hail one during the off season when they may ply only once an hour.
