Tanjung is a lively, atmospheric town that doubles as the regions administrative centre and transport hub. There are few interesting landmarks or attractions in town from a tourist’s perspective but the local market is a real eye-opener.


If you are heading toward Mount Rinjani, it is the best place to stock up on last minute essentials. Tanjung boasts a few homely guest houses but most people take the short drive west to the fabulous beaches of Medana and the Sire Peninsular.

Both these adjacent beach areas are North Lombok’s next big thing and it’s not difficult to see why. Sire Beach, with captivating views across to the Gili Island’s, offer picture perfect palm-fringed white sands which are usually completely deserted away from the handful of upmarket beachfront hotels. Located here is the swanky Kosaido Golf Club, one of the finest rounds of golf you can experience in Indonesia. Nearby Medana Bay has recently undergone a swish makeover with a new yacht marina and a number of stylish beachfront resorts. This is an incredibly idyllic spot to while away a hot day in the sun and the backdrop of immense Mount Rinjani never fails to captivate.


North Lombok Regency consists of five districts (kecamatan):

1. District of Bayan

2. District of Kayangan

3. District of Gangga

4. District of Tanjung

5. District of Pemenang
