Sungkun (Kura Kura) beach, East Lombok
@arasy3scd / @genpilomboksumbawa .
Sungkun beach is one of the very less known and rarely visited beaches in the eastern part of Lombok. But did you know? Its neighbouring beach 'Pantai Surga' was one the pioneer of East Lombok tourism. Even long before people start visiting Sembalun and the Pink beach wasn't even discovered, Pantai surga was once a popular surfers` paradise in the east and there used to be nice cottages with a restaurant which sadly now abandoned😢 .

How's the East Lombok Tourism compared to the others?
Just a personal opinion, compared to the other 3 regencies in Lombok, East Lombok Regency is the slowest in developing its tourism sector. Does it have fewer potentials comparing to the other regencies? Definitely, No. With an uncounted number of beautiful beaches, stunning deserted hills overlooking the ocean, unique beaches with stunning cliffs, a pink sand beach, scenic mountainous landscape of Sembalun and about 13 of amazing Gili islands, East Lombok regency has equally the same amount of potentials to become a world-class tourism destination. What makes it run so slow?? That has been my own question for ages.
