Batu Penyu, Southeast Lombok Indonesia
Batu Penyu is located on Sungkun Beach in Southeast Lombok Indonesia. The small island in the middle of the sea is shaped like a turtle, that is why the island is called Batu Penyu or in English Turtle Stone. The wave here is coming quite big, so it is not good to have a swim here or snorkel.
How to get to Batu Penyu?
You can reach Batu Penyu by car or motorbike. If you are in Mataram or Senggigi, it takes about 2 to 2 1/2 hours drive. The road is good from Mataram and Senggigi to Jero Waru (pavement) about 25 km from Jero Waru, but the road is not good enough.
Not many people have their holiday here as this beach is far enough away and still not popular yet. You need to go with many people if you want to visit this place. Otherwise, you can join our Lombok tour packages for the best experience.

What to do in Batu Penyu?
Not so much thing to do here, just relax, have a beautiful seascape, and wait for the sunset. On the other side of the beach, you can walk to the hill on your left. You can take pictures here.
