Welcome to Senggigi
Senggigi is now usurped by the Gilis and Kuta; tourist numbers are relatively modest here and you'll find some excellent-value hotels and restaurants. Still, the tacky main strip could be more appealing, the noticeable influx of bar girls is sleazy, the garish billboards are ugly and the resident beach hawkers can be over-persistent. If you want a quieter beach experience, head north.
The Senggigi area spans 10km of coastal road; the upscale neighbourhood of Mangsit is 3km north of central Senggigi, while just beyond lie the picturesque beaches of Malimbu and Nipah.
