Mawi Beach is located between Selong Belanak Beach and Mawun Beach. From Kuta Beach, we need to go to the west about 45 minutes to Selong Belanak Beach direction. It’s not that easy to get here compared to other beaches in Lombok since this beach is not that close to the main road. I have to cross a dirty road to get here. There is no public transportation to Mawi Beach. We need to rent a motorcycle or car instead.
