Behind its beauty, Seger Beach has a legendary myth and is still trusted by the people around the beach. The story begins when the beautiful Princess Mandalika, the descendant of King Tonjang Beri, accepts the request of every prince who wants to marry her. Surprised by the princess’s decision, the princes who were not willing to share the love and affection of the princess agreed to start a war. Whoever wins the war will be entitled to become Princess Mandalika’s husband.
Before the war occurred, the news had been heard by Princess Mandalika. Not wanting anyone to die, this well-behaved princess began to meditate. On the 20th of the 10th month of the Sasak calendar (a tribe in Lombok), the princess summoned all the princes who had proposed to her.
Located on Seger Beach, Putri Mandalika explained that no one has the right to own her heart. Putri feels she is destined to become a nyale (sea worm) so that it can be enjoyed by all the people. At that moment, the princess plunged into the sea and disappeared. He disappeared without a trace. Shortly after that, a large number of nyale appeared on the sea surface.
From then on, the tradition of catching nyale smells (catching) began to be held every year at Seger Beach. This ritual is to commemorate the kindness of Putri Mandalika who was willing to sacrifice herself to prevent a war that could cause casualties. Nyale is not only caught but can be processed and is believed to have high protein.
