Nusa Lembongan, Bali
ONLY 20 MIN FROM BALI LIES THE THREE ISLANDS OF LEMBONGAN, CENINGAN AND PENIDA. THE MOST POPULAR BY FAR IS LEMBONGAN, WHERE PEOPLE COME TO ENJOY THE WORLD CLASS SURFING AND DIVING, THE QUIET BEACHES AND LAZY ISLAND ATMOSPHERE. A SMALL PIECE OF PARADISE JUST A STONE THROW FROM BALI.
Fast boats from mainland Bali arrive and depart from Jungutbatu beach in the heart of the village and this is where you will find the best selection of hotels, restaurants and local shops. Nothing is too far away as the island is only 8 square kilometers and accessibly on newly resurfaced roads. At the north end of the island you will find Jungutbatu village and the Mangrove forest; to the east the access road to Nusa Ceningan via the iconic yellow bridge and south side of the island you will find Lembongan village, Mushroom beach and Devils tear.
Automatic scooters and bicycles are easy to rent and exploring the island looking for hidden beaches or watching the surfers with a beer at sunset is a popular activity. Did we mention the waters around Lembongan are also teaming with fish life so make sure you check out the majestic Manta Rays and healthy reefs.
With so much to offer and no hawkers hassling tourists the island is a great choise for a day trip or weeks holiday….
