Nusa Lembongan is a small island just 25 minutes off the southeast coast of Bali.
Approximately 8 square km in size, Nusa Lembongan is one of three neighbouring islands of Bali, the others being the much larger Nusa Penida and the tiny Nusa Ceningan. The three islands are separated from Bali by the Badung Strait.
This island paradise is a world away from the hassle and hectic pace of South Bali. Neither hawkers nor traffic nightmare here (there is just no car !) but magnificent sceneries. Nusa Lembongan is definitely a good place to just put your feet up and relax. Main activities include scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing and enjoying the magnificent sceneries.
The water is some of the clearest you will find anywhere with abundant marine life – including amazing Manta rays year-round & massive Oceanic Sunfish (Mola-Mola) in season – and super healthly coral.
Nusa Lembongan was first opened up as a tourist destination by surfers, and it has long been an established part of the Bali surf circuit. There are several white sand beaches away from the main centres which are virtually never crowded.
Finally, there is a well established seaweed farming industry on the island and many visitors find it interesting to watch the farmers working on their plants and learn more about the farming.
And there is so many other things to discover in Nusa Lembongan …
