The beautiful Nusa Lembongan is part of the three Nusa-islands that lie off the coast of Bali. Nusa Penida is the largest and most pristine island, Nusa Ceningan is a small and rather undeveloped island in the middle, and closest to the Balinese coast lies Nusa Lembongan. It is by far the most developed island of the three, even though its only a little bigger than the small Ceningan. There’s quite a lot of tourism on the islands, mainly from Chinese tour groups, but it doesn’t take much effort to avoid them.
The paradise-like Nusa Lembongan is known as a resort island. It is less rugged than neighboring island Penida, which makes it more suitable for a beach holiday. Lembongan has a couple of wonderful hotels and some great beaches and restaurants. Besides that, it’s all about the easy island life. Stress? What’s that? The island is so small that you can drive from one end to the other in half an hour.
In this article, I will share my Nusa Lembongan tips with you: I’ll provide a list of the best things to see and do, where to eat and which hotels to stay at. Nusa Lembongan is a perfect destination while on a longer trip to Bali and I would definitely recommend visiting the island for a few days. Here are my tips!
