One of Nusa Penida district's three tropical islands, Nusa Lembongan is a spectacular island wrapped by sheltered white-sand beaches and the sparkling Indian Ocean. Traditionally attracting vacationers, surfers and backpackers, the island is home to scenic resorts, high hills dashed with jungles, coral reefs and epic dive sites. With a vivid aqua blue colour, the water is some of the clearest you will find in and around Bali.
Some of the most popular ways to explore Nusa Lembongan are to go surfing and boat cruising on the famous Shipwrecks break of Lembongan itself. Other popular activities include snorkelling with manta rays and turtles at Dream Beach, hiking the mangrove forests along Mushroom Bay, and seeking blessings at the islet's Hindu temples. Along the track to the mangroves are fantastic local warungs or taverns selling fresh grilled fish.
Where shorelines get crumpled by limestone cliffs, the dramatic cave formations of Devil's Tears and the Blue Lagoon Waterfalls create scenic picnic and swimming spots. Nusa Lembongan's other main beaches include Jungut Batu and Sunset Beach. The island's population centre is Lembongan Village in the southern interior, where one can find homes of many traditional island families, chic nightclubs and bars, coffee shops and restaurants.
