Amazing Things You Must Do and See in Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan (Other Islands next to Bali)

SUNSET, RAINBOW, WHITE SAND, BLUE SEA and CLEAR SKY is the best part you can find in here.

The Nusa Islands consist of Nusa Nusa Penida, Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan and are often wrongly thought of as being part of Bali. The Nusa Islands are actually located next to Bali Island but you can easily visit them via a short ferry ride ( around 25 minutes ) from Padang Bai or Sanur Beach in Bali. The biggest island is Nusa Penida, then Nusa Lembongan and the smallest one is Nusa Ceningan.

Some people just come in using one day tour with fast boat from Padang Bai or Sanur, but I suggest you to spend more days and enjoy this beautiful island. Not crowded as Bali, but this island has amazing food, affordable accommodation and also many tourist attractions like diving, snorkeling and kayaking. People in here also very friendly and most of them understand English very well. If you don’t know about this place someone from your villa will explain and arrange what you need during your stay.


I used Rocky Fast Boat from Sanur Beach. They have a website where you can book your trip or you can ask your hotel in Nusa Lembongan to book it for you. They pick you up at the airport, take you to the ferry, and get you and your bags safely to Nusa Lembongan. When arrived in Nusa Lambongon they dropped us to the hotel and picked us back to return to Bali and also they dropped us to our next hotel in Bali.

Rocky Fast Boat

Notes :

  • Wear clothes higher than knee length to cross through the water to enter the boat
  • Sit on the left when go to Nusa Lembongan and sit on the right on the way back so you can open a window without getting drenched with sea water.
  • Just wear you slippers or take your shoes with you because although they put your shoes in a plastic container for the trip, they all get dumped on a wet beach when you arrive.


You can walk in this island or rent scooter / motorbike. I rent motorbike for IDR 85.000,- perday. Be careful with the road and prepare to get lost somewhere while using direction in Google Maps.


This place is the perfect place to chill and do nothing while being surrounded by some of the most beautiful island scenery you could imagine.

1. Swimming, Relaxing at Dream Beach

The beach is one among Lembongan’s collection of beautiful and quiet beaches with soft white sand. The blue waters are clear and great for swimming, however, be careful with big waves  since it faces directly to the Indian Ocean.

Next to the beach, you can find Cafe Pandan. You can enjoy some cocktails, local snack and meal in here. Happy hours are between 16:00 and 18:00 with buy 1 get 1 free deals on specified cocktails. If you can see this cafe details klik –> WHAT TO EAT in NUSA LEMBONGAN

2. Devil’s Tears

Right next to Dream Beach is Devil’s Tears. What makes Devil’s Tears such an epic spot is besides the name, you can see rainbow. Prepare to get wet in here because the splash form the waves. Many big waves crash against the rocks or small caves and then a huge water spray come.

Because this is one of tourist spots in here, so better to come here early in morning or afternoon after people heading back to Bali to avoid crowded from other tourists.

3. Watching SUNSET in Ware-Ware Cafe, Mushroom Bay

One of the best spots to watch sunset in Lembongan Island is in Ware-ware rooftop cafe. You can relaxing in their sofa, listening nice music, and watching perfect sunset.

4. Sunset POINT

Another sunset point on Nusa Lembongan named ” Sunset Point “. This spot also has  incredible sunset. If you want to watch the sunset in nature with calm and peaceful feeling then this is gonna be the perfect spot to come. Be careful to walk beside the clift because the rock is sharp. Use your shoes / slippers is the wise choice to explore this places
