Nusa Lembongan has slowly grown as a tourist destination thanks to its good surf and chill-beach vibes. I had only heard about the crazy cliff jumping on nearby Nusa Ceningan and the world-famous T-Rex on Nusa Penida but there was also so many awesome things to do on Nusa Lembongan.

 

How to get to Nusa Lembongan

The ferry leaves multiple times per day from Sanur (east Bali) If you book it in advance often you can have your pick-up from the hotel included. To book it online in advance for the guaranteed lowest price you can click the link below to reserve your ticket.

Bali to Nusa Lembongan Day Trip – Luxury Catamaran Cruise

In Bali but still want to spend a day experiencing how epic Nusa Lembongan is, you can take a day trip on a speedboat to Lembongan and tour around the sights for the day with a guide before returning back to Bali in the evening.  The top-rated Nusa Lembongan Day Tour includes hotel pick-up and drop-off from Bali, lunch, boat transfers and your snorkel guide all while traveling in style on a luxury catamaran.

WHERE TO STAY ON NUSA LEMBONGAN

I’m going to recommend three places to stay on Nusa Lembongan. All three of these spots are in great locations but each one is a little different. One is a luxury pick, one is a value selection and the last recommendation I have for you is where I recommend for the budget backpackers.

Swara Homestay 2 – Budget: On my first trip to Nusa Lembongan we stayed at Swara Homestay 2, which set us back $10 a night for a private room with a bathroom. It was incredibly basic but we weren’t there to enjoy a fancy room so it worked for us. It was a great base for our adventures as we got stuck into all of the things to do on Nusa Lembongan. Along the beachfront, there are plenty of fancy resorts if you have the cash to splash but you can get a private room with everything you need for under $20 a night with no problems.

Check rates and availability: Swara Homestay 2

 

Sukanusa Luxury Huts – Value/My Favorite: These beautiful huts are what a Nusa Lembongan getaway is all about.  I think the most important part of accommodation is the view or how unique it is.  These huts are the ultimate getaway and although they seriously are a mix of island life and luxury. Definitely check these out before you book a luxury hotel for hundreds of dollars.

Tamarind Resort – Luxury: The second time I stayed on Nusa Lembongan was with my Nusa Islands Blogger Workshop. It was an upgrade from Swara Homestay 2! We stayed at the fancy Tamarind Resort, which was an insane property. It was a paradise hideaway with an awesome restaurant, gym, several infinity pools, and sunset views. If you are looking for an epic place to stay on Lembongan I would definitely recommend the Tamarind Resort!

8 Awesome things to do on Nusa Lembongan

1.Dream beach

A very dreamy beach indeed. A hotel with an infinity pool and a restaurant overlooking this cute little cove of white sand and crystal clear water. We had a great time swimming in the decent shore break waves at this beach. A perfect spot to hang out for the day with good access to food, drinks, pools and one of the most popular things to do on Nusa Lembongan

2. Devil’s Tears

Exploring Devil’s Tears is the best thing to do on Nusa Lembongan in my opinion. The outcrop sucks the water in before it explodes out with a boom, creating the tears of the devil. Not only does it make the devil cry but the spray also creates a rainbow on many occasions. Devil’s Tears may get a little touristy but it’s one of my favorite things to do on Nusa Lembongan.

That wasn’t the only magic that we witnessed while at this popular location. A local guide started clapping at a steady pace. At first, I thought he was cheering on the ocean. I could no longer hold back my curiosity and went and asked the old man why he was clapping the ocean. And he told he wasn’t cheering the ocean but he was, in fact, calling the turtle to appear. We laughed and joined him. He left and we stopped clapping but magically ten minutes later I spotted a turtle. Coincidence or not you tell me?

After enjoying the tears from the devil we headed around the corner to check out what we could find. More outcrops being smashed by water and some incredible tide pools. We knew we had to come back for sunset when we found the tide pools.

3. Sandy Bay

We explored even further around the corner and found Sandy Bay, another secluded beach. This is the location of the Sandy Bay Beach club, which is one of the most luxurious spots to stop off for lunch or dinner. They also have huge villas here for rent but they are incredibly upmarket and fancy often costing more than $400 per night.

4. Jungut Batu Beach

This beach is the main strip and the longest beach on Nusa Lembongan. All of the wooden tour boats and fishing vessels moor here. There is a surf break out quite a far way if you are keen to hit the swell. Almost every night we would come to Jungut Batu for the sunset and one of the nights was an absolute gem. The sky filled with electric orange and vibrant yellows.

We also followed this beach all the way down to the mangroves on a long exploratory walk. We came across everything from old wooden boats to volleyball courts to packs of stray dogs. The beauty of walking along this beach is that Mt Agung is always looming in the background. The volcano last erupted in 1963 but it is still an imposing feature in the distance. Sunset here is a must when considering things to do on Nusa Lembongan!

5. Mushroom Bay

Mushroom Bay was an awesome spot to grab a bite, hang out in a relaxed atmosphere and even rent a SUP board. It had a great family/calm atmosphere to the entire bay with a range of restaurants along the strip. Hanging out on this beach is one of the most relaxing things to do on Nusa Lembongan. We managed to find a $4 Margherita pizza from a fancy restaurant overlooking the bay. Win!

6. Mangrove Forest

We thought about doing the Mangrove tour but had done a few in the past so we opted to just drone over it haha! Maybe I will just stay in my hotel room and fly the drone to all the places in the future… It did look pretty interesting from the sky and we could visit a little of the forest when we caught the boat from Nusa Lembongan to Nusa Penida. If you are looking to do the mangrove and snorkeling tour on a day trip from Bali you can check out the top rated tour here.

7. Devil’s Tears Cliff Jump

Devil’s Tears is a popular sunset spot and tourist spot in general on Nusa Lembongan. We always hang out here for sunset as the tide pools have insane reflections. However, the last time we hit Devil’s Tears the swell wasn’t too crazy and we sent a few jumps. It’s only about 3-4 meters where we jumped but a ton of fun. The waves here smash into the cliffs so don’t mess around here on a day of a big swell.

 

8. Dream Beach Cliff Jump

When facing out to the ocean from the shore the right-hand side of the bay has a long rocky coastline stretching several hundred meters. If you wander out 2/3 of the way along the coast you will find a bit of a clearing. On a calm day, you can see the water is quite deep here. We climbed down and did a depth check and found a few deep spots. Once I had given it the all-clear as being safe. Things change underwater daily. Reef shifts, rocks move. Make sure you always do your own checks and don’t blindly follow what you read online.

There was a nice jump about 5-meters high with Dream Beach perfectly in the background. The scramble out wasn’t the safest exit ever with waves crashing into the rocks. You will need to wear shoes or reef shoes to help you climb out as the rocks are quite sharp. Other than the rocks and the necessary depth check it’s quite a fun cliff jump spot and will never be crowded… probably ever. It’s definitely one of the most epic things to do on Nusa Lembongan!

9. Snorkel with Giant Manta Rays

We hopped on a group snorkel tour from Lembongan with one thing on our minds. We were keen on swimming with giant Manta Rays as is a popular thing to do over on Nusa Penida. After initially not being able to locate the Manta Rays our awesome captain found them. We were able to swim and snorkel with the playful Manta Rays for over half an hour.

You can book a tour locally for about $20 USD if you are already on Penida or Lembongan. If you are on Penida you just go down to Crystal Bay and chat to the tour companies or if you are on Nusa Lembongan just head to the main street and literally every single tour shop is selling his tour for a similar price.
