Nusa Lembongan Tourism, Indonesia: Places, Best Time & Travel Guides

Nusa Lembongan was once the realm of shack staying surfers. Today, it definitely has hit the high point. True, you can very well get a simple room overlooking the beautiful sunsets and the surf breaks but you also have a choice to stay in one of those choicest boutique resort and relish on a scrumptious meal. The growth here has been phenomenal.

This is no way restricts the growth and the planning for future years in Nusa Lembongan. It is a burgeoning Bali island that only gets popular with each passing year. Well, this does not dismiss the fact that Nusa Lembongam is still a mellow place. However, this new found richness for the beautiful island of Indonesia is definitely paving way for substantial changes here. Some of them being: Several young boys riding around in their motorcycles to school, almost all the temples being refurbished and renovated and the remainder in the line, high end supremely comfortable luxury resorts being introduced and the time being marked by the arrival of the tourist boats (that come on package tours) rather than by the fall of a coconut or crow of a rooster. Hopefully, with the passage of years, it will get more popular as a tourist attraction in Indonesia.

  3. Our recommendations: What you can't afford to miss?

    Pantai Tanjung Sanghyang

    Pantai Tanjung Sanghyang is locally known as the Mushroom Bay accredited to the mushroom corals found off shore. It is a crescent beach that is peaceful and calm. During the day time, the tranquility of the beach is often disturbed by the parasailers and the banana boat riders. Rest of the time, it is just as good as the beach of your dreams. Jungutbatu Beach

    Jungutbatu Beach is mostly loved for its crystal clear water and white sands. It has views across of the Bali’s Gunung Agung. It is perfect for strolling during sunset!

    Dream Beach

    Dream Beach is a secluded beach that has a single resort that overlooks it. This gives you a reason enough to plan an excursion here. It is not one of those most important places to see but is definitely worth a visit for those wanting some hush hush time. Take note, the waves here are a little rough so swimming and undertaking adventure activities is not a good idea especially for children and novices.

    Coconut Bay

    Want to try some surfing at the playgrounds? This is the closest spot for you to paddle out from. However, if you are not into surfing, you can still get here to get a sleepy slice of sand.
