About Nusa Lembongan

Nusa Lembongan is a small sized island one hour away by boat from mainland Bali. People living there follow the Hindu faith and are similar to the Balinese in any means. The island has become a kind of big beach resort with few opportunities for traveling experience. It is great though for relaxing, diving and snorkeling and other sea sports.

This island in which we go around in motorbike in one hour and a half has numerous white sand beaches. Its waves attract worldwide surfers. But it is the seaweeds culture, exported to Japan, China and elsewhere, which is the real reputation of the island. People live in the serenity of a daily harvest ensured and thus manage to not depend unduly tourism.

When the tide is high, the little deep waters surrounding the island take this turquoise blue color, symbol of tropical paradise: the foreigners like to swim while the natives daydream by resting or look after slim activities in their households.

The one who observes will find strange these numerous little boats along the waterfront, which look more like Venetian gondolas than to ships intended to go offshore. But, it is when the sea goes down and when we discover the seaweed fields that we understand that natives’ people from this island are in reality “sea farmers”. They turn away from fishing because the nature and the gods offer them better, seaweeds are more expensive per pound that the majority of fish, and also, and maybe more important, more expensive than rice.

The island is ideal for bicycle and motorbike. Discovering the mangrove forest is a must, as the underground house (more than 100 square meters!), carved by the hand of one man, puppeteer, dancer and Hindou priest, who wanted to demonstrate, by his crazy work, the veracity of an Indian legend.

Visiting the small neighboring island, Nusa Ceningan, connected by an unforgettable bridge is also recommended. Last important point, birds are protected in Nusa Lembongan and it is pleasing to see them at any time during the walk. Furthermore this destination also satisfies experienced divers who can easily go on Nusa Penida's spots, among the most famous of Indonesian archipelago.
