This is the more popular of the three islands separated from Bali by the Badung Strait. The waters surround the beaches here are excellent for surfing, diving, and snorkelling. Seaweed farming is a thriving industry on the island. The main attractions of the island are:
- Devil’s Tears: The most dramatic sight on the island, where massive waves crash with thundering fury onto limestone cliff. Some has described it as watching the entire sea throwing a tantrum
- Dream Beach: just to the west of Devil’s Tears, said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole country, but it’s best to wait until the day trippers have left. Surfers will enjoy the wild waters
- Sandy Bay (Sunset Beach): As the name says, visit for dramatic sunsets, white sands and wild waters
- Mushroom Beach: this is the main harbour for the island.
- Jungut Batu Beach: Cheap eats, cheap hotels. There is nowhere better than the Jungut Batu beachfront for sunsets. Head up to the Bukit, or the hill, for some incredible views
- Mangrove Forest: found on the north of the island. It’s best to take a boat tour to see it
- Lembongan Village: the main population centre of the island, where the locals of the island live
- Yellow Bridge: a fragile looking construct that connects this island to Nusa Ceningan island
Trivia: once upon a time the people of Bali used to consider these islands as a source of black magic and banish their least desirable to here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bali itinerary 3 days.

Nusa Lembongan Island Reviews & Ratings
you can go to sanur with boat every hour from here (6am-5pm). In the morning the view is amazing. You can also swim around here. The sand is soft but there are some trash around. Kids love to surf in the afternoon, good for beginner. Many cafe around
A chaotic place! The crew managing the transports doesn’t seem to be organized at all. Make sure you keep your eyes on your stuff and be careful when you get on and off the boats as I’m sure no insurance will help you here. Not a place for small kids
Nice place for snorkeling, banana jump,.., friendly staff.
