For those who have already been cornered out by the beaches of Kuta or Seminyak, finding a new nook to linger seems necessary. The good news is, Nusa Lembongan can be the utmost option for your day trip plan. It’s one of Bali’s an outer islands – less than 2 hours to cross there, where all you have to do is just drive to Sanur, hop onto a boat, and sit tight cruising off the coast.
Cuddling with Dream Beach
First thing to do once stepping on the island is to cuddle with the beaches. The secluded nature with plenty of romantic viewpoints of Dream beach will accompany you to building amazement to this majestic landscape. More attractive is when the Devils’ Tear, a coastal feature that smashes waves onto the inverted cliff edge, happens to entertain. It’s a truly hair-raising experience.
Dipping in the Deep Manta Ray
After stretching your mind with scenery, now is the most fun part: to swim with the 20-foot gentle giants, a more casual dip in the sea with a fish snorkeling tour. It is more relaxed and less time-consuming when you’re pushed for time, but still offers a reef brimming fish of all shapes and sizes.
Unwinding for Sunset
The beaches across this small island are more than suitable for sunbathing. And approaching sunset is the best time to do that. Sandy Bay and Blue Corner Dive are the two main locations for laying yourself down. You’ll need to book a table in advance to enjoy Sandy Bay (Jungutbatu, Nusa Penida, T: +62 828 9700 5656, sandybaylembongan.com) and their beachside seafood experience. It has captivating scenery and a lot of delicious cocktails. While Blue Corner Dive (Jalan Raya Jungut Batu, Jungutbatu, Nusa Penida, T: +62 877 6137 7718, bluecornerdive.com) has a more relaxed vibe with their beach-club-style bar that has plenty of bottled beer and a wide tapas menu to enjoy both day and night.
