Nusa Lembongan is a smaller island off Bali's south coast quickly gaining popularity with the tourist crowd. Nothing like the bustling streets of Bali's main islands, Nusa Lembongan is a relaxing holiday destination undisturbed by street vendors or traffic.
As a tropical island, Nusa Lembongan's most popular activities revolve around its beautiful clear waters with surfing, snorkelling and diving. Surfing is extremely popular so the surf breaks are often crowded but there are a number of white sandy beaches away from the main areas that are not as busy. The waters surrounding the island are teeming with colourful coral and an abundance of marine and plant life that make snorkelling and diving a fascinating and unique experience.
Nusa Lembongan's attractions are mostly based around the island's stunning natural environment. With manmade attractions limited to temples and a picturesque suspension bridge, it is Nusa Lembongan's golden beaches, scenic coasts and breathtaking sunsets that draw so many holiday visitors each year. Of course the water sports are the most popular way to spend your holiday time in Nusa Lembongan with jet skis, parasailing, wake boarding, banana boats and sea kayaking all available for hire.
Nusa Lembongan's weather is similar to the main island of Bali but is a bit drier, especially between May and September. Although the weather is pleasant pretty much year round, the peak of the wet season is from January to February and conditions during this time are less favourable.
Studded with coastal paths, Nua Lembongan's accommodation and restaurants are linked and offer fantastic views of Bali's famous sunsets, making them ideal for walking. The nearby island of Nusa Ceningan is also accessible on foot by crossing over the beautiful suspension bridge. However bicycles are available for hire from many hotels and the mostly flat roads of Nusa Lembongan make them an affordable and efficient way of getting around the island.
