Relax in the Blue Lagoon on Nusa Ceningan


Blue Lagoon is a stunning spot with waters that are so azure, it seems out of this world. You can marvel at it on Nusa Ceningan, the small sister island of Lembongan. When a big swell is coming and hits the cliff, the water will splash high to the sky. Very impressive! Also, just of the edge of the cliff used to be a cliff jumping point, which is not running any longer due to safety issues. Secret Tip: Blue Lagoon is especially beautiful during sunset.

Surfing on Nusa Lembongan


Nusa Lembongan is home to some great waves that are surf-able all year round. The three main breaks offer something for beginners up to pro surfers. But watch out where you step – Corals are all over and the water is very shallow. Why cuts in Bali heal slower than anywhere else?


  • Playgrounds: Has a fun, long left and (depending on the tide) a shorter barrelling right wave
  • Lacerations: This right wave can offer some serious tube time.
  • Shipwreck’s: A right break for the more experienced surfer.
  • Ceningan’s: A 15 minute boat ride will get you to a fun small left break.

Be enchanted by the sunset at the rather less romantic sounding “Devil’s Tear” point on Nusa Lembongan. This spot offers fabulous views over the ocean and fun water blows when the swell hits the cliff.

Seaweed Farming on Nusa Lembongan


Although a bit smelly, the seaweed farms in Nusa Lembongan are beautiful and interesting at the same time. Watch how the locals harvest the seaweed and find out what they do with it.

Curious how Bali used to be in the old days?

Hop over by boat from Nusa Lembongan and explore Nusa Penida! Some of you might have already stumbled over the name “Nusa Penida” in some blogs or travel guides but did not pay much attention to it as there are other supposedly “more exciting” things to cross off an Instagram bucket list.


Well, add one to your list, you will not regret it! Nusa Penida has uncountable coconut trees all over the island, amazing sights and up to this point very little tourism. How to get there:  Take the fast boat from Nusa Lembongan or combine a snorkelling trip with drop-off on Penida.
