Between Bali and Lombok
We arrived on Nusa Lembongan by boat from Sanur/ Bali. The boat took about half an hour, but the whole trip took around 2,5 hours, including taxi ride, check-in, waiting time and boat ride. The island has two popular beach areas, where the boats drop you off: Mushroom bay and Jungut Batu. Since all the dive schools are in Jungut Batu, we spend most of our time there.
We came to Nusa Lembongan especially to dive with manta rays, which we did and therefore enjoyed our stay a lot. Jungut Baru is not a beautiful place, but if you rent a motorbike (which everyone does…), you can easily visit other beaches, the mangroves and Nusa Cenningan. It’s a green island with tourist spots and still a lot of nature.
