Nusa Lembongan, Indonesia

Finding its popularity over recent years, Nusa Lembongan has still retained a quiet island charm, away from the hawkers, crazy nightclubs and traffic jams. Instead you’ll discover powdery white beaches lapped by crystal-clear waters, rolling waves, mature mangrove forests and low limestone cliffs. A true escape from the rest of the world’s chaos, but still enough to keep you interested and intrigued. Explore unique mangrove forests and local wildlife by canoe, or enjoy a relaxing spa day.

Nusa Lembongan is a particular gem for those who chase tropical waves attracting surfers from all over the world. The snorkeling and diving is also exceptional. Even if you have never gone before, your chance can be now! You can gain diving qualifications at the Lembongan Dive Center.

Despite being a small island, there is a great selection of surprisingly varied restaurants. You can find Mexican, Chinese and even French-Asian fusion food here, representing everything from the sophisticated high-end to relaxed beachfront cafes.

There is no clear answer to when the best time to travel to Nusa Lembongan is, as it depends on what you are looking for. Between May to September is when most people who love sunshine and blue skies are visiting. November to March offer less crowds and better discounts on diving adventures. If there is a time to avoid for those who hate the rain, the height of the rainy season is January and February.
