1. Road trip
Lembongan island and Ceningan are car-less , there is no traffic at all , so that make a good road trip with motorcycle around the island , during your road trip your eye will be pleased with a such beautiful view from tropical island with those coconut trees , the white-sand beach that surrounding the island , The hills with breathtaking view and expect the roosters running wild on the road, the dogs and sometimes monkey also appear , but its pretty rare.
2.Do A Snorkelling Trip
This island is well known for many great spots. Go on a tour early morning starting at Nusa Penida, where you can swim with Mantra Rays, then continue across choppy waters to Nusa Cenengan and swim in the lagoon. You can see some of the best reefs and underwater wildlife you never see in a long time. If you can time it right the manta rays are incredible to see as well. Later, go back to Lembongan and just 20+ meters offshore discover beautiful underwater life. With crystal blue calm water, the reef is full of life and well worth the money
3. Visit Mangrove Forest in Nusa Lembongan
Hire a local boat, paddle boat, gondola, stand up paddle board or for less than IDR 100 000 (you may have to pay a bit more) and discover this quiet, relaxing and magical place. The forest is unique, and you can spot some beautiful birds if you are quiet enough. There is a small entry fee to get to the Mangrove Forest road, but that’s only 30-50 000 depending on the person standing at the entrance.
4. Go across the bridge to Nusa Ceningan
Travel south-east to discover half way through a bridge, which will take you across to island next door. Turn right do go around and check out the beaches or left to get on top of the mountain. The road isn’t the best one, and it takes some skill to not to crash the moped :-). We had some close calls on the rocks that are just lying on the road and seem to be part of it. When in Nusa Ceningan take your time to wander around as it took us two separate trips to find some isolated spots and the Blue Lagoon Cliff Jump place.
5. Discover best beaches of Nusa Lembongan
Nusa Lembongan has many hidden beaches where you can relax and swim in warm blue waters.Jangut Batu Beach is the longest and seen from the hill, has great surf, but it’s not as pleasant for regular swimmers. Dream Beach (located close to Devil’s Tear), Sandy Bay, Mushroom Beach or Coconut Bay – all are great for relaxing day out where you can lay down and catch some sunshine
6. Go And See A Seaweed Farm
Nusa Lembongan seaweed farm sitting in the channel between two islands is one of the places you must visit. The suspended bridge along with small boats and seaweed plantation are just picture perfect. you can spending your time while you at one (of many) restaurants overlooking this magnificent place and watch farmers at their work until sunset
