Nusa Lembongan

Nusa Lembongan Island – Klungkung – Bali is an island which can be reached only 40 minutes by fast boat from Sanur harbor. It is part of Klungkung regency.

Nusa Lembongan is approximately 8km² in size and is one of three neighboring islands, the others being much larger Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan. The three islands are separated from Bali by the Badung Strait. Two main beach areas have traditionally attracted visitors:

Jungut Batu in the northwest is the bigger of the two. Jungut Batu also is a small port to disembark passengers from Sanur harbor. This is the area which traditionally attracted backpackers and surfers to the island. The hillside to the south of Jungut Batu known as the Bukit (the hill) has been developed. The views from the Bukit are perhaps the best on Nusa Lembongan. Sunsets are best viewed along the main Jungut Batu beachfront.

Mushroom Bay to the southwest of Jungut Batu beside well-known as a picturesque bay with the Mount Agung view, it is also a small port for fast boat from Sanur to disembark the passengers. It has a great white sandy beach, along with some beach front restaurants.
