Nusa Lembongan Island Day Trip

DAY & OVERNIGHT CRUISES

Explore Nusa Lembongan

BALI PROVINCE

Though no longer the secret paradise it once was, Bali’s tiny neighbouring island still remains an island where surfers outnumber those occupying the growing number of boutique luxury hotels. It’s an island of simple pleasures and easy-going vibes, of soft pale sands, exquisite sea views that stretch all the way back to Bali, and of an indulgence which comes with its tropical locale.

On our Day Cruises, you can explore all that Nusa Lembongan’s sublime coastline has to offer, from spotting the pods of playful dolphins that frolic the warm shallows, to sailing close by the verdant mangrove landscapes of the island’s north, to enjoying the surprising number of fantastic restaurants.

We take in the island’s most popular surf and snorkelling spots, its low limestone cliffs, and its coves and inlets, not least the exquisite Mushroom Bay. Here you can play at being Robinson Crusoe, absorb the incredible surrounds while flopping down on the soft sand of the calm beaches that are rapidly becoming an all-time Indonesia favourite, or even head out over the smooth sparkling turquoise waters in a kayak or on a stand-up paddleboard.

Beneath the waves, but just as accessible, are Nusa Lembongan’s coral reefs, habitats that simply buzz with life – large and small, crowded by more than 550 species of reef fish of amazing colours, and almost 250 different types of coral. Its’ reefs are also frequented by everything from the impressive Mola Mola (Sunfish) that typically weigh between 250 – 1000kg, to the critically-endangered Olive Ridley Turtle, which have been nesting on Sunset Beach on the southwest of the island for millennia.

Our Day Cruises also offer a unique way of experiencing the coastal wonders like the Devil’s Tear, an exploding mass of sea spray that envelops the rocks as waves crash into the promontory on which it sits. Crowded and slippery to see by land, from our boats you’ll have a front-row seat to this most impressive of natural phenomena!

Nusa Lembongan Day Cruise

Nusa Lembongan is a standard stop over on our day cruises and one place that will surely not disappoint. A glimpse of Bali of the past this little gem still has no vehicles and an aray of amazing lunch spots hidden in the many gorgeous coves on the western coastline. Pristine White sand beaches and unbelievable turquoise waters makes Nusa Lembongan a Pulau favorite and a must see when your in Bali on holiday.

When to Visit Nusa Lembongan

The best time to visit Nusa Lembongan depends on your priorities. For sunny skies and calm seas ideal for water activities like diving, snorkelling, and surfing, aim for the dry season, April to September. This is going to be high and peak season, so expect more crowds and slightly higher prices.

Shoulder seasons (November to March) offer a good compromise. You’ll encounter some rain showers, but they tend to be brief and prices are lower. The sunsets during this time can be particularly stunning.

Nusa Lembongan day trips are available year-round, so you can experience the island’s beauty any time of year.
