The west side is the busiest part where many port and public facilities are established. From the north to the east side is a dense mangrove forest which is also a tourist spot. Along the shoreline, visitors will see many locals working on seaweed farming. In general, this island is a well-developed place to spend a tropical summer gate away.

Nusa Lembongan Beach Hopping

There are several lists of beaches to explore in Nusa Lembongan. It generally has crystal clear water with great views of the ocean. The best way to enjoy a beach retreat on this island is to lodge under leafy areas or take a dip at nearby beachside pools. The beach here is quite accessible by scooters with maintained paved roads.

Devil Tears

For travelers looking up for an extra adventure, then Devil Tears must be on the list. The popular feature of this spot is the strong waves crushing the rocky cliffs that create a misting rain afterward. It somehow reflects a rainbow that makes many people take photos at the edge of the cave.

The natural craft of cliff sides is worth exploring but is quite dangerous for a swim. Just around the corner, there is a natural infinity pool that faces the south ocean. There are many local stalls of refreshments that offer drinks and snacks. The entrance and parking tickets are free.

Dream Beach

A few miles away from the Devil Tears is the dream beach. It is surrounded by limestone cliffs with spacious logging areas to rest or sunbathe. An iconic swing on the west side offers a scenic view of the turquoise-blue water of the ocean. The rocky shore and the sudden strong current are not really good for a swim.

So far better to enjoy this beach by the poolside or beach club. Public visitors can access the infinity pool with Rp100.000 fees. There is also an additional charge for ordering a menu from the restaurant. For guests who wish to stay close to the beach, there are lots of accommodation options with well-maintained facilities here.
