Are you planning your fabulous trip to Bali and wondering where you should go? Because indeed, Bali has a lot of natural wonders to be admired and soaked in. Since you’re into white-sand beaches and pristine waters, and planning to do some water sports, you’d better look at some small islands off the coast of mainland Bali, because there you would find some of the best beaches. One of the small islands you can consider visiting is Nusa Lembongan. Located on the southeast of Bali separated by Badung Strait, neighboring the small islands of Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan, lies Nusa Lembongan: an even smaller island that dwells unmatched beauty within. Being a part of the Klungkung Regency in Bali Province, Nusa Lembongan only comprises an 8 8-kilometer square area with a permanent population estimated at 5,000. The economy of this island mostly relies on tourism. Due to the small size of the island, Nusa Lembongan is populated by very few cars, therefore the main transportation modes for the people are only by scooters and foot.


Since Nusa Lembongan is pretty small, you can explore the island within a one-day trip and still have an awesome adventure there. Curious about what to do on Nusa Lembongan Island on a day trip?


1. Devil's Tears: Devil's Tears is a dramatic natural attraction on the southwestern coast of Nusa Lembongan. It's named for the powerful and awe-inspiring waves that crash against the rocky cliffs, creating explosive bursts of seawater. The views of the ocean, especially during sunset, are breathtaking. Be cautious when visiting as the waves can be dangerous, and there are no barriers to prevent people from getting too close to the edge.


2. Dream Beach: Dream Beach is one of the most famous and picturesque beaches on Nusa Lembongan. It's known for its soft white sand, clear turquoise waters, and stunning cliffs. It's an excellent spot for sunbathing, swimming, and taking in the beautiful surroundings. There are beachfront bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal or refreshments.


3. Yellow Bridge: The Yellow Bridge connects Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, two neighboring islands. This iconic, brightly colored bridge is a significant landmark in the area and provides easy access between the two islands. It's an ideal spot for taking photos and enjoying panoramic views of the surrounding waters.


4. Seaweed Farms: Nusa Lembongan has a long history of seaweed farming. You can visit these seaweed farms to learn about the traditional methods used to cultivate seaweed and their role in the local economy. It's an interesting cultural experience and a chance to see how this marine resource is grown and harvested.


5. Panorama Point: Panorama Point is a popular viewpoint on Nusa Lembongan that offers panoramic vistas of the island, the ocean, and the neighboring Nusa Ceningan. It's a great place to watch the sunrise or sunset, and you can reach it easily by motorbike or on foot.


6. Mangrove Tour: Nusa Lembongan has a mangrove forest along its northeastern coast, and you can explore it on guided mangrove tours. These tours often involve kayaking through the dense mangrove trees, where you can observe the unique ecosystem, spot various bird species, and learn about the importance of mangroves in coastal protection and biodiversity.


Of course, if you’d like to dive it’s better to allocate a few days on the island, but if you only have one day, a day trip to those destinations also suffice to create a pleasant holiday experience in Nusa Lembongan island.
