What an incredible day! This was my first day exploring Nusa Lembongan, Indonesia and I was pleasantly surprised. Originally, I had booked a few days on Nusa Lembongan to chill out and edit. No exploring planned.
My friend and I decided we might as well see what Nusa Lembongan had to offer and ended up having an incredible day!
First stop was a restaurant called Nano Nano that had a beautiful mangrove right in front of it! The plan was to have lunch, do a mangrove tour, and finish with some snorkeling. That didn’t exactly happen when we arrived and saw the tide was out and there was no water in the mangrove! hahaha rookie mistake. Oops. So make sure you check the tides on Nusa Lembongan if you plan on visiting the mangroves. The mangrove tour did look pretty epic if I say so myself. Next time 😉
While having lunch we made a new friend who told us about a secret cliff jumping spot on the adjacent island called Nusa Ceningan! Naturally, we had to check it out. The cliff jumping area featured in my vlog is called Blue Lagoon. I had planned on jumping but once we got there and saw the tides there was no way in hell I was getting in that water haha. If you are planning on going cliff jumping at Blue Lagoon, it’s best at low tide AND you must be a VERY strong swimmer. Our friend who jumped almost didn’t make it out of the water. Scary stuff.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised at how incredible Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan were. The islands were a great escape to the high-season Bali crowds.
Hope you enjoyed today’s travel vlog and learned what to do when visiting Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan!
