Exploring Nusa Lembongan  

by on Thursday, 2 March 2006No Comment | 5,068 views

Being such a small island, Nusa Lembongan is ideal to explore by foot, motor bike or bicycle. There are very few motor vehicles on the island and the roads are quite narrow as well as being rather steep in some places. The views from the more elevated parts of the island are spectacular, especially the view of sacred Mount Agung on Bali directly across the strait from Coconuts Beach Resort.

There are many other elevated points around Nusa Lembongan which provide magnificent views of Bali, Ceningan and Penida Islands. There are two villages on Nusa Lembongan

Jungut Batu Village
This village earns its income from seaweed farming and tourists, usually surfers, divers and more recently tourists looking for the peace and tranquillity which is becoming harder to find in Bali. There are a couple of souvenir shops in the village as well as several small stores selling the usual necessities. The close proximity of this village to the famous surf breaks, Shipwrecks, Lacerations and Playgrounds, has made it an ideal place for surfers to stay since the 1970’s.

Seaweed Farming

Lembongan Village
This is the larger of the two villages on the island situated on the southern end of the island. The cultivation of seaweed is also the main occupation of these villagers. A visit to the (Goa Sigala-gala) under ground house is a must. The construction began in 1961 by one man and continued for more than 20 years, making many rooms including a kitchen, bed rooms, 6 entrances, 2 ventilation holes and a well for water.
