My friend and I are travelling to Bali this summer and have planned to stay in Nusa Lembongan for almost 5 days to get away from the busy Bali island, rest, dive (PADI OpenWater course planned).
We are then going round Bali (Menjangan, Ubud and Pemuteran) for the second week.
What is there to do on Nusa Lembongan ?
Are there any very nice beaches to get too by scooter ? bike ? any other activities ?
Nesu Lembongan is probably not ideal for a week-long stay, you'll probably get bored. It's very very quiet so it's typically better suited to couples. Most of the beaches you can probably walk to, and you can organize pretty much any kind activity if you ask around. I'd say a few nights is sufficient if you want to see the island, as it is quite gorgeous, and for a little more action head over to Gili Trawangan where there's a little more action but without the craziness of Kuta/Seminyak,
Came across this article recently, that had a great list of lesser known spots in Bali - http://www.travelfish.org/blogs/indonesia/2014/07/08/bali-is-not-an-over-touristed-hellhole/
Mentioned in this answer:
Lembongan is a very laid back small island on the south east of bali. So secluded sometimes they have problem with electricity, and the key to the motorcycle just left at the motor cycle.
A nice place to just relax and do nothing, or taking morning stroll down the beach. Not much to do in Lembongan otherthan diving and snorkling. there are spot for a cliff diving in Lembongan. if youre lucky you can see school of dolphin in the morning.
Its a very small island, u can just get around with motor bike.
let me know if you have more questions!
