Visit the Mangroves
The mangrove forest along the eastern side of Nusa Lembongan is extensive. The thick, shady tangle provides shelter to a number of interesting species.
Although touring the mangrove forest is not “big” among the things to do in Nusa Lembongan, it is a good option for bird lovers, especially ones in search of kingfishers.
The mangroves can be explored independently with a kayak, or walk to Mangrove Point on the northeastern end of the island. Numerous guides in need of work will offer their boat services with tours as short as 20 minutes.
Visit Dream Beach
One of the main things to do in Nusa Lembongan is exploring Nusa Lembongan beaches. Dream Beach is right near Devils Tear, and although it is beautiful, it also has pretty strong waves, so not so great for swimming. It does have nice white sand and a couple of places to eat and overlook the beach.
Follow signs to Nusa Ceningan Viewpoint
The viewpoint sits at the highest point of the island. There is also a nice restaurant or bar to relax. When coming from Lembongan, take a left from the bridge and follow the signs. The road is up and at times hard to drive, but the view is so worth it once you at the top.
See the Devil's Tear
Most popular of the attractions on dry land is the finger of lava jutting out from the island known as the Devil’s Tear. Waves crash along the sea cliffs sending spray high into the air. The green algae and blue water add colorful contrast to photos of the drama.
You can get to the Devil’s Tear area by walking north from Dream Beach or south from Sunset Beach. Shared public transportation is also easy to find, or you can rent a scooter and add the viewpoints to a day of beach hopping. The lava rocks are sharp and brittle, not so easy to enjoy barefooted.
Explore the Panorama Point
If you arrive at Mushroom Bay and then taxied to Jungut Batu, then you probably passed Panorama Point once already. It is located between the two at the top of a hill and is probably the best view on Nusa Lembongan. From here, you can go to Jungut Batu, the bay, and Mt Agung, which dominates everything else.
The best time to visit Panorama Point is at sunrise before everyone else has woken up. The chances are generally greater too that you will get clear skies. Visiting Panorama Point during the day can be a little frustrating because hawkers will often pester you. It is more sad than annoying though sometimes, because the hawkers are children who looked forced to do the job.
