BEST THINGS TO DO IN NUSA CENINGAN
NUSA CENINGAN ISLAND IN A (COCO)NUT SHELL
Visiting Nusa Ceningan will provide countless hours of exploration and fun. It is very easy to spend days soaking up the sun while cruising the tropics on your scooter.
The Nusa Islands are closely connected making it a breeze to see them all. Nusa Ceningan, connected to Nusa Lembongan by the iconic Yellow Bridge is a hop, skip, and jump away. So, grab your keys, head on over and enjoy the many things to do in Nusa Ceningan.
TAKE A SNAP AT THE YELLOW BRIDGE
Before crossing from one island to the next, get a quick snap at the famous Yellow Bridge. Peaceful in the morning and bustling throughout the day, this famous landmark is an excellent entrance to your day of adventure.
GRAB BREKKIE AT NEXT LEVEL CAFE
Top up the tank with a tasty brekkie and delicious coffee at the quaint, Next Level Cafe. Offering ocean views, we assure you that there is no better spot to start your day. Well-known for their colourful smoothie bowls, your belly and camera roll will be full.
CRUISE UP THE CENINGAN CLIFFS
Take a drive up the rocky and windy road to the Ceningan cliffs. The ride is bumpy, but the reward is worth it. Sit on a swing and breathe in the all-encompassing views of Nusa Penida. The enormity will make you feel small but grateful for this wonderful life. Cool down before leaving; sip on fresh fruit juice, in their infinity pool, under the sun.
Imagine a beautiful beach with turquoise water, palm trees, and good waves. Now take that image and better it. This is Secret Beach. Whether you are looking to surf or catch a tan, this shoreline will tick the box. Located at the southern-most tip of Nusa Ceningan, this spot is a true gem.
CLIFF JUMP AT MAHANA POINT
Calling all adrenaline junkies, this one is for you! A few steps away from Secret beach is the cliffside restaurant, Mahana Point. It is here where you will find 2 cliff-jumping opportunities. Jump from the smallest ledge, or take the plunge off the highest peak. There is something for everyone. Overlooking the surf break, this is the ideal location for some lunch and a cold coconut, too.
MARVEL AT BLUE LAGOON
Monday blues aren’t necessarily a bad thing. They tend to look a little different when visiting a tropical island. Especially at Blue Lagoon. For us, they represent sunny skies, white sand beaches, and water so blue that it deserves its own Pantone.
Visiting Blue Lagoon is a must when looking for things to do in Nusa Ceningan. Stroll along the limestone cliffs and marvel at the waves crashing up against the rocks. Beauty such as this will have you hypnotised and left in awe. Bring a towel, find some shade, and take the time to be still in nature.
Hidden within a Balinese village overlooking a serene bay, lies The Nomad Bar. This is no ordinary bar, it is a celebration of the adventures we dream of taking. This eight-seater bar resembles late-night taverns where wanderers gathered to plot their next journey.
The Nomad Bar is all about elegant and thought-provoking tipples. They use ingredients from around the world – from saffron to Za’atar, Rum to Arak. Guests can enjoy drinking into the late hours of the night in a setting that calls for intimate conversations.
We can’t define the architecture, so come over and see what memory it ignites.
You will always be welcomed, with a cocktail and with a smile.
