Lembongan’s Best Beaches
Let us take you on a tour of Lembongan’s best beaches.
Nusa Lembongan and neighbouring island Ceningan have beautiful beaches, making it a water lover’s paradise for holiday makers. There are beaches suitable for families with young children, snorkelling, surfing, catching some sun-rays, beachcombing & beachside bintangs!
The waters surrounding Nusa Lembongan are crystal clear with incredible visibility found in few places around the world.
This is the main bay in Nusa Lembongan, where the majority of boats from Bali arrive. It is home to Lembongan’s 3 surf breaks (Playgrounds, Lacerations & Shipwrecks) and is also great for SUP boarding. The northern stretch is ideal for “beach-time” with its white sand and turquoise waters, the inner lagoon is generally calm & protected by the outer reef. There are plenty of beachfront restaurants where you can dine with your feet in the sand and enjoy a Bintang or cocktail or two! The perfect place to also watch Lembongan’s beautiful sunsets. Jungut Batu has the largest range of accommodation in regards to budget and style options including private villas, some of Lembongan’s most popular resorts & great value beachfront bungalows.
Considered by many as Lembongan’s BEST beach, Coconut Beach is nestled between Jungut Batu and Tamraind Bay. It is a favourite with everyone, ideal for families with kids who want to swim and play on the beach ( there is also shade under the trees), perfect for snorkelling, and the place for surfers to paddle out to Playgrounds or onto Lacerations surf breaks. We have a range of villas, resorts & bungalows all in close walking distance or it can be accessed from Tamarind Bay via a track around the headland. If you are staying in Jungut Batu on “the hill” this will be your local beach.
Located between Coconut Beach and Mushroom Bay, the beach is best suited for swimming and snorkelling on mid to high tide. The far northern end has a beautiful mini lagoon which is accessible on all tides, making it a stunning spot for beach lovers staying in Tamarind Bay. It is a great bay for SUP boarding, and on a larger swell a fun left hand wave can form from the headland across the middle of the bay. We have a range of Villas & Bungalow style accommodation in Tamarind Bay which are all in walking distance to the beach. Many of TLT’s private villas are primely located on the beachfront of Tamarind Bay.
Renowned by many as the most protected beach and most suitable for children, great for swimming , SUP boarding & snorkelling. The northern end has an all-day dedicated swimming area as there are commercial boats bringing visitors into the bay, mainly from 11am – 3pm, making it best early in the morning and from mid afternoon at the main beach area. There are some great beach front restaurants to enjoy, offering bean bags and relaxed feet in the sand style hospitality. Mushroom Bay also has a great range of accommodation including, private Villas, Resorts and Bungalows.
Sandy Bay is home to Sandy Bay Beach Club and some of Lembongan’s favourite private villas. Sandy Bay is not a swimming beach, with large swells and strong currents. However, on mid-low tide it is the perfect for kids playing in the sand and rock pools. Sandy Bay Beach Club also offers an all day beach club and is renowned for it’s spectacular sunsets.
Dream Beach is a stunning beach for relaxing, swimming is only advised for the experienced, as there can be rips, large swell and tides. It is a favourite stop off point for day trip visitors, so if you are looking for some solitude it is best to visit early mornings and late afternoons. We recommend you check out Dream Beach Huts.
Secret Beach at Mahana Point
Located at the southern end of Nusa Ceningan. Secret Beach is a stunning cove of sandy white beach, a crystal clear waters that fill the rock pools and lagoons. If you have a scooter, this should be on your list, especially if you have a partner who is an experienced surfer as it overlooks Mahana Point surf break. We list a range of villas and bungalows on Nusa Ceningan.
Please take care at all times as the waters surrounding Nusa Lembongan are renowned for extreme tidal movements and strong currents. We love our beaches and hope you will enjoy some Lembongan’s best beaches on your next holiday to Bali.
