Here are some things I did during my stay at Lembongan, and I really enjoyed it! In Lembongan, the best place is unwind is definitely by the beach itself.
The seashore itself is lined with large sweeping palm trees, which lean out over the pristine white sand; the esplanade offers an unmatched selection of restaurants, with fantastic ocean views.
The daybeds were spacious and comfortable. I can just lie down all day and watch the sunset and the ocean, it is extremely peaceful and it does make me feel like the luckiest person to be there. No complaints :)
We'd stroll around the neighborhood during the evening and decide which restaurant to try on for dinner. It's always great to walk around after sunset when it's not too hot! You can easily spot temples along the main road, which all of their stonework is very inspiring! They're heavily sculpted in a traditional Balinese style which makes it a unique piece of art. Handmade accesories are sold everywhere too.
Happy hour + movies under the stars. Sounds pretty promising to me! Authentic Balinese cuisine can be found everywhere on the island! Of course, if you're looking for something towards Western, they do a pretty good job too. Dinners are normally priced at RM40-RM50 for two person at a standard restaurant which is pretty cheap compared to eating in KL!
Snorkelling is one of my favourite past time on an island, the tremendous snorkelling area at Lembongan island would be Manta Point. Its a popular area for divers to spot some huge majestic manta rays. It was such an incredible experience for me because it was my very first time spotting a gigantic manta which was about 5meters away from me! It was pretty insane! I was too excited hence why there were no pictures taken.The current was pretty strong on that particular day, we got a terrible seasick towards the end of our snorkelling session. But overall it was all good! Manage to spot some giant fishes too.
. We even befriended some locals and they brought us to their secret spot for snorkelling! There were basically no other people around besides us. It feels kinda great to have the whole place to ourselves.
The water was warm and crystal clear too! When things started to become messy and clumsy....
One place that I'd recommend you guys to go - Dream beach. To get there, you can rent a scooter ( if you know how to ride one) to go around the island or get someone to send you there like we did! You can watch the details on my travelogue :)
The island may only be small but the rugged coastline has some of the most stunning beaches to be found anywhere on earth . If you're a surfer, this might be the right place for you. But the cashmere soft sands, clear sparkling waters and lovely settings aren’t just for surfers alone.
Infinity pool facing the glorious beach. You can enjoy the facilities at the dream beach's clubhouse by paying RM15 per person! Wether its relaxing by the pool, topping up your tan or read a book on the comfortable bean bags!
Simple lunch with a view. One of the finest lunch in my life.
One of the activity I truly miss the most would be dinner by the beach, watching the sky darken while the sun sinks lower on the horizon.
There were other places I wished I've visited in Lembongan but there were only so little time! So if you're planning a trip to Lembongan, make sure you check out mushroom bay and the deck cafe on my behalf!!
Next travel post would be Bali! Stay tuned :)
