Best beaches in Nusa Lembongan, Bali

Looking for an ideal spot for a beach day in our favorite of the three Nusas? We spent an entire month in this beautiful little island, learning all its secrets and, of course, visiting all it’s beaches.

Surprisingly, beaches in Nusa Lembongan are quite diverse: Mangroves on the east, rocky and with strong currents on the south, white sand beaches on the west and even a lagoon region between Lembongan and Ceningan.

This guide includes all our favorite beaches in Nusa Lembongan.

For the tropical vibes

This turned out to be the best choice for a perfect beach day. It has lots of venues by the beach, the currents aren't too strong and the sand is just about good enough. We also love the views to Mt. Agung from this beach.

This is a really long stretch beach, so even though boats dock here there is plenty of space for swimmers. You won't even notice them. The northern end of this beach is referred to as Mahagiri beach because of the resort with the same name. It is the best spot for a beach day, but the resort there is currently closed and there isn't much life there now. 

For the views

This beach really displays beautiful colors due to the rocky bottom. Sadly it is full of boats and we didn't quite like it as a beach-place. There is a cliff on the north end of the beach with a small opening - you can walk through it during low tide to access secret beach, which is much quieter. You can also drive there directly.

You can also get to the top of that cliff to enjoy magnificent views - this is our secret place. Make sure you bring mosquito repellent.

Best for sunsets

Sandy Bay Beach is next to Dream Beach, on the other side of Devil's Tear. This beach is perfect to watch the water splashes from Devil's Tear without having to go there. It is also great for sunsets. 

This beach is famous because of Sandy Bay Beach Club, which is a great venue with some of the best vegan Tacos in Bali!

The best sand

This is a very small beach located between Jungut Batu and Tamarind Beach. You can access it only by foot from Jungut Batu, if you follow the path that takes you to the famous Deck (the venue). 

Due to it's proximity to Coconuts Beach Resort, some people will know this beach as Coconut Beach.​​​​​​

It is a beautiful beach, with probably the best sand in the entire island, a great view and soft waters perfect to swim and enjoy a beach day. Only disadvantage? Well, there is nothing there so you really need to bring everything there. Maybe in normal times you can walk to one of the restaurants to get food and drinks and head back to this incredible beach.

We spent three years obsessing about the three beautiful islands of the coast of Bali: Nusa Lembongan, Ceningan and Penida, so when we finally had the chance we made the most out of it. After staying one month in Nusa Lembongan we decided to make a one week stop in the trendiest of the three Nusas - Nusa Penida.

This guide includes all the information you will need for your next visit: what to do, where to stay and where to eat. We covered all of these and more.


Nusa Penida

We approached Kelingking beach with a lot of excitement…and ignorance. The truth is that we’ve been seeing magazine worthy pictures of this incredible place on our Instagram for years and, in fact, this beach has been on our radar even before it became one of the most famous beaches on the world - but we never really thought that most of the people don’t get to see the beach. 

Kelingking beach is the most challenging hike we’ve ever done - at least to a beach. So don’t make the same mistake we did, go at the right time, prepared and with plenty of water and you should be ok…oh, and better leave those 12kg of camera gear at the top!

We spent three years obsessing about the three beautiful islands of the coast of Bali: Nusa Lembongan, Ceningan and Penida, so when we finally had the chance we made the most out of it. We moved to Nusa Lembongan for one month in February 2021 and made the most out of our time there to get you all the details you need for your next visit. This guide includes all the information you will need for your next visit: from where to go, to where to get groceries - whether you’re planning to stay there for just a weekend or an entire year.


Nusa Lembongan

You don’t have to visit Nusa Penida to understand the potential it has as a beach destination and why we consider it to have the best beaches in Bali. Beaches in plural because there are a couple that could be consider in a world’s best beaches list. Surely Diamond Beach in Nusa Penida is in the top of our list, but there are several other’s to be consider as world class beaches - Suwehan beach is one of them.

If you made it here it is most likely that you already know a little bit about Suwehan beach. Maybe you saw it on a video on YouTube (hopefully ours) or on a post on social media. Then, like us back then, you’re trying to figure out whether it is worth the trip and, more importantly, how difficult it is to get there. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.
