Nusa Lembongan Getting around

By foot

Nusa Lembongan is a nice place to walk, with coastal paths linking nearly all the guest houses, hotels and restaurants. Most walks will take less than two hours. The less developed southwestern area of the island has some spectacular coast paths which provide easy walking, great views back to Bali, and spectacular sunsets. You can cross by foot to the small neighbouring island of Nusa Ceningan via a scenic suspension bridge.

From the end of the beach of Jungut Batu it is a 35 minutes walk following the coast to Mushroom Bay.

By bike

Bicycles can be rented at most hotels and guest-houses, and the mainly flat roads are quite well surfaced. This is great way to see the island at your own pace. Expect to pay about Rp 20,000-30,000 per day.

By motorbike

Motorbikes are also widely available for rent, but may be unnecessary given the short distances involved — the island is only about four km end-to-end. Expect to pay Rp 60,000-100,000 per day, depending on how busy it is. Local boys are more than happy to transport you on the back of their motorbike for a fee.

By truck

There are virtually no cars on Nusa Lembongan, and any business or local resident wishing to bring one to the island needs special permission from the village elders. This will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. Local four-wheeled transport is available though in the form of basic pick-up trucks which most hotels and restaurants use. These are useful for transport to and from the boat transfer point when you are likely to have heavy bags, but otherwise not really necessary.

By boat

Local boatmen are willing to take you by boat from Jungut Batu to Mushroom Bay. One way should cost about Rp 30,000. A return trip can be negotiated down to Rp 50,000.
