I just got back late last night from another exhilarating trip to Bali. 3 days in Ubud (Read: Rustic Green. Winging it with Airbnb in Ubud. 50/50) with a day spent on a group of 3 islands south-east of Nusa Dua, Bali that form part of the Lesser Sunda Islands – Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida and tiny Nusa Ceningan sandwiched in between. Nusa Lembongan is a 30 minute speed boat ride from Sanur, Bali and is well worth the visit for its untouched beaches, gorgeous rugged landscape and clear blue waters.
From the ferry point we rented vespas to Mushroom Bay, where we engaged a small boat to take us to Crystal Bay, Nusa Penida for snorkelling.
Scenic, deserted Crystal Bay – Nusa Penida
Seaweed farming – Nusa Ceningan
Cute and cosy le Pirate, Nusa Ceningan for lunch and a quick swim. With little wooden sea-facing huts available for $40 per night, a white infinity pool, this place had a great vibe and is extremely popular with surfers.
