Nusa Ceningan

Nusa Ceningan


There is a picturesque narrow suspension bridge crossing the lagoon between Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, which makes it quite easy to explore the network of tracks on foot or by bicycle. Besides the lagoon filled with frames for seaweed farming you’ll see several small agricultural plots and a fishing village. The island is quite hilly and, if you’re up for it, you can get glimpses of great scenery while wandering or cycling around the rough tracks.

To really savour Nusa Ceningan, take an overnight tour of the island with JED, the cultural organisation that gives people an in-depth look at village and cultural life. Trips include family accommodation in a village, local meals, a fascinating tour with seaweed workers and transport to/from Bali.

There’s a surf break at Ceningan reef, but it’s very exposed and only surfable when the other breaks are too small.
