Nusa Lembongan Island

The island of Nusa Lembongan is a quick 30 minute ferry ride off the coast of Bali. It’s a small island, much quieter and definitely more relaxed than it’s bigger Bali brother.

Picture perfect and an amazing place to take a family holiday. We had the pleasure of spending a blissful week here towards the end of 2018. A week which proved too short to take in all that Lembongan & the surrounding islands of Penida and Ceningan have to offer. Which can only mean one thing - we’ll be back!

I started drafting this post in October last year, so here she is!

A selection of Nusa Lembongan images are available to purchase from The Print Store.

Lembongan provides plenty of activities for all ages, making it a top spot for family time. Boosting world class surfbreaks a short paddle from the shore or a quick boat ride away - beginners to advanced are covered. Hire a boat with a guide for the day and explore the many stunning snorkeling & diving sites. They are spectacular.

No tropical holiday is complete for me without a slice of good old rustic island charm and Lembongan doesn’t disappoint. The stone walls, thatched roofs, bamboo screening & lush tropical plantings are a reminder that keeping it simple and using what you have at your disposal wins everytime.

Personally, I don’t think there can ever be enough Strelitzia or Bougainvillea to go around.

Several images from this trip are available to purchase through my online print store. If there is a particular image that you are interested in that is not online, feel free to get in touch.


Bali

Bali is an island of plenty.  It's hot, humid, busy, bright, crazy, scenic and lush. It is the epitome of Yin and Yang and offers the myriad of travellers who grace its shores year round, an escape to a paradise laced with a rich and vibrant culture.  Its modern culinary scene is outstanding and its architecture even more so, though for me, it's the people of Bali that make it a destination worth considering, time and time again.
