As a seasoned traveller to Nusa Lembongan we are never short of the top tips of what to do at lembongan island, so here are my top 5 things to do and look like a wise local. 1. Lunch at Hai bar & grill.

Being the first blog for this website it would be only appropriate if I share some of my first memories of traveling to Nusa Lembongan island back in the late 80s. My farther was from Lembongan however as a young man he moved to Kuta to seek better work as most did during this time. Lembongan was a tuck away fishing village that had very little interest from tourist in the 70s&80s, most holiday makers were still discovering new parts of Kuta & Legian whilst seminyak was a "long drive through the ricefields"I vividly remember the rickety boat trips I had to make as a child to Lembongan every few months for various family gatherings, the bi-annual temple ceremony in particular. The trip use to take 1-1,5 hours back in those times and passengers would often share their seat...
