Nusa Ceningan is the smallest, nestled between Lembongan and Penida. While it’s not nearly as popular as Nusa Lembongan, it’s quieter and has less traffic.
You can take travel by motorbike from Lembongan to Ceningan via the famous yellow bridge.
It’s pretty easy to explore the highlights of Nusa Ceningan within a day! Some of the popular places include the famous The Sand Nusa Ceningan, the Blue Lagoon and Mahana Point Jump Cliff.
The Sand Ceningan is setting the scene with cool island vibes and its own take on beach-side lounging. Located on the waterfront of Nusa Ceningan, this latest hot spot has been inspired by a local who loves a good time and knows how to share his passion for life with others.
Laze on lounges, dip in the crystal clear waters, hang out on the canoe hammock or sip cocktails on the swings…. there is no better place to get into holiday mode.
Open for all day dining, stay for the day or come at sunset as the sun kisses the ocean and your plan your next day in paradise.
The Nusa Ceningan Blue Lagoon is a rocky cove of the brightest blue water I’ve ever seen! I was amazed by the beautiful colour of the water and this amazing little cove.
Did you know you can cliff jump at Nusa Ceningan Blue Lagoon? Fellow adrenaline-junkies, this is for you!! There are relatively safe jumps from heights of 4m, 6m, 8m and 13.5m. To get out of the water once you are in you will swim to your right back towards the coast and clamber up the cliffs when you find a gap in the waves. If the swell looks too big maybe save the jump for another day as you don’t want to get stuck unable to get out. Make sure you assess the conditions thoroughly before jumping here as getting out can be dangerous.
*PS, I wasn’t that brave to do a cliff jump! Plus it was high tide.
Mahana Point Jump Cliff
Another highlight of Nusa Ceningan? Mahana Point Jump Cliff! It is another great spot on the Nusa Islands for cliff jump and surfing. Unlike Nusa Ceningan Blue Lagoon, at Mahana Point Jump Cliff, there is better access with ladders installed at the cliffs.
A small bar sits on the point overlooking the surf break and has a 10m and 5m platform to jump off. However, you have to pay per jump. It’s 25000 rupiah (SGD 2.50) for the 5m jump and 50,000 rupiah (SGD 5) for the 10m jump.
Mahana Point Jump Cliff is a pretty cool place to spend the rest of your day there, relaxing, having some drinks and finger food and watch the epic sunset!
