Traveling to Bali was more of an extended relaxing holiday segment of our S.E. Asia adventure. We had been there before and therefore done a lot of exploring however, we always like to discover a new place, or activity when re visiting somewhere. With this in mind we agreed to take at least a 4-7day break from relaxing and spice it up with a little adventure. This time round we decided to travel to, two smaller islands located off te south-east cost of Bali, Nusa Lembondang & and his tiny neighbour Nusa Ceningans.
Day 1: Nusa Lembondang
Backpack filled with the usual map, snacks and water. Fernando takes the moped for a 1 min test drive ( it’s been a while) then we hit the road! First stop, Coffee, at this hill-top cafe. Apparently the best coffee on the Island ……the adventure begins.
On our way to get this amazing coffee we enter the forest, going up and up the hill with forest on each side, then suddenly the road opens up and on our right hand side we see this amazing view over – naturally we stop for a photo shoot.
The view over Jungutbatu
All smiles after a great cuppa coffee, we set of on the trail again .
The Seaweed farms
The women seem to do a lot of the manual labour type jobs here on the island. working the large seaweed farms is one of those jobs the men take care of the kids and work in the shops , bars and restaurants.
The docks- unloading the import
everything appears to arrive by boat you name it , TV’s , fridges, materials and the women unload the boats and bring the merchandise to the shore, where the men then load the merchandise onto the little trucks and drive it to its location.
The Dream Beach & The Devils Tear
The Sunset over Jungutbatu Beach
This was probably the most peaceful moment of my life – so beautiful. the perfect and to a perfect day.
Day 2: Nusa Ceningan
The first part of our day was spent looking for the god forsaken suspension bridge to that links the two islands …..
we spent hours zipping up and down the jungle roads
The many Paths and roads between Nusa L & Nusa C
The Suspension bridge.
we fint it, after hours of riding around. at least we can say we have seen every inch of this lush island.
The secret Beach – A beautiful well kept secret.
Hard to find but worth the journey.
