The most popular beaches are Mushroom Beach, Sandy bay or Sunset Beach, Dream Beach and Tamarind Beach, all of which are located on the west side of the island.
Mushroom Beach is is the white sand beach on Nusa Lembongan, where you can have a nice swim in the crystal clear waters without worrying about strong sea surge or waves coming into the bay. The water is nice and refreshing if you want to cool off and we would say Mushroom Beach is the best pick of the island to do so! The white sand beach is mind blowing and the local boats moored in the bay make the most picture perfect image.
Dream Beach is a wonderful secluded 115-metre stretch of white sand on the southwestern coast of Lembongan Island (the most popular holiday destination of Bali’s 3 Nusa Islands). The beach is one among Lembongan’s collection of beautiful and quiet beaches, with a landscape that’s mostly comprised of low-lying limestone cliffs and dramatic rock formations. You can enjoy the breath-taking seascapes with bird’s-eye views from above the nearby cliff edges, or head down to the small cove and dig your feet into the soft sandy coast.
Sandy Bay(also known as Sunset Beach) is adjacent to Devil’s Tear. A small but spectacular beach with white sand and crashing waves, located just to the north of Dream Beach, and easiest reached via the same route. The excellent Beach Club at Sandy Bay is located here and this should encourage visitors to spend the day. At low tide a dramatic cave is exposed in the low limestone cliff at the eastern side of the bay. Approach carefully and make sure you are not cut off from the beach by a rising tide. All-in-all, this is a delightful spot which is as laid back as anywhere in the whole of Bali.
Tamarind Beach is between Playground’s surf break and Mushroom Bay. It is a longish beach that enjoys great views across to Bali and Gunung Agung. At low tide this is not so good for swimming, but as with the other beaches, when the water comes back so does the swimming. Given much of the accommodation here is of the private villa variety, this isn’t nearly as busy as nearby Mushroom Bay. At the western end of the beach a paved road joins the main network of roads linking the villages around the island and some good value accommodation can be found in this area. You can reach Tamarind Beach on foot along the coast from Jungut Batu in 20 to 30 minutes or by road transport in about 15 minutes.
