Nusa Lembongan Villas
Location Tips
Indonesian law requires that your passport has a minimum of six month's validity in order to visit the country.
Upon arriving in Denpasar airport you will be required to pay for a visa-on-arrival which will cost you US$25. Upon departure you will be required to pay departure tax of Rp 200,000 cash per person.
Nusa Lembongan is part of Bali, so no passport is needed to visit except as identification required to check into a hotel or villa.
Fast boats from Sanur leave for Nusa Lembongan regularly throughout the day and the crossing takes about 30 minutes. Our recommended fast boat operator is Rocky Fast Cruise ( and we can book this on your behalf at a reduced rate. Please note that the last boat service that we would recommend departs from Sanur in Bali at 4.30pm. Other scheduled services are available at 5pm but after that time there are no more boat transfers to the island. If you are arriving too late to make a connection, we recommend that you overnight in Sanur and take the first recommended boat transfer departing Sanur the next morning at 10am.
For boat crossings, you will need to wade in the water both to get onto the boat and then back off the boat so we recommend that you wear shorts / short skirts and water friendly footwear. Remember to empty your pockets as well - on occasion the water can be a little deep or a small wave can take you by surprise!
You and your guests will be able to hire scooters or golf buggies to zip around Nusa Lembongan. Some restaurants also offer a complimentary pick up and drop off service.
There is only one ATM on Nusa Lembongan in Jungutbatu Village, and a temperamental one at that. We recommend withdrawing sufficient cash before visiting the island. Some restaurants, like The Beach Club Restaurant at Sandy Bay, are foreign currency-friendly, and also accept credit cards. Accepted cards are Visa and Mastercard and there is a 3% bank charge added to all credit card payments. Many places on the island though only accept Rupiah cash.
There are limited medical facilities on Nusa Lembongan – a hospital and a medical centre which are both very basic, so if you do require any specific medication we recommend bringing it with you.
