Nusa Lembongan is 20km off Bali’s East Coast and just an hours cruise across the Badung Strait. It’s a small island with a population of less than 4,000 friendly locals - the water is crystal clear which makes for excellent diving and snorkelling, and with fewer visitors than the main areas of Bali, surfers can enjoy a less crowded surf at the breaks on Lembongan.
The wet season occurs October to March, and as with all tropical climates the humidity at this time can be oppresive. The dry season occurs from April to September, with less humid conditions and sunnier weather. This is usually the most popular time to travel to Bali.
Most rainfall in Nusa Lembongan will occur during the wet season, but downpours are typical and can occur at anytime, usually not lasting too long.
