NUSA LEMBONGAN

LEMBONGAN

Nusa Lembongan is a beautiful small (8 square km) island located off the south-east coast of Bali, close to neighbouring islands of Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan, just a 25 minute journey by speedboat. If you are after a quiet, laid back island vibes with stunning crystal clear turquoise waters and white sand beaches, away from the hustle of mainland Bali, then look no further!

Until recently, Nusa Lembongan was famous for the seaweed farming trade, however with the steady rise of tourism, the island is becoming more upmarket with boutiques, spas, beach front restaurant and hotels, with still a friendly local village atmosphere.

Whilst the island is a perfect place to relax; it is full of adventure with world famous surf breaks, incredible diving, snorkelling, paddle boarding and cliff jumping – you name it, there is something for everyone!

Conservation

Nusa Lembongan is paradise, but we need to work hard to keep it this way. With an increased amount of visitors coming to the island each year, we are finding that rubbish is increasing.

At Roctopus Dive, we try to avoid single use plastics as much as possible; providing reusable plastic lunch boxes and drinking cups to our guests.

We also have eco bags and reusable water bottles for sale, providing FREE drinking water at our refill station, to those who hold these.

We have committed to joining local dive centres together for road and beach clean ups.

Ways you can help..

– Do not throw any litter into the ocean

– Say NO to plastic straws

– there are many other options such as bamboo, metal or paper straw options

– Use reusable shopping bags

– Decline single use plastic coffee lids and stirrers

– Stop chewing gum (it contains plastic)

 

Join us for beach clean ups!
