Lembongan, Ceningan & Cliff Diving


Just off the west coast of Bali lies the beautiful, untouched and rugged Nusa islands where one can go for a bike ride along limestone dirt-paths, through foresty suburbs to find secluded white beaches, hidden mangrove lined streams and seaweed farms.

A potential spotting of manta rays was actually why we ended up on Lembongan and Ceningan, there’s a number of bays situated on both islands that are ideal feeding spots for these huge mystical creatures of the sea. Sadly on our 6am boating trip we failed to bump into any and returned to land hugely disappointed so we figured we would go cliff jumping to get our thrills instead.
Yes you read it right, cliff jumping – both Lembongan and Ceningan have an incredible rocky coastline which means several bays on the islands were ideal for nutters crazy enough to jump. We crossed over to Ceningan via the beautiful old suspension bridge and found a cliff jumping set up at blue lagoon bay where we plunged ourselves into the sea from 12m high.
It was heart pumpingly thrilling and I almost chickened out…but sometimes you just have to think fuck it, and jump.

We rented bikes to explore both islands and rode from the North of Lembongan island where there is a dense mangrove forest, all the way to the south of the island to see the incredible natural infinity pools at Devils Tear.

  1. Hey Fashion Ferno! I’ll be travelling with my friends to Bali this year end and would like to ask a few questions regarding about Nusa Lembongan and Ceningan.

    1. May i know which boat service you took to go Lembongan?
    2. Was it easy to travel in Lembongan and Ceningan on your own?
    3. How much was the cliff jump?

    Hope you can help me with these questions!
    Thank you and hope to hear from you soon :)


    1. Hi Renee,

      You can get a local boat to lembongan from Sanur, it costs about 150k rp. Takes about 40 minutes and boats leave from around 9am-12pm.

      The cliff jumping is at a jump point called blue lagoon, it costs 50k for 2 jumps and you get and option of 2/3 different heights. Though oct-feb it’s monsoon season and so the waves are quite aggressive. They might be closed during this period so just bear that in mind.

      Hope you have a great time! (:

  2. Hello there,

    It will be my first time going to bali trip in a week time and I will be staying at kuta, I really would love to visit the blue lagoon cliff. And I wanna ask you a few questions.

    Did you stay over at Lembongan island itself? If yes, which hotel?

    Understand that ferry at Sanur to lembongan island is from 9am-12pm, how about the return ferry to Sanur? If there’s no return ferry in the evening I supposed I have to stay over for a night at lembongan island?

    Hope to hear from you soon. Would really appreciate your help. :) thank you!

    1. Hi Brina,

      Lembonghan is worth an over night stay for sure as there are load of stuff to do as there are loads of things to do plus Ceningan island right by it to explore. I stayed in mushroom bay at the bungalows right at the end of the beach (they also have a dive centre) but I forget the name.
      If you’d like to go back on the same day this is also possible as they have return boats in the evening around 4-5pm.
