Leaving from Desa Pramana Swan, A spectacular Villas close to the Keramas beach where we stayed 4 Nights there, We were picked up by the boat agency at 7.30 am, we were directly heading to Sanur Harbor. After arriving, we did a registration then Waited for the boat heading. All big stuffs left in Desa Pramana Swan and only an important adventure stuffs to be brought to Lembongan Island, If you have a cam action, please fully charge to capture your best moments in Lembongan.
It's time cruising to Lembongan Island, A bit shakes on the boat, but that's okay for an adventure which might never be repeated. An half hour trip which makes us arrive on this tiny island. Not long since we arrived then some guys approach us to offer some bike rentals and the tour island program. Mostly travelers take bike to ride on the island. Then the story begins….
We opened the googlemap to search the resort where we’d stay. Sari Nusa Inn, Yes that's where we stayed for 2 Nights. I walked for 5 minutes to get it and finally we arrived. The lady was ready with the welcome drinks on the tray. That made us so chilled out and refreshing.
We're not much spending time, and then we're all packed up with our stuffs, ready to go. Novi, the woman one who welcomed us, she has prepared thing what we wanted, yes. It was an automatic bike!
Before heading this island, we already pinned some locations to visit, here we go… I rode the bike to visit the first spot “Dream Beach", the beach we actually never dreamt about. We just could say WOW!. The beach was awesome with the white sands and the blue water calling us to swim immediately. We swam a bit; my partner bought me a beer to complete the happiness.
Finished swimming on this awesome beach, we dried ourselves then moved again to next spot which was so close one another. We arrived on the sea cliff and the name was weird "Devil's Tear". Absolutely no tear drops when you visit this amazing place. Tears asserted that the sea water pushed strongly by the wave, hits the rocks and when it’s blown up then it drops to become a rains then it starts to be called a Devil's Tears. But, please keep your distance from the cliff, some said, some accidents happened here. Don’t forget, nature which amazed you, could also endanger you!
We moved to the famous bridge called “Yellow Bridge”, yes, it is because the bridge painted yellow. But before being at the place we already wished to stand at. I read about sad news when in October 2016, The Bridge was collapsed and causing less than 10 people killed and more than 30 in serious injured. Now this bridge has been a witness what tourism could affect two sides. The bridge was in previous dominantly built in wooden, but now has been well reconstructed with the heavy metals and steels; hoping could save everyone's lives. Leaving from the sad news, now the Yellow Bridge has been the most visited and most remembered bridge when visitin Lembongan Island. Yes we might never forget this bridge in whole life, what a fantastic view from this bridge when we could see two islands were just separated.
After having lunch at a local cafe, we came back to resort, it might we need some rest. We entered the nice cool air conditioned room at Sari Nusa Inn after fully heated by the sunlight. After some hours rest and nice conversation with some staffs at Sari Nusa Inn, we decided to go to Mahagiri Beach. This beach is wonderful when we visited some people did some activities like; relaxation on the long chairs, Jogging with puppy, playing ball and just sightseeing. Yes we could see Bali and Mount Agung clearly and made us missing Bali for awhile.
The sun started to set down, and then we decided to find a local warung for a seafood dinner close by. You won't be so hard to find a nice food such as; seafood, vegetarian and fresh food cause Lembongan has all you need. We came back to the resort and told about what we did to a friendly staffs that were like our family.
On the next day, we had our breakfast served as we ordered the day before. The breakfast was so good. Finished our meals then we got ready to explore a "Mangrove Point”. Starting up our bike and tried to find where to purchase the gasoline. We rode for only 10 minutes to “Mangrove Point". Arriving at the spot, we were sooner offered an activity to explore mangrove with traditional boat pedaled by a local who almost works for more than 5 years pedaling the boat to fulfill the tourists' desire of Mangrove Exploration. It took us to look deep into the most seeable underwater view. It also carried us to the silent world when we passed the mangrove trees.
We continued our activity to try a snorkeling. The underwater of Lembongan Sea was spectacular. Some sea creatures and corals live under a good conservation. This is the reason that the tourists still go to Lembongan. Even this island could be finished in one day for an adventure, but the repeater guests kept coming like us. We are Igor & Laura from Russia, thanks for being with us in flashback story.
