When selecting accommodations in Nusa Lembongan, consider location, price, and atmosphere. The most popular areas are Jungut Batu and Mushroom Bay, which offer easy access to beaches, restaurants, and activities. Prices range from budget-friendly homestays to luxurious villas. The island’s laid-back vibe makes it ideal for solo travellers seeking a peaceful escape and meeting other travellers (scroll down to find out how 😉).

I stayed in Jungut Batu because that didn’t require me to get a scooter or taxi, everything was within walking distance. In the evening you can even find lots of restaurants offering live music which is truly magical in Bali (especially by the sea!)
