We’ll tell you a secret.
You probably know all about Bali, but do you know there are tiny islands around this little paradise too?
These forgotten isles are often the best places to watch that stunning sunset or snorkel in the crystal clear water.
And what’s best is that hardly anyone knows (or remembers) these little spots of heaven, which are naturally overshadowed by all the hype on the main island itself.
So you want to escape the crowd in Bali? Get on your boat now!
1. Hidden retreat: Nusa Lembongan
Nusa Lembongan has a reputation for being a slower version of Bali.
Here, you get nice accommodation, no hawkers and, amazingly, no traffic. Motorcycles operate sparingly, and four-wheeled vehicles need permission from the village elders (can you imagine that!). So generally, the locals either walk or cycle around.
Now comes the big draw in Nusa Lembongan – postcard beaches you missed in Bali and gorgeous aquamarine water.
If you want a different experience, you can explore the mangrove rainforest on small local boats. And no worries, guides are provided.2. Cross over to a forgotten land: Nusa Ceningan
Easily accessible via a rickety suspension bridge from Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan is almost always forgotten by island-hoppers.
