If you want to get away from the trouble and traffic in Bali is Nusa Lembongan and the small, to it connected island Nusa Ceningan the best thing. Those little islands do not only offer a relaxed atmosphere and silence, but also a good surf, diving and cute little hotels. We were 7 girls and it was very funny on Nusa Lembongan (Nusa Ceningan we wasn’t there) you have beautiful white beaches with turquoise water but apart from that you have a lot of real life and you get the feeling of experiencing the “real Bali”. You can rent a scooter and drive through the little villages where you have the chance to get some really different insights like the earning of seaweed, the butchering of chicken and if you are lucky a traditional rooster fight. Compared to the Gilis there is definitely a lot more to do and to adventure on Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. We paid for the ferry 260k (inclusive Transport) for the hotel 350k (double room) and for snorkeling 100k per person. I do not know if I would recommend the Undergroundhouse.
Have a nice day <3 See you next week 🙂
