Sanur Beach Harbour

Denpasar City, Sanur Beach Harbour

Content: Arrive at Sanur Harbor at 8am for your Fast Boat to Lembongan which will leave at 0915am. There are a lot of Fast Boat options, but I went with Arthamas Express because they are both reliable and also go to Mushroom Bay on Nusa Lembongan, which is where my accommodation was, which makes it easier. Board the boat and settle in for the half hour trip. Tip: If you can, try to get a seat in the open air. Sometimes the boats may have an upstairs area which is fantastic!

Hai Tide Beach Resort

Content: Hai Tide Beach Resort. The Huts here are great, and I have stayed a couple of times. Staying here also gives you the option of several restaurants along the beach, and warungs on the street out front of the resort.

Devil's Tears

Kabupatén Klungkung, Devil's Tears

Content: Hire a scooter from the street out front or have the resort arrange one for you, which is what I did. The ride to Devil's Tears is only about 10 minutes. Park out near the warungs and take your time enjoying the blow hole. Tip: Take a wander past the blowhole and follow the fence around the water's edge until you find some beautiful tidal pools. Get some great photos here, but don't spend too long, we will be back later! Tip2: At the blowhole, take notice of the deep blue water in front of it. Several large Sea Turtles make it their home and can be regularly seen coming to the surface for air.

Dream Beach

Klungkung Regency, Dream Beach

Content: Dream Beach which can be found very close to Devil's Tears. The sand here is beautiful and white with turquoise water perfect for swimming. There are a couple of nice restaurants here if you want to eat, but I suggest doing what I did and find a cheaper warung around on the inlet near your next stop.
