WHERE IS DREAM BEACH NUSA LEMBONGAN?
Dream Beach Lembongan can be found on the southwest coast of Nusa Lembongan Island.
From the main tourist hub, it is a short 10-minute drive through some small local villages that will bring you directly to Dream Beach.
HOW TO GET HERE
The best and easiest way to get to Dream Beach Lembongan is by scooter.
There are a number of scooter rental shops dotted along the main street in Nusa Lembongan Island that will be able to sort you out with some wheels when you arrive.
Alternatively, you can ask the receptionist at your accommodation to help organize a scooter rental for you.
You can expect to pay around 70,000 IDR per day for a scooter rental with a full tank of gas.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT DREAM BEACH LEMBONGAN
Dream Beach Nusa Lembongan is by far one of my favorite beaches on the island. It’s also the most popular beach with lots of tourists coming and going throughout the day, so the best time to visit is early morning to beat the crowds.
However, don’t be deterred by this as there are some amazing uncrowded spots that you can find in the area.
Dream Beach Lembongan features an epic cave that can be found under the cliffs on the right-hand side of the beach. At low tide, you can walk around the rock and into the deep cave and discover a secluded beach that you will most likely have all to yourself.
If you are on the hunt for more secluded spots without the crowds, the cliffs surrounding the beach can be explored and you will find some awesome cliff jumping spots.
There is no official designated spots to jump from, but there are areas where the water is deep enough and you will either have to climb out up the rocky cliffs or swim back to the shores of Dream Beach Lembongan to get back onto dry land.

SPEND THE NIGHT AT DREAM BEACH LEMBONGAN
There is a number of accommodation options available right on the sand at Nusa Lembongan Dream Beach if you wish to spend the night here.
One awesome location is the Dream Beach Huts Lembongan which features an epic infinity pool set on the cliff edge overlooking Dream Beach Lembongan.
There are a dozen straw hut bungalows dotted around the gardens and just a stone’s throw to the beach. Cafe Pandan is attached to the Dream Beach Huts Lembongan accommodation and it’s open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

OTHER POINTS OF INTEREST
Further along the cliffs from Dream Beach Nusa Lembongan you can find another popular tourist spot known as Devil’s Tear.
Devil’s Tear Nusa Lembongan features a rocky outcrop that sucks the water in and spits it back out again through a blowhole.
It’s also one of the best spots on the island to watch the sunset. There are a number of reflection pools along the cliffs where you can get creative and potentially capture some amazing shots.
