WHERE IS BLUE LAGOON?
If you are staying on Nusa Lembongan Island, you can access Ceningan Island via the yellow bridge that connects the two islands.
It’s no more than a 15-minute drive from the main tourist hub on Nusa Lembongan to reach Blue Lagoon.
HOW TO GET TO BLUE LAGOON CENINGAN
The best and easiest way to reach Blue Lagoon is by scooter.
You can rent a scooter for 50,000 IDR per day which will give you the freedom to explore all of the awesome locations on Ceningan Island at your own pace.
It’s very easy to find a rental scooter for the time you plan to spend on Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. Quite commonly when you arrive by boat to the island you will be approached by the locals asking if you need to rent one.
Otherwise, most accommodations on Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan offer scooter rentals for guests.
The famous Blue Lagoon
WHAT TO EXPECT AT BLUE LAGOON NUSA CENINGAN
The jump-off point is easy to find as you can see from the roadside as soon as you arrive at the pin location on google maps.
You are free to roam around the outside edges of the cliffs which is the perfect opportunity to get some photos of Nusa Ceningan Blue Lagoon. The water inside of the lagoon is a milky blue color that looks good enough to drink and will make your photos pop without even having to edit them.
If you’re facing towards the ocean, there is a dirt track to the right-hand side which leads through some bushes and down onto a viewpoint on the lower section of the cliffs. From here you can grab another awesome perspective of the lagoon.

CLIFF JUMPING AT BLUE LAGOON CENINGAN
Blue Lagoon Nusa Ceningan is a cliff jumping haven for those adventurous, thrill-seekers out there. Follow the cliff edge around to the rocky point on the eastern side.
There are remains of what used to be a bar from where people would hang out for the day in between swimming and cliff jumping.
There is a range of cliff jumping heights starting at 4 meters and reaching heights of up to 13 meters. We had all intentions of jumping from the cliffs this day although the waves were too big and there was a lot of water moving around.
Make sure to assess the conditions before jumping because the only way out of the lagoon is to climb up a small cliff face and back to dry land.
It’s possible to jump on either low tide and high tide as the water is deep enough for a smooth landing. I would advise making sure you have a buddy with you in case things get hairy. Know your own limits and take care.
