Bali’s pristine southeastern baby sib, Nusa Lembongan is a blissful bogan-free zone still undiscovered by the Bintang-tee hordes. Hop aboard a speedy ferry from Sanur or charter your own with Pulau Group Trip (see V. Useful), and within one hour you’ll be quaffing sundowners and swimming with manta and dolphins.
This is a villa-only kind of isle, where rustic-chic, roomy pads with private staff are the order of the day or week, natch. Villa Voyage is perfectly situ’d for sand-tosurf antics with its own boat; if you’ve got tots in tow Island Home is super for the whole clan / nusalembongan villas.com. Laidback Sandy Bay Beach Club is the spot for a star-lit BBQ dinner / 08 199 957 553 / sandybaybeachclub.com.
