§ Day 1 - Nusa Lembongan & Ceningan
To reach Nusa Lembongan we took a fast boat from Sanur port. One way ticket was 200000 IDR (~12 EUR) and the ride was around 30 minutes. The ride was itself an experience.

|With a pool, of course|
From the property we rented a scooter. Thanks to Victor for convincing me to do that! On the islands the only way of transportation is either by walking either by scooters. This way we covered a large area of Nusa Lembongan and the whole Nusa Ceningan. By the way, our accommodation was on Nusa Lembongan.
The two islands are connected through the Yellow bridge.
|The Yellow bridge!|
|It's a thing on these islands to have swings!|
|A no name beach, great for surfing. We stopped for a quick swim|

|The roads were okay with some exceptions.|
|Told ya! You can find at any point a swing. This remembers me of my childhood. Only my brother is missing from the picture|

§ Day 2 - Nusa Penida
From the Yellow bridge we took a fast boat to Nusa Penida. The return trip was 120000 IDR (~7 EUR). Our hosts were very nice and took us by scooter to the Yellow bridge to take the boat. The ride was ~10 minutes. Once arrived there, we rented a scooter and drove to Kelingking beach.
Even if the beach is only at 13km distance from the port it took us about 40-50 minutes to reach the Kelingking view point.

|The view is breathtaking and the beach looks dreamlike|
To get down there some effort is required! Wait to see! Who said it's easy to get in paradise?!
And sometimes the slope was straight.. It was a little bit challenging. All the exercises to strengthen my arms were useful.
|The "stairs" look like this, but this are easy. It's not recommended to wear flippers|
|That moment when you reached your destination!|
|Is this real?! I was surprised to listen on the beach O-Zone "Dragostea din tei"|
