You name Nusa Lembongan and instantly we think 'Manta's and Mola Mola's'. Both Crystal Bay and Manta Point are really becoming famous dive sites. But especially Crystal Bay is reserved to experienced divers as the current can be quite strong and downward. But it is THE place to look for the famous Mola Mola in Nusa Penida (oceanic sunfish) during the season (August to October). But to have a chance to find the mola mola you will have to go down deeper around 30 meters.
So take the ferry from Bali to this island and have the time of your life. But there are no ATMs 'here so bring enough cash along!
