Just off the coast of Bali there's a tiny island surrounded by crystal clear water, hundreds of species of tropical fish, and the best snorkelling I've ever seen. Nusa Lembongan is a truly amazing little island without any of the hype and rampant development seen in the rest of Bali. It is, by far, my favorite slice of paradise where very few people ever venture. We spent two days lounging next to swimming pools that spilled over into the ocean, swimming through water so transparent that you can see to the ocean floor from a boat, eating delicious seafood and sleeping in open air bungalows with no windows or walls. To escape the chaos of southern Bali was one plus but the island is a paradise no matter what you want from it. I heart Nusa Lembongan.
