Flag of Indonesia  , Bali,
Saturday, September 14, 2013

Early start this morning and a very quick banana pancake brekkie at Savira Bungalows before getting a really good deal on a taxi to Sanur Beach.

Sanur Beach was our exit point from Bali to Nusa Lembongan and like our previous journey's to and from Ubud the route was pretty seamless between Ubud and Sanur Beach - everything has become joined-up here in Bali.

Before finding a boat to Lembongan we all couldn't resist the allure of Dunkin Doughnuts and disappeared for a short while into 2 boxes of donuts.  Sugar fest!

After the usual 'high stakes brinkmanship' involved in negotiating any form of transport in Indonesia we were on a boat bumping over waves at high speed towards Lembongan.  The water was choppy at the best of times and reinforced the Islands reputation as a place for surfing.   

Lenbongan is popular with hoards of tourists but strangely manages to soak them up and maintain the air of a place that remains untouched.  The narrow roads are dusty and low level walled Hindu Temple complexes gave the place a relaxed feel.  We eventually found a fantastic beach hut with an amazing view which was right next to the dive place for us to go and see Manta's and Mola Mola's.

We ended-up with some beers on the beach presiding over an awe inspiring sunset - what more could you ask?! 

Manta's and Mola Mola's tomorrow woohooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
