Jungutbatu Beach

Nusa Lembongan, Bali

Unspoiled white sand beaches, centuries-old banyan trees and surf breaks that go by names like "Shipwreck" and "Lacerations" --island. Where the blue sky meets the turquoise water, you'll find a place where time has slowed down, life is lived simply and the acronym “ASAP” doesn't exist -- unless you're talking about how soon you can make it to the beach.
