Villa Seascape occupies a commanding position on a small crescent beach on the south-western shore of Nusa Lembongan overlooking the Devil’s Tear, a local landmark where breakers crash along the limestone headland. The cove is home to a handful of prestigious villas, as well as the Sandy Bay Beach Club, which has a popular beachside restaurant and spa. While kids will enjoy playing on the sand, it’s not advisable to swim in the cove due to strong surf and currents. But Dream Beach, a lovely swimming beach, is just a 10-minute stroll away across the headland, while a 15-minute walk northwards brings you to the gentle waters and noted restaurants and bars of Mushroom Bay.

Things to Do
Villa Seascape’s staff has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will happily share insights on island living. In the meantime, here’s a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the villa.
- Clamber across the rocks to Devil’s Tear, a craggy limestone outcrop on the southern tip of Sandy Bay; on a clear day, you can see Bali’s sacred mountain.
- Head for Dream Beach, a 10-minute walk southwards along the cliff path, for a swim in a cove of shallow sloping sand, followed by lunch at Café Pandan, set on the cliff top above the beach.
- Let our manager book a jukung, a colourfully painted traditional fishing outrigger, so you can cruise the coastline, visit quiet beaches and enjoy a spot of snorkelling.
- Visit the deserted beaches and blue lagoons of Nusa Lembongan’s tiny neighbour, Nusa Ceningan, linked by the Yellow Bridge.
- Adrenaline junkies, visit Mahana Point on the tiny neighbouring island, Nusa Ceningan, and hurl yourself off the cliff top into the sea! Or order a cold Bintang beer from the café and watch the surfers cresting huge rollers below.
- Nusa Lembongan is a wonderful destination for divers! Let our manager book a few dives with Villa Seascape’s recommended dive centre for the chance to spend time up close and personal with magnificent Manta rays at the eponymously named Manta Point on Nusa Penida or, from late July to November, Mola-Mola, huge oceanic sunfish. For the less experienced diver, there are easier flat reef and wall dives in the crystal-clear waters around Nusa Lembongan.
- Take a leisurely tour of the island visiting temples, mangroves, beaches and the villages Lembongan and Jungutbatu. Ask our manager to organise cycles, a motorbike or beach buggie for you.
- Stroll into Mushroom Bay one evening and take a beach-edge table at Café Bali for a romantic dinner. Or stay much closer to home and pop next door to the Beach Club at Sandy Bay for an evening cocktail and barbecue of fresh fish and meats.
- Visit the Underground House in Lembongan Village, a labyrinth of caves excavated from the limestone rock by local farmer and priest Made Biasa using only a hammer, chisel – and 15 years patience and hard work.
- Climb the steps to Pura Puncak Sari, a sacred hilltop temple which commands fabulous views over the neighbouring islands and Bali’s east coast.
