Devils Tear & Dream Beach, Nusa Lembongan

Devils Tear & Dream Beach on the island of Nusa Lembongan are quite literally, the dream. We ventured over to the island from mainland Bali, checked into the amazing Pandana Boutique Hotel and quickly head out to explore. There really was not a moment to waste. Just google Devils Tear Nusa Lembongan and you’ll be flooded with some pretty incredible images. Known for being an Instagram favourite, we head out on the bikes to capture the sunset.

// How To Get There \\

As you can see from the map, Devils Tear and Dream Beach are right around the corner from each other. Follow directions to Dream Beach to begin with, it’s the easiest car park to enter and manoeuvre especially if you’re riding scooters.  You’ll see to the right of you, a big open space with some goal posts. Head in the direction of the shacks (and most likely a bunch of scooters) and you’ll be making your way over to Devils Tear. Park up, make your way down onto the cliff edge and trust me, you’ll know you’ve arrived. The sound of the powerful waves hitting against the rocks, throwing up an insane amount of water, that’s when you know you’re well and truely at Devils Tear.

For me, this was one of my favourite areas on the island. So many people from all over the world congregate here. You’ll also find a lot of locals gather down at Devils Tear to play football or chill out. It’s hidden pretty well, so it’s a peaceful place to go and watch the sun go down. If you’re travelling alone (or not) and want to meet some fellow travellers or even some locals, then Devils Tear is the place for you. Offer to take someones photo, just sit on the rocks or give someone a smile… in no time you’ll spark up a conversation and meet some amazing people with some wild stories.

// The Perfect Shot \\

Devils Tear is split into two sections, so double the chances to capture that epic shot. To begin with, you have the rock face that you’ll come across first. A corner where the waves crash and rise above the cliff and if you’re close enough, will completely soak you. However, if you make your way around Devils Tear to the right, you’ll soon see this amazing cliff edge. Rock pools will frame your walk down, the rocks being incredibly sharp so be careful! At this point, you’re at the end of Devils Tear, on the edge of the cliff with the huge waves crashing below you. Heading here for sunset is going to give you that killer shot.

My balance isn’t the best, so walking on the ridge to get the picture, really was the definition of ‘doing if for the gram’. I head over, the waves pretty calm and the edge not to slippery. I made my way to the middle and looked up to pose for the shot. A sea of people looking back at me. It seemed nobody wanted to venture out onto the edge and with good reason. When you’re out there and looking over at the mass of powerful sea below, it can be pretty off putting and very easy to lose your balance. Everyone took their shots and I quickly shimmied my wave over to the other side. It was at this point I realised I should’ve just turned around and gone back. Climbing over the rocks on the other side proved to be waaayyy more difficult and flip flops don’t really make for the best rock climbing shoe. Unfortunately Femmie, another girl on our trip followed me over onto the other side, lost her footing and cut open her foot. 9 stitches later, she returned to our hotel hobbling along and drugged up. So like I said, be carful out there, the rocks are super sharp!

All in all Devils Tear & Dream Beach and places not to missed on the island of Nusa Lembongan. They were definitely two of my favourite spots and somewhere I would highly recommend you go and visit. On your way back, be sure to stop at one of the local restaurants for a spot of Nasi Goreng and a Bintang to really finish up the day nicely. Devils Tear & Dream Beach are both free to visit, so make the most of it whilst you can!
