Our Main Office for Blue Corner Dive & Bar is located on the beach at the north end of Jungutbatu village on Nusa Lembongan. We are away from the busy harbor in a quiet area of the island surrounded by seaweed farmers.It’s a short walk or bike ride from town down the main road towards the mangroves, then follow the signs down our little path for shipwrecks surf break and Blue Corner Dive & Restaurant.
Our second Blue Corner Dive Centre on Lembongan Island is our boutique dive shop in Mushroom Bay at the southern side of Nusa Lembongan. Blue Corner Dive Mushroom Bay is great for certified divers looking for a personal experience in a smaller dive centre.
Menjangan Island in Northern Bali also has some great diving - and Blue Corner Dive has a small shop located in West Bali National Park at the NusaBay Menjangan Resort. Ask us about multi-day dive trips around Bali.

From the GILI ISLANDS & LOMBOK:
A number of options exist for the route between Nusa Lembongan and Gili Trawangan – some easy… and some adventurous! Contact us for more information.
• Scoot Fast Cruise - Operates fast boats from Sanur Beach which take you to Jungut Batu, and onwards to Gili Islands & Lombok. Hotel transfers are included. Crossing takes 25-30 minutes. One way fare US$60 and return US$100, including hotel pick up in southern Bali. They also do Bali – Lembongan – Gili combination tickets.
• Ekajaya Fast Boat - Operates a route from Bali - Cenningan - Padangbai - Gili Trawangan - Lombok in a high speed aluminum boat.
• Perama can arrange not-so-fast boat options between Lembongan and the Gili Islands, Lombok, or destinations beyond.
Then there’s the adventurous backpacker option…
• Take the public boat from the Gilis to Bangsal Harbour on Lombok (cheap!), then catch a bemo/public share taxi to Mataram (Price variable – good luck!), transfer to another bemo heading onward to Lembar Harbour in south Lombok. Then catch the car ferry accross to Padang Bai (also cheap… but crossing time varies depending on how seaworthy the derelict vessel is). From Padang Bai in Bali you can catch a bemo 45 min south to the small village of Kusamba. From there hop on one of the jukung boats to Lembongan (make sure you wrap your backpack in a big waterproof plastic bag and don’t put your backpack on top of a basket of tomatoes!) Crossing time is unknown, total price could be anything from really cheap to more expensive than chartering a float plane – depends on the number of times you hear the line “oh sorry sir, you just missed the last boat/bemo now pay extra”… BUT if you take this route, we promise you a FREE cold Bintang beer just to hear the story!
