How many days out of 12.5 should we use in Lembong?

Husband and I age 60, plus 3 sons ages 27, 25 and 23, plus 2 girlfriends are going to Bali from Jan 5 to Jan 18. We are an active family and love adventure. Some TA experts mentioned they don’t like long questions so I will be breaking them down into multiple questions over time and then maybe a itinerary review when I am done planning. I read everyday about Bali and what to do there. Overwhelming. I have decided that we will go to Nusa Lembongan to bike ride, snorkel, surf (my children surf at home) and rent scooters to see the island. I have booked Tarci"s bungalows for 4 nights. I am concerned that with everything else we want to do that I am spending too much time here. If we arrive early in the day will 3 days and 3 nights be enough time to hit everything on our list? Thanks for your advise.

It is a small island and I would say 3 nights will give you plenty of time to do what's on your list in Nusa Lembongan.

It depends what you want to do with the rest of your time. Three nights is a good taster but you may regret not staying four... or find 3 is ample? I would stay 12.

The weather would decide if you want to stay longer, if the conditions (surf) are good would say 4 nights ideal.We stay between 15 to 30 nights betwen Lembongan & Nusa Penida. Even this is not long enough for us. Tarci Bungalows is a good pick,good food,live music some nights and well positioned and short paddle to surf spots or use the aqua taxi.

We split our time in Sanur 4 nights, Ubud 4 nights, Lembongan 3 nights. If Lembongan is last on your list you need an extra night Bali before returning to the airport. We don't surf however. Spent 1 day snorkeling (Manta's!), one day scootering and 1 day beach. Enough for us, though we could have easily spent another day to go to the Mangrove forest. Lembongan is more laid back and as I hear form several locals, great for surfing. We stayed next to Tarci's and had dinner there twice, great place.

Thank you everyone for your advise. I hope the weather cooperates and there is some surf. It will be fun whatever weather comes our way. I'll try to lay out the rest of the trip to see what works. Glad to hear Tarci's is a good choice.
