Nusa Island, Bali

Nusa Island, Bali
Nusa Penida Island is the largest island of the Nusa Lembongan-Nusa Ceningan-Nusa Penida archipelago. Compared to Lembongan Island surrounded by steep cliffs and natural caves, Nusa Penida has a relatively sloping and sandy beach. Some of the beaches look very exotic because they are surrounded by hills and untouched dense forests. These hidden beaches can only be reached by sea using jukung boats that are rented by local fishermen.

In terms of tourism infrastructure, Nusa Penida may not be as advanced as its neighbor, Nusa Lembongan. However, the island, which is several times wider than Nusa Lembongan, holds an underwater natural charm that is no less impressive than its neighbor. In fact, one might say, the coral reefs in the waters around Nusa Penida are far superior in terms of biodiversity. No fewer than 200 species of coral reefs and 500 species of fish live in shallow waters around this 200 square kilometer island.
