Nusa Islands which are located 20 km away from Bali to the south-east coast consist of three islands named as Nusa Penida Island, Nusa Lembongan Island and Nusa Ceningan Island. Compared to the other two islands, Nusa Ceningan Island is the smallest one. Going to Nusa Ceningan Island can be traveled by using a boat departed from Sanur, or if you are already in Nusa Lembongan Island, you can just use the bridge that is connecting these two islands.
Similar to the other two islands, Nusa Ceningan Island’s climate is also dry and hot. The problem faced by the locals is also the same, which is always about the water supply. However, the nature of Nusa Ceningan Island is a spectacular one. Since the Nusa Ceningan Island is not a big island, you can explore every inch of this spectacular beauty within a short period of time. To heat up your day in Nusa Ceningan Island, you can start your journey from the eastern part of the island where you will find an amazing coral reef. In this location, you can spoil yourself by swimming, surfing and also snorkeling. This is a perfect place to enjoy the clear water and to see a great variety of underworld creatures, such as the corals and fish.
What to do in Nusa Ceningan?
To many of beautiful places to visit in Nusa Ceningan Island, the most unique attraction will be the underworld life. You may not find too many octopi at the underworld of Nusa Ceningan Island’s sea, but you will find lots of seaweed farming all around the island. If you want to have a different adventure, you can rent a small canoe exploring the seaweed plantation in very clear water beneath.
After you have enjoyed your time in the eastern part of Nusa Ceningan Island, you can continue your adventure to the southern part of the island, where you will find the Bakung Temple. In this old temple, you will be able to see the cockfighting which is the trademark of the Bakung Temple. And then, late in the evening, or during the sunset time, you need to go to the western part of Nusa Ceningan Island. In this part of the island, you will see the cave of the nesting swallows. During the sunset is a perfect time to see these swallows darting out and in to the cave. If you love surfing, then you need to head to the southwest coast of Nusa Ceningan Island, where the waves are perfect for surfing.
Going to Ceningan, you should go to Lembongan and then cross the suspension bridge to Ceningan.
