Bali and Its Three Hidden Islands: A Travel Guide to Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan

Bali often called as the “Island of Gods”, stands as one of Indonesia’s most renowned travel destinations. With its white sandy beaches, majestic volcanoes, and rich culture, Bali offers an ideal experience for anyone wishing to immerse themselves in Indonesia’s beauty and hospitality. While Bali is remarkable on its own, it’s also surrounded by smaller, equally captivating islands, including Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan.

Nusa Penida: A Natural Wonder

Nusa Penida is the largest of the three and boasts a plethora of stunning natural landscapes. From its towering coral cliffs to exotic white sandy beaches like Kelingking Beach, this island is a haven for nature enthusiasts. Additionally, the island serves as a sanctuary for Bali’s endangered bird species, the Bali Starling.

For fans of underwater activities, Nusa Lembongan is your go-to destination. Renowned for its vibrant coral reefs, the island ranks among Indonesia’s top spots for diving and snorkeling. Besides that, you can also engage in other aquatic adventures like paddleboarding and surfing.

Nusa Ceningan may be the smallest of the three, but its size is deceiving. The island offers breathtaking beauty, from the mesmerizing Blue Lagoon to the iconic yellow bridge connecting it to Nusa Lembongan.
