Located on the southeast of Bali Island in Indonesia, Penida Island (or as locals call it Nusa [i.e. island] Penida) is turning into a major tourist attraction in the Southeast Asian country. Penida is the biggest of a trio island close to each other that each has its own amazing natural beauties.
They are fast boats designated for transferring tourists from mainland Bali to Nusa Penida. This trip takes some 40 minutes before you can catch a view of the greenery of the island.
As soon as arriving at the port, you can hire a driver or a scooter, if the trip is not organized by tour agencies. The point is if you are not accustomed to left-hand traffic, driving in the narrow roads of the island can be a bit dangerous.
Road construction machinery can be found almost everywhere as authorities are ramping up efforts to further develop the island’s infrastructure and prepare it for hosting more tourists in the coming years.
There are a lot of things to do and see on the island and you can find out about them with a quick googling. For a person who has just spent some seven hours on the island, I can assure that this is not enough for truly enjoying and knowing the place. There are plenty of amazing beaches to visit and I suppose a three-day stay could be enough to make unforgettable memories.
