Nusa Penida Island 38

Nusa Penida is part of Klungkung regency in Bali – Indonesia. There are two small islands nearby: Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan which are also part of the district of Nusa Penida. The islands separated by the strait of Badung and located on the southeast of Bali island.

Diving sites
Nusa Penida covers a wide area of diving locations. They are Penida Bay, Manta Point, Batu Meling, Batu Lumbung, Batu Abah, Toyapakeh and Malibu Point. The flow through the Lombok Strait is, overall, south-tending, although the strength and direction of the tidal streams are influenced by the monsoon seasons.

During the southeast monsoons, the tidal flow tends south; during the northeast monsoons, the tidal flow tends north. In the area of the strait north of Nusa Penida, the pattern is relatively simple, with a flow, at peaktide, of about three-and-one-half knots. Tidal streams in Badung Strait are semi-diurnal, but the character of the stream is very complicated because its direction runs obliquely to the general south to north direction of Lombok Strait, and the channel has a curved shape.

Toyapakeh
Toyapakeh has a stretch of reefs, and in the southern part of the bay there is a similar area of rugged bommies, rich with color and fish. Big schools of fish, sea turtles, and occasionally molas are highlight of Toyapakeh diving. Toyapakeh is special for its pillars of coral.

Malibu Point
Malibu Point is a diving site with gray reefs, reef white tips, silver-tips and numerous sharks. While Penida Bay is another anchorage, and the rocky islands have an interesting forms; something like an old resting elephant. The bay is vulnerable to swell, creating-up-and-down-currents. Then, Manta Point is a limestone rock off Pandan cafe. The swell is relatively strong.

Nusa Penida/Lembongan
Nusa Penida/Lembongan is a diving site with vast spread of coral reefs and good visibility. Big fishes are frequently observed at the area. Manta rays or sunfishes appear in the certain season.
The site is also known of the very strong currents requiring divers some skills.

Crystal Bay
Crystal Bay is calmer than outer shore. There are many Antheases. A school of batfish comes around periodically. A bat cave is located nearby.

  4. Kalimantan/sumatera/sulawesi telah menggugah orang Nusa. Ada sebagian rekan Nusa kita jual tanah untuk beli tanah di Kalimantan/Sumatera/Sulawesi. Tidak cukup banyak yg telah dilakukan oleh Perantau untuk Nusa Penida. Nusa Penida praktis hanya dibangun oleh bbrp orang spt Pak Nurada/Pak Mergig/Pak Kariasa dan yg lainnya banyak berusaha keras dirantau hanya untuk memenuhi perut mereka dan sekolah anak-anak mereka maklum sebagian besar dr mereka adalah orang gajian. malah sebagian dr mereka jual tanah warisan Nusa Penida untuk bangun rumah di Denpasar. tidak ada yg perlu menanggung salah kecuali orang tua mereka yg salah mendidik anak-anak mereka sehingga menjadi anak yg manja. Salam Dektra/Jakarta

  5. Saya nak Sompang Nusa Penida, sudah 30 Tahun di Kalimantan Tengah (Palangka Raya), Setiap saya pulang Saya prihatin sama nyame nusa kok tanah nusa banyak di jual, sayang anak cucu di rantai nanti tinggal cerita saja tanahnya nanti milik orang luar bali. Kalau mau maju coba meranatu kalau berhasil bisa untuk ke Nusa lagi. suksma

  6. I love Nusa Penida and the people that live there. I am considering buying some coastal land there and opeining a eco resort. The location is very secluded with no surrounding neighbours, so I would also like to make this eco resort and nudist resort. Would this be allowed by the locals or be seen as offensive.

  7. PED is great coral garden, but there is many beautiful divespots. Manta 66, Blue corner, MMPoint, Bad Cave, Ceningan Wall nad many more. Nusa Penida is great for motorbike trips, relaxing without comercional tourism and you can see there real traditional villages and hindu culture. Nusa Penida is good for minimum 3 days and if somebody would like diving can stay more. Can be one week nad every day is open new places and experience! Realy beautiful island!

  8. In Toyapakeh on Nusa Penida you can find goiod accommodation and dive centre. Nusa Penida is beautiful island. Great for diving and motorbikes trip. Much more better like Lembongan. Nusa Penida has 16 divesites, Nusa Lembingan 3 and Ceningan 1 divesite. Next year will be open there rescue turtle station for sea turtles from Bali black market.

  10. sebenarnya nusa bs maju pesat pariwisatanya dengan catatan masyarakat hrs peduli kebersihan. coba tengok pesisir utara nusa penida sgt sembrawut dan kesannya kumuh dan masyarakat terbiasa buang sampah sembarangan ..shg pantainya jorok. berbanding terbalik dg daerah bagian selatan sy acungi jempol kebersihannya 1000% top banget…mungkin kebersihan hrs dimulai dr kampanye di sekolahan…tx

  11. Orang tua ku lahir di Nusa Penida, tepatnya dimana aku kurang tau..sekarang menetap di sumatra selatan..hingga saat ini aku pengen berkunjung ke nusa penida..selama ini cuma denger crita dari ortu..hmm….kalo memang bener Nusa Penida sekarang seperti yang dideskripsikan di website ini, aku bangga banget….berarti Nusa Penida sudah mengalami kemajuan pesat ..(sambil membayangkan cerita ortu ttg kondisi Nusa Penida sebelum kakek nenek transmigrasi ke sum-sel)…miss u Nusa Penida…some day i’ll come home to ‘you’

  12. knapa yaw nusa penida tow musti lewat jalur laut padahal masuk bali juga kan nusa kan………..masih klungkung???????pasti ada kisahnya nusa penida to ampe misah dari pulau bali???????????cerita dikit dong yang tw…..thanks

  13. Untuk mengembangkan Nusa Penida agar lebih maju, hal pertama yang perlu di tingkatkan adalah infrastruktur (Jalan,Listrik, dan Air) dan tentunya didukung oleh SDM yang bener2 ingin memajukkan Pulau yang tercinta itu.

  14. menurut saya nusa penida adalah sorga!y mungkin karena saya lahir dsna,,!cuma yang jdi pertanyaan saya,kenapa sorga yg indah ini tidak d kembangkan?dan sya punya kesimpulan,,!pulau Bali sprt ayam, yg sedang mengerami 3butir telor,(nusa penida,lembonganan,cening)sedangkan,2butir telornya sudah menetas(lembongan dan ceningan)kenapa 1telor ini sampai skarang blm menetas ,,,,,?
