Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida is a little gem of an island southeast of Bail. You can easily get to the island by ferry and it’s only a quick 45 minute ride. I had a fantastic time cruising around the hilly island on my motorbike. The island is mostly covered by lush greenery, local houses, and winding roads so you can really appreciate the natural beauty. There is great diving off of the coast where you can swim with the Manta Rays and even see the elusive Mola Mola (sunfish) if you’re lucky! Unfortunately I haven’t seen one yet but hopefully next time. I did see all kinds of fish, coral, and nudibranchs! A few turtles made an appearance along with a banded sea snake and octopus, too!
