Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan neighboring islands offer some of the best diving Bali. Nusa Penida is a large island in the southeast of Bali, the Strait of Badung located. There are many dive sites to choose from. In season we can try to find famous Mola Mola, but the core area of Nusa Penida diving offers a great view, healthy reefs and pelagic fish.
Nusa Penida is an island southeast of Bali island, Indonesia. Administratively, the island is a subdistrict of Klungkung regency. There are two small islands close by: Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. The Badung Strait separates the island and Bali.
Nusa Penida is a unique island-wide bird sanctuary. It is unique in that Nusa Penida is a populated island where all of the communities have formally committed to protect birds. The idea of converting Nusa Penida (and its sister islands of Lembongan and Ceningan) into a bird sanctuary came from Drh I. Gede Nyoman Bayu Wirayudha (veterinarian) and his Indonesian NGO, Friends of the National Parks Foundation (FNPF), who envisioned the islands to be a natural safe haven where endangered birds could be released and then rebuild their numbers, free from the threat of poachers. FNPF spent 2 years counselling all of the key people of influence on the Penida islands on the benefits of protecting birds and conservation.
