So you have visited all of the Bali’s main attractions, tried surfing and still feel like something is missing? Are you searching for a hidden paradise in or around Bali where you can escape the hordes of tourists?
All you need to do is to board a ferry from Sanur or Padangbai, and you will be transported to the Nusa islands, off the coast of Bali’s main island. Part of Bali, the cluster of three Nusa islands consists of the larger Nusa Penida, and the smaller Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Lembongan.
You will feel as though time has stopped here – how we imagine Bali to be years ago, before bustling tourism flocked to the island.
Although getting around may not be very easy, as the paths may be rocky and slippery, you will find Nature’s biggest wonders, and very often you may be completely alone. No need to stand in line to take a picture.
It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and explore the real Bali, untouched and unspoilt!
