There are three neighbouring islands: Nusa Lembongan, the nearest of the three from Bali and has become tourist destination, Nusa Penida as the largest but less developed among the three islands, and the tiny Nusa Ceningan, positioned between Lembongan and Penida. There is a bridge connecting Lembongan and Ceningan. This three islands are separated from Bali by the Badung Strait. All of these islands are part of Klungkung Regency.
Many areas around the island are good for diving and snorkeling, with abundant marine life and healthly coral. This beautiful marine life is the main tourist attraction and becomes one of major economy in these islands, especially Lembongan. This island is a world away from the hassle and hectic pace of South Bali.
There are also well established seaweed farmings in the area. Two types of seaweed are cultured: cottoni and spinosum. Nusa Penida currently produces most of Bali’s seaweed.
