The Three Islands – below is a brief background of the 3 Islands off Bali's East Coast. Cruises depart daily for both Nusa Lembongan & Nusa Penida and private boat charter can be arranged to visit Nusa Ceningan. Diving is extremely popular off the coast of all three islands as the water is crystal clear, the coral vibrantly colorful and there are an abundant amount of tropical fish. Accommodation is available on all 3 Islands and it is highly recommended to spend a day or two soaking up the sun on these breathtaking Islands.

The smallest of the 3 islands located between Nusa Lembongan & Nusa Penida, Nusa Ceningan offers a chance to experience untouched nature. With a population of around 1500 this Island has not yet been built up to accommodate large amounts of tourists. The clear waters offer perfect snorkelling and diving and the quiet beaches offer your own peace of paradise.
The largest of the 3 Islands & the furthest from Bali, Nusa Penida is over 200km2 with a population of around 45 000. Although large in size Nusa Penida has not been built up as a tourist area due to lack of resources. The coast offers many hidden snorkelling and diving areas and a visit to the village gives insight into how the locals live.

An early morning dolphin cruise is sure to delight or watch the sunset and enjoy a buffet dinner on a range if evening cruises. For those who like to do things their own way private boat charter is also available at very reasonable prices.
