Snorkeling trip at the south coast of Bali lies the beautiful, untouched and rugged Nusa Penida Islands where we will go for sightseeing along limestone dirt-paths, through forest suburbs to find secluded white beaches, hidden mangrove lined streams and seaweed farms, we to explore both islands and rode from the north of Lembongan Island where there is a dense mangrove forest, all the way to the south of the island to see the incredible natural infinity pools at Devils Tear. We will be snorkeling around Nusa Penida and Ceninga Islands.
THE UNDERWATER BUDDHA TEMPLE
The underwater Buddha, stupas, as well as smaller statues of Ceningan, are a sight to behold. Now, before a second internet rumor begins, this is basically a submerged art exhibit and maybe a conservation project. I’ll get to the background of this location and the potential inspiration for it in Pemuteran a little later. But, first I think I have to explain how invigorating it was to skin-dive next to these beautiful statues.
A few weeks ago, I saw an image of some divers and snorkellers in front of an underwater Buddha. It was so intriguing and unique, I just knew I had to go there. Underwater ruins aren’t terribly common and when I discovered how close it was to the next island I planned to visit, it seemed like a given that I’d go for a dive there.
Many internet commentators said the Buddha was near Bali, then a few others claimed it could be seen on a drift dive of the Ceningan Wall. Turns out it’s in the much shallower and more accessible Ceningan Channel. I have to admit, getting here wasn’t the easiest task from the island of Nusa Penida (30-40 minute speedboat ride from Sanur in Bali).
Many of the locals were confused when I asked to go see the underwater Buddha in Ceningan. Most tourists come to Nusa Penida to swim, dive or snorkel with the manta rays.
