The Best Day Trips from Tashkent

Bali, the exotic Asian holiday destination, is one of the best places to crash for couples as well as nomadic travellers. This lanky strip of an island is world famous for presenting beautiful sceneries and pleasant waters stationed alongside volcanic mountains. One of the most preferred places to travel in Indonesia, Bali is a land filled with resorts and houses.

However, for travellers who’ve had enough of Bali and have at least another day in their banks, can invest their time visiting the small and majestic islands surrounding the island. These places are relatively untouched so they provide a getaway from the crowds and heavenly places to hang out:

1. Nusa Lembongan

Rightfully claimed, Bali is one of the busiest of the Indonesian island. However, if you wish to encounter a little slower version of Bali, then hit Nusa Lembongan! The best thing about it is minimal traffic and honking, with people preferring to commute the healthier way (cycle or foot). This is on the account of a peculiar tradition of taking permission from the village elders before pulling the reigns of a four wheeled vehicle. Nusa Lembongan pays homage to such beautiful oceanic waters and beaches that they have been printed on many holiday postcards that one ought to receive from relatives on special occasions. The mangrove rain forests are photogenic and noteworthy experience. And if you wish to take a deep dive into the mighty ocean, The Crystal Bay offers a once in a lifetime worthy experience of snorkeling, which is deep sea diving using oxygen masks. This place is easily accessible via the water route from Sanur Beach in Bali. One has the option of fast tourist boats, which take around 30 minutes while local boats can take up an hour and a half for the same distance.

2. Nusa Ceningan

Nusa Ceningan is widely known as the “Forgotten Island”, because it is merely a walk by the suspension bridge from Nusa Lembongan; but still some tourists forget to visit this spectacle of a place. It is mainly famous for the luscious turquoise waters of the Blue Lagoon. For thrill seekers, cliff jumping has been set up at Mahana point from a whopping height of 12 metres. But be careful as regular up tides hit the cliff and is known to wash away tourists. One of the best places to have your photograph clicked, this place is so gorgeous that you might actually forget taking a selfie while clicking the impeccable surroundings. Skilled surfers can be seen playing with the tides and chilling out later at beachside. If in Nusa Lembongan, you can get to Ceningan easily via a walk over yellow bridge, however ferries and boats from Kuta region of Bali will also get you here.

3. Nusa Penida

Penida is the third among the marvellous Nusa islands, unarguably famous for its natural and untouched beauty. Far away from the commercialised beaches, this island serves as a bird sanctuary and the best place for bird watching. Guarding the endangered Bali Starling, Nusa Penida is a known haven for birdlife. The Giri Putri Caves have a spiritual vibe to them, paying tribute to the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva. If you are a lover of natural architecture, your heart will definitely skip a beat looking at the majestic limestone and stalactites! Speedboats from various hubs in Bali such as Sanur, Padang Bai and Benoa Harbour will take you to your destination within minutes. Local boats might take around 90 minutes for the same journey.

4. Menjangan Islands

Fashioning the most beautiful underwater ecosystem of Bali are the Menjangan islands. This place has a daunting collection of coral reefs which supports countless species of fish. Like many of the islandic wonders, it also has many weird ship sinking tales linked to it, thereby catching the attention of the tourists. In order to get here, you can take a boat off the Labuhan Lalang port.

The outskirts, or rather the out-waters of Bali, are as interesting as the island itself. So while in the neighbourhood, make it a point to explore the unexplored and simply fall in love with nature!
