Menjangan Island Paradise Place

July 26, 2013

If you’ve ever dreamed of escaping to a beautiful tropical island paradise, where no one lives and all that surrounds you is the beauty of nature and wildlife, you simply must take a trip to Menjangan Island to experience this beautiful hideaway for yourself.

Menjangan Island is part of the national marine reserve of Bali Barat National Park, and it is home to gorgeous coral reef gardens, shoals of colorful fish, turtles, and even sea birds. Diving and snorkeling is popular there, as the water is nice and clear and there are no currents to contend with.

The Island is also called Deer Island, as it is home to the Barking Deer, and visitors can often spot them taking a bath by the beach. It is always exciting for visitors to be able to watch them in their natural habitat.

Whilst you are there, it is also worth a visit to stop by and have a look at Puri Gili Kencana, a lovely temple on the island. Do remember to take along water and snacks with you as they might not be readily available on the island.

The island is uninhabited, and you can fancy yourself as the lead character of a castaway movie. Whilst getting to the island is not as convenient as getting to other parts of Bali, the romantic seclusion of the island, as well as the rich wildlife is enough to make this a must-do for the visitor with a keen sense of adventure.
