Blue Lagoon Beach
Blue Lagoon Beach – Another hidden beach in Padang Bai is Blue Lagoon Beach. This hidden paradise is located on the other side of Padang Bai harbor and offers the beauty of hidden paradise for those who are looking for a hidden beach with blue water and white sand. Because the water at Blue Lagoon Beach is so clear that it’s easy to see what’s underneath. Another good thing, this beach is still quiet, not much visited by tourists.
Blue Lagoon is close to Padangbai harbour. Known as an underwater paradise, the water is warm and marine life is abundant. You might see an ultraviolet fish with a glowing spark, followed by schools of black fish with tails shaped like the heads of wrenches, you might even see a fish that looks like a leopard skin, and if you look closely, you’ll see a creature cleverly disguised and hiding in the crevices of the coral reefs. The shoreline is bordered by coral gardens where you can snorkel among psychedelic fish. Padangbai is the main port for ferries to Lombok and also for smaller boats to Nusa Penida. It is a very beautiful village, with rolling hills around a glistening blue bay. It is also home to a famous temple, Pura Silayukti, where the Buddhist sage Mpu Kuturan is said to have lived in the 11th century.
This is a great beach for snorkeling. The coral reef is right above the beach and is very pretty. The best way is to go to the far left side, where there is a coral canal that leads to the snorkeling point. There are good snorkelling spots in the bay, although the snorkeling at the Blue Lagoon or White Sand Beach is much better.
