Within the past few years, the government of Klungkung has promoted Nusa Penida massively. Every year it organizes festival to introduce all the potentials owned by the region of bijou island cluster. Several new tourist attractions begin to emerge as alternative destinations other than Lembongan and Ceningan having been well known. Two of them are the Saren Cliff Point and Bulian Beach.
A tour guide of Nusa Penida, I Gede Sukara, not long ago said that both destinations give impression of different nature from the objects having been already known, such as the Atuh Beach, Crystal Bay and Uug Beach.
Sukara said that the Saren Cliff Point, for instance, offers contortion of cliff that cannot be found elsewhere. This object has not been touched by arrangement, but has become a byword among the communities of Nusa Penida and travelers to Nusa Penida.
To get to Saren hamlet, Batumadeg, is not too hard. From the highway leading to this location has been equipped with signposts. A swing under a tree becomes one of the icons of this place. As planned, Sukara said that local governments will arrange this object with the addition of a number of public facilities, including road access as remaining badly damaged.
Similar conditions also happen to other alternative attractions, such as the Bulian Beach at Penangkidan hamlet, Bunga Mekar. It is adjacent to Kelingking Beach. After the implementation of the Nusa Penida Festival, it also becomes a byword. However, it has a problem of road access to this location staying severely damaged.
Nevertheless, there are still visitors coming to this object. Sukara affirmed that when arriving at location, the journey will pass through damaged road yet will be paid by the pristine beauty of Bulian beach. “Hopefully, the road access could be immediately repaired at both locations,” said Sukara.
He admitted that in the islands of Nusa Penida there are quite a lot of choices to make a visit. Aside from Ceningan and Lembongan, Nusa Gede Island is no less good. However, the road access is still a problem since the first.
According to him, it must be considered comprehensively so that the development of Nusa Penida will not run half-heartedly. He hoped the infrastructure improvement could get a priority to support the development of Nusa Penida in many aspects. One of which is that tourism should have a high selling value.
