The Yellow Bridge as a Connecting Icon of Nusa Lembongan and Ceningan

Nusa Penida Travel Tips

In addition to Nusa Penida destinations that offer different attractions than usual, you can also visit Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. If the attractions offered in Nusa Penida are more adrenaline-challenging, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan offer more relaxing tourist attractions. You can enjoy the beach with clear water, dive, surf, and even relax at the beach club without struggling to get through the challenging access.

Even though Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan are two separate islands, you can cross these two islands in just a matter of minutes. This is because the two islands are connected by a yellow bridge which is often referred to as the Yellow Bridge. Even though it is only seen as an ordinary bridge, the Yellow Bridge is touted as an icon connecting Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan.

Known as a Bridge of Love

The striking yellow color of the Yellow Bridge is a perfect match against the blue sky and sea. Sometimes the Yellow Bridge is used as a pre-wedding spot so people call it the "bridge of love". From the bridge, you can immediately see the clear blue sea view with small ships sailing. In the afternoon, you can see the view of the sunset with the ship docked.

Even though it is not a tourist destination, many tourists take photos at the Yellow Bridge. Because this bridge is a road that is used for the public, you have to be careful. There will be many motorbikes and pedestrians passing by. Therefore, to get good photos, you have to be patient enough to adjust the position and depend on the busy and quiet conditions of this bridge. The entrance fee to the Yellow Bridge is of course free.

How to Get Yellow Bridge

Easy to access Yellow Bridge from google maps. I departed from Sanur Harbor to Mushroom Bay Harbor by fast boat. For simplifying your trip, you can book a fast boat ticket at penidago.com. The estimation by riding a scooter from the Mushroom Bay Harbor to Yellow Bridge is about 17minutes.

The time needed to cross to Nusa Ceningan is only about 5 minutes if using a motorbike. No need to worry about the condition of the bridge, because the handle and frame of the bridge are made of iron and the bottom is made of wood. After crossing the bridge, you only need to turn right to reach tourist destinations in Nusa Ceningan.

So, that’s all about Yellow Bridge. I hope you’ll enjoy your trip!
