Between the Sheltered
lagoon of Sanur and the tiny port of Benoa is a small island where turtles
are "Farmed" in under water corrals. Local outrigger sailing
canoes can be hired from Sanur for an hour's scenic sailing down the coast,
or motorized canoes provide a shuttle service at high tide from a small
salt-making village just off the by-pass before Benoa.
Once years, at "Manis Kuningan" (is festivity that happens 10
days after "Galungan" the most important festivityof the Balinese
Religion) during the temple festivity at Pura sakenan, the island comes
alive, as people from all over Bali flock to make their devotion. An entire
food market sets up outside the temple to cater for the crowd, and boatloads
of people in brocades and lace bearing baskets of offering flood into
The Barong Landung giant puppets generally perform in the evening, as
the crowds return to the mainland in haste to beat the receding tide.
The southern ti of serangan if favored spot skin and scuba diving. At
the village a small craft industry has developed using turtle shell product,
shell, and primitive carving.
