Serangan Island, a fishing community situated between Tanjung Benoa and Sanur, connecting Bali by the Serangan-Sakenan Bridge, aims to capture the attention of travelers seeking new and authentic experiences in Indonesia. A mere 30-minute drive from Denpasar International Airport, Bali’s main airport, the island is undergoing enhancements. The goal is to adapt to the anticipated growth in tourist activity.

According to Bali Sun, the local Tourism Department is investing in developing 52 kiosks or small beach shops along the waterfront to receive an increasing influx of tourists. These culinary tourism outlets aim to offer a unique experience reminiscent of the renowned seafood destination, Jimbaran, Bali Sun reported.

Bali authorities are also allocating funds to Serangan Village to facilitate the construction of new beach cafes. Luh Putu Riyastiti, Head of the Denpasar Tourism Office, told Bali Sun that funds would also be utilized for community training in HR management, tourism information services, and digital marketing.

Turtle Conservation Center and a Laid-back Experience

Positioned as a budding seafood capital, Serangan Island boasts stunning ocean views. It’s where you’ll find captivating sunsets, with proximity to some of Bali’s prime fishing waters. The island is also home to a turtle conservation center, adding an ecological dimension to its appeal.

The turtle conservation center is a pivotal element in promoting responsible tourism practices. In response, Bali officials have affirmed their commitment to cultivating tourism that is both sustainable and culturally respectful.

Serangan Island offers a laid-back experience with affordable accommodation options, predominantly locally owned and operated. Tourists seeking a tranquil yet affordable retreat will find Serangan Turtle Island Homestay a popular choice. The welcoming homestay-come-hostel not only provides a relaxed atmosphere but also serves some of the finest seafood in the area.

As this paradise destination gains prominence, the expectation is for more accommodation options to emerge, including villas, guesthouses, and hotels. Its strategic location between the adventure hub of Tanjung Benoa and the beaches of Sanur makes Serangan Island an ideal base for day trips to Bali’s cultural heart, Ubud, and emerging destinations like Sideman Village.
