A Day in Jungut Batu

On Monday, June 25th 2012 I went to Jungut Batu with my father to visit my uncle, Jungut Batu located on Nusa Lembongan Island it’s near from Nusa Penida and still part of Bali Island. Nusa Lembongan and Penida are well known as great place for dive, beside Tulamben and Amed. Many tourist that love diving come to this place. My uncle is a Dive Master he has been dive for many many times. He said in Lembongan and Penida you can see beautiful Mola-Mola Fish, Manta Ray and sometimes Sharks. Well, this is my first time to Lembongan and i can’t dive also. So I search another interest activity in here, and then I see The Seaweed Farmers. In Jungut Batu many people work as seaweed farmers maybe because that was the easiest way to earn money for them who can’t work in hotels,bungalow,dive company or restaurant. They plant seaweed every morning and evening depend on when the water receded and it takes about 35 days for harvest time. But, I’m worried about their condition in the next few years, do they still plant seaweed or displaced by other tourism businesses. Will see, someday i’ll come again to take more pictures.
