Kusamba Beach is one of Bali’s favorite sights, famous for its beautiful beach. The boat line belongs to the rural fisherman decorating the black sand that unfolds along the coast.
Kusamba has a beautiful view from the ocean with a splashing wave and a tropical atmosphere surrounded by soft sea breeze. We can see that the fishermen look after the crevasses, send rice, legume, fruit and other materials twice a day to Nusa Penida.
The Kusamba fisherman with the big boat and five crews can squire the heavy material to Nusa Penida at 1.5 ton cargo. They can travel across the sea from Banjar Tri Buana, Banjar Bias Coastal and Kampung Coastal Island for 30-2 hours, depending on the type and the medium-speed transport used.
This boat may also squire passengers who want to enjoy the beautiful coral and white sand on the Bali island cross.
Segara Beach in Kusamba is especially dedicated to the Hindu rituals that often carry out Nganyut’s activity in accordance with the Ngaben ceremony. In this place we can also meet a fish market that usually takes place between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
A lot of fish dwells in the strait between Bali and Nusa Penida Island, so it is crowded by the fishing boat’s white sail decorating the sea around Kusamba beach. There are 40 fishermen’s families as the traditional salt maker on the west side of this coast, especially in Banjar Batur.
In fact, Kusamba’s name is not far from Balinese’s fighting history against the Dutch colonist. The Balinese hero succeeded in frightening the Dutch soldier during the war against the Dutch in Kusamba on 23-24 May 1849 and killed the Dutch key man-Letnan General Michiel.
