Padang Bai: Snorkeling at White Sand Beach and Blue Lagoon
Here are some (overdue*) photos from the next (two-day) leg of our trip, to the little seaside, snorkeling-friendly town of Padang Bai. You can check out Offerings and Outriggers for a more detailed description of our impressions of Padang Bai and Sanur, the first two towns we have visited on our month-long trip to Indonesia.
A video of the natural blowhole in the black volcanic rocks – there are small caves under where we were standing, and the water flowing in and out with the waves would create air pressure in there that aggressively forced the water back out again in great spurts. There were a few small tunnel holes connecting it to the surface behind us, too, so there were surprisingly loud blowing noises surrounding us just before each of the big sprays.
*We haven’t had very strong internet for a while, so after a few failed attempts at posting these shortly after they happened, we put off posting them until now. But we’ve been continuing to have fascinating experiences in our various destinations, as we came here to do, and will post more about them eventually!
