Photo of the Day: Mangroves

mini-img_5514One attraction tourists to Bali seldom visit is the Mangrove Information Centre in Sanur located on Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai at Suwung Kauh. It’s an amazing place with helpful staff ever-willing to answer all your questions, in fact, the information centre is an education in itself on the ecology and management of Mangroves.

There are two trails to choose from – a short route of about one hour, and the other, a longer route of nearly two hours. If you chose the latter it will give you the opportunity to see as much of the mangrove swamps as possible. The wooden pathway on a connecting bridge system six feet above the ground affords spectacular views of the mangroves and its wildlife as you walk towards the open sea. When you eventually reach the sea, the spectacular view of Benoa Port on one side and Tanjung Benoa on the other is a rewarding sight.
