If a destination has the seal of approval from Indonesia’s Tourism Minster, you know you’re in for a treat.

This week Minster Sanidaga Uno visited Serangan Tourism Village in Bali and has been singing the island’s praises.

Serangan Village is also a small island linked by a bridge to mainland Bali. The area is famous for its marine tourism and oceanic conservation efforts. Both of these factors, combined with stunning landscapes and wonderfully welcoming locals, have put Serangan Village on the map

During his official visit, the charismatic Minister Uno said, “The quality of this [destination] is world-class. I have traveled not only in Indonesia but also in other parts of the world.”

“Serangan Tourism Village and generally tourist villages in Bali Province, the management is very advanced and very empowering for the community with a full approach, and they only need to facilitate.”

High praise indeed. Minister Uno added, “What is very, very memorable and Instagramable as well as being fantastic is the procession of releasing the [turtle] hatchlings. And this is a symbol of sustainable development.” 

Just like in Kuta, tourists are invited to take part in some of the exciting turtle conservation activities on Serangan Island.

Just a short 20-minute drive from I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Serangan Island is the perfect vacation destination.

Not only does the island offer affordable guesthouse accommodation and breathtaking coastal views, but it’s just a stone’s throw from some of Bali’s most popular large-scale resorts, including Kuta and Sanur.

For those wanting access to Bali’s biggest resort areas but don’t fancy the hustle and bustle, Serangan Island is the perfect place to stay.

There is a wonderful range of locally run restaurants on Serangan Island, many showcasing some of the best seafood Bali has to offer. Even a cheeky Starbucks for those who need their fix!

Beach lovers and anyone with an interest in nature will feel right at home on Serangan Island. The calm and clear, azure waters of Serangan Beach are just magical, and a visit to the hidden Serangan Blue Lagoon is absolutely not to be missed.

Speaking to the press during Minister Uno’s visit, the Deputy Mayor of Denpasar, Arya Wibawa, also shared his love of this hidden gem.

“With all its beauty and potential, we hope that Serangan Tourism Village can be the best and become Indonesia’s Best Leading Tourism Village in 2023,” he said.

Deputy Mayor Wibawa was also singing the praises of Serangan Island. He highlighted how Serangan Tourism Village offers a great range of tourist attractions, including spiritual and cultural tourism.

There are a number of stunning Hindu temples, such as Sakenan Temple, Arrangement Wadon Temple, and Dalem Cemara Temple, in addition to the Assyuhada Mosque, that tourists can explore. 

He also noted the numerous ways in which tourists can reconnect with nature during their visit. Perfect for marine lovers, tourists can take trips to go fishing, snorkeling, parasailing, and surfing.

Those with a real love of the natural world often share how much value they gained from a guided tour of the Turtle Conservation and Education Centre. 


In fact, tourism in Serangan Island will be receiving a financial boost in the next few years. Leaders want to see the area grow into a destination that will hold its own with neighbors Sanur, Nusa Dua, and Tanjung Benoa.

Two ‘special economic zones’ will be established; the first will be the Bali Turtle Special Economic Zone, which will focus on bringing in tourists to the area who love all things coastal and oceanic (classic beach holiday lovers).

The Kura Kura Special Economic Zone will establish tourism infrastructure for tourists who want to explore the best of Bali culture in the south of the island. 


Serangan Tourism Village, together with Manistutu Tourism Village in Jembrana Regency and Kenderan Tourism Village Gianyar, are the three tourist villages in Bali that have made it into the top 75 of the Indonesian Tourism Village Award for 2023.

In previous years the breathtakingly beautiful Penglipuran Village in Bangli Regency has been short-listed for the Indonesian Tourism Village Awards and remains one of the island’s most popular destinations for Instagram-inspired travelers and content creators

Quote "Serangan Island is the perfect place to stay" Hello?

I can mention some of Serangan Island famous neighbours: 1. Huge and overflowing Suwung landfill. Yuck. 2. Sewage treatement plant. Yuck. 3. Proposed LNG Terminal to feed power station. 4. Denpasar rivers and drain outlets. Yuck.

I just wonder if the fresh water supply and sewage treatment on Serangan is "sustainable"?
