FUN, TOGETHER

If you want to feel the holiday is quite different from the general in Bali, come to Ecotourism Mangrove Wanasari in Tuban district, Kuta. Mangrove trees, beautiful scenery and culinary delights will greet you.

Cool, it's the first word that came out of my mouth upon entering the area Ecotourism Mangrove Wanasari. Though the afternoon, the weather around Kuta, Bali is hot-hot.

Large mangrove trees managed to block the hot sun is not too overpowering. I was excited to walk in between the green trees.

I barely feel like I'm in Bali. Although, this tourist area is near the Ngurah Rai airport, but I did not hear the sound of aircraft engines. The atmosphere is very quiet and Sunni. But somehow, this area looks so desolate, to the point that I feel is in the middle of a jungle in Borneo.

A must visit in this region is the location of crab fishing and restaurants. There is a bridge of bamboo and wood to get there. Ecotourism Mangrove Wanasari was founded in 2009 on an area of 10 acres. This area is owned by 95 people belonging to the group of fishermen fishing Wanasari, Tuban, Bali.

Ecotourism was originally intended as a crab aquaculture environmentally safe and does not damage the environment through the concept kerambah step. With the help of CSR PT Pertamina (2010-2014) managed to export their crab several times abroad.

But since 2011, they decided not to re-export crab. " We were cheated out of the Singapore , " said fisherman Ecotourism Mangrove Wanasari secretary, Diana Agus.

Since then, the concept of ecotourism crab is turned into a culinary concept and education about and conservation of mangrove crabs. Of course, this is so tourist attraction.

" We only sell 25 kg of crabs per day. Want to maintain a balance, where cultivation because we are still small and we do not want to become even shortages, " said Agus.

Looking ahead, Agus want ecotourism can develop so that it can support the fishermen. Agus said, all profits generated are given to fishermen and only 10 percent for the traditional village.

To enter this area, tourist groups ( 1-10 people ) only need to pay Rp 100 thousand. Here, tourists can see how the crabs that are laying cultivated and how the shape of karambah step that will not damage the environment.

In addition to seeing crab fishing, tourists can also enjoy the beauty of the mangrove tour. There are two transportation that can be done to get around the mangrove Area, first with a fishing boat that can carry 10 people or by canoe if visitors want to enjoy the beauty.

Tired of touring? Please stop by the restaurant to a restaurant that has a menu Kampoeng Crab Crab Toll rocked. Complete and delicious! If you feel Bali has been boring, Ecotourism Mangrove Wanasari is a reason to return to the island.
