Jembatan Kuning – The Yellow Bridge of Love

One of the loveliest things I noticed on my way back from Nusa Lembongan to Bali was Jembatan Kuning, the Bridge of LOVE. A bridge that will instantly remind you of the San Fransico’s Golden Gate Bridge, except that one is red and this one pretty much golden. This remarkable bridge, not only, connects Nusa Lembongan with Cenengan, but also, attracts thousands of tourists each year given its admirable, name and design. Although, its name was inspired, by its downcast history. For those who may not know, this yellow bridge had collapsed in 2017. Thereafter, it was reconstructed and named the bridge of love. Much like the kindled emotion itself! When visiting Lembongan’s Mushroom Beach Ferry Port, you literally can’t miss this gigantic marvel.

Bridge of Love

I happened to arrive here while travelling from Nusa Penida to Nusa Lembongan. Needless to say, the surrounding crystal clear waters dominate the scene. However, it’s hard to miss the easily distinguishable, yellow bridge when you pull into the ferry port. The coastline, on the other hand, is outspread with smooth white sand bung up with unique seashells and corals. If Sally sold seashells, on the seashore, then it must be this land between high and low-water marks. Reciting my favourite tongue twister, I bend over, to pick whatever seashells I could get my hands on. Even though seashell hunting was my favourite activity here, the magnanimous golden bridge, in the backdrop had all my attention.

Bridge of Nusa Islands

Suspending casually between the two stunning Nusa islands, this single-lane crossing radiates a special kind of charm. Although at the time I visited this area, only a handful of pedestrians were either walking through or clicking pictures on it. On and off, a few motorbikes were seen crossing over. Most tourists get down at this beach and hire scooters to get to the heart of Nusa Lembongan. Distances are bones in this lovely Klungkung Regency and renting a scooter here will only cost $5 for a day. Alternatively, you can also rent a car, as I did. That way, you can focus on the prolonging landscapes, when you crossover the incredible natural beauty of this region.

Jembatan Cinta

Another amazing fact, about this improved Jembatan Cinta Bridge, is that it was resurrected, at a cost, of 3.4 billion Indonesian Rupiah. In the present day, this yellow bridge of love can support 30 tons of weight. The traffic, however, is contained to motorbikes, bicycles and pedestrians. Alternatively, multiple luxury cruise vessels operate between the Ports of Nusa Penida, Ceningan and Lembongan.

P.S. I visited Jembatan Kuning as a guest of Indonesia Tourism Board, however, the views are my own.
