Legend of the black magic island
Once upon a time, there was a prince of Nusa Penida named I Renggan who owned a ship capable of turning any piece of land it sailed on to sea.
By using his power, I Renggan planned to conquer Bali by turning the whole island to waters.
I Renggan attempted to attack twice.
Both misson failed because Bhatara Hyang Tolangkir/ Bhatara Mahadeva found out about this and cast a spell to make I Renggan feeling drowsy thus unable to control his ship causing his ship to drown.
He survived the first shipwreck. But not the second one. The second shipwreck that took his life is believed to take place on the west side of Penida. The wreckage of the hull turned to the island of Ceningan, while the sail was torn in two forming the island Lembongan & Jungut Batu.🏝
Blinded by grief, Dalem Sawang -the King of Nusa Penida, I Renggan's father- turned his deceased son and the whole troops to evil "Wong Samar"-mystical invisible creature, to devour the people of Bali Island...💀
PS: that's just me doing a bridge pose, not the sighting of a Wong Samar 👻

They're not kidding when they named this place BLUE lagoon. I mean how can that not be blue?
