The Ministry of Transportation (Kemenhub) is building golden triangle ports in Bali Province, namely Sanur, Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan. "We are building the golden triangle of Sanur, Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan, whose islands are very beautiful," said the Minister of Transportation (Menhub) Budi Karya Sumadi as quoted from the Ministry of Transportation's website, Monday (10/10/2022).
According to Budi, the three locations do not have docks. However, currently, the Ministry of Transportation is building it with good quality and fulfilling safety aspects. It is hoped that his presence will increase the number of tourists who come to the three locations and be able to encourage the progress of the tourism sector in Bali. "Tourists who like snorkeling can more easily reach interesting spots and can travel longer in Bali," added Budi. One of the three ports built by the Ministry of Transportation is Sanur, which was designed by Architect from Bali, Popo Danes.

The Ministry of Transportation has started the construction of the Sanur Port since December 2020 which includes consulting and construction services. The construction is carried out within the 2020-2022 multi-year fiscal year period which is sourced from the State Revenue and Expenditure Budget (APBN) with a total of IDR 398 billion. On September 22, 2022, a pilot test was carried out for docking a number of ships at the floating dock at Sanur Seaport. This trial brought about 45 tourists to Nusa Penida Island and was considered to have run smoothly and successfully. Apart from tourism, this port can also be used by the Balinese to worship on Nusa Penida Island.
