The Coral Triangle is an area of the western Pacific Ocean that boasts the most diverse collection of marine life on the planet. Stretching across Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, the Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste, this region is home to an extensive array of corals, fish, and other aquatic creatures. Its ecological significance is unparalleled, and it is a popular destination for divers and snorkelers worldwide who seek to explore the wonders of the deep blue sea.

As part of the Coral Triangle the waters around Nusa Penida are very rich in marine life. Almost 300 species of coral and over 550 species of reef fish have been recognized here. This includes 5 species that were previously unknown anywhere in the world. In addition to this 13 mangrove species and 8 seagrass species are also found here.

The Nusa Penida area is traversed by the Indonesian Throughflow Current. This current is responsible for transferring warm and fresh water from the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean, allowing for the exchange of vital nutrients, heat, and salt that are absolutely essential to maintaining marine ecosystems, causing an impact on the climate and marine biodiversity of the region. Due to the influence of this current, the Nusa Penida area is home to a wide variety of marine species and is a crucial ecosystem to maintain.
