Nyale is a kind of sea worm that only appears in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara and it doesn’t appears in other places in this world. According to the Lombok Legend, Nyale is an incarnation of Mandalika Princess. It’s a long story. There was a beautiful princess named Mandalika Princess. Many prince fall in love with her and wanna marry her. The war happened and she was so sad. She didn’t want her people got hurt because of her. She wanted a really nice life for her people and peaceful. Then one day, she decided to jumped to the sea in order to make a peaceful life for her people in Lombok. She wanted all the people tasted her and no war. Then she jumped to the beach. Now the beach is called Kuta Beach Lombok, and the Location is called Seger Beach. Suddenly her body turned became sea worm and everybody could taste it. The worm has many colors and only come annually. Once a year in February. The most interesting part is the worm has many colors but when somebody catch it, take it, the colors just become 2. Green and brown. The brown one live longer than the green one.
