Madura is an island in Indonesia located off Java's northeastern coast. The island covers a total area of approx 5,168 km2 (1,995 ml2) and has a population of around 3,630,000 people (2012 census).
- The island area comprises various smaller islands situated to the east and north. Pulau Madura Island is administered as part of East Java province. It's separated from Java via the narrow Strait of Madura.
- Pulau Madura Island is among the poorest regions of East Java province. The soil is not fertile enough to make it an important agricultural producer. The limited economic opportunities led to poverty and chronic unemployment, along with long-term emigration, such that most Madurese people do not currently live on Madura. Local people were among the most numerous participants in Indonesian government transmigration programs, emigrating to other parts of the country.
- Bangkalan, situated on the western end of Pulau Madura Island, has substantially industrialized since the 1980s. The region is within a brief ferry ride of Indonesia's 2nd-largest city, Surabaya, and has gained a role as suburb for commuters to Surabaya, as well as a location for services that need to be close to the city.
- Surabaya-Madura Bridge, which opened 2009, helped to increase Bangkalan area's interaction with regional economy.
- Pulau Madura Island is famous for the bull-racing competition ("karapan sapi") where a jockey rides a wooden sled pulled by a couple of bulls over a course of about 100 m (328 ft) in 10 to 15 seconds.
- The Madurese people are considered to be great sailors. Madurese ships loaded with cargoes of wood out of other islands, such as Borneo, plied their trade between Singapore and Indonesia. Traditional ships of Madura, include golekan and leti-leti (leteh-leteh).
