A small island paradise filled with bird sanctuaries and rocky hills just begging to be climbed. Discover amazing views, villages, and incredible nature on a day trip to Nusa Penida with a local host.
Popular locations like Kelingking Beach & the Tembeling Natural Pool require a steep hike down and back up, so be prepared for a workout!
Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach
Discover the west side of Nusa Penida on this day trip that includes a stop at Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach. The tour will also take you to the soaring cliffs of Kelingking Beach, and Crystal Bay. This is a great way to get a taste of everything the island has to offer in one day.
The emerald water of Angel’s Billabong is framed by rock cliffs and an arch. During low tide, the ocean flows into this natural pool and is a great place to swim or relax. It is best to visit this spot during the early morning as it will be more deserted. However, be careful as the rocks are slippery and there is a steep drop to the beach below.
After exploring this stunning vista, the tour will move on to Broken Beach or Pasih Uug. This unique location is a must-see for photography enthusiasts. Here you can explore a natural infinity pool that is carved out of the cliffs. During low tide, you can walk around the entire circumference of the beach.
This is a great opportunity to see some of the less-crowded beaches on the island. You will also have the chance to snorkel with manta rays, which is always a highlight of any trip to Nusa Penida. The tour will also stop at three breathtaking snorkeling spots to get a close-up view of these majestic sea creatures.
The most famous attraction on Nusa Penida is Kelingking Beach, an incredible cliff point that looks like a T-Rex’s head and has perfect turquoise water below. The hike down is a major workout and a little scary, but it’s well worth it for the stunning views.
Most people only visit the main lookout point and admire the views, but if you want to actually swim in the cliff pool and see the full beauty of this place, then you should head down the path. There are warungs along the way that serve mie goreng and nasi goreng, and you can enjoy a delicious meal while you’re enjoying this amazing view.
It’s a good idea to get there early in the morning or late afternoon to avoid crowds and the heat. It can also be quite windy on the cliffs, so you should bring a jacket and make sure that you have suncream with you.
Getting to Kelingking Beach can be done on your own by renting a scooter or by booking a day tour from your hotel. A day tour is often cheaper and includes transportation, lunch, and a guide. You can book one online or in person at the port of Toya Pakeh on Nusa Penida. There are also a few companies that offer fast boats to Kelingking from Bali that you can book online or in-person at the harbor.
Goa Giri Putri
A lot of people forget that Nusa Penida has a lot more than just beaches. It also has lots of cool cliff-top temples and other hidden spots. One of these is Goa Giri Putri, which is a cave temple that is actually quite a sight. It is the largest cave temple in the whole island and is still used for ceremonies, so be sure to respect it as you walk around.
You have to maneuver your way through a hole in the mountainside, but once you do, you’ll be greeted with a massive natural cave that is home to a temple. It’s a really neat experience, and if you’re lucky enough to be there during a ceremony, it can even be pretty exciting.
Besides being a great place to explore, the views from the cliff-top temple are simply incredible. It’s a perfect spot to sit down and enjoy the sunset and the crystal-clear waters below, where you might be able to see manta rays and other exotic marine life.
If you’re planning on visiting this spot, make sure to bring your snorkeling gear as well as a jacket for the wind. It can get cold quite quickly at the top of the temple. You should also bring a packed lunch, water, and sunscreen if you’re planning on spending more than just a few hours here.
If you’ve seen photos of the curved cliffs on Atuh Beach, you’ll know why it has become one of Nusa Penida’s most popular attractions. The view is spectacular, and it’s a great spot to relax and watch the surfers ride the waves. Locals have recently constructed a concrete staircase that goes all the way down to the beach, making it easier to enjoy this unique spot.
While the beach is amazing, you can also head to the adjacent secluded Tembeling Beach and Forest, which has a cool sea cave, natural pool, and views of the cliffs. Another hike worth checking out is Batu Siha, which has a mix of jungle and beach scenery, including a pretty white sand beach at the end.
On the east side of the island, you can visit Diamond Beach or Atuh Beach for more stunning cliffs and gorgeous water. These beaches are both a highlight of any nusa penida tour
Nusa Penida is an incredible place to see some of Bali’s most beautiful landscapes. The cliffs are spectacular and the water is crystal clear. There is also a lot of wildlife to enjoy, so bring your camera and make sure you’re wearing comfortable shoes. You can rent snorkel gear at most of the beach spots, but if you’re planning on doing multiple tours, it might be cheaper to buy your own snorkel and mask in Bali.
