The other day someone asked me what my favourite place in Indonesia had been and I said ‘Nusa Penida!’ without thinking twice. I can’t wait to share my Nusa Penida itinerary with you because I know you’ll love it as much! Yes, Nusa Penida has its touristy highlights but if you stay overnight (rather than taking a day trip by speedboat from Bali), you’ll see so much more. Follow this 3 day Nusa Penida itinerary and you won’t miss a thing! The middle of Nusa Penida is one giant mountain peppered with local villages. Driving is a bumpy nightmare with many of the sights very far from one another. It all added to the adventure as we explored the island by bike.

A local recently told me that tourists have only been coming to Nusa Penida for 2-3 years, compared to neighbour Nusa Lembongan ‘s 10 years of tourism. I wonder if in a few years Nusa Penida will be tarmacked and built up with resorts. I hope not. Now’s definitely the time to see it and enjoy its local charm!

How long to spend on Nusa Penida

I’d recommend at least three days on Nusa Penida. If you truly only have one day to spare, I’d suggest doing a Bali boat trip because it’s quicker and easier to reach the main attractions via the coast than it is the inland roads. Broken Beach and Crystal Bay might look moments from each other on a map, but the drive totalling 1-hour meant we split them between separate days. In this guide, I’ll share the best things to do on Nusa Penida so you can get a feel for what you want to see. Then I’ll suggest an itinerary with an add-on if you have an extra day to spare. I’ll finish with places to sleep and eat (my favourite topic).

The best things to do in Nusa Penida

First up, activities. If you’re following my Nusa Penida itinerary rather than taking a Bali speedboat trip, there are plenty of wonderful places to visit on Nusa Penida. Some of the spots below get visited during Bali boat trips but many of them don’t, meaning they’ll be way more secluded for you.

tips trip ke nusa penida

I’m definitely not saving the best for last here.  Atuh Beach is undoubtedly one of the most stunning beaches in Nusa Penida . It’s a long, bumpy drive from anywhere else on Nusa Penida which means many people miss it, and those who do make the pilgrimage find it a little more secluded. Of course you’ll see other Western tourists there but it’s a bit of a hidden gem. For lunch you should tuck into the fresh fish and nasi goreng being served at the beachfront warungs  – they’re tasty and cheap.

Simply sitting on Atuh Beach and watching the waves batter the cliffs is an experience. The tide is still strong as it hits the sand so I chilled on the beach rather than braving the water. Apparently Atuh Beach is a stunning spot for sunrise, although I’m not sure I’d want to drive there in the dark. Take a whole day to visit Atuh Beach and visit Goa Giri Putri Cave on the way there or back.

Angel’s Billabong

Angel's Billabong Nusa Penida

Check the stunning blue and green colours in this water! Angel’s Billabong is an enormous natural rock pool that fills up with crystal clear seaspray every time the waves come in, sometimes with an enormous salty splash. I’ve seen countless photos of people swimming in the water but when we visited (September 2018), it was a viewpoint only. Apparently, people have died being swept out by the waves so I think (and hope) it’s closed off for swimming now.

Broken Beach

Broken Beach

One of the most popular things to do on Nusa Penida is watch the waves swirl inside the cliff bowl that is Broken Beach . It’s right beside Angel’s Billabong so you can easily combine the two. Broken Beach was once a cave but after the roof fell in, it became a unique natural feature with an arched entrance. No boats or people go inside – the powerful waves are something you wouldn’t want to reckon with! Park your scooter up for 11,000 IDR and see Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach at once.

Note – the road to and from Broken Beach and Angel’s Billabong is treacherous to the max. ‘Road’ is a compliment – it’s more a stony dirt track on a vertical incline. Honestly, all I could think about (well, almost) while at these amazing natural attractions was how we’d ever make it back without coming off the bike. Go slow. Beginners don’t try!

Kelingking Beach

Cliff viewpoint Kelingking Beach

This is an essential! Can you see the T-Rex yet? Apparently I’m the only one who can’t. Kelingking is one of the best things to do on Nusa Penida and although you’ll be surrounded by crowds, it’s no less impressive. From the parking lot it’s a long climb down to this point pictured. I’d say it took around 15 minutes, clutching at roots and branches the whole way. I bottom-shuffled down and clung to things on the way up. I joked after that other people were looking cute ‘n’ beachy while I looked like I was returning from war!

Kelingking beach cliffs

Right at the very bottom is Kelingking Beach, an absolutely stunning white expanse of sand. It required an even longer climb than the one we’d already done and I dread to think about the way up. We didn’t make it all the way but some braver folk did. The views from the halfway point do not underwhelm if you can only be bothered with half the climb.

Snorkel or dive with manta rays

manta ray

There are thought to be around 700 manta rays in the Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan region. Each one is estimated to be worth US$15 million dollars due to the amount of tourist expenditure involved in coming to see them. Of course, seeing wild animals is never guaranteed but there’s a very high chance of it. Book on any snorkel or diving trip from the agencies dotted around Nusa Penida. For snorkelling, you can expect to pay around 150,000 IDR for a morning trip including equipment hire. It’s worth it; snorkelling with mantas is one of the very best things to do in Southeast Asia .

Peguyangen Waterfall

Blue staircase at Peguyangen Waterfall

The golden rule of Nusa Penida is that if it’s not exhausting/treacherous, it’s not worth doing 😉 Getting up and down  Peguyangen Waterfall required some stamina and a definite ‘legs day’. You also might want to avert your eyes from the sheer drop below the rickety wooden stairs holding your weight. All this said, the views at Peguyangen Waterfall are stunning and we watched turtles riding the waves below us. It’s a holy spot for locals and many a procession passed us, clad in white and carrying offerings to the gods. The views probably outshone the waterfall itself which was a small one at the very bottom. It trickles from the rocks out to the ocean. Factor 20 minutes for getting down, a little longer to get up, and a further 10 or so minutes at the bottom.

Manta Point

Manta Point

Whether you do it from water or land, Manta Point is an excellent addition your Nusa Penida itinerary. If you don’t fancy or have time for a boat trip, take one more hazardous drive to Manta Point . We ended up having this beautiful spot overlooking the ocean all to ourselves. At first, we noted that while the scenery was stunning, there didn’t seem to be any mantas. Luckily, this changed and we watched not one but two swim for a good 20 minutes. It was amazing. Honestly, I’m not sure which exact area of the cliff head is Manta Point but we just followed Google Maps and it went pretty well. You’ll see a few speedboats circling the harbour as they search for rays but I think it was actually easier to spot them with our aerial advantage. Manta Point is pretty far from everything on Nusa Penida apart from Peguyangan Waterfall so it’s worth combining the two.

Crystal Bay

Crystal Bay itinerary Nusa Penida

Crystal Bay is described by every travel blogger and his aunt one of the best things to do in Nusa Penida. Honestly? I wasn’t blown away. After Atuh Beach, it felt kind of boring. It’s more touristy, less dramatic… meh. But for a chill session, you might enjoy it. I didn’t snorkel at Crystal Bay during my stay on Nusa Penida but I’ve since visited again as a boat trip from Nusa Lembongan. The gorgeous coral and wide variety of marine life can be seen by swimming in from the shore – they stole the show for me.

Goa Giri Putri Cave

Prayer session at Goa Girl Putri Cave itinerary Nusa Penida

One thing I did on Nusa Penida that was totally different was visit  Goa Giri Putri Cave . We did this en route to Atuh Beach which only required a 20-minute stop off. I didn’t have huge expectations but was truly amazed by what we found. We climbed a flight of stairs to a small shrine which seemed like all there was. After a 20,000 IDR entrance fee, I thought it was a bit of a rip-off especially as there didn’t even seem to be a cave. Then, someone directed us to a small hole in the ground which we were instructed to climb through. Not knowing what to expect, we obeyed. On the other side was a cave the size of a football stadium filled with locals at worship. The low chanting in the semi-lit cave felt eerie yet intriguing. Quite different to the beaches and waterfalls on the island but just as interesting!

3 days in Nusa Penida itinerary

So, how best to fit these attractions into a short trip? Don’t underestimate the driving distances and try to squeeze too much in. Next, I’ll share our tried-and-tested 3 day Nusa Penida itinerary…

Day 1 – the big names: Angel’s Billabong, Broken Beach and Kelingking

Avoid peak times for these attractions if you can. I hear the speedboat tours from Bali visit Broken Beach and Angel’s Billabong in the morning so it’s best if you visit later in the day. If you have 3 days on Nusa Penida, you can afford to be more leisurely. After a relaxed breakfast and slow, bumpy ride on the terrible road, we arrived at 12pm then visited Kelingking Beach between 2 and 3pm . For two people and one scooter, we paid just 11,000 IDR at both Broken Beach and Kelingking Beach for the ticket and parking, so it’s a cheap day out. After the bumpy roads and strenuous climb at Kelingking Beach, I was exhausted by the end of it.

Day 2 – Atuh Beach and Goa Giri Putri Cave

Reward yourself for your busy adventures on day two of this Nusa Penida itinerary. Spend a day at beautiful Atuh Beach, relaxing on the fine sand or drinking from a coconut. Drive along the north of the island, heading east, and you’ll pass Goa Giri Putri cave en route.

Goa Giri Putri Cave

Tips for visiting Goa Giri Putri  – Entrance is 20,000 IDR and you’ll need to be wearing a sarong to cover your legs as it’s a place of worship. If you don’t have one with you, borrow one at the entrance for 10,000. Out of respect, don’t use a camera flash when ceremonies are going on. After your culture dose, drive for 30 minutes over the hills of the island until you reach Atuh Beach .

Steps down to Atuh Beach Nusa Penida 3 days

If you’ve survived the drive to Broken Beach, this ride will be a breeze! It’s still a trek on foot from the parking spot down to the sand but at least major chills are awaiting you. There’s no entry fee for parking at Atuh Beach so all you’ll buy is food and drinks (if you want them) which are very reasonably priced.

Day 3 – Manta Point, Peguyangan Waterfall and Crystal Bay

Manta point 3 days in nusa penida

Start your day early when there’s the highest chance of seeing manta rays from the clifftop. This day will begin in the south of the island where you’ll find Manta Point and Peguyangan Waterfall just a seven-minute drive from each other. The road to Manta Point is particularly rocky and awful so go slow. Don’t miss the gorgeous white Hindu temple at the top.

Hindu temple at Manta Point

Then, prepare for the climb of your life at Peguyangan Waterfall! The blue wooden staircase curves down the cliff face to bring you to the waterfall at the bottom.

Locals walking down steps to Peguyangan Waterfall

Once you’ve seen these attractions, drive back over the hump of the island and spend the afternoon relaxing at Crystal Bay .

Boat in the water at Crystal Bay Nusa Penida

Got an extra day? S wim with manta rays!

If you can add to your 3 day Nusa Penida itinerary, explore the craggy coastline by boat during your fourth day on the island. I actually did this at a later date from neighbouring island, Nusa Lembongan, but it’s easy to do from Nusa Penida too. In fact, it’s easier here because they’re most commonly found around Manta Point. Snorkelling trips are very affordable, starting at 150,000 IDR for a half-day . If you have time, do it!

Where to stay on Nusa Penida

During 3 days in Nusa Penida, we stayed in a cosy cabin at You & We Bungalows. We paid $20 a night including breakfast and coffee served on our balcony. While you can’t rent a scooter there, the friendly staff will direct you up the road where you can. Book You & Me here .

Where to eat on Nusa Penida

During 3 days on Nusa Penida, we made it around plenty of restaurants. There’s a mix of Western and Indonesian options and the prices are reasonable compared with Bali and Nusa Lembongan. Here, in my opinion, are some of the best restaurants on Nusa Penida…

Penida Espresso

This bright yellow open-fronted cafe, Penida Espresso , serves Western-style coffees and smoothie bowls in a local setting. There’s no use for aircon when there’s only two walls, so sit back and look out over palm trees as you sip your flat white.

Smoothie bowl at Penida Espresso

Kekinian Cafe on the main road serves something for everyone. I had a local Indonesian dish (tuna curry and rice) and there were also lots of veggie options including a tempeh/tofu/aubergine platter that looked divine. They serve everyone’s favourite Bali breakfast of smoothie bowls, plus there’s a happy hour from 5- 8pm .

Penida Colada

My favourite dinner on Nusa Penida was at Penida Colada restaurant. I’d recommend booking a table as we arrived at 7pm and the only one available was reserved from 8pm. I had some of the freshest calamari of my life which was soft and freshly battered. The bill came to 180,000 IDR ($10) for two seafood mains and two amazing smoothies which is pretty decent.

Papila’s Coffee House

The only airconned cafe on Nusa Penida (that I know of anyway) is Papila’s Coffee House . I believe they also serve Western and Indonesian food, and I know for sure they serve doughnuts because we accidentally ate 10. Long story with a miscommunication and a subsequent sugar coma!

Warung Batan Sabo

This is one of the best restaurants on Nusa Penida for tasty local fare. The mains start at 20,000 IDR ($1.50) and on Sunday nights they have live music and an open mic night.

Nusa Penida Night Market

We never ate a full meal at Nusa Penida Night Market but you totally could. We headed there after dinner to pick up dessert but on both occasions, I ended up snacking on a second chicken satay dinner. Everything was so affordable so there’s no reason not to squeeze it in your 3 day Nusa Penida itinerary.

Chicken satay night market

The fried loaf stand  at Nusa Penida Night Market is not to be missed! An absolute genius of a man creates the most caloric desserts, often with an hour-long queue. I watched in awe as he layered chocolate and condensed milk between each slice of bread in a loaf then fried the whole thing. He also makes the most amazing gooey chocolate cakes fried in a pan and stuffed with banana and sweet milk. On the first night we waited almost an hour for one, then on the second night realised there was a lady making the exact same with no fuss or queue… So that’s your top tip from me. Look for the stand on the other side of the square branded ‘murtabak’.

How to get to + around Nusa Penida

Catch a ferry from Bali. Many companies will pick you up from your Bali accommodation and drop you back there after . It doesn’t have to be the same place you were picked up from – we left from Uluwatu and got dropped back in Canggu. Sort this with your accommodation, any tour agency or book your ticket online with Klook . Getting to your Nusa Penida accommodation – you’ll need to haggle with the taxi drivers at the pier. Try not to get ripped-off – they wanted 150,000 IDR for a 15-minute ride and the lowest we managed to get one down to was 80,000. Getting around Nusa Penida – hiring a scooter for 70,000 IDR a day (and filling up the tank for 10,000) is your best option. Do this if you have ridden before because of the notoriously bad roads. If you’re not confident with this option, sort out a scooter or taxi tour with your accommodation or book one online .

Finally, the street art!

Pink and blue turtle street art Nusa Penida

Make sure to seek out some street art during 3 days in Nusa Penida! In my opinion, the best art, always tells a story or highlights a struggle: in the case of Nusa Penida, it references the marine animals and their fight against pollution. New bits are popping up all the time, for example this colourful turtle image which was being painted during our visit. Due to the ever-changing nature of street art, I can’t promise what you’ll spy. I hope you find some good bits!

3-Day Trip to Nusa Penida, Indonesia: A Perfect Tour Itinerary

  • Facebook 18

3 Days in Nusa Penida - Itinerary (Bali, Indonesia)

Nusa Penida is a gorgeous, mostly undeveloped island just 30 minutes off the eastern coast of Bali in Indonesia . And unlike Bali, you won’t find hundreds of yoga studios or organic cafes there. Just miles of spectacular cliffs towering over the ocean, exhilarating hiking adventures, white sand beaches, and the friendliest locals.

And while it is possible to do a day trip to Nusa Penida from Bali, that is certainly not the best way to explore this amazing island. We would recommend that you leave your heavy luggage at your hotel in Bali, pack a small bag, and spend at least three days touring the island by motorbike. You’ll stay in different hotels each night and love the freedom that you get from the open road!

Know Before You Go

  • The currency in Indonesia is the Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) and at the time of writing, the exchange rate was 14,294 IDR to $1 USD. So if we say something costs 10,000 IDR, that’s less than a dollar.
  • Be sure to get money out of the ATM before leaving Bali. Only a few of the ATMs in Nusa Penida accept foreign cards and they often run out of money or simply don’t work.
  • The roads are terrible! If you’ve never driven a motorbike before, this probably isn’t the best place to learn.
  • Driving everywhere on Nusa Penida takes longer than expected. A 3-4 mile trip can easily take 30 minutes to an hour depending on the weather and road conditions. Leave yourself plenty of extra time so you don’t get caught driving long distances on your motorbike after dark.
  • Both men and women must wear sarongs to enter temples on Nusa Penida Island. While some have sarongs that you can borrow, others do not. It’s worth bringing something that you can tie around your waist, just in case.
  • Check out our complete list of things to know before you visit Nusa Penida !

What to Pack for Nusa Penida

Since you’ll be touring the island on a motorbike, you’ll just want to bring a small backpack that is comfortable to wear all day.

  • Swimsuit and coverup
  • Tennis shoes
  • Quick-dry towel
  • Socks and underwear
  • Compact camera and/or GoPro Camera

tips trip ke nusa penida

If rain is in the forecast during your visit, we’d recommend bringing one extra change of clothes and keeping it in a ziplock bag. We were drenched at the end of every day from the rain or the ocean, and since nothing ever dries in the humid climate all of our clothes were soggy for the entire trip.

Getting to Nusa Penida Island

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Fast Ferry

Ferries depart from the Sanur Pier on the eastern coast of Bali. This is about 30-45 minutes from Kuta, 1 hour from Seminyak, and 1-1.5 hours from Canggu , and 2 hours from either Ubud or Uluwatu. It’s not far but traffic on Bali can be terrible so leave yourself plenty of time to get to Sanur before your boat’s scheduled departure.

The ferry trip from Sanur Bali to Nusa Penida takes just 45 minutes and will cost anywhere from 150,000 to 200,000 IDR per person depending on who sells you the ticket and how hard you bargain. Ferries depart frequently throughout the day so if you’re traveling during the low season, it’s easy to show up at the pier and just buy a ticket for the next departure.

During high season you should book your ferry well in advance as they occasionally sell out for weeks at a time. We recommend doing it online at Bookaway.com . There you can see all of the fast ferry routes and schedules as well as compare prices.

Check Fast Ferry Schedule & Ticket Prices

Motorbike Basics

As soon as you arrive at the pier on Nusa Penida, you’ll be approached by men offering to rent you a bike right there. And if you head to the main street just one block over, there are several small shops renting motorbikes as well. Expect to pay around 70,000 IDR per day.

It doesn’t really matter where you rent your bike from as long as it is in good condition. You’re going to be riding on some rough roads in remote parts of the island so you definitely don’t want to have your motorbike break down on Nusa Penida!

Be sure to check the following prior to committing to a bike:

  • Make sure both brakes work well as there are a lot of hills on the island.
  • Check the shocks – you’re going to have a bumpy ride!
  • Take photos of any existing damage, just in case.
  • Fill up on gas before you set out.
  • There are small shops all over the island that sell petrol but you won’t use it much as you’ll be covering very small distances.

We had great luck with our bike from Double-G Guesthouse , they clearly keep their rentals in good condition.

Complete 3-Day Itinerary for Nusa Penida Island in Indonesia

Day 1: angel’s billabong, broken beach, and crystal bay.

You’re going to have a lot of activities over the next three days so we would recommend catching an early ferry from Bali to Nusa Penida Island. As mentioned previously, you can rent a motorbike from one of the entrepreneurs hanging out at the pier or head one street over and shop around for a good bargain on a motorbike rental.

Once you have your bike and a full tank of gas, it’s time to begin your tour of Nusa Penida! Head south towards Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach . Be careful while driving on this road because it gets a lot of vehicle traffic from the day tours of the island and the cars don’t leave a lot of room for motorbikes to get by. You may want to pull off to the side if you see a line of them heading your way.

The road to Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach is the worst on the entire island so plan for a bumpy ride. Not only is the road badly damaged, but because of the long distance, you must drive on the rutted, rocky road.

Angel’s Billabong

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Angel's Billabong

When you arrive at Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach, you’ll need to pay the entrance fee of 5,000 IDR per person and 1,000 IDR for motorbike parking. There are several small restaurants here if you want to have a snack or rest with an ice-cold beverage before continuing on your tour. Be aware that this is one of the most popular tourist attractions on the island so expect to encounter crowds.

Angel’s Billabong is a small swimming hole with gorgeous, turquoise water that overlooks the ocean. It is surrounded by high rocks so you can enjoy the view from above. It’s one of the most beautiful spots on Nusa Penida.

Swimming here is only allowed right at low tide and is roped off when it is deemed unsafe by the “lifeguard” on duty. There have been incidents of unsuspecting tourists getting swept out to sea by a particularly large sneaker wave here so safety is a priority. Be sure to check the tide report prior to visiting as swimming here is absolutely amazing!

Broken Beach

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Broken Beach

Broken Beach is essentially a beach that is completely surrounded by cliff walls; a natural sea arch allows water to flow through. You can walk the loop trail high above the enclosed beach area and see the spectacular views from all angles. There are even several platforms that you can stand on to best capture a photo.

Your final stop for the day is Crystal Bay . It’s only a little over 11 miles from Angel’s Billabong, but it will take you about an hour to drive back over that terrible, bumpy road you just came down!

Crystal Bay

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Crystal Bay

The water in Crystal Bay is calm and it’s perfect for snorkeling. You can rent snorkel gear on the beach for 50,000 IDR to see the coral. Or you can just relax on the beach with an ice-cold Bintang in hand. There are numerous small warungs lining the beach that serve food and drinks.

If you have an extra day on Nusa Penida, you can also sign onto one of the daily diving/snorkeling trips to Manta Point where you can swim with giant manta rays (more about that below).

Be sure to watch the sunset on the beach at Crystal Bay, the sun sets behind the huge rock in the middle of the bay and it’s absolutely magical. You’ll be happy if you’re staying nearby so you don’t have to worry about driving after dark!

Where to Stay: Puri Penida Cottage is just a short, 5-minute walk from the bay. Each darling little bungalow has a large, comfortable bed and air conditioning to keep you cool in the heat.

Day 2: Kelingking Beach and Tembeling Beach

From Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach, you’ll have a 30-minute ride to Kelingking Beach . This is the most famous location on Nusa Penida due to the fact that the peninsula jutting out into the ocean resembles a T-Rex when viewed from the right angle. This is also a very touristy spot, but most visitors simply snap a few photos from the lookout at the top and don’t actually hike down to the beautiful beach below.

Kelingking Beach

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Kelingking Beach

Again, you’ll pay 5,000 IDR per person to enter the area and 1,000 IDR to park your motorbike. You’ll walk past a few small restaurants to the beginning of the stairway where views of the T-Rex will start to come into view. This is where the crowds gather. Keep walking down to where the actual trail begins and you’ll start to see fewer and fewer people.

The trail to Kelingking Beach follows the ridgeline of the peak and then takes an abrupt right turn for an even steeper descent down the mountain. It takes about 45 minutes to descend, and an hour to hike back up. You’ll most certainly want tennis shoes here as the trail is very steep and rocky. And while there are railings for most of the hike, there are times you’ll need to do some rock scrambling. And the railings get less sturdy toward the bottom of the hike.

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Kelingking Beach

But once you reach Kelingking Beach, you’ll know it was all worth it! Here you’ll find a beautiful and secluded white sand beach, where only the most dedicated visitors are lounging. There is one small stand where you can purchase drinks or snacks but be sure to bring your own water, just in case it’s closed. The waves here are intense so be careful.

Your next stop is Tembeling Beach and Forest which is just over four miles away from Kelingking Beach and should take about 40 minutes on your motorbike. If you want to stop for lunch on your way there, we recommend heading inland to Warung D’Coconut . It’s a little bit out of your way but the food is excellent!

Tembeling Beach

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Tembeling Beach

Once you reach the turnoff for Tembeling Beach, it’s about 1.85 miles down a steep paved lane just wide enough for one motorbike at a time. It’s a total forest surrounding you the whole way and there’s a steep drop-off on one side. But the vegetation is so thick you probably won’t even notice how far the drop really is.

If you’re touring Nusa Penida by car or you don’t feel comfortable navigating such a steep road on your own motorbike, you can hire a motorbike taxi driver to take you down to Tembeling Beach. There are a handful of drivers that wait at the turnoff from the main road. The going seems to be 50,000 INR for the round-trip journey plus some wait time at the bottom.

Once you arrive at the parking lot for Tembeling Beach, you’ll still need to descend a set of steep steps down to the beach. It’s just about a 10-minute walk to the beach at the bottom. There are two freshwater swimming holes here, one about halfway down, and one that overlooks the ocean. It’s so refreshing to cool off in the calm water, without getting salty or sandy from the beach.

If you do want to enjoy the beach here, it is small but incredibly beautiful. Enclosed by tall cliff walls with large rocks on either side. It feels totally secluded and you’re likely to see more locals than foreigners here. In fact, this was our favorite spot on the whole island of Nusa Penida!

There is a small swing set here and usually a lady selling drinks and snacks. You’ll want to spend at least an hour here soaking in the pools and enjoying the ocean view.

Our favorite place to stay on Nusa Penida is The Mesare Resort ; just 7 miles from Tembeling Beach. After a long day of climbing stairs, you’ll definitely want to have an ice-cold beer while swimming in their lovely pool. Plus, you’ll have the best night’s sleep in their massive and luxurious beds!

Where to Stay: The Mesare Resort is one of the best hotels on the whole island. Offering super comfortable beds, luxurious outdoor showers, and daily yoga sessions, you’ll have a hard time leaving this little piece of paradise.

If you’re on a tight budget, Agasta Villa is just another great option in the area though you’ll have to do a little backtracking. The bungalows are brand new, with comfortable beds, air conditioning, and a hot shower!

Where to Eat: Warung D’Coconut is a great stop for lunch, although a bit pricier than many of the warungs on the island. Be sure to try the calamari and the gado-gado! You can also eat dinner there if you’re staying at Holy Hill Villa.

Day 3: Peguyangan Waterfall, Diamond Beach, and Atuh Beach

You’ll want to get an early start again today especially if you’re hoping to catch a ferry back to Bali in the afternoon. Your first stop is Peguyangan Waterfall . It’s four miles from The Mesare Resort and should take you about 30 minutes to drive there.

Peguyangan Waterfall

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Peguyangan Waterfall (Blue Stairs)

You’ll need to pay 5,000 IDR to park your motorbike and 10,000 IDR per person to rent a sarong. Both men and women need to wear sarongs here as there is a sacred temple at the bottom.

You may have seen photos of Peguyangan Waterfall’s famous blue stairs that cling to the side of a cliff wall and lead down to the ocean below. This hike is intense and not for anyone who is afraid of heights. Some of the stairs are concrete, but others are blue metal slats where you can see through to the ocean far, far below your feet.

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Peguyangan Waterfall

When you reach the bottom there is a small temple. And past that you’ll see a sign for a “bathing area”. The steps down to the bathing area are slippery so be careful here. At the base of the stairs are several man-made pools that catch the spring water from the mountain. Here you can relax and enjoy the waves crashing into the rocks below you. If you’re wondering why it’s called a waterfall, you’ll notice a small one-off to the right side when you’re facing the ocean in the pools.

Your next stop is Diamond Beach . It’s about 12.5 miles from the Peguyangan Waterfall but will take about an hour by motorbike. If you have extra time to spare, stop at Teletubbies Hill for the beautiful views.

Diamond Beach

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Diamond Beach

It’s 10,000 IDR per person to enter the Diamond Beach / Atuh Beach area. Once you park you have three choices. You can take a right and go down the stairs to Diamond Beach. Another option is to go straight and head up the hill to a small temple with nice views. Or, take a left and head down the stairs to Atuh Beach.

The stairs down to Diamond Beach are very picturesque as you get the view of the beach below. There are usually people here taking photos. The descent is tricky in some areas but there are ropes to hang on to.

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Diamond Beach

There is a woman with a small stand at the bottom. You can pay 100,000 IDR to get harnessed into her awesome swing off the side of the cliff, or 50,000 IDR to sit in one of her “nests” for a photo shoot. She also has cold drinks and snacks for sale.

The waves here are aggressive, and during high tide, there’s not a lot of beach left to sit on. But it is the most beautiful beach on Nusa Penida and well worth the trip down.

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Atuh Beach

Atuh Beach has much calmer water for swimming or snorkeling and many more amenities. The beach is lined with warungs selling seafood, fruit shakes, and cold Bingtangs.

You can rent two lounge chairs with an umbrella between them for 50,000 IDR. It’s the perfect place to grab lunch and spend an afternoon on Nusa Penida.

Rumah Pohon Tree House

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Rumah Pohon Tree House

While you’re in the area, you may as well stop by the famous Instagram tree houses of Nusa Penida. The Rumah Pohon Tree Houses are small houses that have been built into the trees high on a hill with spectacular views of Diamond Beach below. They have become quite famous on social media with hundreds of photographers descending on the viewpoint daily to snap the perfect Instagram selfie.

If you can plan far enough in advance, you can actually spend a night in one of the tree houses , but they book out months in advance. Sleeping in one of the tree houses is quite expensive for how basic the accommodations are, but you’re really paying for the view.

Or you can simply pay 10,000 IDR per person to check them out and snap a few photos.

Back to Bali

From Atuh Beach, it’s just a 1-hour drive back to the pier on the west side of Nusa Penida where you’ll drop off your motorbike and catch the ferry back to Bali.

One interesting stop along the way is the Goa Giri Putri Temple. This Hindu temple is hidden in a cave and you’ll have to crawl through a small entrance to access it. Once you’re inside; however, it opens up into a large cavern filled with incense smoke and Hindu worshippers. As usual, you’ll need to be wearing a sarong to enter the temple, but there are a few shops nearby offering cheap sarong rentals.

And finally, if you have left yourself some extra time then stop at the famous Penida Colada beach bar for happy hour (2 for 1 cocktail from 4 pm – 7 pm) and beautiful sunset views of Mount Agung.

Where to Stay: If you have time consider spending a night at Kempoel Jangkang . It’s just a short, 5-minute motorbike ride from Diamond Beach and Atuh Beach. Accommodations are basic but rooms have air conditioning and the food here is some of the best on the entire island!

Where to Eat: The food at Kempoel Jangkang is fantastic. Even if you’re not staying at the hotel, it’s a good stop for lunch on your way to Diamond Beach. There are also numerous warungs at Atuh Beach offering food and drinks.

If You Have More Time on Nusa Penida Island

There are a few popular attractions that we left off the list for various reasons. If you can spend more time on the island, it’s worth checking them out!

Manta Point

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Giant Manta Ray at Manta Point

One of the most popular sites on Nusa Penida is actually underwater. If you have an extra day on Nusa Penida, sign up for a boat trip to Manta Point. The boats typically leave from Crystal Bay. They will include pickup services from your hotel if you’re staying on the west side of the island.

You’ll have the opportunity to swim with giant manta rays which will undoubtedly be a highlight of your trip to Nusa Penida !

Banah Cliff Point

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Banah Cliff Point

Banah Cliff Point is located between Kelingking Beach and Tembeling Beach. We left it off our itinerary because the last mile of the road to get there is incredibly rough. We ended up parking our bike about 1/4 mile from the point and walking the rest of the way. There are nice views of the cliffs from both sides of the point. But, in our opinion, they were no better than the views from, say, Kelingking. If you do go, there is a really friendly little shop. It has a few hot dishes as well as chips and cold drinks for sale.

Saren Cliff Point

Nusa Penida Itinerary, Bali, Indonesia: Saren Cliff Point

Saren Cliff Point is located on the coast between Tembeling Beach and Peguyangan. And as with Banah, the last mile or so of the road here is terrible. And again, the views are nice, but it may not be worth the difficult drive if you are short on time.

Pura Puncak Mundi

Pura Puncak Mundi is the temple that is located on the highest point on the island. Men and women must wear a sarong to enter the temple, and as with all Indonesian temples, foreigners are not allowed to enter the inner sanctuary.

The drive up to the temple is really beautiful, with views of the lush vegetation for miles in all directions. However, the temple isn’t all that interesting and people there will look at you like you are crazy for visiting. Plus, there are no real views from the actual temple.

Enjoy your tour of Nusa Penida Island!

A Guide to Touring Nusa Penida

  • August 8, 2022

An island adventure doesn’t need to begin and end with Bali. There is a whole archipelago of islands to explore, including the tropical and beautiful Nusa Penida.

Just a hop, skip and a jump from Bali, Nusa Penida is the perfect destination for incredible day trips and long weekends.

The island is jam packed with must-see natural sights, luxurious restaurants and beach clubs to keep you busy.

A tour of Nusa Penida can include hiking, swimming, snorkelling, lounging, and riding the island by motorbike to enjoy every inch of the small 210㎢.

Get ready for some serious wanderlust!

Getting from Bali to Nusa Penida

Start your island adventure off right with a boat trip across the ocean to Nusa Penida.

The main ports of Bali – Sanur, Tanjong Benoa and Padang Bai – all offer the route either by fast boat or public ferry over to Nusa Penida’s Toya Pakeh Harbour.

The fast boat will only take around 45 minutes, while the public ferry can take up to an hour.

Get ready for stunning views of the islands and crashing waves on your way to paradise.

Sanur Beach to Nusa Penida

tips trip ke nusa penida

If you are searching for ease, then Sanur Beach will be the best port for you.

It’s just a short drive from the popular tourist towns, Canggu, Seminyak and Kuta, and has a number of companies operating including Crown Fast Cruise, Mola-Mola Express and El Rey Junior.

Running regularly from 7am through to 5pm, there is a boat to suit every plan.

If you are planning a Nusa Penida day trip, catch the earliest boat possible to make the most of your time on the island. For those planning to enjoy a longer stay, then you have the freedom of a later boat.

Starting from just IDR150,000 (approx. US $10) for a one way ticket, a trip to Nusa Penida can be affordable!

Tanjung Benoa to Nusa Penida

tips trip ke nusa penida

Tanjung Benoa is close to Nusa Dua, and the ideal port for those staying in Uluwatu and Jimbaran.

It only operates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and runs once a day – so you need to plan well!

A one way ticket costs around IDR150,000 and can be bought online or at the port, perfect for a last minute trip or long planned getaway.

Start your Nusa Penida tour off on a comfortable and clean boat ride.

Padang Bai to Nusa Penida

tips trip ke nusa penida

Padang Bai is the starting port for the public ferry.

A less fancy option at a fraction of the cost, for those who want the real local experience, this is the best transfer to Nusa Penida for you!

The public ferry is used by local commuters, and those wanting to head over to Nusa Penida with their motorbike.

Costing only IDR35,000 for a one way trip, if you are on a tight budget, it doesn’t mean you need to miss out on a paradise island trip.

Getting Around Nusa Penida

Hop off the boat and jump into your private transport or a hired motorbike.

Much like driving in Bali , Nusa Penida is a motorbike haven with rough terrain and towering hills that can make a beginner anxious.

Unless you are a pro-rider, I would recommend hiring a private driver and car for your stay – it is affordable, safe, and gives you a chance to relax.

Nusa Penida by Motorbike

tips trip ke nusa penida

It’s as easy to hire a motorbike in Nusa Penida as it is in Bali. Show a form of ID and you will be handed the keys to a freedom getaway.

The roads are a lot more rough and ready than the main island, so if you are new to the world of two-wheelers, this isn’t a place to try it out.

There are plenty of places to hire a bike right off the boat. For IDR75,000 (approx. US$ 5) you can put your adventure in your hands, as well as helmets – which must be worn no matter how short the ride.

I recommend filling up the fuel close to the harbour, as stations become far and few between as you head deeper into the island.

Nusa Penida by Rental Car

A Nusa Penida tour by car is much more comfortable and fun, especially if you are travelling with children.

Along with a private local driver, you can explore the landscapes and hotspots of the island with cool air-conditioning and local radio stations.

Look out the windows to bask in the beauty of the island from sprawling fields to tall cliff tops overlooking the ocean.

Up to 10 hours of a private car and driver will cost around IDR950,000 (approx. US$ 65).

You can sit back, relax and enjoy stunning scenery as you visit all of the tourist attractions Nusa Penida is famous for. Sounds perfect to me!

Where to Stay in Nusa Penida

After long days of exploring Nusa Penida, you need a comfortable and cosy spot to rest and unwind. The island is packed with stunning accommodations from hostels to private luxury villas that suit every budget.

Here are some of my favourite places to stay on Nusa Penida .

A Secluded, Idyllic Cottage

House of gubuk paon.

tips trip ke nusa penida

A traditional style home encompassed by rolling hills and lush views, House of Gubuk Paon is located a 20 minute drive from the harbour, close by to Kutampi and Sampalan beaches.

Accommodating up to 6 guests in the 1-bedroom space, House of Gubuk Paon is a perfect escape for a group of friends or family with children.

Cosy up and spend calm evenings after a day of touring Nusa Penida in your own private paradise oasis.

An Ocean View Paradise

Villa victoria.

tips trip ke nusa penida

Villa Victoria is a sprawling tropical haven overlooking the ocean from its cliffside position.

With a huge wooden decking, infinity swimming pool and the option of 1-bedroom or beachfront villas, it is a stunning place to spend a relaxed Nusa Penida trip.

Combining beautiful wooden architecture, furnishings and modern amenities, it has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

After a day of venturing the island, you can dip into the shared pool or jacuzzi, snuggle up in bed and spend time looking out over the endless turquoise views.

Each villa has a private kitchenette with all the facilities to prepare your morning coffee or evening snack.

Villa Victoria is a spacious and luxurious island resort.

Just a Moment’s Walk from the Beach

Crystal bay villa.

Ideally located just a short walk from the famous Crystal Bay, this resort is a peaceful and beautiful spot to spend a romantic Nusa Penida adventure.

Cosy up with your loved one in one of the quaint poolside bungalows, dine over candle light and explore every inch of the paradise island.

Just 800m from its namesake beach, Crystal Bay Villa has a team of friendly staff who will be on hand to help arrange any extra services or excursions upon request.

Lounge, venture and spend quality time with your loved one, or friends, in this idyllic resort surrounded by towering palm trees.

A Luxury Island Bungalow

Tropical glamping.

tips trip ke nusa penida

A picture-perfect Instagram dream, Tropical Glamping is a bright bungalow paradise with ocean views, lush tropical surroundings and cosy amenities.

A peaceful and serene hideaway, it is a perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of exploring Nusa Penida.

The bed faces out over stunning views to wake up to bright blue skies and turquoise waters, with views as far as the eye can see.

With a thatched roof, en-suite bathroom and outdoor cinema – whether you are looking to spend a quiet stay away from the crowds, or use the bungalow as a base to explore everything the island has to offer, Tropical Glamping is a great option.

Traditional Wooden Bungalow in the Jungle

Tanah damai.

With intricate carvings, a canopy bed and modern facilities, Tanah Damai is immersed in nature, encompassed by jungles and overlooking expansive green views.

Ideal for a romantic retreat or nature-lovers escape, it is located away from the crowds but just a short walk to Gamat Bay.

An eco-friendly and conservational resort, there is no air-conditioning in the bungalow but well-placed air slots to allow for easy ventilation.

For a relaxing and comfortable stay without any harm to the environment, Tanah Damai is a peaceful and tranquil getaway.

Lavish and Modern Villa

The arancia villa.

Just a 4 minute drive from Toya Pakeh harbour, close by to all the must-see tourist attractions and a moment from stunning beaches, The Arancia Villa is a central and comfortable base for a Nusa Penida tour trip.

Enjoy all the hotspots of the town with a luxurious and private accommodation to return to.

Types of Tours in Nusa Penida & Must-Visit Spots

Touring Nusa Penida can be done 1 of 3 ways –

  • You can take the adventure into your own hands and explore the island yourself
  • Hop onboard a fully catered day trip of Nusa Penida that will take you to the highlights of the island before heading back to Bali
  • Spend a longer stay visiting each attraction without any rush with a private tour

It depends what kind of traveller you are as to which option will suit you.

Solo travellers and backpackers will love the first option to venture around on their own schedule. Whereas families and couples can enjoy planned out tours – whether a day or longer trip – to make sure they can check off each of the must-see spots.

Nusa Penida Day Trips

tips trip ke nusa penida

Organised day trips to Nusa Penida are a great way to be able to explore the island hitting all the must-see hotspots with a team of pro guides.

The price usually includes all travel and meals so you don’t need to worry about extra costs – other than souvenirs.

For someone on a quick stop-off in Bali, a one-day round trip is a perfect way to not miss out on the paradise island.

Starting around IDR 650,000 (approx. US $45) for a half day tour, there are many operators around Bali and Nusa Penida that have schedules packed with activities and extras.

Nusa Penida Private Tours

tips trip ke nusa penida

If you have some time to kill and want to have an extended Nusa Penida experience, spending a few nights on the island and enjoying private tours is a great way to be able to plan your own itinerary, without getting tired from riding a bike across the rocky roads all day.

With one of the affordable private drivers – as previously mentioned – you can create your own tour of Nusa Penida, hitting all the spots you want to see, along with the suggestions from the local driver.

Sit back and enjoy the landscape from the cool air-conditioning, and spend as much time as you wish at each stop.

It is the perfect middle ground for a more personalised tour. Although slightly more expensive, this is definitely my favourite to explore Nusa Penida.

13 Must-See Spots in Nusa Penida

tips trip ke nusa penida

So, you’ve chosen the type of tour to suit you, now – where do you go?

Here are all the must-see spots on the island including those which are on guided tours, and some hidden gems for travellers venturing off the beaten track.

Broken Beach

On the West coast of Nusa Penida, Broken Beach is one of the island’s most famous, and stunning, spots.

The little cove is encompassed with a sprawling cliffside that gives way to a completely natural and beautiful archway.

Allowing the ocean to flow in and out of the cove, the archway is picturesque and not to be missed. You can bask in awe of the wonders of nature from the cliffside view point.

Angel’s Billabong

Neighbouring Broken Beach, Angel’s Billabong needs some careful planning before you visit – although travelling with a planned tour will have this figured out for you.

Depending on the high or low tide will determine what view you get from this incredible scenic attraction.

For the best views, head here early to catch low tide – around 8am!

But be aware, the attraction is incredibly popular and can get busy quickly.

Devil’s Billabong

What’s an angel without a devil? Hanging on another shoulder of Nusa Penida is Devil’s Billabong.

A cove of crashing waves, sharp rocks and crystal clear water, head here to catch some incredible pictures of the waves smashing the rocks and to get away from the regular tourist crowd.

Kelingking Beach

Known as Secret Point or T-Rex Beach, Kelingking Beach is the one tour stop-off point that companies use to lure in guests.

A Nusa Penida star, rightfully so, if you are heading out on a solo tour, make sure this is on the list.

The walk down the cliffside to the beach is dotted with magnificent viewpoints that offer a perfect picture, but heed the warnings.

A bamboo rail is all that separates the pathway from the cliff’s edge, you should remain vigilant and careful on your way down the cliff.

Once your toes plant into the brilliant white sand, the trek down is totally worth it.

Crystal Bay Beach

Crystal Bay Beach is the hotspot beach of the island with some of the best sunset views.

A starting point for snorkelling and diving tours, the white sand paradise is just 30 minutes from the harbour.

Lined with stalls, warungs and shops, it is an ideal place to spend a day on the sand relaxing.

Not only are the white sands and turquoise waters beautiful, you can snorkel right off the beach above the coral reef. Stunning!

Diamond Beach

The staircase leading you down to Diamond Beach gives you outstanding views of the cliff side, white sand and crystal blue waters.

Taking only minutes to get down, it is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island for a relaxing day in the sun.

Rarely found on Nusa Penida tour itineraries, this is a spot to check out for when you have some downtime to unwind.

A real tropical island oasis, Atuh Beach is the stuff of dreams.

A 10-minute walk down the cliffside will lead you past jungle viewpoints overlooking the stunning landscape until you reach the perfectly white sand.

Atuh Beach features its own beautiful natural archway that is magically aligned for majestic sunrise views – take note photographers!

Teletubbies Hill

We all know the iconic rolling hills of the Teletubbies – if you don’t, don’t tell me, I’ll feel old.

As the name suggests, this must-see spot in Nusa Penida is luscious, sprawling and unique.

It’s best to explore the vast hill formation by foot so you can stop to take pictures, look out over expansive views of Nusa Penida and enjoy the incredible scenery.

Included in 2 day tours, I love this spot on the island – even if for nostalgia.

Tembeling Natural Pool

Tembeling Natural Pool is an island hidden gem located down a rocky and rough road.

Off the beaten path, it is a spot for backpackers and adventurers to explore.

After a tough drive – not recommended for beginners – you will take a 30-minute hike down to the pools.

Encompassed with jungles, dotted with statues and fountains and etched into the surrounding stone cliffs, it is a romantic and idyllic utopia.

Manta Point

It’s time for us to head under the water.

Manta Point can be organised as its own Nusa Penida diving tour starting in Bali and heading back right after the dive is done, it can also be part of an island based adventure as part of a longer stay.

Spreading to a huge 5m in length, Manta Rays are not dangerous but can be incredibly intimidating. That being said, if you are a confident diver, this is an experience that should be at the top of your list.

Dip into the cool ocean waters right off the boat, and swim with the gentle giants in their own natural habitat.

Banah Cliff Point

Towering above the ocean overlooking panoramic West-facing views, Banah Cliff Point is one of the best places to catch a Nusa Penida sunset.

A still relatively quiet spot, it is a beautiful place to take some tropical pictures and watch the sun dip into the horizon.

Watch out on the rocky cliff edge as there is no safety barrier!

Thousand Island Viewpoint

There are numerous viewpoints along the Thousand Island cliff side.

Looking out over jutting rocks from the ocean and the coast of Nusa Penida, it is a stunning place to take in tropical landscapes and the paradise setting.

Peguyangan Waterfall

Peguyangan Waterfall is a sacred site on Nusa Penida that the locals use as a place for water rituals and blessings.

After venturing down the blue staircase hugging the cliffside, you will reach the ‘spouts’.

Each has a different meaning and you must shower under each to be fully blessed and cleansed. Dotted with spiritual shrines it is a place of healing.

The oceanfront spot has small fresh water pools that look out over the ocean for a relaxing and truly blissful experience.

If you have the time, Peguyangan Waterfall is definitely worth a visit.

3-Day Tour Itinerary for Nusa Penida

tips trip ke nusa penida

Now you know all the spots to hit, here is our suggested tour itinerary for a 3-day adventure around Nusa Penida .

The best way to tackle the island, and make sure you visit all the must-see spots, is to break the island into areas – East and West.

Day One in Nusa Penida

  • Take the first boat over from Bali to make the most of the day. The trips start at 8am landing you on Nusa Penida early to start your adventure.
  • Grab a rental bike or hop into your private car – I prefer touring with a car as it makes things easy. It also means you can get a head start on your tour without having to stop to drop off big luggage.
  • First stop –  Gamat Bay . Whether you fancy dipping into the water right away, or just enjoying the view over the ocean, Gamat Bay is a great first stop to initiate your Nusa Penida tour.
  • Devil’s Billabong Get some beautiful pictures of the angry waters crashing over the impressive rocks.
  • Angel’s Billabong You may have missed low tide, but Angel’s Billabong still provides some incredible views.
  • Broken Beach This is another viewpoint where you can capture some beautiful pictures of the Nusa Penida landscape with the naturally made archway.
  • Kelingking Beach This stop off will be dependent on your timings as you don’t want to be hiking the trail in the hot midday sun. Try to head here before it gets too hot, or after the midday hours to avoid heat exhaustion. Then spend the rest of your day relaxing on the sand.
  • Banah Cliff Point Finally, your first day on the island should be memorable, which means a stunning sunset view from the Banah Cliff Point.

Day Two in Nusa Penida

  • Tembeling Beach, Forest and Natural Pools Today is adventure day, and it starts off strong with an adventure into the jungle to find majestic natural pools.
  • Peguyangan Waterfall Next up, we are gonna connect with the spiritual side of Nusa Penida and cleanse in the waterfall and dip into the rock pools.
  • Manta Point For the divers among us, you can skip those 2 spots and spend the day out in the ocean playing with the manta rays.
  • Teletubbies Hill End the day in-land on teletubbies hill overlooking the expanse of the island as the sunsets.

Day Three in Nusa Penida

  • Sunrise at Atuh Beach Wake up early for your last day in paradise and watch a stunning sunrise at Atuh Beach
  • Thousand Island Viewpoint Look out over the landscape from Thousand Island Viewpoint and Rumah Pohon
  • Diamond Beach Spend some time relaxing around Diamond Beach – well deserved after battling the stairs!
  • Make the scenic drive back to the harbour Drive through the jungles, palm trees and hills to reach the harbour to head back over to Bali.

Don’t hold me to this itinerary. I can’t promise it will be better than the professionally curated tours of Nusa Penida, however, it is an efficient way to explore the island from West to East.

And, there are plenty of stops in-between to check out!

Final Thoughts

There you go! Everything you should and need to know about touring Nusa Penida.

Whether you decide to sign up for an all-inclusive package tour of Nusa Penida, or create your own itinerary – even follow mine – the paradise island awaits your adventure.

From West to East, the island is packed with must-see spots, stunning natural sights and tropical beaches that you’ve only previously dreamed of.

Now you have all the information, start booking your Nusa Penida trip!

The Ultimate Guide to Nusa Penida [2024]

Everything you need to know to plan your trip, including how to avoid the crowds..

The Ultimate Guide to Nusa Penida [2024]

Nusa Penida , just off the coast of Bali, is one of our favourite places to visit. The views are epic, it's not packed with villas yet, and the local culture here is fascinating & different from mainland Bali.

Here's everything you need to know to plan your trip - from whether it's worth your time, to how to get there and how to avoid the crowds.

TLDR: Nusa Penida is getting more crowded, but still worth visiting because the views are gorgeous. For the best experience, we'd highly recommend spending the night here , and going to East Penida . Skip snorkelling unless you're a strong swimmer.

1. The Basics

Is nusa penida worth visiting.

Nusa Penida is a complicated place. It's become increasingly popular in recent years thanks to IG, and many travellers have complained about needing to queue up at view points, and unsafe snorkelling practices.

We think it's still worth going if you love nature and outdoors because Nusa Penida is still one of the most beautiful places in Bali. If you have the time, you should spend a night or two here because you'll get to experience it away from the crowds and get to know the local community here.

What to See & Do at Nusa Penida

Most travellers go to Nusa Penida for its epic viewpoints

Nusa Penida is known for its epic viewpoints, snorkelling and diving. People usually go to West Nusa Penida for beach hopping & snorkelling at IG-hotspots like Kelingking Beach, Angel Billabong & Broken Beach (more below).

But what we really love about Nusa Penida is that it reminds us of Bali before mass tourism (if you stay after the daytrippers have left!). We love the tight-knit, heartfelt community here, the gorgeous local villages and the off-grid places still to be found on East Nusa Penida (see Points of Interest below).

How Much Time Do You Need

To really see the beauty of Nusa Penida, we'd highly recommend staying overnight

If you are looking to swing by the top sights for nice photos or don't have a lot of time, a day tour from Bali will suffice. This means that you'll be visiting the attractions at the same time as everyone else though so it'll be more crowded and touristy. If you're only visiting for a day and want to avoid the crowds, we'd recommend going to East Penida , which is less crowded and authentic.

Insider Tip: If you prefer to experience the local way of life, and see Nusa Penida's epic viewpoints without the crowds, we highly recommend coming here for at least 2 days .

Best Time to Go

Try to go during dry season between April to November, as most of the sights are outdoors and you may not get great pictures if it rains. But if you don't mind the rain you can visit Nusa Penida anytime really!

Manta rays can be seen all year round in Nusa Penida, but the best time to see them is from May to October. During this time, the water is calm and clear, and the manta rays are more active.

2. Getting There

Taking a boat from bali.

Most travellers would hop on a fast boat from Sanur in Bali to Nusa Penida

To get to Nusa Penida, you will need to take a 35-45 minutes' boat ride from Bali. You can get your boat tickets at the jetty, or buy it in advance .

Boat rides depart from Pantai Matahari Terbit Harbour in Sanur (main port) and Kusamba Port in Kusamba Beach. Sanur is the main port in Bali and has more frequent boat departures, and more modern jetties. If you're coming from the east side of Bali, you can go to Kusamaba Port, but the departures are less frequent.

Most of the fast boats located in Sanur leave at around 7.30am and then again during the mid morning around 10am, followed by an afternoon departure around 2.30pm or 3.30pm. They come back to Bali in clusters from 8am to 10am and 3.30pm to 4.30pm.

Hiring a Guide

Get a local to take you around and support Nusa Penida's local community!

While it is possible to get around Nusa Penida without a guide, we'd highly recommend getting one to support the local economy , and to take you to hidden gems that most travellers don't get to see .

Insider Tip: Do note though that the tourism industry in Nusa Penida isn’t as mature as the rest of Bali, so most guides for the tour companies offering trips to Nusa Penida don’t speak much English.

Getting Around Nusa Penida Island

There are three ways to get around Nusa Penida:

  • Book a guide in advance . This is the best option if you want to see hidden spots and have a more personalized experience. Your guide will arrange your round trip transfer from Bali (including hotel pick-up and boat transfers), take you around Nusa Penida by car, and share their knowledge of the island with you.
  • Hire a driver on the beach at Nusa Penida. You can also hire a car or scooter driver to take you around when you get to Nusa Penida. This is what most travellers do, but you will have less flexibility in terms of your itinerary. Most drivers on the beach also do not speak English, so it can be difficult to communicate with them if you have a specific plan in mind . However, if you are happy to see the usual highlights of Nusa Penida, then this is a perfectly fine option.
  • Renting a scooter at Nusa Penida. If you have a scooter licence, you can also rent a scooter at the Banjar Nyuh Harbour or at the accommodation you are staying. A one day hire starts at around IDR 70K. However, scooter rental should be reserved for highly experienced drivers, as the roads around Nusa Penida are narrow and challenging.

3. Points of Interest in Nusa Penida

If you're only going for a day trip, you'll need to choose between the West or the East side of the island. The island is large and a day is not enough to experience both sides of the island!

If you'd like epic viewpoints and snorkelling , head to West Penida . This is where the IG photo spots are, and where 90% of visitors go to.

If you like local culture, and off-the-beaten-path exploration, head to East Penida . Even better, stay overnight in Nusa Penida so you cover both sides of the island, and see Nusa Penida's beauty without the crowds.

West Penida

Kelingking beach (t-rex).

The famous IG picture at Kelingking Beach - looks like a T-Rex from above!

Located on the southeastern coast of the island, Kelingking Beach is known for its crystal clear waters and stunning cliffside which looks like the head of a T-Rex. It's the most famous beach on West Nusa Penida, and the most touristed by far. Sometimes you'll need to queue to get your picture at the viewpoint!

The main thing to do here is just take in the views. While you can also hike to the bottom of the cliff to get to the beach, few people do this on a day trip as there isn't enough time. It usually takes at least 1-2 hours to hike each way.

Insider Tip: The best way to experience Kelingking Beach without the crowds is to go in the late afternoon, when the daytrippers have left for the day. To do this, you'll need to stay overnight on the island, which we'd highly recommend.

Broken Beach

Beautiful Broken Beach

Broken Beach is a gorgeous viewpoint of an epic rock archway opening up to the sea. The name is a bit misleading, because you can't actually swim at Broken Beach, but the views here make it definitely worthwhile.

Our favourite part of this viewpoint is that as you look into the waters from the cliff, you might be able to spot manta rays just beneath the water's surface. It's very cool!

Angel Billabong

Angel Billabong has a lovely infinity pool, but we don't recommend swimming here

Just next to Broken Beach, on the southwestern coast of Nusa Penida, is Angel’s Billabong, a natural infinity pool surrounded by towering cliffs and crystal clear waters. We didn't find Angel Billabong super impressive (especially if you go during low tide when the pool is empty!), but the views are nice enough.

Insider Tip: The waters can be unpredictable with tide rushing in very quickly, so we don't recommend swimming here! Many travellers have warned of the danger here.

Top Snorkelling Spots

At Nusa Penida, you can do a full-day snorkelling trip , or a island tour that includes both sightseeing and snorkelling . Usually the guides will take you via speedboat to the snorkelling spots to see Manta Rays, turtles and gorgeous coral.

Manta Point

Gorgeous manta rays swim in the waters here

Snorkeling with manta rays at Manta Point in Nusa Penida is an unforgettable experience. These gentle giants are truly majestic creatures, and it is an incredible feeling to be able to see them up close. The best time to visit is during manta ray season, which typically runs from May to October. However, manta rays can be seen at Manta Point year-round.

Insider Tip: To snorkel at Manta Point, you will need to be a strong swimmer. The water can be quite choppy, and you will need to be able to swim against the current in order to stay in the area where the manta rays are feeding.

See serene turtles at Gamat Bay

This spot is quite difficult to reach by land, which has been helpful to preserve the ocean life nearby. This clear water spot is known for vibrant coral reefs and colourful schools of fish. Turtles are also known to hang out here!

Crystal Bay

Snorkel at Crystal Bay

This cozy little bay, blessed with super clear waters is great for beach goers and snorkellers alike. You will see quite a few boats docking here with snorkellers looking to find vibrants corals, colorful fish and even some turtles.

See gorgeous red corals

Perhaps most impressive site here is that of the gorgeous blood-red finger corals, which thrive at Wall Beach. When snorkelling here, you may even get a glimpse giant Moray eels, octopi, sweet-lip emperor fish, the red-toothed triggerfish, batfish, and more. The current is a bit strong, but you will see more fish here.

East Penida

Teletubbies hills.

Teletubbies Hill is an iconic hill in East Penida that local festivals are held at

This super cute and unique landscape features rolling blob-shaped green hills that resemble the set of the popular children's TV show "Teletubbies." The best time to see the hills is during rainy season (December-March) when the hills turn bright green.

Insider Tip: This is also the best sunset spot in Nusa Penida and hardly anyone goes there! To see sunset here though, you'll need to spend the night at Nusa Penida as boats back to Bali would have left for the day by then.

Seaweed Farms

Visit a local seaweed farm

Most people don't know this but seaweed farms dot the northeastern coast of Nusa Penida, invisible at high tide. Introduced to the island in the 1980s, seaweed farming experienced a revival during the COVID-19 pandemic, when tourism declined and locals needed a new way to make a living.

We loved going down to the ocean during low tide and seeing the acres of seaweed being grown there. There's something really special about seeing this local side of Nusa Penida that few travellers get to see. By visiting a seaweed farm, you can support local farmers and help them maintain a more local way of life apart from tourism.

Diamond Beach

The IG popular view from the Nusa Penida treehouse at Diamond Beach

Diamond Beach in East Nusa Penida is named after the diamond-shaped rock cliffs that jut out of the blue waters. The beach is accessible via a long staircase, and the walk down is worth it for the stunning views.

However, Diamond Beach has become increasingly crowded in recent years, especially with daytrippers. A treehouse has even been built on the beach for people to take pictures. The queues can be long and to be honest it just feels like a tourist trap (see video for the crowds at the Nusa Penida treehouse).

Insider Tip: If you want to avoid the crowds, try to visit the side of the beach without the treehouse. The views are just as good, and you'll have more space to relax and enjoy the beach!

Atuh Beach at low tide

Atuh Beach at East Penida is known for the epic view of a rock island formation which ends in an arch and sticks out of the gorgeous turquoise waters.

If you come here during low tide, the view of the arch is supplanted by an ocean bed full of otherworldly rocks.

Goa Giri Putri Temple

Goa Giri Putri Temple, a huge cave temple in Nusa Penida

Goa Giri Putri Temple is a really cool cave temple in East Penida. In a land of many sacred temples, this is one of the most sacred to the Balinese, with many coming from the main island to take part in purification.

Our favourite part about this temple is its entrance! The entrance to the cave is tiny, and visitors must duck crawl through it to enter. This is said to be a test of their intention and devotion.

The locals believe that if you have the right intention, no matter how big you are, you will be able to get through the tiny crevice!

Once inside, the cave opens up into a whole other world, with walls covered in carvings and paintings. It really did feel quite spiritual and otherworldly to us.

4. How to Avoid the Crowds

Even though only a small fraction of the visitors to Bali go to Nusa Penida, most travellers come here on a day trip. This means that everyone goes to the exact same places, at the exact same time.

This has led to overcrowding at popular spots and some dangerous practices - such as swimmers being carried away by the tide.

It's only going to get more crowded as plans are in place to build a glass elevator at the most popular highlight - Kelingking Beach.

There are a few ways to enjoy Nusa Penida without the crowds, and see it in a way you'll actually enjoy. Here are our top tips.

Travel slow & stay overnight

Stay overnight at one of the lovely guesthouses here. You'll be able to see Nusa Penida at its best, without the crowds

95% of visitors just go to Nusa Penida for a day trip so they end up at all the same spots at the exact same time.

If you stay overnight you can really enjoy the magic of the island, the hospitality of the locals and see the beautiful spots when the crowds have left. We love staying at the guesthouses here - they're a lot more chilled than in Bali, and the locals here are genuinely happy to have you.

Take a Local Guide

tips trip ke nusa penida

A local guide will be able to show you how to avoid crowded spots, and add colour to what you're seeing. This way you'll get to better understand the local lives and culture of people who live on Nusa Penida.

By taking a guide, you’ll also be contributing towards the local community with your visit.

Go to East Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida is home to several gorgeous local villages

We've seen both sides of the island and we much prefer the east! With the exception of the treehouse at Diamond Beach, East Nusa Penida has a ton of heart and the sense of community here is incredibly strong.

In addition to Teletubbies Hill, Goa Giri Putri Temple and the seaweed farms, we'd also highly recommend seeing Tanglad village if you have the time! It's one of the prettiest villages we've ever seen, and it just has a lovely energy about it where everyone is incredibly welcoming.

✈ Where To Start

This entire Nusa Penida itinerary takes place on Penida island in the province of Bali, but first you have to get there!

Fly to Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) in Bali, which is served by a bunch of budget friendly airlines with good ratings.

○ kelingking beach.

Start the day off at this epic cliff spot, one of the most photogenic and popular views anywhere in Bali. If you’re up for a real challenge, hike down to the beach and back up, but bring plenty of water!  

○ Paluang Cliff

Just a short distance from the famous Kelingking cliff is this alternate viewpoint with a lot less crowds. It’s very easy to visit and only adds a few minutes to your itinerary!  

○ Pererenan Cliff

This is another cliff spot that most tours pass up. If you’re interested, there’s a steep trail down to the bottom, where you can chill in a nice natural pool.  

○ Banah Cliff Point

This is a hidden gem, a very short hike with a great payoff. Follow the stairs down to the west edge of the cliffs and you’ll get an amazing view of the doughnut shaped Banah rock and the white cliffs.  

○ Tembeling Beach

End the day with a trek down to Tembeling Beach. You can do the whole hike on foot, or hire a motorcycle taxi to take you down and back up. There’s a refreshing natural pool at the bottom, and a sea cave that opens up to a view of the huge cliffs above.

• Day 2: East Penida

○ diamond beach.

Day 2 is about incredible beaches. Enjoy the views of Diamond Beach from the overlook, and then walk the stairs down to the white sand. I think this is one of the most amazing beaches in the world.  

○ Atuh Beach

Just a 2 minute walk from Diamond Beach is another one called Atuh Beach. This one may not be as ‘Instafamous’ but it’s still a great place to relax on the sand and get some food and drinks.  

○ Rumah Pohon Treehouse

This group of 3 wooden tree houses sits right next to Diamond Beach, just a 5 minute drive away. It’s an epic location and you can even stay the night in one of the tree houses if you want!  

○ Teletubbies Hill

This is a nice pull off spot you can hit on the drive north from the Diamond Beach area. The cone shaped ‘Teletubby’ hills are best seen shortly after the rainy season, when they’re a bright green color.  

○ Pura Goa Giri Putri Cave Temple

This is a Hindu temple inside of a big cave. You have to crawl through a tiny opening in the rock to access it, but the inside is way bigger than you might expect. It’s fascinating, and a nice change of pace from the other things on this itinerary.

• Day 3: Snorkeling + West Penida

○ snorkeling tour.

Wake up early for a 2-3 hour snorkeling tour on the west side of the island. Shared tours cost about 150k IDR per pax and this can be arranged with Nusa Penida Explorer (☎ +62 818-0533-3747 ). You’ll see rainbow corals, nemo fish, and maybe some manta rays and turtles if you’re lucky!  

○ Angel’s Billabong

Back on the road again! This is a multicolored tide pool that you can swim and soak in when the tide is low. Just watch out for high tide, because it can be risky here when the waves get really big.  

○ Broken Beach

This is another natural wonder: a horseshoe shaped bay carved out of the coastline. Sometimes you can even see manta rays floating around here on the surface of the ocean.  

○ Smoke Beach

This is an ocean ‘blowhole’ where the waves rush in and shoot up through a hole in the rocks. It’s a lot of fun to watch, and if the waves are big enough then you can see some seriously huge water bombs going off here. Just keep your distance and hide your electronics from all the spray!

• Day 4: South Penida

○ suwehan beach.

This is another exotic beach that will remind you of the huge cliffs and pointy rocks at Diamond Beach, although this one is a lot less trafficked and still off the tourist path for most day tours coming to Penida. Places like this are why Penida is nicknamed the ‘blue paradise island’ of Bali.  

○ Sekartaji Cliff Spot

This spot is still virtually unknown to tourism, but the parking is easy to access and the views from the cliffs are amazing. There’s even a narrow and sketchy path down to the point of the rock, but proceed very carefully!  

○ Manta Point

Most tourists know of Manta Point as a diving spot where you can see manta rays, but there’s also a scenic viewpoint here where you can watch the boats come and go. This spot is still very quiet, so it’s a very worthy addition to your Nusa Penida itinerary.  

○ Crystal Bay

This is a nice sunset beach with easy access, lots of sunbeds, and lined with food and drink shacks. Perfect place to wind down after a whirlwind tour of Penida island!

When Is The Best Time To Visit?

The best time to visit Penida depends on what you’re looking for:

☁ Bali’s rainy season runs from November to April. The weather during the day can be hot and humid at 90-95 F (32-35 C), but it’s less crowded during this time, and the rain is mostly at night.

☀ From May to August, the temps are a lot cooler, and it’s more breezy and sunny. This is the nicest weather. It’s also the high season, so it’s generally more crowded.

The sights on this Nusa Penida itinerary are spectacular at any time of the year, but I think the best months for photography are March to May (right after the rainy season ends), when the island is covered with green foliage.

Nusa Penida Private Driver

If you want to explore Nusa Penida in the comfort and safety of a van with a driver, my top recommendation would be GetYourGuide .

They offer a full day of driving and sightseeing in Penida (up to 8 hours) for 1-5 passengers. This tour includes the whole van + driver + petrol.

We've used GetYourGuide for lots of tours and activities around the world, and they're great! Highly recommended.

Where we stayed.

We stayed at Saren Villa on the north coast of Nusa Penida , and paid 240k Rupiah ($15 USD) for a private double room with cold A/C, hot shower, and good WiFi.

This is one of the cheapest options in Penida, and it's in a great location near the best restaurants! We were happy.

Prices may fluctuate from time to time, so just keep an eye out for a good deal.

Hello World Travel Guy. My mate and I are considering a trip to Nusa Penida – we have four days and are consiering 2 nights in two different locations (4 days). Where or what area would you recommend.

Regards Shane

' src=

Hi Shane. With 4 days in Nusa Penida, I think it would be best to stay in one location. However, two good places you can check out are Unicorn Bungalow (budget) and Akusara Jungle Resort (high end). These are both near the north shore, which has the harbor and lots of restaurants. Another option, if you want to stay close to the scenery, would be Kelingking Mesari Villa or Crystal Bay Bungalows . Regards

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO NUSA PENIDA

This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. We may receive a small commission when you make a purchase using our link.

I’ve been dreaming about visiting Nusa Penida for a long time. Nusa Penida is a beautiful island southeast of Bali, next to Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. It is still relatively unknown as many tourists choose to stay in Bali during their holidays. It takes approximately 40 minutes by boat from Nusa Dua Harbor to get to the island.

We recommend staying at least 2 days on Nusa Penida to be able to visit both sides. In this guide, you will find everything you need to know to visit Nusa Penida, all the best sights, how to get around the island, where to stay, eat, and more!

NUSA PENIDA DAY 1: WESTERN SIDE

Kelingking beach.

Subscribe to get our FREE eBook with tips on saving money when you travel!

ANGEL’S BILLABONG

Continue your Nusa Penida tour by driving 30 minutes to Angel’s Billabong , a beautiful rock formation that looks like a natural pool. We found this place quite busy compared to the others as the area in Angel’s Billabong is not very big. The walk is relatively easy and there is a small temple you can rest at. Although some tourists go into the pool, it is not a good idea as some tourists have injured themselves due to the strong currents that come to the rock pool.

Tip: Sunrise is the best time to get in the water, as the sea level is very low and you will not get hit by the waves.

BROKEN BEACH

Next to Angel’s Billabong is a little bay that has a natural arch leading out into the ocean locally known as “ Broken Beach .” The water is crystal clear and the views are amazing from above. Parking is easy on the dirt parking lot right next to the path. It is a pleasant walk around the arch and not as crowded as we were expecting. You can also get some amazing drone shots over Broken Beach!

Tip: You will also find little local cafes where you can buy water. Try their grilled corn for only 20,000 IDR (~$1.50)!

CRYSTAL BAY BEACH FOR SUNSET

Nusa penida day 2: eastern side, diamond beach, thousand island viewpoint.

Only a few minutes by car from Diamond Beach is Thousand Island Viewpoint. I hope you brought your energy because getting to the viewpoint means you will need to climb some stairs. It will take you 15 minutes to get to the lookout and reach the famous Nusa Penida treehouse. There are many points where you can stop for a while and admire the beauty of the island. We were impressed by the colors of the water, it was so blue, so pure.

NUSA PENIDA TREEHOUSE

After spending some time appreciating the view of Diamond Beach from the distance, you will find the two little treehouses at the top of the viewpoint. These treehouses are actually on AirBnB and you can rent them for the night if you want to watch the sunset, although there’s no Wifi, AC or anything nearby. But it is the perfect place to relax away from everyone.

You may also need to queue to get the famous photo up on the treehouse as they are empty during the day. After you are done here, keep going up the hill and you will find the last lookout with a little temple looking to both sides.

TELETUBBIES HILL

How to get around nusa penida.

The only way to get around Nusa Penida is by car or by motorbike. We would recommend hiring a private driver as he will know the exact way and all the secret paths. 

We found motorbikes a little dangerous as Nusa Penida does not have proper roads and they are all very bumpy. In fact, we saw two accidents of tourists that were driving bikes. And it is also very easy to get lost and Google Maps is not the most reliable, so hiring a private driver for the day is more comfortable and safer.

WHERE TO STAY ON NUSA PENIDA

We stayed at La Roja Bungalows while visiting Nusa Penida. This place was exactly what we had imagined before coming to Nusa Penida. It is the perfect place to organize a floating breakfast in their pool and you can ask them to arrange it for you for an extra cost.

If you want to stay at a luxurious hotel for an affordable price, we may suggest Adiwana at Nusa Penida. Other well reviewed hotels include Semabu Hills Hotel , Ocean Terrace Suites , and Coco Resort Penida . You can also find decent options on AirBnB depending on your preferences.

WHERE TO EAT

It may be a little difficult to find healthy options in Nusa Penida as it is quite remote compared to Bali. These are some of the restaurants we found on the island where they served vegetarian options, smoothie bowls and traditional food. Some of our favorites included:

  • Penida Kekinian
  • Vegan Soul Kitchen
  • The Gallery Nusa Penida
  • Penida Espresso

Don’t be afraid to try local restaurants, or “warungs.” We tried some on our way to the different places and they were all very kind and helped us veganize our menus.

17 Jun Nusa Penida Travel Guide: Perfect for Budget and Solo Travelers!

Nusa Pendia

Over the years as pictures of the curved spine of Kelingking Beach have gone viral online, Nusa Penida has become a main attraction to visiting Indonesia. A part of a a trio of smallers islands, Nusa Pendia sits at the southeast coast of the main island of Bali.  Here you will find less Western restaurants, a much quieter atmosphere, some untouched wilderness, and the iconic, epic coastlines! 

In this travel guide you can find all the information needed to plan your own trip:

Ways to Experience Nusa Penida

A trip to Nusa Penida can be experienced in different ways. For most people, visiting Nusa Penida means a taking a guided day trip tour from Bali. However, it’s becoming increasingly popular to go to Nusa Penida on your own, stay a few days and explore at your leisure time. There are pros and cons to both options and the way in which you decide to visit Nusa Penida greatly depends on any time limitations and how you like to travel. 

Visiting On Your Own

Flexible planning, you’re on your own time

More planning involved on your part

Need to arrange getting to Nusa Penida

Must rent a motorbike or hire a driver 

Ability to stay several days and explore the island in its entirety and experience a quiet paradise 

Opportunity to explore many beautiful places, Nusa Penida is known for Kelingking Beach but there’s so much more

Visiting on a Tour

Structured day, possibly with a group depending on the tour

Usually package deal, everything planned for you 

Transportation to the island usually included

Transportation on the island included

Tours are typically day tours from Bali without the option of staying on Nusa Penida

Tours usually only take you to the popular spots. And even if given the ability to choose where to go, your options are limited in just one day because of how far locations are from one another

In terms of price comparison, it depends. Exploring for one day on your own, could very well be much cheaper than a day tour package (depending on the tour). However, if you stay a few days, obviously the costs go up but you’re getting more experiences than a day tour.

As I mentioned, there are pros and cons to both, so choose whichever suits you best! Either way there’s no doubt you will enjoy this majestic island. 

Booking a Day Trip Tour to Nusa Penida

A day trip can be taken on your own to the island, however with a shorter amount of time an organized tour may be more worth it. 

Many days tours are offered by street vendors and hotels in Bali. However, you can also book ahead of time online. Below are some great options on GetYourGuide

Getting to and from Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida is small island close to the mainland of Bali; to get there it is about a 30 minute boat ride from Sanur Harbor (on Bali). However, it can also be accessed from Nusa Lembongan or from Lombok. The most popular way is from Bali though.

Booking a Boat Ticket to Nusa Penida from Bali

*If you are taking a tour to Nusa Penida, boat transportation is usually included, but double check. 

Securing a boat ticket to Nusa Penida can be done in many ways. Some hotels will help you arrange it, which may include pick up from the hotel and the boat to Nusa Penida.

You can also book online at 12Go  or Klook , both of which are very reliable for all modes of transportation. Keep in mind, if you do book online, this should be done at least a day in advance. The longer you wait, the price usually goes up.

The other option is the old school way, booking from a vendor. There are many vendors on the streets within Bali who will provide transportation and tours to Nusa Penida. Or you can wing it, and show up to Sanur Harbor and buy your ticket from there. Boats and ferries leave everyday, I would just recommend showing up early. 

Whichever way you buy your ticket though, I recommend comparing prices across the board and weighing your options. Some ways of booking may be more expensive than others, however, some may include transportation to Sanur Harbor.

What I did:

I booked a ticket for a speedboat online at Klook , the day before, which was 165,000 IDR (~$12 USD). I actually ended up missing my boat due to oversleeping and not reading the fine print about arriving early, but they just stuck me on the next boat leaving at no extra cost, so no problem. Don’t panic if this happens to you!

Getting to Nusa Penida

In summary..

Ways to Book a Boat Ticket to Nusa Penida:

  • At your hotel
  • From a street vendor
  • Online at 12Go or Klook 

Tips When Booking:

  • Compare prices
  • Haggle/bargain if you can
  • Consider the pros and cons and price differences of booking a ticket that includes transportation to the harbor vs. getting there on your own
  • Book as early as possible to get a better price
  • Check your ticket for the time you’re supposed to arrive at the harbor

Getting to Sanur Harbor

Most speedboats and ferries to Nusa Penida will leave from Sanur Harbor. When purchasing your ticket, I would double check that this is your departure point. After doing so, I would check Google Maps to see how far away you are from Sanur Harbor, because given its location and Bali traffic, it might take you up to 45 minutes drive to get there. This detail is important to planning your arrival time so you don’t miss your boat (like me lol!).

If you’re taking a tour, most likely it will provide hotel pickup to the harbor, therefore you will not need to worry about the logistics of getting there. Make sure this is the case though.

If you are not on a tour, the cheapest way to reach Sanur Harbor is using the GoJek or Grab   app. You can also take a taxi, this is a good option to support locals. 

When you arrive at Sanur Harbor, there’s a small fee for drivers to enter the parking lot, to avoid this fee just have them drop you off outside of it and walk in. Be sure to arrive early at the harbor before your boat leaves. And don’t worry if you missed breakfast, there’s a lot of places to buy food and drink at the harbor!

tips trip ke nusa penida

Arriving at Nusa Penida

After about 30 minutes on a speedboat, you will arrive at Nusa Penida. If you’re on a tour, a vehicle will be waiting for you. 

Otherwise, unless you have prior arrangements, at the harbor you can bargain with someone to rent a motorbike or catch a ride to your hotel or next destination. Don’t worry about no one being there, if anything its overwhelming how many people bombard you with offers. I wasn’t ready for this, so keep a cool head, b e prepared to be rushed and given higher prices,  and use your haggling skills! 

If you decide pay a driver, depending on where your hotel or hostel is on Nusa Penida, it’s about 100,000 IDR (~$7 USD) to get there with one of the drivers from the port.  (2019 price)

From Nusa Penida Back to Bali

If you booked a tour, your transportation back will obviously be covered. However, if not you simply go about it the same way you did to get there. Hotels on Nusa Penida will have information about returning back to Bali, or you can book online on 12Go .

Sanur Harbor to Nusa Penida

Transportation on the island

How to get around Nusa Penida is a detail I did not consider before coming and a lot of people don’t. Unlike Bali there are no rideshares, public transportation, or taxis. It’s either you rent a motorbike or car yourself, or you have a private driver.

Renting a motorbike

Renting a motorbike on Nusa Penida is a popular option, especially for backpackers on a budget staying a few days. But although it’s a cheap option, there is one thing to consider: the roads on Nusa Penida are notorious for being really, really bad. There are tons of potholes and many portions of the road are just torn up gravel, most of which are up and down steep hills and curvy roads. 

I know many people think they’re invincible, but seriously driving a motorbike in Nusa Penida is only for experienced drivers. If you do opt to rent a motorbike, be extremely cautious, wear a helmet, and have travel insurance –  I saw a lot  of accidents.

To rent a motorbike, you can do so from your accommodation, from a vendor, from the harbor when you arrive OR online here . Motorbikes should be around 75,000 IDR ($5 USD) per day.

tips trip ke nusa penida

Renting a motorbike with a driver

When I visited Nusa Penida, I had never driven a motorbike in my life. When I heard about the roads, I knew it would be really stupid to try on my own. Now after seeing those roads, I know I could have gotten really hurt, even if I did know how to drive.

But being on a budget, I didn’t want to break the bank getting a private car to go around the island by myself, so I actually paid someone working at my hostel to drive me around on their motorbike. It was a lot of fun and I got to witness beautiful views without the stress of driving myself. 

I paid 300,000 IDR (~$20 USD) per day. To do this, just ask your hotel or hostel if they offer the service, if not they most likely will know someone to call.

Renting a private car with a driver

If you’re not traveling alone, renting a private car with a driver is a really good option because it’s safer than a motorbike and you can split the price with your fellow travelers. When you arrive at the port of Nusa Penida, you can hire a driver there, just by asking one of the men. You can also book from your hotel/hostel, or online at Klook or GetYourGuide . Renting a private car with driver is around 500,000 IDR (~$35 USD) per day (2019 price) .

Places to See on Nusa Penida

On the west coast of nusa penida:, 1. kelingking beach.

Kelingking Beach Nusa Penida

Photos of this unique, curved coastline is what has started to draw more and more people to Nusa Penida; it’s probably the most visited part of the island! And even if you’ve already seen a thousand photos online, it’s unreal to personally stand in front of the T-Rex shaped cliff, and watch the blue waves roll into the rock face.

Parking 5,000 IDR (~$0.40 USD) and entrance fee 10,000 IDR (~$0.80 USD) (Unless you’re driving yourself on a motorbike, you usually won’t have to pay this).

Arrive early morning if you want to miss the crowd.

2. Angel's Billabong

Angels Billabong Bali Nusa Penida

Most people describe Angel’s billabong as a natural infinity pool because when it’s low tide, it sits above the ocean water and you’re able to swim there. If you’re like me and didn’t know this, you might end up there at high tide! You won’t be able to swim, but you will see how clear the water is and you’ll witness some massive waves coming in and hitting the rock face!

Cost | Parking 5,000 IDR (~$0.40 USD) – you only pay once for Angel’s Billabong, Broken Beach, and Manta Bay Viewpoint

Tip | if you want to swim here, you need to come at low tide. ask the locals when this is, 3. broken beach.

tips trip ke nusa penida

Walking distance from Angel’s Billabong is Broken Beach. This cove is surrounded by cliffs that eventually form a natural bridge. Although you are not able to go down to the beach, the overlook is still a sweet spot. Watching the waves roll in through the opening in the wall was mesmerizing.

Parking 5,000 IDR (~$0.40 USD) – you only pay once for Angel’s Billabong, Broken Beach, and Manta Bay Viewpoint  

To really get the full experience, make sure and walk around the cove and over the natural bridge!

4. Manta Bay Viewpoint

Manta Bay Viewpoint Nusa Penida Bali

Manta Bay is just on the other side of Broken Beach. Sometimes, you are able to look down and see the magnificent manta ray swimming below. When I visited, I wasn’t able to see any because there were so many waves, but because it’s so close to Broken Beach, its worth it to check and see!

Parking 5,000 IDR (~$0.40 USD) – you only pay once for Angel’s Billabong, Broken Beach, and Manta Bay Viewpoint

Go at low tide to have a better chance of spotting a manta ray!

On the East Side of Nusa Penida:

5. pura goa giri putri cave.

tips trip ke nusa penida

On my way to the East Coast of Nusa Penida, I stopped at Pura Goa Putri Cave which is a Hindu Temple inside a cave! In order to enter, you have to crawl through a small opening. Once inside the ceiling opens up and you follow a pathway leading to multiple prayers sights and then come out the back of the cave. It’s really so interesting!

20,000 IDR (~$1.50 USD)

Bring a sarong if you can, as you have to cover your knees to enter a Hindu temple. However, if you don’t have one, they do offer some at the temple for you to borrow.

6. Diamond Beach

Diamond Beach Nusa Penida Bali

Diamond beach, like Kelingking beach, has started to really blow up on social media. And for good reason! This beach is paradise, but (when I visited) without the crowds.

5,000 IDR (~$0.40 USD) for parking and 10,000 IDR (~$0.80 USD) entrance – this covers Diamond Beach and Atuh Beach

When going down to the beach, be careful on the stairs as they become more narrow.

7. Atuh Beach

tips trip ke nusa penida

Atuh Beach is the most “commercial” of the beaches meaning it has plenty of lounge chairs and local food vendors or warungs. I ate a delicious lunch here with an incredible view of crystal clear water. Also, if you buy food or drink, they offer you a chair for free to lounge in later! 

5,000 IDR (~$0.40 USD) for parking and 10,000 IDR (~$0.80 USD) entrance – this covers Diamond Beach and Atuh Beach  

Many people who look up photos of Atuh Beach see photos of Sebele beach, which has been mistakenly called Atuh Beach. Sebele beach is actually on the other side; I did not know this when I visited; I definitely need to go back to see that beach too!

8. Thousand Island (Pulau Seribu) Viewpoint

Thousand Island Viewpoint Nusa Penida Bali

This viewpoint was probably my favorite! There was no one there except for a few people passing through, so I got to sit and enjoy the view for awhile without any disturbance. And that’s really what you need to take in this view, because it’s absolutely magnificent!

5,000 IDR (~$0.40 USD) to park and 10,000 IDR (~$0.80 USD) for entrance – this covers Thousand Island Viewpoint and Rumah Pohon Treehouse  

This place is interchangeably called Thousand Island Viewpoint or Pulau Seribu; it’s the same place!

9. Rumah Pohon Treehouse

tips trip ke nusa penida

The Rumah Pohon Treehouse is another instagram phenomena. Just next to the Thousand Island Viewpoint, the treehouse offers another perspective of the cliff and is a picture perfect scene.  

*I was definitely under the impression the treehouse was just a cute place for pictures, etc. however you can actually book to stay there! Keep in mind, it is very simple accommodation, just a mattress from what I’ve heard, so you’re really just paying for the view. 

5,000 IDR (~$0.40 USD) to park and 10,000 IDR (~$0.80 USD) for entrance – this covers Thousand Island Viewpoint and Rumah Pohon Treehouse

Keep going past the treehouse, up the hill for another lookout!

Other Places to See on Nusa Penida

These places are a little more off the beaten path, and I never got to chance to visit myself. Next time!

Snorkeling and Diving at Nusa Penida

Manta point.

Although there are several spots for snorkeling and diving off the coast of Nusa Penida, the most famous is Manta Point. Manta Point is where tons of manta rays come to feed (naturally, not fed by humans). So although it is not guaranteed you will see any, there is still a big chance you will see many gigantic, manta rays!

tips trip ke nusa penida

When I went snorkeling here, I was actually sea sick from the boat. But I wanted to see these beautiful creatures so badly I jumped in the water anyways. And I’m so happy I did. My mind was absolutely blown! Manta rays surrounded me. They glided through the water so gracefully, the movement of their body portraying them as if they were flying. And they’re not shy at all either; many times they would swim right at me, and I had to dodge their gigantic body. Manta rays are not dangerous at all, however, to touch them you risk damaging their skin.

Snorkeling with Manta Rays Nusa Penida

Despite the sea sickness, this was one of the most magical moments of my life and I highly recommend anyone traveling to Nusa Penida do it. If you’re taking a day trip, it’s possible to book a tour that includes this. However, if not you can book with a dive company on the island.

Snorkeling with Manta Rays Nusa Penida Bali

I booked my snorkeling tour through Mambo Dive Resort and thoroughly enjoyed snorkeling with them. They were a lot of fun, very respectful of nature, informative, and it was reasonably price at 350,000 IDR (~$25 USD). We went to two snorkeling places, Manta Point and a spot to see coral (either Gamat or Crystal Bay). There are some snorkeling companies that will offer 4 or so snorkeling points, but I personally recommend only doing two (one being Manta Point) so you can spend more time at Manta Point.

Other snorkeling spots at Nusa Penida besides Manta Point:

Crystal bay, toyapakeh wall point, buddha temple, where to stay on nusa penida.

If you’ve decided there’s so much to see on Nusa Penida and you would like to take your time and explore, there are plenty of accommodation options on this small island, from budget to luxury.

If you’re a solo traveler and looking to save some money, hostels are the way to go. When it comes to hostels, Nusa Penida has quite a few for such a small island. And they’re definitely budget friendly! Hostels range from $5-15 USD, and some even have a pool .

When I visited Nusa Penida I stayed at Packer Box Hostel , which was simple, but clean and comfortable and I met some amazing people there!

View this post on Instagram A post shared by The Packer Box (@thepackerbox) on Aug 11, 2019 at 9:34pm PDT

If you’re traveling as a group of 2, private rooms can also be a really cheap option to split. Many of the hostels on Nusa Penida offer private rooms that are just as much as a dorm option at another hostel. On Hostelworld private rooms range from $15 – 40 USD.

Nusa Penida has a number of resort hotels featuring spas, pools, a tropical breakfast, and all for affordable prices. Some highly rated ones are Blue Harbor Beachfront Villas & Resto , Ocean Terrace Suite and Spa , Semabu Hills Hotel , and Akusara Jungle Resort . Most are around $50 USD but reaching no more than $150 USD.

Tip When Booking Accommodation on Nusa Penida:

While you get excited about beautiful places and are mind blown by how cheap they are, don’t forget to check the location. Nusa Penida is a small island, but it takes a very long time to get places. So weigh the pros and cons of accommodation options and proximity to where you want to visit. 

Best Time to Visit Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida can be explored at any point in the year! However, it’s best May to September when it’s almost guaranteed dry weather.

More Resources for Your Trip to Indonesia

Planning your own trip? Here’s some resources I used to book and coordinate my itinerary through Thailand along with some recommendations:

If you’re a budget traveler or looking for an easy way to meet others,  Hostelworld is the best place to search. Below are some of my recommendations, click to search for availability ! 

  • Canguu: The Farm Hostel
  • Ubud: Puri Garden Hotel & Hostel OR The Wayan House OR Ubud Rice Field House
  • Nusa Penida: Packer Box Hostel OR Nuansa Penida Hostel
  • Seminyak: My Capsule Bali
  • Kuta (Lombok): Pipes Hostel
  • Gili Air: H20 Yoga & Meditartion Center OR Tipsea Turtle
  • Gili Trawangan: Atlas Gili

Booking.com is the way to go when search for hotels in Indonesia because they typically offer free cancellation with plenty of affordable to more luxurious stays – also for cheap!

Flights to Indonesia are typically cheapest to Jakarta but shouldn’t be too much more directly to Bali/Denpasar. I flew to Singapore and then flew to Bali which is also a good option. Domestic flights within Indonesia can be more or less  affordable especially if traveling light. There are ferry options, but the waters between island can be pretty wild so if you can, I recommend flying. To find the best deal & prices I recommend using Skyscanner . 

BUSES/Ferries/& more

The easiest ways to search for ways to get around Indonesia are with  12GoAsia  and Klook . Both platforms show various options (ferries, buses, flights, etc.) so you can compare option and prices in English.   Check 12GoAsia out here and check out Klook here

Travel insurance is a must for every trip to ensure you’re covered in unexpected situations. My go to travel insurance is always WorldNomads which is made for backpackers. You can search for coverage here . 

If you’re a digital nomad looking for travel medical emergency insurance, I also suggest Safety Wing . 

Tours & Experiences

There’s a lot of free thing to do in Indonesia and/or experiences you can do on your own. I always recommend checking blog posts for inspiration. If you’re interested in tours and experiences though like snorkeling, cooking classes & more then I most recommend  Klook  and GetYourGuide for Indonesia.

One Day in Nusa Penida – The Perfect Self-Guided Itinerary

  • Post author: Marlou
  • Post published: October 8, 2023
  • Post category: Indonesia / Southeast Asia

Nusa Penida is a small island off the coast of Bali, Indonesia . It’s home to the famous Kelingking beach, also known as T-Rex beach or bay. Many people join a tour from Bali, but if you are comfortable driving a motorbike, you can easily do it yourself too. If you only have one day in Nusa Penida, follow the itinerary below and visit all the highlights in only one day. 

This itinerary is also perfect for those of you who have more time to spend in Nusa Penida. That means you can take it slower and maybe at a snorkeling tour to your itinerary too.

Table of Contents - One Day in Nusa Penida: The perfect self-guided itinerary

  • How to get to Nusa Penida

Where to stay on Nusa Penida

Where to eat on nusa penida, how to get around nusa penida, swimming at nusa penida, diamond beach, stop 2: tembeling beach and forest, stop 3: kelingking beach, stop 4: broken beach and angels billabong, stop 5: crystal bay, stop 6: garmat bay, stop 7: sunset.

Tip: Even though it’s technically possible to do this itinerary from Bali, it’s really rushed and you won’t have much time to enjoy each place. It’s a pretty full itinerary for one day, and you don’t want to be stressing about being able to catch the boat back to Bali.

How to get to Nusa Pendia

Fast boats leave throughout the day from Bali’s Sanur Port , which is the most common way of getting there. Prices vary amongst agencies, the cheapest I found was 150.000 Rp. one way (about € 9/$9.50) with Angels Billabong and Idola. You can also take the public slower boat from Padangbai , which is only 31.000 Rp (less than 2 EUR/USD). This is a great option if you’re coming from Sidemen or Amed for example. If you need to take a Grab/Gojek from Sanur in order to get here, I wouldn’t worry about it because it’ll work out the same price (for 2 people) and it’s a lot more hassle. There are fast boats to and from Lombok and the Gili Islands too. Semaya One is the cheapest with 250,000 Rp. Note that Nusa Penida has 3 different ports, so pay attention to this when you pick your boat/accommodation. Starfish and Angels Billabong serve the Toya Pakeh port, Idola and the public ferry Sampalan and Semaya One has it’s own pier close to the Sampalan port. Toya Pakeh and Sampalan ports are a 15-20 minute motorbike ride away from each other.

I recommend staying in one of the port areas if you are only going to be here for one day. We stayed at D’Kubon , which was really good value for money. It’s also conveniently located right in front of the Semaya One pier (and walking distance from Sampalan). They have a small pool and a simple breakfast is included. The Tropical Brew café in front is owned by the owner’s son and makes delicious smoothie bowls and coffees. 

Besides Tropical Brew for smoothie bowls and coffee, Nemu Kitchen is the one and only place to go. If you’re staying at D’Kubon Palace, it’s literally just down the road. They have a very wide variety of different cuisines and everything is just delicious. And very reasonably priced. The staff is also super friendly and the whole atmosphere is just great. They have a cocktail happy hour in the evening too, and the cocktails are as good as their food.

The only option to get around Nusa Penida yourself is by renting a motorbike . It’s not possible to rent a car as a tourist, only motorbikes. You can rent one for as little as 70.000-80.000 Rp. a day (4-5 EUR/USD. Make sure to explicitly ask for helmets, as they don’t always give them to you. We rented our bike for 70,000 Rp. a day at Sampalan harbor. Rent the bike the day you arrive, so you can start early tomorrow. If you’re not comfortable driving a motorbike, it’s best to join a tour or hire a car and driver for the day. The roads are not in great condition and they are quite narrow. With the many curves in the road, the potholes, and the huge amount of big cars on the road, driving becomes a challenge.

Nusa Penida’s beaches are more for taking pictures than swimming. The currents here are incredibly strong and dangerous. The most famous beaches Kelingking and Diamond Beach are NOT recommended for swimming. If you are a very confident swimmer and you are used to swimming in strong currents, you could get away with it. But many people get into the water overly confident and get into trouble. We spent quite some time on the island and saw many people nearly drown. Some managed to get out themselves, others had to be rescued. I don’t want to think about the amount of people who weren’t so lucky and drowned here. So be very careful here and don’t think it won’t happen to you, that’s what those other people thought too. 

There are some places on the island that are better suited for swimming if the tides allow. I will indicate those in the itinerary below. However, if your main idea is to chill on a beach and to go swimming and snorkeling, the Gili Islands are better suited for you.

One day in Nusa Penida itinerary

Leave your hotel early in the morning, to make the most out of your day. If you didn’t rent a motorbike yet, do so the moment they open. Note that in order to visit all locations on the map below, you’ll need about 4 hours of driving time. If you want to spend an hour in each place too, it’s going to be a 10-hour day. If this sounds like a bit too much for you, you can easily spread this itinerary over 1.5 or 2 days and go on a more relaxed pace.

It’s a circular route, so you can start from anywhere. If you want to see the sunrise and/or sunset, it’s best to start with Diamond Beach and go clockwise.

Stop 1: Diamond Beach and Atuh Beach

Diamond Beach is prettiest in the morning, as the sun hits the beach and the water. The colors are at their best early in the day. Another plus is that there are not so many people yet. This is the only beach on the island for which you need to pay entry in addition to parking (at the time of writing). Parking is 5,000 Rp per bike and the entry is 25,000 per person. It’s the same way to both Diamond Beach and Atuh Beach, the entrance is for both beaches. No need to pay again.

It’s only possible to go down to Diamond Beach when the tide is low. If the tide is at its highest, the beach disappears. But if the tide is low enough, it’s possible to make your way down. You do need to go down very narrow and busy stairs. It’s already quite difficult for people to pass each other and unfortunately, Instagram has made the top part of the stairs a photo hotspot. So many people want to take their picture here, blocking the way for people wanting to go up and down. Especially later in the day. At the lower part of the stairs, you’ll need to use a rope to help you get down and back up, as the steps here are too eroded to just walk. It’s not so difficult, but some people get nervous and need to take their time, causing a queue here.

So by going early you can avoid all of this and take your picture on the stairs without blocking others if you want to. There are plenty of other nice viewpoints on the cliff where you can take pictures too.

Diamond beach, Nusa Penida

Atuh beach is the beach right next to Diamond Beach. The beach you see on your left hand side when you make your way to the beaches.

Contrary to Diamond Beach, Atuh is actually nicer at high tide as the water covers all the rocks that are in front of the beach. The stairs going down to Atuh are wider and in a better state than the stairs to Diamond Beach, making it a lot easier to visit this beach. 

Atuh is one of the few beaches on Nusa Penida that is good for swimming. The rock formations in front break most of the waves, so the current is not so strong here. If the tide is low the water is too far back to swim. But at higher tide, Atuh provides a nice swimming spot.  Still, be careful of course, and only enter the water if you know how to swim.

tips trip ke nusa penida

This part is also home to the famous treehouse . One of the many Instagram hotspots of Nusa Penida. There is also a really nice viewpoint on the cliff between Atuh and Diamond Beach, from where you can occasionally see turtles and manta’s swimming below. Especially on the side of Atuh Beach. 

The next stop on this itinerary is Tembeling Beach and Forest. As the name already indicates, you’re passing a forest, which leads to a small beach. The best part of Tembeling is it’s fresh waterhole though. It’s only small, so for this spot too: the earlier the better.

Note that you’ll need to park your bike on the main road already, not where I put the pin on the map. I think that if you really insist they will let you pass and drive on your own, but the road is very narrow, there are some steep parts and it’s generally in really bad condition. So the guys at the parking will tell you it’s not possible to drive down, and you’ll either need to walk or take one of their motor taxi’s down. We walked, and it took us about half an hour. 

The fresh waterhole at Tembeling Beach and Forest

Kelingking Beach is the most iconic of Nusa Penida’s beaches. It’s the picture that pops up everywhere when you search for Nusa Penida. This beach is actually best enjoyed from above, especially if you only have one day to explore Nusa Penida. Getting down is very tricky. If you thought Diamond Beach was challenging, it’s better to not attempt to go down to this beach. Also, if you only have one day and you want to visit all the places that I mentioned here, you probably won’t have enough time to go down this one. 

If you do decide to go down, do so very carefully. The first part is fine, the steps are well carved and it’s not so difficult. But then, the stairs turn toward the right and slowly disappear. The steps become less and less clear until they completely disappear and you’re climbing down rocks. Do consider wearing sneakers if you’re planning on going down. Otherwise, go barefoot. It’s a long, challenging, and crowded way down, but once you’re down the beach is really pretty. But unfortunately not suited for swimming. Again, if you’re super confident swimming in these kinds of waters you’ll be fine, but if not please don’t try. It’s not worth the risk. 

Kelingking Beach is the most iconic beach of Nusa Penida

Broken Beach is a beach with a beautiful arch which you an cross. It provides really nice views, but it’s not possible to go down to this beach. If you want to swim, you can do so at Angel’s Billabong, which is a natural infinity pool. It is only safe to swim here during low tide, however. At high tide, waves crash into the pool and leave with so much force, that they can drag you out. So only swim here at low tide and stay a safe distance from the edge of the pool. Waves can be unpredictable, even at low tide.

Broken Beach, Nusa Penida

Crystal Bay is the easiest to get to of all the places in this itinerary. It’s not the nicest beach, as it’s quite small and super commercial. It is however the best place to have lunch on the beach, as there are plenty of warungs here. It’s also one of the few places where you can swim at Nusa Penida. So if you want something to eat or drink and go for a swim, this is your stop. If not, I’d say it’s better to spend some more time at the other places in this itinerary and skip Crystal Bay.

Crystal Bay, Nusa Penida

If you didn’t like the sound of Crystal Bay, but do have time for an extra stop, head to Garmat Bay instead. This beach is a lot more natural. And if the tide is high enough, you can swim here. It’s really good for snorkeling actually! But, it’s only possible to enter the water from the beach at high tide. At low tide the water pulls back so far and the corals are exposed. So you’d have to walk over the living corals to get to the water, damaging them at the very least, and possibly killing them. I’ve seen people do it, but please don’t. Just because other people do it, doesn’t mean it’s ok. They might not know, or don’t care. But you’d damage the very thing you’re so excited to see.

Garmat Bay is a lot more natural than Crystal Bay

So I didn’t mark this one, as it kind of depends on where on the island you are at the time of sunset. Garmat Bay doesn’t have a nice view for sunset, it gets blocked by rocks. But you can watch the sunset from the Broken Beach area, or find a nice beach bar between Toya Pakeh Harbor and Sampalan Harbor. It might not have the perfect view of the sun dropping behind the water, but you’ll find a nice place to enjoy the sunset, with Bali as a backdrop.

This was: One Day in Nusa Penida – The perfect self-guided itinerary

If you have more time than just one day to spend on Nusa Penida, I do recommend spreading the itinerary over 2 days. This gives you some extra time to enjoy the beaches as some are a little challenging to get to. This also allows you to go down to Diamond Beach and Kelingking Beach without feeling too rushed. 

Snorkeling with manta rays is a popular thing to do in Nusa Penida, which I didn’t include in this itinerary. Because I have to say, I can’t really recommend it. We only heard positive things about it, but when we got there, it was just sooo crowded! And you only get 15 minutes to snorkel with them. So it’s kind of like, get in, get some footage, and get out. It was definitely not the experience I wanted or expected, as there was no time or space to really observe these beautiful animals and enjoy their presence. There are too many people around and it all feels a bit stressful.

There are some diving schools on the island though, so if you really want to go, I recommend talking to them to see if they can offer you a better experience. They might give you more time and maybe a different time of day too. Or, you could opt for a snorkeling tour that doesn’t include Manta Point and enjoy the beautiful corals and fish around the island. We actually enjoyed the corals a lot more than the manta’s.

3. Selalu Sedia Uang Tunai

Ketika berada di Nusa Penida, ada baiknya Anda selalu membawa uang tunai. Tidak semua destinasi wisata di sana menyediakan fasilitas ATM. Terkadang letaknya cukup jauh untuk dijangkau. Jadi selalu kantongi uang tunai, ya.

Nusa Penida Trip – 21 Things to Know Before You Go

Should you include a Nusa Penida trip in your Bali itinerary? There are plenty of great reasons to go to this little island — but there are also lots of reasons you might want to avoid it! Is a trip to Nusa Penida right for you? We’ve got your answer below!

What’s in our Guide to Visiting Nusa Penida?

1. 4 Reasons to Visit Nusa Penida 2. 5 Reasons to Avoid It 3. Planning Your Trip 4. How to Get There 5. What to Expect on the Island

The first time we went to Nusa Penida, in 2015, it was a real escape from the tourist crowds of Ubud.

Gone was the bumper to bumper traffic and the buzz of a million motorbikes. Gone was the endless stream of sightseers and spiritual seekers .

On Nusa Penida, we found rural tranquility and a local community which had not yet been overrun by the steamroller of the Indonesian tourism industry.

nusa penida trip

Unfortunately, the day we arrived, Stephen came down with a terrible fever and we had to rush back to Bali for medical care. It turned out that we both had dengue — but that’s a story for another day.

Fast forward to this year, when we made a return trip to Nusa Penida, hoping to immerse ourselves in the island magic that we had barely tasted on our first trip.

The intervening years have not been kind to Nusa Penida.

Day tourists now arrive in droves and hordes of independent travellers spend a few nights there. Nusa Penida is now a confirmed stop on the well beaten track.

But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its charms. You just need to know what you’re getting into before you go.

Read on to discover the 21 Things You Need to Know Before Planning a Nusa Penida Trip.

4 Reasons to Visit Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida’s rise to full-blown tourist destination is no mystery. With incredible vistas along its southern shores, beautiful beaches to the west, and exceptional snorkelling and diving opportunities all around, Nusa Penida packs a lot into a little space.

Here are a few of the reasons people go:

1. The most beautiful beach on Earth

nusa penida tour

We weren’t expecting much from our one day tour on Nusa Penida — and then we got to Kelingking Beach (AKA Klungkung or Secret Point Beach). After an uncomfortable hour on a winding, bumpy road, we found ourselves at the top of a dizzying cliff, hundreds of metres above a perfect crescent of golden sand. We thought we could only admire her from afar… until our guide pointed to the trail.

The treacherous path clings to the cliffside and delivers only the most intrepid / stupid travellers to the sandy shores below.

Once I reached the bottom, the feeling of triumph at having survived the descent, mixed with the stunning beauty, literally took my breath away. If you love beaches and a physical challenge, set aside a whole day just to hang out at Kelingking Beach.

It’s the most beautiful beach on which we’ve ever left our footprints.

2. Meet the friendly islanders

Indonesian people are extremely friendly, but on Nusa Penida, they embody an island vibe that makes them even more approachable. Especially if you walk (most tourists zoom by on motorbikes), children run out to greet you and practice whatever English they can manage.

Adults wave and smile or might beckon you over for a chat, even if they don’t speak English. If you learn a couple of phrases in Bahasa, like “apa kabar / how are you” and “baik baik saja / fine” you will earn huge smiles all around.

3. Do nothing for a few days

nusa penida trip

If you want to sit in a secluded spot staring out to sea for a few days, Nusa Penida is ideal! Guest houses are hidden away around the island in quiet spaces, making it easy to design your own private retreat.

Our bungalow at Petak Cottage overlooked the north shore of the island, giving us an incredible view of Mount Batur (while it was erupting).

Find Your Nusa Penida Accommodation →

We spent most of our four days on the island just sitting on our deck and marvelling at the power and beauty of the natural world.

4. Snorkelling and SCUBA with Manta Rays

Perhaps the biggest reason for a trip to Nusa Penida is Manta Ray Point, where you can swim with these incredible sea creatures. The small group of islands here is often cited as one of the best dive spots in the world.

More Nusa Penida Tours → That may be true, but there is a major downside. Because of lack of regulation, the popular spots are often packed with dive boats, so you won’t avoid the tourist crowds underwater, either.

Also, tonnes of garbage wash onto the island from Java and other spots all around the ocean. Depending upon the tides and the time of year, the experience can be as depressing as it is enthralling.

(Related: Don’t be surprised if your Penida snorkelling photos end up like these ) →

Of course, we never recommend animal attractions that involve too many people crowding around wild animals, as the manta dives certainly do. Tourists and tourist boats also damage the coral here, so…

…maybe water sports aren’t a great reason to visit Nusa Penida after all!

4 Reasons to avoid Nusa Penida

1. you only have a short time in bali.

If you’re only in Bali for a week or two, we recommend escaping to one of the less touristed areas of the main island, rather than spending your valuable time going to Nusa Penida.

Though the distances look short on the map, the drive to Sanur or Padangbai, where the ferries depart, can take hours in the dense Bali traffic. Plus, the fast boat ride is fairly unpleasant and if the weather is bad, or it can be cancelled or take hours.

All in all, the hassle of getting to Nusa Penida is only worth it if you are not in a rush.

Instead of spending all day in cars and boats, we suggest you get up with the sun and stretch your legs on a volcano! The Mount Batur sunrise trek is a Bali classic.

2. You’ve never driven a motorbike before

Unlike most of Bali, there is no ojek, Go-Jek, Grab, Uber, or taxi service available on Nusa Penida. That means, the only reasonable way to get around the island is by driving a motorbike.

If you’ve never driven one before, the Nusa Penida roads are not the place to learn. Though there are a few good paved stretches, roads to the big attractions are a disaster, with giant potholes filled with loose sand and rocks. They are also rammed with dozens of SUVs transporting day trippers back and forth.

nusa penida tour

Rental motorbikes are in various states of disrepair, so if you do rent, be sure to check that you have working brakes, mirrors, and tires with some grip left. You will need it all on the disastrous roads!

And you don’t have a license

Also, you officially need a license to drive a motorbike on Nusa Penida. You can bring an International Driving License from home, combined with your regular license, or you can get a temporary tourist license at an office in Denpasar on Bali.

If the police catch you without a license, you will probably have to pay a “fine”. If you get injured, driving without a license will invalidate your travel insurance, and you’ll have to pay for your own medical care.

Having said that, first-time drivers rent motorbikes on Nusa Penida all the time and live to tell the tale — though many of them go away with scratches and bruises or worse.

Since we can’t drive motorbikes, we were stuck seeing only what was in walking distance or paying the hefty fee for a private driver. Because of this, we feel like we didn’t really get to experience the island like we otherwise would have.

So if you’re not a great motorbike driver, think twice before booking your Nusa Penida trip.

3. You’re looking for a truly off-the-beaten-track destination

Nusa Penida is firmly on the Bali tourist trail and, though it’s not quite as overrun as the Gili Islands yet, it won’t be long! If you’re hoping to find complete seclusion and an escape from touristy Bali, head to Bali’s northern or eastern shores instead.

If you’re looking to get away from tourists for a day, this Bali village cycling tour in Kintamani might be just right.

nusa penida tour

4. You’re on a budget

Everything about a trip to Nusa Penida is expensive. The fast boats charge as much as they can get from you, transfers to your hotel will cost $10-20, and your accommodation will be at least 30% more than on Bali. Motorbike rental can climb up to $20/day too and hiring a car and driver costs from $70-100.

If you’re on a budget, stay away from Nusa Penida. A trip to the Gili Islands or Lombok will be more exciting and much more cost-effective.

5. You need to get some work done

In most places on Nusa Penida, the internet is bad. Like, not just slow, but terrible. At times, you’ll be lucky if you can even load a Google search results page. At other times, there is zero connection.

If you plan to use your LTE SIM card for internet connection, think again. With Telkomsel, we were only able to get 3G on our phones and that was slower than the slow WiFi. If you need to work online, don’t go to Nusa Penida.

We did manage to find fast WiFi at two places on the island:

  • Penida Espresso had great WiFi and delicious smoothie bowls, too.
  • SD Point has fast WiFi and a nice spot to relax on the beach. But just order a drink, the food was terrible as was the service.

Planning Your Trip

Should you do a one-day trip to nusa penida.

If you want to come to Nusa Penida to get away from the Bali crowds, then a Nusa Penida day trip is a total no-go! On a day trip, you will be surrounded by tourists from dawn until dusk, never getting a chance to experience the island’s true spirit.

On the other hand, if you’re only interested in Instagramming the big sights, like Angel’s Billabong, Broken Beach, and Kelingking, then a Nusa Penida day tour is an efficient way to pack them into a short time.

How many nights do you need on Nusa Penida?

Your length of stay on the island really depends what you plan to do there. If you’re a beach bum with a motorbike, then you’ll have plenty to occupy you for four or five days.

trip nusa penida

If you want to do a snorkelling tour and an island tour, you should spend at least four nights so you have one day free to explore.

If you don’t drive a motorbike, like us, then two or three days is plenty.

Should you go to Nusa Penida straight from the airport?

Since Sanur, the main departure point for Nusa Penida fast boats, is pretty close to the airport, it might seem to make sense to travel to the island just after landing. I wouldn’t recommend it though, because getting a boat right after your flight could be tricky and exhausting.

(Don’t miss: Our guide to the best restaurants in Sanur for vegans and the rest of you)

Also, it’s best not to plan to depart from Nusa Penida on the same day as your flight leaves from Bali. Delays because of weather or other unforeseen circumstances are all too common in this part of the world.

You’ll greatly increase your stress levels and the chance of missing your flight if you try to get from Nusa Penida to the airport the day your flight leaves.

Which area should you stay in?

Except for the small towns clustered around the two ferry ports (Sampalan on the north coast and Toyapakeh to the west) there is no real central area for tourists on Nusa Penida.

On our first trip we stayed at Namaste Bungalows for a few nights. We loved this area, near the small town of Sakti, because it’s walking distance to Crystal Bay and brings you closer to the other big sights in west Nusa Penida.

Our second visit, we stayed at Petak Cottage , which is walking distance to the tiny town of Ped. The Petak bungalows have amazing views over the north shore and Mount Agung. Plus, it’s close to Penida Espresso , which offers amazing smoothie bowls for breakfast and lunch.

How to Get to Nusa Penida

Fast boat from bali to nusa penida.

The most common way to get to Nusa Penida is via fast boat. There are countless companies who shift tourists from one island to the other and boats run all day long. The fast boat takes about 45 minutes on a good day, but can take much longer on a stormy day.

On the day we crossed, the water was calm, but the ride was still bumpy and the spray from the sea prevented us from opening our windows. If you’re prone to seasickness, being enclosed in a boat with stale air, petrol fumes, and a crowd of people will definitely not be your thing!

How much does the fast boat to Nusa Penida cost?

This is almost the same as asking “How long is a piece of string?” If you ask ten people on your fast boat how much they paid, you’ll likely get ten different answers.

The best advice we can give is to check the prices online, with your hotel on Bali, and with your hotel on Nusa Penida. Choose the best price you are quoted and book ahead.

Don’t wait until you get to the port to buy your ticket. You’ll almost certainly pay more because the boat owners know you already spent the time and money to get there.

We organized our tickets with our hotel on Nusa Penida and paid 150K IDR (10 USD) each for a one-way fast boat. We talked to a few travellers who had booked at the port — they all paid 300K IDR (20 USD) each for a one-way ticket.

Where to get the fast boat to Nusa Penida

From canggu, kuta, uluwatu and other areas in southern bali.

The closest fast boat port from Bali’s southern region is Sanur, on the east edge of Denpasar. Depending on the time of day, boats travel to the main ferry port at Sampalan or the fast boat port at Toyapakeh. Boats from Sanur to Nusa Penida take about 45 minutes in calm weather, more if the weather is bad.

trip to nusa penida

From Ubud and eastern Bali to Nusa Penida

Get the fast boat from Padangbai if you’re in Ubud or eastern Bali. Nusa Penida boats can arrive on the island at Sampalan or Toyapakeh, so check first to make sure your boat goes to the stop closest to your hotel.

You might also be offered a ticket from Kusamba, which is near Padang Bai. It’s also fine and will offer the shortest crossing — around 20 minutes in good weather.

Getting the Nusa Penida ferry to Padang Bai

There is a public ferry to Nusa Penida, which is mostly used by locals. Though this ferry used to leave from Sanur, it now leaves from Padang Bai and arrives at Sampalan port. Accurate information about the ferry is scarce so it’s only a good option if you’re on a tight budget.

Here’s everything we found out about the ferry while on Nusa Penida:

Ferry times between Nusa Penida and Padang Bai

Here is a picture of the official ferry times as of July 9, 2018.

trip to nusa penida

Now ignore that picture.

The truth is, the reason you can’t get accurate ferry times from anyone is that there are no exact ferry times.

Here’s as much information as we could gather about the ferry between Sampalan, Nusa Penida and Padang Bai:

  • The ferry leaves Nusa Penida in the morning, some time between 8am and 11am (but maybe not every day)
  • The ferry makes the crossing in around 1 to 2 hours
  • A second ferry comes from Padang Bai to Sampalan on Nusa Penida later in the morning or in the afternoon
  • It then waits at Nusa Penida while fuel trucks deliver fuel around the island before returning to Padangbai some time in the afternoon

Read the section below about our experience to get some invaluable ferry-taking tips!

Ticket prices for the ferry

The official ticket price is 27,300 IDR for a walk-on passenger. In reality, they round that up to 30,000 IDR, at least for foreigners. You may be asked to pay more — but the prices are posted on the wall at the ticket office, so don’t.

Our experience taking the ferry

Having been told by our hotel that the ferry leaves at 8am, we arrived at the ferry terminal at 7:30am. We bought our tickets and the ticket seller said the ferry would leave at 10am. We checked with several other travellers, who had all been told the same thing.

We went to get breakfast and came back at 9:10am, only to see the ferry sailing away into the distance! It might be the only ferry in the world that leaves unexpectedly early.

The lesson? Don’t believe anybody, even the ticket seller, about the ferry times. Just get there early and be prepared to wait.

Before long, new travellers started to arrive to get the 11am ferry. But 11am came and went, with no sign of a ferry. Most of us finally gave up and decided to head over to the nearby fast boat port. We managed to get tickets to Kusamba for 100K IDR each. The boat left on time and took exactly 17 minutes.

As we were making the crossing, we spotted the car ferry heading towards Penida. It probably arrived around noon. I’m guessing we were snug in our Ubud hotel before it left again.

What to Expect on the Island

Getting to your hotel.

If you’re planning on renting a motorbike , you can do so right at the port.

If not, make sure to arrange with your hotel for a transfer. Unlike many touristy spots in Asia, there are few options and little competition for public transport while you’re on the island. You might find a car or motorbike willing to drive you to your hotel, but it will be a hassle and you’ll pay extra for not booking ahead.

Prepare to pay more

Being an island with a captive tourist population, prepare to pay a little more for everything than you would on Bali.

Accommodation is about 30% more for similar rooms, food costs about the same but for smaller portions, and transport is much more. Renting a motorbike will cost 100–200 K IDR per day (7–14 USD) while getting a car and driver for the day costs at least 70K IDR (50 USD).

Transportation woes

I’ve said it already but it’s worth repeating: unless you’re a confident motorbike driver who doesn’t mind driving up and down steep hills in sand, gravel, potholes and traffic, Nusa Penida is tough and expensive to get around.

You can hire a car and driver for about 70K IDR/day (50 USD/day). It was hard to find a motorbike driver who wanted to bother driving us anywhere and when we finally did, he wanted $20 for a quick drop-off at a nearby Nusa Penida beach – with no guarantee of a pick-up later. We declined.

There is a public shuttle bus on the island, which the locals use to get between towns, but we were never able to figure out:

  • The schedule or the route
  • How to flag it down
  • If we were welcome on the service or not

But if you’re staying on the north coast, give it a try and let us know how it goes!

Roads are brutal

When you’re planning your escape to Nusa Penida, remember that the roads here are not like roads where you are from. They are literally falling apart and often very crowded with tourist vehicles.

That means that a short drive can take hours to complete. If you’re on a motorbike, things are just as slow because of the sand and gravel. Don’t expect to do too much in one day.

Food is only so so

nusa penida trip

Despite the high praise on TripAdvisor for many of the restaurants on Nusa Penida, we found that the food quality was much lower than in Canggu, Ubud, or even on Lombok. Portions seem to be smaller, too.

If you like seafood, there are a number of places specializing in grilled fish, which looked pretty damn tasty, even to our vegan eyes.

For vegans and vegetarians, many places only offer fried rice, fried noodles, or veggie curry. We found the best vegan food selection at:

  • Penida Espresso . Only open for breakfast and lunch but their smoothie bowls are delicious and filling.
  • The Gallery . Friendly place with an assortment of vegan dishes. The tempeh sandwich with mashed potatoes was our favourite dish there. Stay away from the Gado Gado, which is pretty lame.
  • CCCO (Clothoc City Corner). Their nofollowGado Gado is pretty good, while the Sweet & Spicy Fried tempeh was good enough to order repeatedly.
  • Warung Tu Pande . We could never go here, because it was too far from our hotel, but our vegan friends who stayed on that side of the island loved it.
  • Warung Kekinian . We had breakfast here in Sampalan and the food was absolutely great. Good thing too, since it was this breakfast that caused us to miss our ferry.

Information is scarce

Want to know what time the ferry goes? Or how much a tour costs? Or how long it will take? Or where’s the best place for dinner? Good luck finding out!

Details are not really Indonesia’s cultural strong suit and on Nusa Penida it seemed even worse than Bali. We seemed to get conflicting or just plain incorrect information from everyone about everything.

These little exchanges can be frustrating, so when you’re asking questions, take a deep breath, and be prepared to come away from the conversation more confused than you were going in.

I hope I didn’t come across too negative in this post! I just want to be as honest as I can about the good and bad of travel to Nusa Penida. We really enjoyed the village-like vibe on the island and, despite a few frustrations, we had a pretty good time there.

I hope this post will prepare you if you’re planning a trip to Nusa Penida. It’s always good to know what to expect so you can make the most of your time! If you have any questions or you had a different experience on Nusa Penida that we did, let us know in the comments below.

  • Tracing the Fascinating Culture and History of Nusa Penida
  • Celebrations & Ceremonies in Bali and Nusa Penida

When I first visited Nusa Penida in 2015, the roads were in poor condition and each excursion to an island site was an adventure in itself. However, with the recent improvement of the roads, it is now feasible to visit multiple sites in a single half-day or full-day trip.

Batu Bolong Nusa Penida Bali

When it comes to Nusa Penida in Bali , visitors often seek out practical information , such as recommended itineraries. To simplify the planning process, I’ve formulated four itineraries that bring together multiple noteworthy sites on the island. The itineraries begin with the easiest routes and have well-maintained roads that are accessible via scooter or car. They can be combined or modified to fit your timeframe. To discover all of my favorite places on Nusa Penida , including both land and underwater sights, refer to the Nusa Penida map .

Itineraries – 1: The Northeast coast of Nusa Penida

The road is very good on almost the entire route which makes it one of the easiest itineraries. Please schedule at least half a day and preferably a full day.

From Toyapakeh to Goa Giri Putri

After leaving Toyapakeh Harbour , you will reach Goa Giri Putri Temple after 30 minutes. You will follow the north coast of the island where tourism has developed the fastest, especially between Ped and Sampalan. However, there are still seaweeds crops near Suana which offer the opportunity for beautiful photos. If there are not too many clouds you will have a magnificent view of Mount Agung.

Seaweeds in Nusa Penida Bali

If you have time, outward or return, you can take a short detour to Limo about halfway. There you will find artisans who create silver jewelry.

Goa Giri Putri’s visit is a great moment. The entry into this huge cave through a small hose, the route through the purification stations and the final Trimutri ceremony will no doubt leave you with great memories.

Plan a lunch stop

If you have not had lunch, it is best to do so before leaving the coast as there will not be many opportunities before reaching Atuh Beach . But you will still find drinks, fruit juices, grilled fish and basic dishes at Atuh Beach. If you arrived through Diamond Beach, take the path down along the cliff, at least until the staircase cut in the heart of the rock of the cliff.

In front of Diamond Beach Nusa Penida Bali

In front of Diamond Beach

The signage to get there is a bit confusing. Because you will often see two Atuh Beach signs, one indicating to the left, and the other to the right. In fact, there are several routes to get to the beach, either on the left or on the right. The access on the left side is shorter but the descent to the beach is more recent, shorter, but less easy. My advice is rather to arrive on the right side which offers a more beautiful panorama. To do this, whenever the choice is offered, take the right lane ! Or more simply, type Diamond Beach on Google Map!

From there you will have a hundred meters to walk on a ridge line. With a little luck, from the top of the cliff, you can see Manta rays : look for dark shapes that stand out against the blue of the sea. But you can in any case take spectacular photos ! Then all you have to do is to climb down the 126 concrete steps that will take you to the beach. Beautiful beach, crystal clear water but like everywhere in Nusa Penida watch out for waves and currents.

Teletubbies Nusa Penida Bali

Teletubbies

Return circuit

If you are coming from Sakti a good option is to return by Tanglad and the interior of the island because the road has also been redone. You will find handicrafts of local fabrics in Tanglad. If you have time you can also take a detour by Suwehan beach (detour twice 20 minutes). Or by the hills called Teletubbies (detour of 2 times 5 minutes) and Sekartaji (detour of 30 minutes). Or continue with one of the other routes that covers the southeast of Nusa Penida (Tanglad, Suwehan, Teletubbies, Sekartaji).

Itineraries Nusa Penida Bali

Itinerary 1

Itineraries – 2: Southwest of Nusa Penida

The south west coast of Nusa Penida offers some very beautiful sites, which are still relatively little visited. The distances are short but the journey times are still quite significant because the renovation of the road network is not complete. After several route tests, I suggest this one which I think is optimized in the current state of the roads.

Manta Point and Guyangan Waterfall

From Toyapakeh or Crystal Bay you can reach Guyangan Waterfall in around 45 minutes via Batukandik. The road has been redone almost entirely. Just before arriving at Guyangan you will see a small Manta Point sign pointing to the left. It is a small detour of about twenty minutes in total, but when you get to a small white temple you will normally see Manta rays from the top of the cliff. However, there is no way to go down to sea level to swim with them. You will need to contact a diving center for that.

Manta Rays spotted form the cliff Nusa Penida Bali

Manta Rays spotted form the cliff

Guyangan Waterfall is a very beautiful place with a breathtaking view. If you are not dizzy you can descend the blue staircase which leads to sea level, to a small temple (plan to bring a sarong) and to small natural baths on the cliff side !

Temeling and its primary forest

From Toyapakeh or Crystal Bay you can reach Temeling in about 40 minutes via Batumadeg. The road has been redone almost entirely. If you come from Peguyangan, you still have to go back to Batukandik and then to Batumadeg and it will take around 30 minutes by scooter.

If you have your own scooter you can practically descend to the bottom and park it in the “parkir” area. The descent into the primary forest, on scooter then on foot, is quite impressive. If you came by car you will probably find a scooter driver on site who can drive you downstairs. Otherwise, the bravest will go walking, but that makes a hike of more than two kilometers…

A small staircase has recently been fitted out to descend to the beach. On the way you will pass a large natural swimming pool. A few hundred meters further down you will reach the beach. The beach is very wild and visitors have started to form fairly poetic pebble pyramids. Allow a good hour on site in total if you go down to the beach.

Batu Bolong in front of Banah Cliff

Banah Cliff

Continuing the 5 minute drive to Banah Cliff from where you will have a breathtaking view of Batu Bolong. Literally it means rock with a hole. Very colorful and at the same time very explicit when you see the rock (or its photo) ! It is this rock that inspired the logo of Warnakali restaurant .

Itinerary 2 Nusa Penida Bali

Itinerary 2

Itineraries – 3 : the iconic sites of west Nusa Penida

Kelingking beach.

Going back through Batumadeg and taking a small road on the left, which deserves to be redone, you will get to Kelingking Beach in 20 minutes from Temeling. It takes approximately 45 minutes from Crystal Bay. The site was still deserted until April 2017 but has grown a lot in recent years. You will find several warungs where to drink a fruit juice or eat a nasi goreng. Do not ride along the cliff with your scooter, there have already been accidents and death tolls.

Broken Beach and Angel’s Billabong

Itinerary 3 Nusa Penida Bali

Itinerary 3

Itineraries – 4 Crystal Bay and Gamat Bay

After itinerary 3 you can continue with a walk to Crystal Bay or Gamat Bay to end the day with a beautiful sunset. If you want to have a drink by the pool or have a bite to eat in front of the sunset, check out Amok Sunset . They have happy hours on cocktails between 5 and 6 p.m.

There aren’t really any marked hiking trails yet like there can be in Europe. But for good walkers here are two suggestions for a walk.

Instead of descending by scooter in the Temeling valley, some do it walking. The path is well laid out since the scooters take it but it goes down to go. And so it goes up on the return ! It takes 2 hours to get there and back. Without hurrying too much, my friend Cathy, who did it recently, tells me.

Walking from Crystal Bay to Broken Beach

The path from Crystal Bay to Broken Beach on foot is not really traced (or so I did not find it). And it is therefore imperative to go there with real shoes. But it’s very beautiful.

Crystal Bay to Broken Beach hike Nusa Penida Bali

Crystal Bay to Broken Beach hike

Sea trips in Nusa Penida

Most travelers choose a sea trip with one objective : snorkeling or diving. And often a second objective: to see Manta rays.

The snorkeling trip to Manta Bay

The small boats which leave from Toyapakeh or Crystal Bay to bring tourists to see the Manta rays generally go to Manta Bay. This is the bay you can see from Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach. It’s best to go early to avoid the stress of having to swim with a mask, fins and snorkel in the middle of a swarm of boats and other snorkelers. Manta rays are often there, but not always. The first boat to spot them signals it to the others. It can also happen that they are just below Broken Beach arch and can be seen very well from the cliff.

The snorkeling tour usually also includes Crystal Bay and / or Gamat Bay and sometimes the mangrove at Nusa Lembogan.

Sea trip to Manta Point

Dive centers normally go (unless they want to save gas …) to Manta Point. This is where the Manta Ray cleaning stations are located. The journey takes around 40 minutes and is very beautiful. Especially in the early morning when there is sometimes a morning mist that lines the surface of the sea. The waves crashing on the cliffs of Nusa Penida can also be quite spectacular seen from the sea.

From the port of Toyapakeh you will pass in front of Gamat Bay then in front of Crystal Bay before crossing Manta Bay. You’ll probably see Angel’s Billabong’s natural pool and perhaps Broken Beach’s arch. Along the route you will also likely see anglers at the top of the cliffs or on a rock.

You will then pass Kelingking Beach, Batu Bolong, Temeling then Guyangan before arriving at Manta Point.

A travel paradise, Nusa Penida island is greeting all of you

1 day in Nusa Penida (Nusa Penida day trip): How to get to Nusa Penida island, Bali?

Nusa Penida is a western island of Bali. There are multiple ways to arrive in Sanur port from the center.

Map to direct to Sanur

The traffic in Bali has no subway, has frequent traffic jam, and is always overcharged by taxies’ drivers, therefore, we chose Klook as a companion. With over 1 million VND/person only, our team was assisted by a Klook’s staff to take us from the hotel in Kuta area to Sanur port.

Sanur Port

Every carrier is here specific and every passenger on the ship shall be supplied one name-tag to identify the ticket of which carrier is from.

Many boats to get to Nusa Penida island

If you lose your way, you shall base on the colors of name-tag to follow. One-way (departure/return) ticket price is from 100,000 IDR ~ 175, 000 IDR upon the carrier.

A boat for transfer to Nusa Penida from Sanur

There are 3 departure trips from Sanur port and 3 returning trips from Sampalan harbor in the island for every day.

Water surface at Sanur port in the morning is twinkling as crystal

From Sanur port, the ship spent around one hour to take us to Nusa Penida island. You might rent motorbikes to have your experience in the local residents’ life from faraway island.

Experience in staying with a local family

The rental price is about 75, 000 IDR ~ 100,000 IDR for the whole day, it’s up to your discussion.

Going around Nusa Penida island by motobikes

In addition, you can rent a car driven by your own driver and go with a local tour guide. Coconut tree ranges along to the paved roads.

Coconut trees ranges along to the paved roads

Due to a tour booking on Klook, Mr Wayan & Kadek – two local tour guides have waited for us for a long time. These two guys are Klook’s staffs in Bali, therefore, we didn’t worry anything. The routes on the island were almost asphalted, but are narrow and haven’t many vehicles for travel. The infrastructure of this place still has a lot of inadequacy, however, the natural scenery is ultimately spectacular.

The paved roads in Bali

Every smoothly blue coconut trees range is stretched on the winding roads that sections you have to go up and then go down the slopes, to cross the forests, cliffs, coastlines and then continuously pass on the potholes caused by the traces of fallen rock, obviously that is a very fantastic, amazing and also interesting feeling.

Close-up of a boat ticket to Nusa Penida island

Because of only one day on the island, Wayan and Kadek took us to visit the major landscapes such as Kelingking beach, Angela Billabong cliff, Broken beach, and Crystal Bay – the spots mentioned in the schedule of Klook as well.

Kelingking Beach

The formations of Indonesia’s islands were mostly from volcanoes, the strong erosion of seawater deeply striking against the cliffs created several small bays inside the mountainside. Day by day, the sea waves have ridged into rock rapids to become a majestically spectacular scenery.

Nusa Penida 1 day itinerary (Nusa Penida one day itinerary) — Morning – Afternoon: Visit the spots for extremely virtual photography

A first destination where Wayan and Kadek took us was Kelingking Beach. It was nearly one hour to reach to Kelingking Beach from Nusa Penida wharf. You shall be here attracted in an eye-catching natural scene. If you are a believer indulges in photography, this place shall not make you disappointed. Looking down from above, a full shape of “a giant dinosaur” is creeping into the cave, exposes its tail to the sea side.

Kelingking beach is like a dinosaur creeping towards the sea

Left side of such dinosaur is an ellipse shaped small island as an egg, right side is a white sandy beach with deep blue water, sea waves lap on the purely white sand. This is a specific location where should not omit while footing on Nusa Penida island.

A giant dinosaur in Kelingking Beach

Next, Wayan and Kadek waited for us to visit Angel Billabong cliff. From afar, this cliff looks as a big pool formed by the lava eruption inside a volcano. The pool is located between two cliffs that the interior is the azure jade water.

Angela Billabong Cliff with azure blue water

Momentarily, the big waves overflowed from the sea, hit and covered the cliffs and then melted, the whole pool was risen to a fully white color as some giant snow hills in a vision that you usually watch in films.

Angel Billabong Cliff

Broken Beach is not far away from there. This place has a legendary stone bridge dividing a border between outside of the sea and inside of the deep blue natural pool. Day by day, the seawater has overflowed in the pool through a huge hole under the corrosive mountain edge, likely such stone was broken by someone. That is a reason that people named Broken Beach.

Broken Beach for lovers

If you have time to stay on the island, you can walk along on that stone bridge to see the sunset. Nobody can know when was such bridge from, just know that this is a masterpiece which the nature brought to this island, anybody who came to Bali must drop in this bridge.

Broken bridge

Nusa Penida island day trip (Nusa Penida one day trip) — Afternoon – Evening: Enjoy the delicious food of the locality and visit Crystal Bay

We had lunch in a local restaurant on the island. This tour price of Klook included lunch fee, so you don’t need to worry about food and drink. This meal including one dish (cooked rice/noodles) accompanied by drinks. This restaurant’s space is quite luxurious enough for your unreal life under the sultry weather in the equatorial country.

Lunch with Mie Goreng at the local restaurant on the island

After lunch, our final destination was Crystal Bay, a landscape having an extreme wild beach with the crystal azure water. However, Crystal bay does not possess a white sandy beach as same as the other sea areas due to impaction of the volcanic lava eruption. The waves are adequately strong, are washed over ashore for every time, you can be scratched caused by fragments of stones or corals colliding on feet if you are not careful. Therefore, you should arrange the personal protection equipment such as glasses, life-jacket, etc. for swimming.

Snorkeling in the clean blue sea of Crystal Bay

Being known that we liked taking photos, Wayan and Kadek earnestly kept stuffs for our seriously characteristic experience.

Beautiful Crystal Bay but you should be careful with fragments of stones or corals

We only had one day to discover Nusa Penida, therefore there were a few of spot we went. If there is more time, you should spend 2-3 days to explore all the islands and also the other famous places such as seeing of sunset at Banah Cliff Point, swimming in Tembeling Forest pool, Rumah Pohon tree house, Peguyangan (Guyangan) waterfall, Suwehan beach, Atuh beach, Bukit Teletubbies hill, swinging experience at Saren Cliff Point or coral snorkeling in Gamat bay and etc.

Banah Cliff Point - Nusa Penida

If you don’t know how to get there, don’t worry because Klook shall support you everything.

Saren Cliff Point

Thanks to Wayan and Kadek – Klook staffs in Bali – new friends who are very nice. Surely, we shall come back here in a recent day.
