Discover Bali’s Exotic Sister Island: Nusa Penida

It’s no secret that Bali is Indonesia’s most visited island, but we want to shine the light on the neighbouring island of Nusa Penida. Located off the coast of Southwest Bali, Nusa Penida is an extraordinary destination that homes some of the region’s best underwater marine life and pristine beaches. Larger than Lembongan but much smaller than Bali, Nusa Penida combines breathtaking scenery and crystal-clear blue waters that lap the shores of powdery white sand beaches. The entire island is draped in lush greenery, with its slopes, hills, and endless views making its beauty authentically unique.

Sightseeing can start at scenic Teletubbies Hill, followed by a visit to Diamond Beach at the far eastern tip of the island. Accessible by rugged steps descending limestone cliffs, picture-perfect views and beautiful sands provide opportunities for visitors eager to capture their best selfies. A short walk along the cliff top takes you to Atuh Beach, renowned for its natural beauty. A visit to Penida is not complete without a trip to the spiritual site of Goa Giri Putri, where Balinese Hindus flock to perform purification ceremonies all year round. Hidden inside a vast cave, incense smoke clouds over statues, shrines, and alters that lie within, and a Hindu priest offers the chance to give holy water blessings on the way out.

The charms and unspoiled beauty of Nusa Penida are its key attraction, and a visit should certainly be included when next landing in Bali.
