Exploring West Nusa Penida

Discover the extraordinary wilderness of Nusa Penida – the largest and most exotic of the three Nusa Islands. Located just a 45-minute boat ride east from Bali, Nusa Penida is best known for its collection of unique Hindu temples, unspoiled beaches, and picturesque landscapes of cliff formations and lagoons.

Visitors will experience the stunning scenery of Nusa Penida with a visit to Kelingking Beach, offering memorable coastline views of rugged hills and elusive pockets of sand. The dramatic view of white cliffs contrasted with azure blue water and rolling waves is one of the most photographed spots on the island. The bay features a green limestone formation reminiscent of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The pristine beach itself can only be reached via a challenging 400m cliffside hike that is recommended only for the fit and adventurous traveller.

The famous Angel’s Billabong, where colourful rocks form a natural infinity pool with crystal clear waters, is also not to be missed. Nearby Broken Beach (Pasih Uug) is marked by a distinguishable landmark of a hilly arch-like rock formation over crashing waves and provides incredible views over Manta Bay, named after the giant mantas that can sometimes be spotted near the surface of the deep blue water.

Conclude your excursion with a swim at Crystal Bay, a secluded cove with a 200-metre stretch of white sand. Besides its beautiful palm-fringed beach, the bay is best known as one of Nusa Penida’s famous snorkelling and dive sites.
