Nusa Penida Tour: The Perfect day trip from Bali

Nusa Penida Tour: The Perfect day trip from Bali

Nusa Penida is the little gem of Bali. Penida island is part of the Nusa Islands , is the biggest of the 3 but until now the least developed. By visiting Nusa Penida expect white-sand beaches with silky blue water, 200-meter high coastal cliffs drop, and yet untouched nature. It is recommended to either visit the island by a one-day Nusa Penida Tour or a 3-day Nusa Penida trip .

Things to see on a Nusa Penida Tour

During a Nusa Penida day tour, you can either explore the west or east coast of Penida Island. West is more popular since it is closer to the harbor. East is at least as beautiful and has fewer tourists. If you prefer to see both sides, it is better to do a 3-day Nusa Penida Trip .

West Coast Nusa Penida Tour

The west coast of Penida island has beautiful sights like Angel’s Billabong and Kelingking Beach . Combine this with Crystal Bay, Peguyangan waterfall and Broken Beach to have a day filled with incredible viewpoints and jaw-dropping nature.

Tip: It’s also a great option to switch Broken Beach and Angel’s Billabong for Tembeling Natural Pool .

Kelingking beach

Kelingking beach is 100% sure the most spectacular place on Nusa Penida. White sand and a piece of land shaped like a dinosaur head. The view from the top is incredible but be prepared if you want to hike down to the beach. This hike down is a 45-minute incredibly steep path.

Angel’s Billabong & Broken Beach

Nusa Penida is full of spectacular shaped locations. Broken Beach is one of them. A 45-minute bumpy ride from KelingKing takes you to this spectacular gate.

A 150-meter walk from Broken Beach is a natural infinity pool where you can dip in and enjoy the clearest water you’ve ever swam in.

Here are all your hotel options in Nusa Penida.

Nusa Penida Island In Bali: Travel Guide & How To Visit

The beautiful, exotic Nusa Penida island lies just 25 kilometers from Bali, the most famous tourist destination in Indonesia.

Nusa Penida is a much smaller island than Bali, but it has some of the most amazing scenery in the entire Bali province (which it’s part of).

We’ve visited Penida more than a dozen times over the years, but it never gets old. This island is definitely one of the most beautiful places to visit in Indonesia .

The island can be visited on a day trip from Bali (same day return), but I think it’s better to stay and spend at least a few days sightseeing. There are so many good photo spots, hikes, and other things to do in Nusa Penida!

This travel blog will explain what to do in Nusa Penida, how to get there, where to stay, best transport options and tour packages, and some of the top sights to see. I’ve also included a handy Nusa Penida island map for trip planning!

Where Is Nusa Penida?

Nusa Penida is a small island located southeast of Bali, Indonesia. The distance from Bali is about 25 kilometers (15 miles).

Penida has two small neighboring islands sitting right next to it called Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, and together these are known as the Nusa islands, but Nusa Penida has become the most famous of the three because of its scenic cliff views and stunning beaches.  

How To Get To Nusa Penida

From Bali, the only way to reach Nusa Penida is by speedboat or ferry, with the speedboat journey taking about 45 minutes or so. There’s no airport in Nusa Penida, so the closest place to fly is the international airport in Bali (DPS). You can shop for flights to Bali at Skyscanner.

There are a bunch of speedboat companies in Bali making the trip to Penida daily, and they all depart from Sanur Beach at various times. If you’re staying in Ubud, Canggu, Seminyak, Kuta, or elsewhere in south Bali, you can also drive over to Sanur and catch a boat. Some boat companies include a shuttle service from these areas in their total price.

I wrote a complete guide on how to get to Nusa Penida with one of these speedboat companies if you want to go there independently and arrange everything yourself. It’s more economical than booking a tour package, but also a bit more complicated.

The other option is booking a day tour to Nusa Penida with a Bali-based tour company. This can be a good option if you’re on a tight schedule or want to skip the hassle.

Visiting Nusa Penida Island – Tourist Fee

Since 2023, there’s now an entrance fee for tourists arriving by boat at Nusa Penida, and it’s intended to pay for better infrastructure on the island.

You’ll pay this in cash when you first get off the boat in Penida, and the fee is 25k Rupiah for adults and 15k for children. It gives you entry to all three of the Nusa islands: Penida, Lembongan, and Ceningan.

This ticket also gives you entrance to all of the main attractions and beaches on Nusa Penida, so you don’t have to pay a second fee at Kelingking Beach anymore, for example.

Overall, it’s a positive change, because in the past you had to whip out your wallet and pay a small entrance fee at every tourist spot in Nusa Penida. That was a bit tiresome. Nowadays, you pay once at the harbor and you’re done.  

Transport: How To Get Around On Nusa Penida

Even though Nusa Penida is a much smaller island than Bali (with about 4 percent of Bali’s land mass), it’s still not exactly tiny. You can expect to spend hours driving around if you want to see the best sights on each corner of the island.

Just like in Bali, you have two main transport options for exploring Nusa Penida: motorbike rental (self drive), or hire a car and private driver.

Many of the roads in Nusa Penida are still very rough and narrow, so I don’t think motorbikes are a good idea here, although lots of people seem to do it with no issues. Remember to wear a helmet, honk your horn before hills and blind turns, and be prepared to pull over to the side to let cars pass. There’s not a lot of room on the road.

When I visit Nusa Penida I’ve always rented a car with driver (you can book here ) because it’s safer and more comfortable, and the prices are only a bit higher than what you’d pay in Bali for a full day of driving.

Scooters are also easy to rent from your accommodation (or other places) in Penida, and you can expect to pay about 75k Rupiah (~$5 USD) per day with a full tank of gas.

For short taxi trips (like hotel transfers to/from the dock) you can usually arrange those on the spot or with your hotel, although they’re not very cost effective.

Unfortunately the Grab and Go-Jek ride hailing apps are not yet available in Nusa Penida (only Bali), but maybe that will change eventually.

What To Do In Nusa Penida

• kelingking beach.

The Kelingking Cliff is the most famous view in Nusa Penida, and probably one of the most iconic views anywhere in Bali.

This is an incredible ‘T-Rex’ shaped rock sticking out over the ocean, with perfect turquoise water splashing around it. The first time you look over the edge of the cliff and see this view, it really is breathtaking!

After you’re done admiring the scenery at the Kelingking Cliff, there’s also a path to go down to the beach at the bottom.

The hike down to the beach is a major workout, a bit scary, and takes at least two hours roundtrip, but you’re rewarded with one of the best white sand beaches in Nusa Penida Bali.

• Paluang Cliff Viewpoint

Everyone goes to Kelingking Cliff, but there’s another spot located very close to it with its own amazing scenery, called Paluang Cliff. It’s just a 5 minute drive from Kelingking.

Paluang may not be as well known as Kelingking, but that’s part of the appeal. It’s a great alternative spot that gives you views of the Kelingking T-rex from the other side, without the crowds.

There are swings and photo platforms at the Paluang Cliff, plus a Balinese temple with a quirky car shrine, called the ‘car temple’ of Nusa Penida.

• Broken Beach

For most visitors to Nusa Penida island, one of the first stops will be Broken Beach. This is a cool circular cove formed in the rocks, complete with a leftover arch.

This area is also one of the popular hangout spots for the manta rays, so you’ll most likely get to see some rays floating around in the sea nearby.

The bottom is filled with turquoise water from the waves coming in, and there’s even a small white sand beach. You can’t actually go down to the beach, just admire from above, but what a cool view it is!

There’s a few old local legends associated with this place that say it was created either by a giant’s footsteps or by an angry sorcerer.

It’s definitely a very unique kind of formation that I don’t think I’ve seen anywhere else in the world.

• Crystal Bay

One of the popular spots on the west side of Penida is Crystal Bay. This is a good hangout or suntanning spot, and it has plenty of food and drink shacks for refreshments. Snorkeling gear can be rented here, or you can just sit around and chill out while eating some chicken satay.

The great thing about Crystal Bay is that it’s one of the best spots to catch the sunset in Penida. Last July, I went back here with a buddy and we sipped Bintangs with our toes in the sand while the sunset came down over the rocks on the coast.

• Banah Cliff Point

The great thing about Banah Cliff Point is that it actually has half a dozen different view points along the cliffs, and at each view point you can walk right up to the edge of the cliff and look down at the waves crashing on the rocks.

From these cliffs you can usually see a bunch of tiny manta rays and speedboats floating around on the ocean below. You can also see the Banah rock, a doughnut shaped rock sticking out of the ocean. Great stuff!

• Tembeling Cave & Beach

The Tembeling beach and forest is a hidden spot tucked away in the cliffs on Nusa Penida’s west coast, with a natural pool and small waterfall to enjoy.

My favorite feature of this beach is the awesome sea cave that opens up to a view of the huge cliffs on the coast, but this place is also becoming popular for the Tembeling natural pool, which you can take a dip in and relax.

The access to this beach is a bit tricky, but it’s one of our favorite spots in Bali!

• Atuh Beach

This is one of the nicest beaches on the south end of Penida island. Unlike Suwehan Beach, Atuh is not a secret and there are sunbeds, beanbags, and a couple of nice food and drink shacks here.

The highlight of Atuh Beach is probably the big elephant shaped rock in the ocean (locals say it looks like a stiletto), and the big variety of sea life that can be seen trapped in the rocks at low tide.

• Nusa Penida Treehouse (Rumah Pohon)

Have you ever wanted to sleep in a wooden tree house and wake up to the sounds of the ocean? Here’s where you can do it. The room and bed are very basic, but the views and location are out of this world.

You’ll fall asleep to the sound of geckos chirping in the trees, and wake up to an incredible sunrise over the Raja Lima islands, with dolphins and manta rays swimming and jumping in the distance.

• Diamond Beach

Diamond Beach, named after the pointy diamond shaped rock on the beach, is another utterly incredible “cliff beach” on the southeastern coast of Nusa Penida island.

It’s accessible since late 2018, when a path down to the beach was carved into the side of the cliffs. I’ve even seen some wildlife occasionally, from monitor lizards to dolphins and manta rays.

This place is also becoming popular thanks to the scenic swing, where you can take pictures while swinging between two palm trees over the beach.

• Teletubbies Hill

The center of Penida island has these big round hills named after the background scenery from the Teletubbies kids show.

They look kind of like the Chocolate Hills in Bohol Philippines , and using a drone here gives you some unique perspectives.

If you come here during or just after the rainy season (roughly December to April), then the hills are a perfect green color.

Between April and May, the hills are a more yellow color, but still neat to see. During the summer however, the hills will turn dry and brown, so they won’t look as nice.

• Suwehan Beach

Looking for a hidden beach with perfect white sand and turquoise waves? Suwehan is one of the best hidden beaches in Penida.

The hike down to the beach takes about 30 minutes and it’s exhausting, but very worthwhile. This is one of my favorite places in Penida. There’s even a cool pointy rock that looks like a Christmas tree.

This beach is a hidden gem that still isn’t included in most Nusa Penida island tour packages, but you can get there with a scooter or car charter. Careful, because the road is quite rough.

• Suwehan Tree House

In 2018, the locals built some tree houses at the top of Suwehan cliff. There’s four of these tree houses now, and you can stay the night in them!

Don’t expect luxury, but there’s an outside shower/bathroom and a small food shack for ordering meals, and the beds look comfy.

The best part is that you have a stunning view of the ocean and cliffs, and it’s just a short distance from Suwehan Beach!

• Goa Giri Putri Temple

This is a Hindu temple inside of a big limestone cave, located on the east side of Penida. To reach it, you have to climb more than one hundred steps to the top of the hill.

After crawling through a tiny hole in the side of the mountain, the inside opens up to a huge cave about 300 meters long, with high rock ceilings!

Hindu ceremonies are still performed here, but it’s also open to tourists. Exploring this cave is an interesting experience, for sure.

• Nyanyad Beach

This is a mostly unknown beach on the south end of Nusa Penida, with a small temple and giant hills on both sides of the beach.

The road to Nyanyad Beach is a bit tricky to find, but well worth the effort. Google Maps will try to steer you onto a wrong road that leads to a lighthouse.

Once you reach the parking area for Nyanyad, the hike down to the beach only takes 15 minutes, with concrete steps all the way, and the beach has perfect white sand!

This spot is another hidden gem that isn’t included in most Nusa Penida island tour packages, although you can get there with a scooter or car charter.

If you want to try a sketchy, remote Nusa Penida hike with steep paths to get your adrenaline going, this one is for you.

Peguyangan is a small waterfall and natural swimming pool at the bottom of some cliffs on Nusa Penida island, and you reach it by climbing down hundreds of steps on a bright blue stairway.

It’s not for the faint of heart, but the ocean and cliff views here are incredible, which is why I’d rate it as one of the best hikes in Nusa Penida.

There’s even a neat little ultra scenic hotel at the top of the cliffs called Waterfall Inn , with stunning views of the whole area.

Best Nusa Penida Photo Spot

It’s hard to pick the best Nusa Penida photo spot, but I’d say it’s probably a toss-up between Kelingking Beach and Diamond Beach . Both are amazing.

Two other great photo spots in Nusa Penida would have to be Suwehan Beach and the Nusa Penida treehouse . These are stunning, and Suwehan is still pretty underrated.  

Best Nusa Penida Beaches

If white sand is the main thing you’re looking for in Bali, then you’ll want to check out my complete Nusa Penida beach guide, which has a list of all of the very best Penida island beaches .

Obviously there are the famous beaches like Kelingking , Diamond , and Atuh , but there are also quite a few others that are not so well known.

Nusa Penida Hike List

Probably the most epic Nusa Penida hike is the famous Kelingking Cliff , where you can climb down a steep stairway to reach a pristine white sand beach at the bottom.

Another good Nusa Penida hike is Tembeling Beach And Forest , which has a nice mix of jungle and beach scenery, plus a sea cave and natural swimming pool.

If you really want an off-the-radar Nusa Penida hike, check out Batu Siha Beach . This is a new one I explored in 2019, and it’s still untouched except for locals. The path is intense and exhausting, but there’s a white sand beach at the bottom.

The hiking trails in Nusa Penida tend to be very short and intense, because you’re usually climbing down steep cliffs to reach a secluded beach, temple, or waterfall at the bottom.

Unlike Bali, Penida island doesn’t have any mountains or volcanoes to hike. This also means waterfalls are scarce on the island, although there are a couple interesting ones like Peguyangan Waterfall .

Best Sunset Spot In Nusa Penida

There are lots of great sunset spots in Nusa Penida.

The island has a long west-facing coastline, and pretty much anywhere on the west side is good for watching the sunset.

Two favorites are Crystal Bay , which has a relaxing beach, and Amok Sunset , which is a nice restaurant with views over Nusa Ceningan. The views at Kelingking Beach or Paluang Cliff can also be pretty nice.

Sunset time in Nusa Penida Bali can be anywhere from 6:00 PM to 6:45 PM, depending on the day and month. You can check that here .

For a good sunrise spot, check out the Nusa Penida treehouse , on the southeast side of the island.

Water Sports In Nusa Penida

The main water sports in Nusa Penida are snorkeling and scuba diving, and these are exceptional! The section below talks about these activities in a bit more detail.

Unlike Bali, Nusa Penida is not really known for good surfing or waves. However, two other good water sports in Nusa Penida are jet skiing and boat charters.

A boat charter can be great for snorkeling, fishing, or just relaxing while sightseeing around the coast of the island. You can book this with Pulau Private Charters , and they have cruise options to fit every need.

I’ve been itching to try a jet ski tour around Nusa Penida, because it looks like an amazing way to see the epic coastline from a new perspective. The only company currently offering this is Jet Ski Safari Bali Wibisana , and it’s not cheap!

Scuba Diving & Snorkeling In Nusa Penida

The coral reefs around Nusa Penida island are fantastic for diving and snorkeling, and you can even swim with manta rays, ocean sunfish (‘mola mola’), and all kinds of other colorful fish.

In fact, Nusa Penida is one of the best places in the world to swim with manta rays and giant mola mola fish. The latter can only be seen by scuba diving, but manta rays are easy to see while snorkeling near the surface. Take a look at Underwater Photography Guide’s handy writeup for scuba diving in Nusa Penida and Lembongan , including seasonal tips and the best diving spots.

For snorkeling, some of the best spots in Nusa Penida include Manta Bay, Crystal Bay, Gamat Bay, and Toyapakeh Wall. It’s possible to visit all of these spots in a day trip. There’s also an underwater Buddha statue , but sadly they don’t seem to be allowing access anymore.

Nusa Penida snorkeling tours can be arranged on the spot at Toyapakeh boat harbor, or it’s also possible to book them online as day tours departing from Bali, complete with hotel pickup and speed boat transfer.

What To Bring

If you’re putting together a Nusa Penida packing list, here are a few ideas of good things to bring.

Most of the items below can probably be found on Nusa Penida island in a pinch, but the quality of stuff you buy on the street won’t be guaranteed (personally, I’m not about to use a junky knockoff bag from a street vendor to protect my expensive camera gear).

It’s best to buy vetted products online!

  • Waterproof Bag: Essential for keeping your electronics safe on the boats. I brought a 30 liter bag and was able to fit my drone, tablet, camera, phone, and a bunch of other stuff inside. Everything was kept dry, even when I took the bag swimming a few times!
  • Waterproof Phone Pouch: Same as above, but these are for your phone only. Great if you don’t have other electronics and just need something small to protect your phone.
  • Snorkeling Gear: Many of the areas around Nusa Penida have nice corals and fish, and you won’t want to miss out on them. Snorkels and masks can be rented on the boat too, but if you plan to do multiple tours it’s more economical to bring your own gear.
  • Water Shoes: Save your feet some grief and wear water shoes! We got some cuts while walking to shore from the boats.

Nusa Penida Restaurants

The flurry of tourism is bringing lots of new restaurants and cafes to Nusa Penida, so now it has a bunch of great options!

Here are just a few of our restaurant recommendations:

  • Penida Colada : This was one of the first great restaurants on the island, with a big menu, beach vibes, good food and good presentation. Plus the name is cool!
  • Secret Penida Cafe : Another nice beachfront cafe in north Nusa Penida with Western and Indonesian food.
  • Penida Espresso : Best smoothie bowls on the island, and they’re very reasonably priced. Nice for a hot day.
  • Sweet Spot : One of the first indoor cafes on the island with air-conditioning! Great breakfast here.
  • The Chill : Ocean view pool with no minimum spend! Nice atmosphere with a wade-up bar and swings.
  • Amok Sunset : Fancy cliffside restaurant and bar with a pool, and great sunset views over Nusa Ceningan.
  • Warung Nengah Mesin : Mother’s cooking. Simply delicious. This is a local warung in the south part of the island, so it’s easy to reach from many of the major sights.

Nusa Penida Massage & Spa

Nusa Penida doesn’t have a lot of massage places compared to Bali, but I’m sure that’ll change over time as more tourists arrive. A foot massage is the perfect way to unwind after a full day of hiking or touring.

One of the best massage places in Nusa Penida would have to be Tejas Spa Warnakali , which has ocean views and is part of the Adiwana Warnakali Resort . You don’t need to be a guest at the resort to get a massage there, it’s open to the public.

For budget spa and massage places in Nusa Penida, you can check out Little Papaya , Juara Spa , and Dhipalia Massage . However, we haven’t tried these ones yet, so I can’t vouch for the quality.  

Other Nusa Penida Tips

  • Credit Cards: Almost all restaurants, hotels, and other charges in Penida are cash only. Best thing to do is bring plenty of cash with you from Bali. I also like to book my bigger purchases online (like hotels and drivers), that way I can pay for them with credit card and save my precious cash for those little roadside warungs and fresh coconuts!
  • ATM: Penida still has very few ATM options. The most reliable seems to be the Bank BRI booth at Sampalan , but it only lets you pull 1 million Rupiah per try.
  • Cell Service: Phone reception is strong with Telkomsel in most of the main areas of Penida, although you may lose service in some places while driving around because of the hilly terrain of the island.
  • WiFi: The WiFi situation in Penida used to be very poor compared to Bali, but it has improved dramatically in the last few years, so most hotels already have good WiFi that can be used for browsing, streaming videos, and sending emails.
  • Convenience Stores: There are lots of small mini marts, especially around the north shore, where you can buy cheap snacks, drinks, toiletries, sunscreen, and other such things. Sari Yoga Mart and Bagus Mart are two good options. However, their selection is much smaller than what you’ll find shopping in Bali.
  • Language: The locals in Nusa Penida speak Balinese with a distinct dialect, and although many of them also understand Indonesian, they’re not schooled in English (unlike in Bali). This means most Nusa Penidans only know a little bit of English that they’ve been able to pick up from tourists, so be patient and come prepared to explain things by pointing or showing pictures.
  • Mosquitoes: There is some dengue fever present in Nusa Penida, but it seems to be less common than in Bali, which is probably because of the drier climate in Penida. You won’t need bug spray for visiting the beaches or really any of the popular tourist sites, but we have seen mosquitoes at the Tembeling forest and Goa Giri Putri, as well as near some of the hotels in Nusa Penida. Thankfully there is no malaria in either Penida or Bali, so you don’t need to worry about anti-malarial medications or anything like that. The entire Bali province is certified malaria free according to this Lancet study from 2018.

Is Nusa Penida Safe?

Yes, Nusa Penida is very safe!

We live in Bali off and on. Violent crime is unheard of in Penida, and petty crime is also rare. Just take normal precautions. This is a tight knit community and the locals are very kind and hospitable.

Balinese are religious people, so please don’t disrespect the temples or local culture. And do be careful if you hike any of the steep cliffs like Kelingking Beach!

Nusa Penida Wildlife

Just like Bali, the island of Nusa Penida is full of wonderful wildlife, and if you’re lucky you might see some during your visit.

Animals living in Penida include bats, spiders, monitor lizards, and monkeys (Balinese macaques). You can see the monkeys at Kelingking Cliff and other places on the island. At the Goa Giri Putri cave , there are even two species of endangered purplish-orange crabs that live nowhere else on Earth except Nusa Penida island.

Nusa Penida is a bird sanctuary with many endangered bird species, including the very nice Bali starlings. Not many of these are left in the wild, so sightings are rare, but it’s hoped their numbers will improve.

Snakes in Nusa Penida include pythons, vipers, spitting cobras, and sea snakes. The only one I’ve seen here personally is the island pit viper (Trimeresurus insularis).

In the main tourist spots of Nusa Penida, you aren’t likely to ever see a snake. If you do, treat it with extreme caution! Venomous snakes in Bali can be very dangerous and there’s no anti-venom available in Penida.

One time I almost stepped on a very venomous island pit viper while hiking in Nusa Penida. My foot landed within inches of the snake, which was coiled up in the center of the path, but thankfully its head was turned away from me and it didn’t see how close my foot landed.

The triangular head and bright red tail on its green body was a giveaway. This was in a less traveled part of the island with lots of foliage. It wasn’t in a tourist area.

If you go snorkeling or scuba diving at Nusa Penida, you can get up close with the gentle manta rays and gigantic ocean sunfish (‘mola mola’), and all kinds of other colorful fish and coral. We’ve also seen sea turtles and dolphins in the waters around Penida.

Best Time To Visit

Nusa Penida has a drier and more sunny climate than mainland Bali, so any month is great for visiting.

The best time to visit Nusa Penida island really just depends on what you’re looking for.

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

From May to August, the temps are a lot cooler, and it’s more breezy and sunny. This is the high season so it’s a little more crowded.

Penida is 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), as this is when the island is covered with green foliage.

However, if you’re just looking for the nicest weather, May to August are the most comfortable months of the year.

Is Nusa Penida Worth It?

If you’ve kept reading this far and you still aren’t sure whether you should visit Pineda, then the answer is YES, Nusa Penida is definitely worth it!

This island has some of the best natural scenery anywhere in the Bali province, and some of the best views anywhere in Indonesia for that matter. It has great photo spots, cliffs, caves, beaches, hikes, water sports, and more.

There are even lots of nice hotels and restaurants popping up, and it’s becoming easier to get around the island. Overall, it’s well worth crossing the short distance from Bali to Nusa Penida in order to see all of the things this island has to offer.

How Long To Stay

Don’t be a day tripper. There are so many good things to do in Nusa Penida island. You need to spend at least 2 days to see the best highlights, even if you don’t do any snorkeling.

I would try to spend 3 or 4 days in the Nusa islands if possible, but you could easily fill a week, especially if you plan to do snorkeling or scuba diving.  

Nusa Penida Itinerary

Here’s what a sample 4-day itinerary for Nusa Penida could look like:

  • Day 1: West Nusa Penida . Visit Kelingking Beach , Paluang Cliff , Pererenan Cliff , Banah Cliff Point , and Tembeling Beach .
  • Day 2: East Nusa Penida . Visit Diamond Beach , Atuh Beach , Rumah Pohon Treehouse , Teletubbies Hill , and Goa Giri Putri Cave Temple .
  • Day 3: Snorkeling + West Penida . Take a half day snorkeling tour and then continue the land tour, visiting Angel’s Billabong, Broken Beach , and Smoke Beach.
  • Day 4: South Nusa Penida . Visit Suwehan Beach , Sekartaji Cliff (or Nyanyad Beach ), Manta Point Overlook , and Crystal Bay .

You can take a look at my full blog post about this Ultimate 4-Day Nusa Penida Itinerary for more detailed information and photos!  

Nusa Penida Hotels

Nusa lembongan & ceningan.

While you’re busy exploring Nusa Penida island, don’t forget there are also two other nice islands located next to it — Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, respectively.

The islands of Lembongan and Ceningan are connected to each other by a colorful yellow bridge, and even though they don’t have the epic cliffs and dramatic scenery of Penida, they’re still worth a visit for their nice hotels , seaside cafes, and laidback atmosphere.

It’s easy to go between the Nusa islands with a short and cheap boat ride. Some people even base themselves in Lembongan while touring Penida.

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.

This is so useful, thank you! We are going 28/29th Dec and wanted to do a private tour whilst we are there, do you have any suggestions? All I can find is day tours from Bali to Nusa Penida but we will already be there. Thank you in advance!

Hi! In that case, you could just book a private driver since you’ll already be on the island. They can take you to some of the best places on the island, or you can suggest places that you’d like to visit. Enjoy!

Communication with Bali Trip Mate is excellent, they respond quickly and answer all your questions. They are also very flexible and help you make the itinerary you want. They gave me a reduced rate without accommodations as I already had a hotel booked prior to finding their tour. There is a lot of driving on the tour though, it can be very tiresome. Also, when I was there, I had three different guides because there was a big religious ceremony and Mr Kadek wasn’t available each day. I wish I had known before hand that he wouldn’t be available. The guide the first day, he didn’t speak much English so that was a huge disappointment. He basically drove me around and showed me the sights. I had Mr Kadek the second day and he made the trip amazing. He was talkative and informative, plus he took amazing pictures of me. He also gave me some mangos at the end of my trip before returning to Bali, he is such a kind man. If I had him for the entire tour, they would get 5 stars across the board. I know there were conflicts so it’s not entirely their fault but I just wish I had known, I would’ve chosen different days to go.

Good tour with decent accommodations. our tour leader were also great
Bali was amazing , good food good mates
We couldn't fault our 3 day Nusa Penida experience with BaliTripMate Our lovely driver Diky picked us up from our hotel to catch a speed boat from Sanur to Nusa Penida. On arriving, we were greeted by our amazing Nusa Penida driver Kadek. BaliTripMate's exceptional itinerary included the incredible sights of the lesser known of Nusa Penida Island. We visited Kelingking Beach, Angel's Billabong, Broken Beach, Diamond Beach, Peguyanan and Tembeling Waterfalls, Goa Giri Putri Temple and Crystal Bay stopping for lunches at a local restaurants. Kadek was punctual to pick us up from our hotel and assisted in recommending times to start the day to best avoid larger crowds and take photos with the best position of the sun. Kadek made the trip fantastic. He was friendly, talkative, knowledgable and took amazing pictures of us - everything was seamless and we never felt rushed or pressured. Kadek was even kind enough to buy us traditional local meal to try for breakfast. Both Riki and Kadek went to great lengths to provide us with a memorable and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend a trip to Nusa Penida to explore the beautiful island and contacting Riki and the team at BaliTripMate for support planning your itinerary.

Nusa Penida East tour

Nusa Penida is too large to explore the entire island in just one day, but as part of your Bali holiday, a visit – even just for a day – is well worth the trip. The island is far less developed than Bali, full of natural wonders and jaw-dropping landscapes. A tour of the eastern side of the island covers temples, land and sea, for a variety of the island’s extraordinary sites.

nusa penida tour travel

After taking the ferry from Sanur Harbour, you’ll land on Nusa Penida and be greeted by your tour guide for the day. The first stop is – the Goa Giri Putri temple. This temple is truly beautiful, but it is in a cave, completely hidden from the outside world. After, head to lunch at stunning Atuh Beach, followed by a stop at Pulau Seribu, or “Thousand Island viewpoint.” This is one of the lesser-known sites in Penida, but you’ll see why it should be at the top of the list. The last stop is the comically named, Teletubbies Hill. Among the rolling hills, the jungles are so lush with greenery, they create a landscape of bright green hillsides, much like that of the home of the Teletubbies.

Please use caution, as falls are frequent for tourists who venture off paths and beyond the fences. Nusa Penid’s rugged terrain can also be dangerous if guidelines are not respected.

A complete travel guide to nusa penida: the blue paradise island.

The iconic Kelingking Beach in Nusa Penida with its unique T-rex shaped rock glowing at sunset.

Nusa Penida is undoubtedly the largest and the most popular of the three Nusa Islands located near mainland Bali. Home to the iconic T-Rex shaped cliff (aka Kelingking Beach), breath-taking landscapes, and some of the bluest waters in the world, it is a beautiful destination famous for its rare rock formations and incomparable natural beauty.

With a unique blend of incredible snorkelling and diving sites, untouched sceneries, and a myriad of Instagrammable spots, Nusa Penida barely needs any introduction today. Most people visiting Bali do at least a day trip to this blue paradise island, but after having spent a couple of nights there recently, I have to say that a day alone would not do it justice.

So, if you are curious about travelling to Nusa Penida and are wondering what all there is to see and do on the island, you are in the right place. In this guide, you will find everything from how to get there from Bali (and beyond), the best places to see in Penida Island, where to stay, and more. Read on for tips on making the most of your Nusa Penida trip!

Table of Contents

Know Before You Go

Currency: Indonesian Rupiah (RP or IDR).

Power sockets: Type C and Type F.

Area: Approximately 209 square kilometres. 

Language: Bahasa and Balinese are the most commonly spoken languages in Nusa Penida. English is also wide-spread in the tourist areas so everyone working in the industry can speak it well.

Entrance Fee: As of 2023, all tourists visiting Nusa Penida have to pay an entrance fee of 25k IDR for adults and 15k IDR for children. This fee will be collected upon your arrival in Nusa Penida and they only accept cash. It is intended for the betterment of infrastructure on the island and covers Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan too.

Where is Nusa Penida?

Nusa Penida is a moderately underdeveloped yet popular island, located off the southeast coast of Bali in Indonesia. It is approximately 25 km from the island of Bali, and 4 km and 5 km from Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, respectively.

Even though the Nusa Islands are separated from mainland Bali by a body of water known as the Badung Strait, all three of them still fall under the Bali province. This is why many first timers get confused when hearing that Nusa Penida is a part of Bali. It is a separate landmass that is under the administration of Bali but is often combined together as part of the overall Bali experience.

CG’s tip: Since all three Nusa Islands are located really close to each other (and Bali), it is possible to group all of them in one trip. Each one of them has its unique landscapes to offer and is worth visiting!

How to get to Nusa Penida?

The closest airport to Nusa Penida is located on the island of Bali. Whether you are looking to visit for a day trip or an overnight stay, the only way to get to Penida Island is by sea. Here are the best options of reaching Nusa Penida from Bali and its nearby islands:

Getting to Nusa Penida from Bali

This is the most popular option to get to Nusa Penida. You will need to purchase tickets for a fast boat that will drop you there directly, without making a stop in any other nearby island on the way. Speed boats like these typically take about 45 minutes to reach Penida from Bali and there are numerous companies to choose from.

There are a few active ports on both islands, but the most widely used is Sanur Harbour (Matahari Terbit Port) in Bali and Banjar Nyuh Harbour in Nusa Penida. The first boat from Sanur to Nusa Penida departs at 7:30 am and the last one leaves at around 5:00 pm. This schedule can change depending on the weather and the sea conditions, so make sure to always double check it closer to your date.

Until very recently, hopping on a boat from Bali involved wading into knee deep waters from the beach while carrying your luggage overhead. But the newly built fast boat terminal in Sanur has a well organised pier, boarding gates, and air-conditioned waiting areas. This is why now most boats to Nusa Penida depart from and arrive at this modern harbour.

Sanur Harbour is roughly an hour from popular areas like Ubud and Canggu. This travel time can vary depending on the traffic, so I would suggest leaving a little buffer to be safe. You can get there easily by either using your own transport or purchasing the fast boat tickets with a hotel pick-up included. Just remember to reach at least 45 minutes prior to your departure time to complete the check-in formalities. 

The price of the fast boat tickets to Penida varies across different companies and packages. You can buy your tickets online, via a local agent, or in person at the ticket counters at the port. Since this route to Nusa Penida is very common, I would suggest booking your tickets in advance as they tend to sell out pretty quickly (especially during the peak season).

12Go Asia is a great place to purchase your fast boat tickets if you are looking to get just that sorted. For tickets with hotel pick-up or sightseeing included, Klook and GetYourGuide have many highly rated packages. This one with a trip to the highlights of Nusa Penida along with a hotel pick-up and drop off is such a perfect and hassle-free option for day-trips.

In case you want to take your own scooter/car to Nusa Penida or are simply looking for a cheaper alternative to get there, it is also possible to take a public ferry from Padang Bai in Bali. The ferry operates twice a day from Monday to Saturday at 10 am and 2 pm. On Sundays, there is only one operational ferry at 10 am. 

The ferries from Padang Bai are often delayed, crowded and take much longer to reach. I would only recommend this option if you want to bring a vehicle across instead of saving money. The price difference isn’t significant enough and the safety protocols are up for debate.

CG’s tip: There may be no boats or ferries between Bali and Nusa Penida on important holidays such as Nyepi, Nyepi Laut, Galungan and Kuningan. Make sure to check the availability for these religious days in advance to avoid any cancellations or last-minute change of plans.

Getting to Nusa Penida from Nusa Lembongan / Nusa Ceningan

If you are staying in Nusa Lembongan or Nusa Ceningan first, you will have to take a local boat to get to Penida. Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan are connected by a Yellow Bridge and all the boats to Nusa Penida depart from there (on the Lembongan side). From Ceningan, simply cross the bridge until you reach Nusa Lembongan again and head to the make-shift ticket booth there.

The boats between Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida run quite frequently and there is generally one every hour from 7:30 am to 04:00 pm. During the peak season, the boats may operate until 30 minutes before sunset so you can enquire about the last slot at the ticket office when you first arrive. The ticket price is 100k IDR (6.5 USD) one way per person.

You can also book your tickets online in advance as seats are often limited. The local boats between Lembongan and Penida don’t usually follow a fixed timetable and instead depart when they are full with passengers (happens quickly). This is why it is important to arrive on time to claim your seat first and exchange your booking voucher for a physical ticket. 

The journey from Nusa Lembongan to Nusa Penida takes around 15 minutes and you’ll arrive at the Toya Pakeh (aka Banjar Nyuh) Harbour in Penida.

CG’s tip: The harbour in Nusa Lembongan isn’t as advanced as the one in Bali yet, so you will probably have to lug your suitcase on the sand. From what I know, there are also no docks in Lembongan right now. I would recommend you to wear flip-flops or any easy to remove footwear in case you have to go into the water to board.

Getting to Nusa Penida from Lombok / Gili Islands

While visiting Nusa Penida from Bali or the other Nusa Islands is more popular, it is also possible to get there from Lombok and Gili Islands. Lombok and Gili Islands are located further away from Penida (as compared to Bali), but there are still several fast boat companies that connect them. However, keep in mind that not all of them go direct.

Most speed boats from Lombok or Gili Islands make a stop in Bali before continuing to Nusa Penida. These ferries operate multiple times in a day and take roughly 2-4 hours to reach Penida, depending on the layover. You can either book the entire journey with the same company to avoid changing boats in Bali or book two separate tickets with a boat change.

Operating less frequently, there are also direct speed boats to Nusa Penida from both Lombok and Gili Islands that do not stop anywhere in between. These are slightly more expensive than the non-direct boats, but a great option if time and efficiency are important for you. 

The direct speed boat of Idola Express from Lombok to Nusa Penida takes 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach Penida. Idola Express also offers direct connection between Gili Islands and Nusa Penida, which takes 2 hours and 15 minutes each way. Both of these options can be easily booked online on 12Go Asia .

CG’s tip: It is also possible to fly from Lombok to Bali and then take a fast boat to Nusa Penida from there.

How to get around Nusa Penida?

Nusa Penida is an island with modest overall infrastructure. Public transportation in Nusa Penida is pretty much non-existent and online cab aggregators like GoJek and Grab aren’t operational there as of yet. The island is also bigger than it looks with attractions spread out from one end of the island to the other. This is why it takes forever to go anywhere there!

Typically, most boats arrive in Nusa Penida at the Banjar Nyuh harbour on the northwest corner of the island. Whether you are staying overnight or just visiting on a day trip, you will need to use one of these ways to head to your final destination:

Rent a scooter

Renting a scooter is the cheapest way of getting around Nusa Penida. You can reserve it online and have it ready for your arrival or simply get it from one the many vendors at the harbour. It is also possible to rent a scooter in Penida with your hotel or Airbnb. The price of scooter rental in Nusa Penida ranges from 70-100K IDR per day and gas is also economical. 

Although an inexpensive and flexible option, this is not suitable for everyone and I will only recommend it to advanced drivers who are used to the island’s terrain. The roads in Nusa Penida are no joke and deadly accidents happen there every single day. Being a mountainous region, there are a lot of winding roads too with little visibility of what’s ahead. 

Popular landmarks like Angel’s Billabong and Kelingking Beach have particularly broken and bumpy paths so you have to be extra careful there. If you are a confident scooter driver and end up renting it, just make sure you always wear a helmet when driving, honk before blind turns, and have a valid travel insurance that covers scooter rentals and accidents. 

CG’s tip: There are not many petrol pumps close to the popular tourist places in Nusa Penida as of yet. In fact, I barely saw any after going deeper into the island from the harbour. If you are staying close by, always fill your tank before leaving on an excursion or make a note of the petrol pumps on your route.

Get a taxi / shuttle

This option is good for short one-way transports. As soon as you get off your boat at the harbour, you will find many taxi drivers offering a ride to your hotel or a desired drop-off point. If you are planning to rent a scooter afterwards with your hotel or simply have a lot of luggage, you can get one of these taxis to go to your accommodation comfortably. 

These taxis are present throughout the busy areas by the harbour. In case you happen to go to any café or restaurant close by later in the day, you can find a taxi there as well by waiting on the side of the road. This option isn’t suitable if you are far out as there may not be many empty taxis deeper inside the island.

Some hotels also provide paid shuttle services to nearby places which are great for short journeys. The hotel that I stayed in had this service and we used it many times to go to day clubs, cafes and restaurants. They also provided pick-up services to bring us back to the hotel which was perfect for when we didn’t have a private car after sightseeing hours. 

CG’s tip: If you are going out after 7 pm, then ensure you have a way of coming back to your hotel before leaving. There aren’t many people outside in Nusa Penida after dark so it is difficult to find taxis at that hour. I always coordinated with my hotel before leaving and they sent a shuttle for pick up whenever we were done.

Book a private car with a driver

This is the best way to explore Nusa Penida. Since the roads there are quite dangerous for two-wheelers and all the tourist spots are spread out, it takes much longer than anticipated to go anywhere on the island. You will be spending a lot of your time in transit so having a comfortable ride is key for a happier holiday, especially under the scorching sun.

You can find a driver at the harbour once you get to Nusa Penida, ask your hotel or guesthouse for a recommendation, or book online in advance. Depending on your Nusa Penida itinerary, it is possible to customise your booking with the driver and hire for any number of days or hours. This option of private car with a driver in Nusa Penida is highly rated.

The drivers in Penida charge per destination rather than by the hour so you will still have plenty of flexibility in terms of how much time you spend in a particular place. An experienced driver will also act as your tour guide and will tell you a lot about the island’s interesting history. Most drivers that I came across in Nusa Penida spoke good English.

Personally, I booked an all-inclusive 100% custom Nusa Penida tour with Putu of Bali Travel Monkey and couldn’t be happier. This included hotel pick-up and drop off in Bali, return ferry tickets, a private car with English speaking driver in Nusa Penida for 2 and a half days with pick-up and drop off at the port for 135 USD per person for two people. You can message him on Instagram with your itinerary to get a quote.

What is the best time to visit Nusa Penida?

Similar to Bali, Nusa Penida also has two seasons – wet and dry. The best time to visit the island is during the dry season, which typically runs from April to October. During this time, most days are sunny, the sea is calm, and the climate is hot and humid. These conditions are ideal for enjoying the pristine turquoise waters on the iconic beaches of Nusa Penida.

Having said that, it is also the busiest time of the year. June, July and August are the most crowded months in Penida. If you want to avoid peak season, I would recommend visiting just before or after that. I went at the end of May and it was perfect. The ferries still had available tickets and the traffic wasn’t that bad either (by Nusa Penida standards at least).

The rainy season, on the other hand, is from November to March. Nusa Penida sees comparatively fewer tourists during this period so prices of hotels and transportation are much cheaper. However, the sea can be very rough and it often rains heavily, making it more challenging to reach and explore Penida. 

Since the majority of the must-see places in Nusa Penida involve a multitude of stairs, I would not recommend visiting it during the wet season. The steps are already slippery and uneven in a lot of spots, so I do not even want to imagine them during or after a heavy downpour. If you do go, consider hiring a private car instead of exploring on a scooter.

How many days are enough for Nusa Penida?

Most travellers visiting Nusa Penida mainly come to see Kelingking Beach or Manta Rays on a day trip from Bali. But, in my opinion, that is equivalent to barely scratching the surface.

Nusa Penida has so many beautiful beaches and viewpoints that a day alone can never be enough. Not to forget, it takes a lot of time to get from one spot to another in Nusa Penida, particularly during the peak hours when the island is full of day trippers. I would suggest spending at least two full days in Penida as a bare minimum.

If you have more time, three full days are more ideal for first timers, especially if you want to do snorkelling and diving as well. This will give you enough opportunity to see marine life, while also checking out all the popular places in Nusa Penida as well as exploring some hidden gems.

CG’s tip: I spent two full days in Nusa Penida and was able to see all the highlights on my list. However, I would have liked to have an extra day or two to check out some other spots as well. Three full days would have indeed been ideal.

Best Nusa Penida Day Tours

Not everyone has the luxury of time to be able to stay overnight in Penida. So, while I do not recommend going on a day trip to Nusa Penida, it is better than not being able to go there at all. In this case, I would suggest opting for one of the guided tours below to make the most of your time:

Nusa Penida Small Group Trip by Speed Boat: Kelingking Beach is the most famed spot in Nusa Penida and this day tour will take you directly there. It is one of the best rated tours for Penida if you want to see the west side of the island on your trip. This free-cancellation tour will also take you to Broken Beach, Angel’s Billabong and Crystal Bay. Ferry tickets and entrance fees are included and you can even opt for hotel pick-up and drop off in Bali. 

Day Trip to East Nusa Penida, Atuh & Diamond Beach: If you have been dreaming about visiting the incredible Diamond Beach instead, then this day tour to the east side of Nusa Penida is perfect for you. You’ll begin your trip at Thousand Islands viewpoint and continue onto the Instagram famous Rumah Pohon Tree House before heading to Atuh and Diamond Beach (they are next to each other). This tour also comes with a hotel pick-up and drop off in Bali.

Swim with Manta Rays in Nusa Penida: Nusa Penida is widely known for its marine life, so you cannot go wrong by opting for a snorkelling day trip. This tour will take you to three different snorkelling locations and you can end the day by going on a Mangrove tour by a kayak or a stand-up paddleboard. Hotel pick-up and drop off, fast boat transfers, snorkelling equipment and lunch on a beach are included in the price.

Where to stay in Nusa Penida?

Most of the beautiful places to see in Nusa Penida are located on the eastern and the western side of the island. But, large stretches of land near those are still uninhabited and you will barely find any good restaurants and cafes around. This is why I highly recommend not staying inland and instead finding a hotel or guesthouse close to the harbour areas.

Banjar Nyuh Harbour is the most frequently used port in Nusa Penida. It is located in the northern part of the island, which is home to several cafes and restaurants. Irrespective of what your preferences and budget may be, you should definitely stick to this area for your accommodation (unless you are going for an experiential stay somewhere else) in Penida.

I booked the Semabu Hills Hotel Nusa Penida for three nights and absolutely loved the location. It is a 4 star property situated on a quiet hill close to Banjar Nyuh (Toya Pakeh) Harbour, offering unobstructed views of the island and the sea beyond. This hotel has mixed reviews online, but personally, I didn’t have any negative experience during my stay.

Semabu Hills Hotel has two infinity pools and a decent on-site restaurant. A lot of the good places to eat on the island are located close by and the hotel even offers an on request pick-up and drop-off shuttle services to go there. I found it really useful for when we didn’t have our driver or any other mode of transportation with us. The area near Kutampi Beach is also nice to stay in.

Best places to see in Nusa Penida

Penida island has a wealth of incredible places to offer. So now that you have all the practical information about visiting this blue paradise island, here are all the best places to add to your Nusa Penida itinerary:

Kelingking Beach

The iconic Kelingking Beach in Nusa Penida with its unique T-rex shaped rock and white sand beach in the morning light.

Kelingking Beach is undoubtedly the most famous place in Nusa Penida. Home to the iconic cliff that truly looks like a Tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur sitting over the ocean, it is one of the most photographed spots on the island. In fact, pictures from the Kelingking Viewpoint are what really made Nusa Penida popular in the first place.

Kelingking Viewpoint is only a short walk from the parking, while the beach requires an intense climb down. If you have limited time or cannot be bothered to complete the hike to go down to the beach, then fret not. There are several stunning viewpoints along the edge of the cliffs, and taking pictures from there is one of the best things to do in Nusa Penida.

Most people visiting Kelingking Beach either just see it from the Kelingking Viewpoint or descend down a few flights of stairs to get a better look. In case you want to make your way to the beach, please note that the last section of the hike doesn’t have stairs and it can be very challenging. I would only recommend it to experienced hikers visiting in proper footwear.

Since Kelingking Beach is a very popular spot, it can get really crowded during the day with both day trippers and overnight tourists. To experience it without the crowds, going at sunrise is key to truly appreciate its natural beauty in peace. Sunset is also a nice time to visit as the sky turns all shades of orange and you can see the setting sun in the distance.

CG’s tip: There are often a lot of monkeys at the cliffside of Kelingking Viewpoint and near the stairs going down to the beach. Be careful if you are carrying food or any other loose items on you.

Opening hours: All day. Entrance fees: Free.

Diamond Beach

Diamond Beach, one of the best places to see in Nusa Penida, captured from a viewpoint at the top of the cliff with a great view of diamond shaped rocks and the pristine white sand beach.

With a pristine white sand beach, crystal clear turquoise sea, and unique rock formations, Diamond Beach is the most beautiful beach in Nusa Penida. It is located in the eastern part of the island and is known for its glistening diamond shaped rocks, rising from the shallow azure water. The landscape here is truly one of a kind and shouldn’t be missed!

When visiting Diamond Beach, you can either admire this postcard perfect paradise from the viewpoint at the top or make your way down to the beach. The climb down to Diamond Beach isn’t as difficult as the one at Kelingking Beach, but there are still some steep and slippery parts here as well.

Not to forget, the last bit of the path also doesn’t have steps yet, so you will have to hold onto a rope to climb down and back up over small rocks. There is only one rope for people going up and down so it can get busy during peak hours. The climb takes roughly 20 minutes each way and you should only go during low tide.

Charu Goyal of Travel with CG walking down the steps to Diamond Beach while holding a rope and enjoying the view of limestone cliffs in the distance.

Diamond Beach isn’t ideal for swimming and can be dangerous, especially during high tide. The ocean on this part of the island is very rough and unpredictable. Plus, the waves often come with corals and small rocks that can end up being painful if you are not cautious. There have been many accidents at Diamond Beach in recent years.

The viewpoint, on the other hand, is easily accessible from the parking area and has a breath-taking view of Diamond Beach. If you are not an experienced hiker and swimmer, I would recommend seeing the beach from above and then going to the nearby Atuh Beach for a swim instead. 

Opening hours: 07:00 – 18:00, every day except religious holidays. Entrance fee: 25K IDR per person.

Atuh Beach and its colourful day beds visible from a viewpoint on top of a cliff with a beautiful bamboo swing.

Situated right next to Diamond Beach, Atuh Beach is a crescent-shaped bank of powdery white sand with crystal clear waters. It is remarkably known for a natural rock arch in the ocean that looks like a big elephant (or a stiletto according to locals). This arch looks particularly beautiful at sunrise when the sun is right in between the arches.

Atuh Beach can be accessed from two different parking lots, one on each side of the cliff. If you enter from the southern parking area, or simply follow the direction for Diamond Beach on maps, you can see both Diamond and Atuh Beaches in one go. These two beaches are located on two different sides of a mountain and it is easy to move around between them.

I personally recommend seeing Diamond Beach from the viewpoint first and then continuing onto Atuh Beach for a swim. You will also be required to climb down several flights of stairs to get to Atuh Beach from the top of the cliff, but this path is much easier with proper steps. The only drawback is that there are no ropes or handrails to hold onto.

Atuh Beach is more suitable for swimming in general, although there can be high currents here too. If you don’t feel like going into the water, there are also several sunbeds and small make-shift shops selling coconut water and some Indonesian food on the beach. It is also possible to rent towels on Atuh Beach for a small fee.

Opening hours: 07:00 – 18:00, every day except religious holidays. Entrance fee: If you are visiting Diamond Beach on the same day, you don’t have to buy a separate ticket for Atuh Beach when entering from the southern parking lot. Otherwise, it is 25K IDR per person.

Rumah Pohon Tree House

Rumah Pohon Tree House in Nusa Penida at sunrise.

As one of the most famous Instagram places in Nusa Penida, Rumah Pohon Tree House is no stranger to anyone visiting the island. Also known as Nusa Penida Tree House, it is a beautiful spot offering an unobstructed view of the Diamond Beach and its unique rock formations from a different perspective. 

Rumah Pohon Tree House is located on the eastern part of Nusa Penida as well, close to Diamond and Atuh Beaches. Until recently, this tree house used to be a humble Airbnb with nothing but a small mattress on the floor and a plastic fan. But due to its increasing popularity on Instagram, the management has converted it into solely a photo location now.

To get to Rumah Pohon Tree House, you will have to climb down several steps from the parking lot in true Nusa Penida fashion. The stairs here are steep, but the overall climb isn’t too bad. It will take you around 15 minutes to reach the treehouse. There are also a few other photo points along the way, but I would recommend stopping there on your way back instead.

Charu Goyal of Travel with CG sitting on the make-shift wooden steps of Rumah Pohon Tree House in Nusa Penida at sunrise and admiring the view of a golden sky and Diamond Beach.

Ever since the tree house has become popular, there are long queues of people wanting to take photos with it. The caretakers at Rumah Pohon are surprisingly organised and they will hand over a ticket with your slot in the queue upon payment of the photo fee. Every person only gets two minutes to take pictures, and they will even time you with a stopwatch.

Honestly speaking, it can feel a tad expensive for a few timed photos, but the view from there is so worth it. Besides, sunrise and sunset aren’t that busy as of yet. If you visit on a day trip, there can be more than an hour long wait during the afternoon.

Opening hours: sunrise to sunset. Entrance fee: 5K IDR for parking + 15K IDR for entry + 75K IDR for photos at the tree house. There is also additional fee for photos at the optional other spots along the way too.

Thousand Islands Viewpoint

If you would rather not pay extra or wait to take photos at Rumah Pohon Tree House, simply continue up the cliff to this viewpoint instead. Providing a stunning view of the surrounding islands and the blue ocean, Thousand Islands Viewpoint is one of the best lookout spots in Nusa Penida. If you are lucky, you may even spot some dolphins and manta rays from here!

Since Thousand Islands Viewpoint is located in the same area as the tree house above, you can easily visit both spots at the same time. There is no extra charge for taking photos here (at least not yet) and it is often less busy too. The sunrise from here is really spectacular, but the midday sun brings out the best blue hues in the water.

Thousand Islands Viewpoint is also known as Pulau Seribu. Other than a few mesmerising vantage points, there is also a small shrine at the top here. Make sure to wear appropriate shoes and carry water for the way. The ascend can be more exhausting in the heat.

Opening hours: sunrise to sunset Entrance fee: 5K IDR for parking + 15K IDR for entry.

Peguyangan Waterfall

Peguyangan Waterfall is one of the underrated spots in Nusa Penida offering spectacular cliffside views. It is located on the southeast coast of the island and is also known as Guyangan Waterfall. You may have seen photos from its iconic blue steps that look like a stairway to heaven. These stairs lead to a pilgrimage site and some natural infinity pools.

If you are afraid of heights, Peguyangan Waterfall might not be the place for you. The climb down on the 150-metre iron blue stairs that are winding down the side of the cliff is steep and somewhat dangerous. Plus, many parts of the staircase have really narrow planks and it can often be slippery as well. I would not recommend visiting here with kids in any case.

Even though the name of this place suggests a waterfall, there is really none here. Instead, you will find multiple cascading springs of water flowing directly into the Indian ocean. There are also incredible plunge pools at the bottom of the stairs that look directly into the sea. If you are feeling adventurous, you should definitely hike down to check them out.

Peguyangan Waterfall has a small sacred temple at the bottom of the blue stairs for water blessing. You will be required to wear a sarong here even if you do not plan to go inside the temple. You can either bring your own or rent it at the entrance for a small fee. The locals praying here are friendly and are happy to explain the ritual if you are interested.

Opening hours: All day Entrance fee: Free, albeit a small parking charge of 5K IDR.

Angel’s Billabong

A natural pool between two tall, rugged cliffs overlooking blue ocean water and a small island in the distance.

Angel’s Billabong is a natural infinity pool, perfectly sitting in the middle of two cliffs in western Nusa Penida. This unique phenomenon is formed by volcanic rocks and overlooks the majestic ocean. The water at Angel’s Billabong is so incredibly clear that you can see the surface, even from far away. It truly is a mesmerising sight to behold!

While the pool at Angel’s Billabong looks inviting, it is not actually allowed to swim there anymore. The water currents here are known to be very unpredictable, especially during high tides. There have been a few accidents where people were hurt by the surrounding rocks or swept to the ocean due to the sudden waves. But, it is still worth going for the viewpoint.

The last stretch of the road to Angel’s Billabong has many potholes and is very bumpy. So, if you can, I recommend visiting here in a private car instead of a scooter. The walk from the parking lot isn’t bad and you can easily get there in a few minutes. Make sure to bring your camera with you and arrive early before it gets too busy.

Opening hours: All day. Entrance fee: Free, except for a small parking charge.

Broken Beach

Broken Beach is another unmissable spot in Nusa Penida, located next to Angel’s Billabong. It is a circular bay, famous for its magnificent natural stone archway formed by centuries of relentless ocean waves and strong winds. The unique landscape here is a prime example of the artistic ability of nature. So much so, that every sight has an awe-inspiring view!

If you look at the bird’s eye perspective in the picture above, you will notice that the cove of Broken Beach actually looks enclosed. But, once you are there, you will realise how high the arch really is. It is not possible to access the beach here because of the high cliffs. But, some boat companies do drive past the arch when the tide is right.

Broken Beach is also known as Pasih Uug. This fascinating landmark is home to a diverse marine life as well. While walking from or towards Angel’s Billabong, you may spot schools of fish and manta rays swimming in the ocean. There are some warungs and shops selling drinks and snacks on one side of the cove too. 

Crystal Bay

Crystal Bay is a popular beach with comparatively calm waters, making it a great place for swimming and snorkelling in Nusa Penida. If you are looking for a beautiful beach on the island that is easily accessible, Crystal Bay should definitely be on your list. The walk from the parking lot to the beach is just a few minutes with no stairs at all. 

Crystal Bay is located on the west side of Nusa Penida and is only a 30-minute drive from the main harbour. Due to the short distance and comfortable walk to the beach, it tends to get very crowded during the day. There are many small shops selling food and drinks at Crystal Bay. You can even rent a sunbed for a few hours, but they can get booked out when busy.

The marine life at and near Crystal Bay is really good. Most snorkelling tours in Nusa Penida start from here. The water quality is nice too and you can easily spot healthy corals, turtles, schools of fishes, manta rays and more. Make sure to go early to avoid the crowds. Or, later in the day if you want to relax and watch the sunset. It is supposed to be stunning from here!

Opening hours: All day. Entrance fee: Free, except for a small parking change. Renting a day bed or snorkelling equipment is also at an additional cost.

If you are looking for a less crowded beach in Penida, Gamat Bay is for you. The road to get here isn’t the best, but you will be rewarded with a quiet beach with white sand, clear blue water, and rows of palm trees. Gamat Bay is also one of the best spots for snorkelling in Nusa Penida so you can expect to encounter beautiful marine life upon visiting here.

Most snorkelling tours starting from Crystal Bay often stop at Gamat Bay and Manta Point, but you may not get a chance to enjoy the beach on those. Gamat Bay is a great spot for turtle sightings and some people even end up seeing them close to the shore. You can rent snorkels at the beach and just go into the water if you like. It is also possible to free dive there.

Gamat Bay can be reached by both sea and road. If you are coming by car or a scooter, the walk from the parking lot to the beach isn’t hard, but a bit steep. There is a small restaurant selling good food too and the staff even looks after the cleanliness of the beach. With plenty of day beds and few tourists, you can calmly spend the day enjoying the view here.

Opening hours: All day. Entrance fee: Free.

Goa Giri Putri Temple

If you have seen your fair share of natural wonders and beaches, then worry not. Nusa Penida has some cultural sites too, out of which this one is definitely worth checking out. Goa Giri Putri Temple or Pura Goa Giri Putri Cave is a sacred religious Hindu temple located inside a limestone cave. It is known for its spiritual nature and captivating architecture.

To enter the temple, you will have to climb up a steep set of stairs and then squeeze through a narrow opening in the rock to go inside the cave. The interiors of the cave are surprisingly vast and there are many Balinese Hindu shrines and offerings all around. The atmosphere of this place is especially exceptional.

Similar to the temples in Bali, all visitors are required to wear a sarong before entering Goa Giri Putri Temple. You can rent it from a small shop near the parking area for 5K IDR or bring your own. It is also possible to purchase a sarong from there if you like. Once inside, you can choose to either participate in the traditional ceremonies or simply observe. 

The exit is through another side of the cave and is slightly easier with concrete steps. If you have enough time, I think Goa Giri Putri Temple is worth checking out for a different Nusa Penida experience. The island has a rich cultural heritage and this spot provides a great insight into it.

Opening hours: 7:00 am – 05:00 pm. Entrance fee: Donation based.

Teletubbies Hill

Nusa Penida is not just about epic coastlines and dramatic cliffs. Named after a popular TV show, Teletubbies Hill is a unique attraction that shows just how diverse the landscape of this island really is. When visiting here, you will find a large area filled with rolling hills that are reminiscent of its namesake in the show. They look especially green in the wet season!

Teletubbies Hill is located in the central part of the island and is worth stopping for a while if you are in the area. This place is not that famous yet, so you will not come across many people or warungs here. But, I am not certain if it is worth a visit if you are staying far away. Although, if you have a drone, you can get some really beautiful pictures and videos here.

Paluang Cliff

Located only a few minutes from the jam-packed Kelingking Beach, Paluang Cliff is a serene viewpoint that overlooks the other side of the T-rex. It has several photo points from which you can get a different perspective of Kelingking and the surrounding turquoise blue ocean. The place is nice to admire the unique rock formation of this area and snap photos at ease.

At the moment, there are 4-5 installations like a boat and bird’s nest for photos at Paluang Cliff. But, this number may increase in the future when this spot starts to get more visitors. The photo point is only a short walk from the parking area and you can access it without any issues. However, be careful when visiting as there is barely any protection on the cliffside.

Opening hours: Sunrise to sunset. Entrance fee: 30K IDR per person.

Banah Cliff Point

Banah Cliff Point is another note-worthy viewpoint to add to your Nusa Penida list. It is a beautiful hidden gem offering a breath-taking view of the ocean and some unique rock formations. If you are looking to enjoy the scenery of Nusa Penida with only a handful of people around, then this is the place for you.

The road to reach Banah Cliff Point is not yet paved, and can be dangerous in some parts. If you are planning to visit here, I would recommend either having a local drive you on a scooter or hiring a private car. You can also walk the last stretch of the road but it will take you a while.

Tembeling Beach and Forest

A two person's swing at Tembeling Beach and Forest looking out to the sea in Nusa Penida.

Tembeling Beach and Forest is an off-beat site in Nusa Penida and one of my absolute favourites. Accessed through a dense lush green forest, it is a beautiful place where you will find natural swimming pools, a secluded beach, and a couple of Instagrammable swings looking out to the ocean. It truly is a gem worth visiting!

To reach Tembeling Beach and Forest, I would recommend you to park your vehicle at the parking lot and hail a motorbike taxi. The path from thereon is very steep with lots of rocks so it is not advisable to drive yourself further. The locals know the way really well and are trained to drive people back and forth safely. You can also choose to walk if you like.

Once you get to the end of the trail, you will have to climb down several steps to go to the pools. This last bit has concrete staircase all the way, which are in fairly good condition. This section is also inside the forest so you will have plenty of shade from the trees. Once you reach the bottom of the steps, you will be welcomed by the first natural pool.

After having a look at the first pool, make your way ahead until you find yourself near the other natural pool. This one overlooks the ocean and is much better to take a dip or relax in. Tembeling Beach is only a few steps away from there. If you have more time, don’t forget to also check out the small beach on the other side of the cove too.

Opening hours: All day. Entrance fee: Free except 75k IDR per person for optional motorbike taxi. 

Suwehan Beach

Last but not the least, Suwehan Beach is one of the best kept secrets of Nusa Penida. With a picturesque strip of white sand, crystal clear turquoise water, and a rare cone shaped rock in the sea, it is a scenic paradise far away from the typical crowds. I didn’t get a chance to go there personally yet, but it looks like one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

The road to get to Suwehan Beach, like many other hidden gems in Nusa Penida, is bad. But the pristine serenity of the place more than makes up for it once you are there. The access to the beach involves climbing down many concrete stairs and you may encounter an occasional monkey or two on your way. If so, simply carry on ahead and try not to engage.

Suwehan Beach can only be enjoyed during low tide, so always make sure to check the current before going. The beach can completely disappear when the tides are high and you don’t want to descend all the way there to find that. If you are unsure, just ask the local warung owner at the top of the cliff.

Opening hours: All day. Entrance fee: 5K IDR.

Apart from all these places to visit in Nusa Penida, the island of course has many other spots. If you are staying for longer or simply want more suggestions – Nyanyad Beach, Batu Siha Beach, Seganing Waterfall, Saren Cliff Viewpoint and Abangan Hills Viewpoint are some places that I also have on my list and couldn’t visit yet. The Toya Pakeh Beach next to the harbour is also nice.

Where to eat in Nusa Penida?

Nusa Penida has a lot of nice cafes and restaurants to eat at. But, most of them are close to the harbour areas instead of the tourist attractions. If you are also a foodie who likes to eat good food whilst travelling, here are some places that I would recommend checking out in Penida:

Sunny Cafe Penida: This small cafe is conveniently located next to the Banjar Nyuh Harbour. They have a huge plant-based menu along with vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. We stopped here for a quick lunch before our boat back to Bali and were pleasantly surprised. I especially loved their cheesy mozzarella sandwich (veggie version) and vegan tacos!

Penida Colada Beach Bar: This is a casual beachfront bar and restaurant serving both international and Indonesian delicacies. We went here for dinner and absolutely loved the vibe. They have live music every weekend and the staff look after you so nicely. The place is also made beautifully and the food is delicious too. I would love to go again during the day!

Singabu Sand Beach: It is a tastefully made beach club in the same area as all the above spots. We went here on our driver’s recommendation for lunch and although I loved the vibe of the place, the food was a hit or a miss. Most of the dishes that we ordered lacked flavour, but their Nasi Goreng was one of the best I have ever had! I would probably go back to relax in their beach club looking out to the sea, but not necessarily for the food itself.

Sushi Island: Sushi Island is a family-run Japanese restaurant serving good quality food, not too far from the main harbour. Everything that I tried here tasted really fresh and delicious. In fact, I was not expecting to find good Japanese food in Nusa Penida at all, but Sushi Island proved me wrong. Made and his family are really kind and serve such good quality food for an affordable price. The vegetable gyoza and avocado rolls were my favourite here!

Amarta Penida: Formerly known as Greenkubu, this place should definitely be on your list if you are looking to enjoy a beautiful view. They also have a really nice pool, lots of different seating areas, and a picturesque gate that is reminiscent of all the iconic sites in Bali like the Gate of Heaven. I didn’t find many great vegetarian options at Amarta, but absolutely loved seeing the sunset from here. 

Secret Penida Restaurant & Bar: This is another nice beachfront restaurant in Nusa Penida that you can spend the day relaxing at. They open from 7 am – 11 pm every day, so you can visit here any time of the day as per your choice. Although, I have heard that the sunsets from Secret Penida are particularly spectacular. The menu offers mostly western options.

Apart from these, there are also many other places that I had on my list but didn’t have the time to visit yet. I would love to go back and check out Cactus Beach Club, Vegan Soul and Kitchen (only accessible by scooters/on foot), The Chill Penida, Amok Sunset, Organica Fresh and Tasty Food someday.

Map of the best places in Nusa Penida

To make your time in Nusa Penida more convenient, I have also created a custom map containing all the best places on the island for you. I have used three different colours – blue for west Nusa Penida, orange for east Nusa Penida, and green for restaurants/bars. This way you can club places that are closer in one outing and plan your trip with greater ease.

Just click on the bracket in the upper right corner and the map will automatically open in Google Maps on your device. You can leave it open to come back to it later or share with friends and family. 

Best day trips from Nusa Penida

Even though there is plenty to see and do in Nusa Penida itself, the other Nusa Islands are so close that it would be a crime not to visit if you have the time. Both Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan are remarkable destinations only a short ferry ride away from Penida. Here is how you can make the most of your time in each:

Nusa Lembongan

Located a mere 15 minutes away, Nusa Lembongan is another slice of paradise with beautiful beaches, serene coastal areas and surreal landscapes. I would typically suggest staying here overnight in order to explore the length and the width of the island, but it is possible to see the highlights in a few hours. There are many tours offering this day trip !

One of the most popular spots to see in Nusa Lembongan is the Devil’s Tears. It is a more dramatic version of Angel’s Billabong where you can admire intense waves crashing over the rocks. Another must-visit site is Mangrove Forest with its dense variety of wildlife, birds and fishes. Tour it by gliding through the waterways in a traditional jukung boat.

If you have more time, you can spend the day relaxing at one of the beaches in Nusa Lembongan. Mushroom Bay, Jungut Batu Beach and Dream Beach are some of the most visited beaches on the island.

Nusa Ceningan

Many tourists skip Nusa Ceningan in favour of the bigger Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida, but this little paradise has so much to offer. Plus, you can easily walk from one end of the island to the other in a few hours so it is an ideal destination for a day trip. Trust me, you would be surprised to discover how much beauty there is in this tiny island!

Begin your day by crossing the iconic Yellow Bridge from Lembongan to Ceningan. This is the only way into the island, and you can do it by foot or on a scooter. Once there, make your way to the Blue Lagoon – the most popular place with surreal blue water. It is not allowed to go in the water due to the waves, but the nearby Mahana Point is great for cliff jumping.

For the rest of the day, you can spend your time strolling around, relaxing at one of many beach bars, or sunbathing at the beach. Secret Beach, My Beach Ceningan, and Song Tepo Beach are some of the best spots.

Tips for visiting Nusa Penida

  • Always carry enough cash with you. Most ticket offices, scooter rentals, warungs , and small cafes/restaurants in Nusa Penida only accept cash. Penida island doesn’t have many functional ATMs either so it can become quite challenging to withdraw money there at the last minute. Big hotels, cafes, restaurants and bars on the other hand generally have card machines.
  • Many blogs online recommend exchanging your currency to Indonesian Rupiah before arriving into Nusa Penida as you will supposedly not find good exchange rates there. It may have been true at some point, but I came across many exchange rate shops near the Banjar Nyuh Harbour offering similar rates as Bali. You should still exchange from beforehand to be safe, but just know that it is also possible to do it in Penida upon arrival. 
  • The roads in Nusa Penida are really bad, especially near Broken Beach and Angel’s Billabong. It is not the place to test your scooter skills if you are not a confident rider. Please consider shelling out a little extra in this case and hire a car for your safety. 
  • If you are going to drive a motorbike or scooter, note that it is better to not overtake four-wheelers and instead wait on the side if you see one approaching. The local car drivers are known to drive rashly and the narrow roads there sometimes have questionable ends. Some parts of the island do not have any safety barricades on the coastal roads.
  • Download offline maps beforehand. Although Telkomsel has good coverage in most parts of Nusa Penida, Wi-Fi and cellular data aren’t very reliable on the island. If you are planning to drive yourself around, I would recommend saving offline maps on your phone just in case.

Lush green hills with a field of palm trees and small houses in between them.

  • There are barely any street lights in the majority of the island so driving before sunrise and after sunset can be tricky. Try to only cover short distances during this time or go with a local. The roads in Nusa Penida aren’t your best friend even in broad daylight so I would not recommend driving in the dark in any case.
  • It can take a lot of time to cover short distances. This is especially true when the first few ferries start arriving in Penida in the morning and the last ones are about to leave the island in the afternoon. All the tourists that visit on a day trip usually arrive and leave at the same time. This results in a major peak in traffic on the roads as they often have similar itineraries, making them all go in the same direction.
  • Crowded can be an understatement. Nusa Penida has seen a HUGE increase in the number of tourists in recent years so every popular place on the island will be buzzing with people. If you want to enjoy it in a better environment, consider staying overnight and exploring outside of the day tour hours.
  • The fast boats from Nusa Penida to Bali can depart promptly or ahead of schedule, so it is advisable to arrive at least 45 minutes before your departure time. Once you are there, go to the ticket booth of your boat company and get an actual ticket along with a lanyard. Your seat is guaranteed once you have these, and then you can follow people with the same lanyards towards your boat when it is time to board.
  • This goes without saying, but please be considerate when doing any water activities in Nusa Penida and do not touch the corals. Also, make sure you wear reef friendly sunscreen and do not litter anywhere on the island. Nusa Penida is a natural paradise that should be well taken care of.
  • Last but not the least, say no to single use plastic bottles. Many sites like Diamond Beach hand over small plastic bottles to all tourists, which end up littering this otherwise incredible location. Bring your own water when you are out and about on the island and educate the locals on the best environment friendly practices.

What to pack for Nusa Penida?

  • A camera! Nusa Penida is one of the most photogenic islands in Indonesia (and probably the world), so you would be crazy to travel all the way there and not capture its beauty. Whether you are comfortable using a smartphone or a professional DSLR or mirrorless camera, make sure to take one with you and snap some pictures. This is what I use!
  • A drone. If you already have it or have been considering getting one, the landscape of Nusa Penida looks unreal from a bird’s eye perspective so you should try bringing one if you can. I loved using mine every chance I got!
  • A hard drive because all those photos and videos need to be stored somewhere now, don’t they? This may not apply to everyone, but I like to keep a backup of my files every day and thus carry a hard drive on all my trips. Not only does it help with emptying SD cards, but I honestly sleep better knowing my photos are safely backed up. This is the one I use.
  • A comfortable pair of shoes. The terrain in Nusa Penida is rough and you will often find plenty of gravel everywhere you go. Make sure to pack something with a nice grip that you don’t mind wearing for long hours. There is going to be lots of climbing up and down when you are there.
  • A pair of water shoes as well. This is not super important if you aren’t planning to go into the water, but Nusa Penida has some of the best beaches in the world so you may want to think it twice. The beaches and nature pools there often have sharp rocks in the water so I would highly recommend investing in good water shoes.

  • Snorkelling gear. The marine life in Nusa Penida is incredible and you must go on at least one snorkelling trip while you are there. Although it is possible to rent snorkelling gear at many places on the island, bringing your own is more economical if you are doing many tours. In some cases, it can also be more hygienic as well.
  • Lots of reef-free sunscreen! This is important everywhere, but especially in Nusa Penida where the sun tends to be very strong. And since you will probably be going in and out of water a lot, please make sure that it is marine life friendly.
  • Swimwear. Talking about water activities and beaches, you will of course need to bring at least a pair of swimwear if you are going to partake in any of these. I bought a few since I stayed more than a night.
  • A travel plug adapter that supports outlet types C and F. If your devices are bought from outside Indonesia, then make sure to carry this to have a seamless experience at your accommodation or check with your hotel for a spare. This one works in most places around the world.
  • A portable charger. Since you are going to be out and about all the time and using your phone for photos, directions, restaurant reviews, you may run out of battery quickly. A portable charge ensures you always have a working device with you!
  • A waterproof bag. You will have to take boats to travel between Nusa Penida and Bali so it is essential to keep your electronics safe. This can be super useful should there be any mishaps and also on snorkelling tips. Besides, you can even take it swimming to ensure you always have your stuff with you.
  • A medicine for sea-sickness. The boats between Bali and Nusa Penida can experience a lot of turbulence due to the rough sea so if you are someone who gets sea-sick easily, it may be useful to carry a few tablets for the journey.
  • Last but not the least, always carry a bottle of mosquito-repellent if you tend to get bitten a lot like me. I try to have it on me everywhere I go and it has never been not-useful.

FAQs about Nusa Penida

What does nusa penida mean.

Nusa Penida is derived from the Balinese language where the word “Nusa” means “island” and “Penida” means “priests”. The literal translation of Nusa Penida is “island of priests” in English.

Is Nusa Penida worth visiting?

100% yes! With its distinctive limestones, spectacular viewpoints, mesmerising marine life, and unbelievably clear blue water, Nusa Penida is one of those rare places, the beauty of which is even better in real life. If you get the chance, you should definitely visit Nusa Penida at least once in your lifetime.

Can you do a day trip to Nusa Penida from Bali?

If you are short on time, a day trip from Bali to Nusa Penida is definitely doable. In fact, it is very popular and many people travelling to Bali go on a day tour to explore the highlights of Nusa Penida. Just make sure to leave as early as you can, the first boat leaves around 7 am. 

Also, keep in mind that Nusa Penida is quite big and you won’t be able to see all the must-see places in a single day. Many other day tourists will have a similar itinerary as you so you will most likely be competing for the same locations on a day trip. It can get seriously crowded there!

Which side of Nusa Penida is the best?

Most landmarks in Penida are scattered between the eastern and western parts of the island so you’ll have to pick one when going on a day trip. Both sides of Nusa Penida have something unique to offer so it totally depends on which sites are you interested in seeing more.

The iconic Kelingking Beach, Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach are located on the west side of the island. This tour with all the transfers included is perfect if you want to see these spots in a day as they are only a fairly short drive from the harbour. This part of Nusa Penida also has some beautiful snorkelling locations.

The east side, on the other hand, is home to the picturesque Diamond and Atuh Beaches, Thousand Islands Viewpoint, and the viral Rumah Pohon Tree House. This side of the island is a little further from the harbour, but so worth it for its incredible views. This small tour from Bali is great to explore eastern Nusa Penida.

Do you need to book your boat trip in advance?

It is not exactly required to book your fast boat tickets to Nusa Penida in advance as they do sell them at the port on the day. But, fast boats between Nusa Penida and Bali can be booked out quickly, so I would recommend you to get yours here a few days before to secure a spot. This is especially true if you are travelling in a big group or during the peak season.

Are there any ride sharing apps in Nusa Penida?

Unlike Bali, Nusa Penida doesn’t have any ride sharing apps like GoJek and Grab. You will need to rent a scooter or hire a car with a private driver to get around the island. Some hotels also have shuttle services for short journeys.

Is Nusa Penida safe?

When it comes to crime, Nusa Penida is pretty safe as most people are friendly and want tourists to have the best time. However, the island’s dramatic cliffside viewpoints, strong ocean currents, terrible terrains and dangerous roads are prone to accidents.

If you are visiting Nusa Penida, make sure to only drive a scooter if you are very comfortable with it. The “roads” in some parts of the island are extremely hazardous and the local car drivers there drive very fast which can lead to many mishaps. The ocean current in Nusa Penida is also highly unpredictable so do not go swimming if there are signs against it.

The iconic viewpoint of Kelingking Beach with the T-rex made Penida island famous almost overnight and it seems that the infrastructure there hasn’t had a chance to catch up. When going to these viewpoints, make sure to not risk your life for a few photos and always be careful. 

CG’s tip: In case you visit Kelingking Beach or Diamond Beach on a rainy day, I would advise against climbing all the way down to the beach as the path is slippery as it is.

Is there nightlife in Nusa Penida?

Nusa Penida isn’t very big on nightlife as of yet so you will barely come across any parties on the island. Some restaurants, cafes and beach clubs do have live music in the evening but that is mostly it. Fairly speaking, there is no comparison of the nightlife in Nusa Penida with that of Bali, Gili Islands or Lombok.

Are the fast boats to Nusa Penida safe?

As much as I would love to say that the speed boats and ferries between Nusa Penida and Bali are completely safe, I have to admit that it is not entirely true. The boats that I took seemed quite fine, and though the majority of the rides end up being completely okay, the safety standards are not up to the mark. 

The boat companies apparently have life vests on board but there is speculation about whether they have enough. Some of the boats are also old and battered, and at times, filled above the passenger limit. There are definitely some cost-cutting methods and loose safety protocols so I do have my concerns.

For example, the sea condition wasn’t in our favour while returning to Bali and the ride was extremely bumpy. Everything ended up being fine, but it did leave me wondering that no one informed us where the lifejackets are stored upon boarding – a small piece of information which would be crucial should things go south.

To have a safer journey, I would recommend checking the wind and waves forecast before your trip. Wisuki shows you how big the waves are going to be on a particular day. If the forecast says that it will be above 2 metres high, then the ride would probably be bumpy. In which case, I would recommend you to go another time, especially during the wet months.

Which arrival port to choose for Nusa Penida?

Most fast boats and ferries from Bali to Nusa Penida arrive at the Banjar Nyuh Harbour (aka Toya Pakeh) in Penida. This is the most popular harbour on the island but there are also a few others. If you are travelling from any other island or simply have an option to choose your arrival port in Penida Island, then pick one that is closest to your hotel or your first stop. 

I stayed close to the Banjar Nyuh Harbour so it ended up being the perfect choice for me. The area by the harbour is filled with restaurants and cafes so it can be a great base for overnight stays. 

How much luggage can you take on the Nusa Penida boat?

Most fast boats and ferries allow passengers to bring two pieces of luggage weighing up to 30 kg in total. Except, they barely measure the weight so it isn’t strictly enforced. You have to hand over your suitcases before going up to the waiting area inside the main building. The boat staff then carries it and stores it on the deck for you once the boat is ready. 

But if you are asking for my opinion, I would suggest only taking a small cabin bag to Nusa Penida and storing all your big suitcases in Bali. This reduces the weight on the ferry and you do not have to drag your luggage on the sand at the port in Penida as it is not as developed. It will also end up being a blessing should the luggage get spoiled in an unfortunate situation.

Many people book an affordable villa in Sanur to store their luggage near the port or you can even keep it with your Bali hotel when checking out. There are also many luggage storing facilities close to Sanur Harbour that are greatly rated. My friend and I left our big suitcases with Putu and it ended up being very convenient. 

CG’s tip: Although the boat companies do their best to prevent water damage on both big and small suitcases, I would still recommend keeping your valuables in a small backpack or a purse with you. They tend to throw the bags while loading and unloading so things can still break.

That’s a wrap on a comprehensive Nusa Penida travel guide from me! I hope you found the information in this blog post helpful in planning your trip to Penida, the blue paradise island of Indonesia. My friend and I had such a lovely time there and I truly hope that you do too.

I tried to include everything I could think of in this guide, but if there is anything else I can help you out with, then please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below. You can also DM me on Instagram or send an email. I love hearing from you and helping you plan your trips!

If you want to spend more time in the west area of the island, then this is one of those tours Nusa Penida offers that may be exactly what you’re after.

On this tour, you’ll see four of the most stunning attractions in the western part of Nusa Penida in one day without worrying about directions or parking fees.

7. INSTAGRAM DAY TRIP FROM BALI – BEST NUSA PENIDA TOURS

One reason why many visitors don’t come to Nusa Penida is the logistics from Bali, which can be a hassle for some.

But when joining this tour, the tour operator will make everything easier as they include transportation from everywhere in Bali and the tour around Nusa Penida.

This tour has got everything from the legendary Angel’s Billabong with its crystal clear tide pool to the iconic T-Rex Beach at Kelingking. And let’s not forget about the stunning archway at Broken Beach.

You’ll be snapping pics left and right, and the best part? It’s a full-day tour, so you’ll have time to enjoy each moment!

What I particularly like about this tour is that there’s a maximum of 6 travelers, and you’ll have the chance to make friends and have some laughter while taking awesome shots!

So pack your camera and your sense of adventure, and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!

  • Hotel pickup & drop-off

9. SCUBA DIVING IN NUSA PENIDA

🕛 Duration: 4 hours | ⭐ Rating: 5/5 | Group Tour

Another incredible Nusa Penida island tour that I highly recommend is this scuba diving trip, which will give you memories that’ll last a lifetime!

You’ll start the half-day tour at Pure Dive Resort, where you’ll meet with trained instructors who will guide you through the basics before you take the plunge into the water.

Of course, all levels are welcome, so you won’t have to worry about that, which is pretty cool.

Also, it’s worth noting that the instructors will only take 2 participants at a time, providing maximum safety for everyone.

On top of that, you won’t go deeper than 12 meters, and the dive will last between 35 and 55 minutes – more than enough time to make the most of it.

The top-notch gear and state-of-the-art training facilities make this scuba diving program one of the best tours in Nusa Penida you can get!

We did our first-ever dive with the team at pure. I was quite anxious about diving, but our guide put me at ease and I could enjoy my time under the water. Fabulous experience and itching to go diving again! A Tripadvisor Reviewer

10. SMALL GROUP TOUR TO NUSA PENIDA FROM BALI

After a speedboat ride from Sanur Pier, you’ll jump on an air-conditioned bus and will be on your way to the most exotic places!

First stop, watch waves swirl at Broken Beach and crash at Angel’s Billabong. Then, spot the T-Rex-shaped headland at Kelingking Beach. You won’t believe your eyes!

But wait, there’s more – Take a dip in the crystal clear tropical waters of Crystal Bay Beach and take awesome photos.

12. PRIVATE CAR HIRE WITH DRIVER IN NUSA PENIDA

🕛 Duration: 8 hours | ⭐ Rating: 4.8/5 | Private Tour

13. SNORKELING & FREEDIVING TRIP AROUND NUSA PENIDA

🕛 Duration: 3 hours | ⭐ Rating: 4.5/5 | Small Group Tour

We’ve already covered a few snorkeling and diving Nusa Penida tours in this guide, however, what makes this one special is the spots you’ll see and the departure time.

You see, while I love and particularly recommend all tours in this guide when taking this one, you’ll leave at 7.30 am, which is before the crowded boats come over. That will give you enough to enjoy underwater life without getting disturbed.

The local operator knows the ins and outs of the best snorkeling and dive sites on the island, so you won’t have to worry about bumping into other tourists.

The package includes not only snorkeling or free-diving gear but wetsuits too, making your experience as comfortable as it gets.

Lastly, you’ll go diving in four different spots. That’s right – Four! Can you think of a better way to explore?!

  • Use of Snorkeling equipment
  • Use of Freediving Equipment
Got to see the mantas and it was an amazing experience! Would highly recommend! A Tripadvisor Reviewer

SNORKELING FREEDIVING NUSA PENIDA TOUR

14. NUSA LEMBONGAN & NUSA PENIDA SNORKELING TRIP

🕛 Duration: 3.5 hours | ⭐ Rating: 5/5 | Group Tour

The first time I came to Bali, everything was unique, exciting, and so cool, and I could never get enough of the area.

And I wish I knew about this tour, as it covers both Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan – how fun!

You see, if you’re tired of fighting for snorkeling spots with the swarm of tourists, seeing both islands is the answer to your prayers.

Start the trip in Nusa Lembongan where a driver will pick you up, and you’ll head over to Jungut Batu Beach for the first swim of the day.

After that, make your way to Crystal Bay , Manta Bay, and Toya Pakeh for the best, most photogenic spots you can imagine.

Once you’re done snorkeling and taking photos, you’ll have lunch with other participants, and this is the best way to end the trip.

I recommend booking the tour as soon as possible as it gets booked up pretty quickly.

  • Buffet lunch
  • Snorkeling guide
  • Round-trip hotel transfers from any hotel in Lembongan
  • Snorkeling sessions at 3 spots in Nusa Penida and Lembongan

15. MANTA RAY SAFARI TOUR IN NUSA PENIDA

🕛 Duration: 2 hours | ⭐ Rating: 4/5 | Group Tour

If you haven’t found your happy tour just yet, or the other trips are booked up, then this is certainly a fantastic choice.

You don’t have to be Jacques Cousteau to appreciate the abundance of reef fish and the colossal manta ray dancing gracefully in the water. This tour has got you covered!

Prepare for an adventure like no other, visiting the top four hot spots of Nusa Penida.

Soak up the sun and relax at the stunning Crystal Bay Beach, then jump into the water and experience the magic of Manta Bay.

Continue on to Gamat Bay, where you will be enchanted by the colorful coral gardens and diverse marine life.

Before going back, you’ll get to Wall Point, where you’ll feel like you’re swimming in a live aquarium.

In short, you’ll have a good time, and the price is affordable too!

A word of caution : This is a reasonably-priced tour, which is great for those on a budget, but keep in mind that there will be tourist crowds around, as opposed to a more exclusive, more expensive tour.

  • Snorkeling instructor
  • Transportation around the snorkeling spots
Amazing experience, snorkelled 4 spots with a variety of sea life, unbeatable experience for the price! Jamie, Tripadvisor

NUSA PENIDA ISLAND TRAVEL TIPS

Now that we’ve covered the best Nusa Penida tours, including the one-day tour Nusa Penida, here are some handy travel tips to know before you go.

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT NUSA PENIDA?

The island can be visited year-round, however, the best time to visit Nusa Penida is from May to August during the dry season.

While there will be more people visiting, it’s not as humid and hot as the rainy season and you won’t have as much rain.

Alternatively, April is a great time to visit as it’s the end of the rainy season and you’ll have plenty of opportunities for photos with fewer crowds.

IS NUSA PENIDA WORTH IT?

Definitely, Nusa Penida is one of the best places to visit in Indonesia and has some of the best beaches and viewpoints you’ve ever seen in your life.

Also, there are dozens of day trips from Bali , which is super convenient if you have limited time.

diamond beach nusa penida, atuh beach, atuh beach nusa penida, nusa penida tours

HOW LONG TO STAY IN NUSA PENIDA?

While you can take a day trip to Nusa Penida, I recommend staying at least 2 days to see the most popular attractions.

And if time allows, why not visit Nusa Penida for 3 or 4 days?

This will give you enough time to explore the island with a scooter, eat delicious food, go on a snorkeling trip, or perhaps do a diving course.

ROADS ON NUSA PENIDA

Nusa Penida is the perfect place for an adventurous getaway. However, the roads are bumpy and narrow in parts, but the stunning views make it well worth the journey.

For this reason, when taking day trips to Nusa Penida, you’ll want to take motion sickness pills if you get sick easily.

TOUR CANCELATIONS

Sometimes, tours in Nusa Penida Island are canceled due to unfavorable weather conditions.

While tour operators try their best to accommodate everyone, unpredictable weather can cause a Nusa Penida tour to get canceled.

This is the reason why I recommend booking one of these Nusa Penida tours, as you’ll get a refund or be able to postpone your trip in case it’s canceled.

HOW TO GET TO NUSA PENIDA?

While taking a day trip to Nusa Penida is the best way to get here, there are other ways to come over, including by speedboat.

I recommend checking my full guide here below to know exactly how to get to Penida Island.

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!

nusa penida tour travel

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.

nusa penida tour travel

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.

nusa penida tour travel

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.

nusa penida tour travel

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

nusa penida tour travel

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

nusa penida tour travel

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!

nusa penida tour travel

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.

nusa penida tour travel

Most beautiful beaches in Bali! My recommendation is to stay a couple of days and rent a scooter. Roads offer amazing views, there's lots of greenery, and the shoreline is fantastic!

nusa penida tour travel

If you are skipping Nusa Penida while travelling Bali your excursion won’t be complete. This island is so mesmerising . It’s totally raw and beautiful.

nusa penida tour travel

Nice and small Island, where you can find the true environment and nature. Nice local culture, but it shows that tourism is the main activity in place, what's for good or not!

nusa penida tour travel

Not for swimming, just for looking. The beaches are beautiful but too touristy and boasting deadly waves. Perfect for taking epic pictures, watching the sunset, and enjoying time with nature.

Nusa Penida West is a dream come true for anyone seeking natural tropical beauty. Imagine pristine white beaches, mesmerizingly clear waters and incredible cliffs and rock formations – it’s no wonder Nusa Penida West tours are a hit among travellers!

Embarking on a Nusa Penida Bali West journey is an absolutely incredible way to soak in some of the most breathtaking views the island has to offer.

East and West on One Day or Two Days?

Now, lots of folks opt for a day trip from Bali to Nusa Penida , but let me tell you from personal experience, there’s so much beauty to uncover on this island that I’d strongly suggest maybe staying overnight and doing a Nusa Penida East tour on the second day. It lets you really dive into the experience without feeling rushed or having to pick and choose between the stunning attractions of the West and East sides.

Sure, there are options for Nusa Penida West and East tours that pack everything into a single day, but they can be quite a whirlwind and leave you feeling worn out. The travel times alone can be exhausting. So, if it’s within your means, I’d recommend looking at the best places to stay in Nusa Penida so that you can cover both the west and east Nusa Penida island tours separately. Trust me, it’s worth it!

Having explored every corner of this island paradise multiple times, I’ve put together a list of the best-rated Nusa Penida West tours for fellow wanderlust souls. These are adventures that have left me spellbound, and I can’t wait to share them with you!

Lunch on both days was in good local restaurant. For this trip you need some good health and condition cause the walking tracks can be difficult.

Now, let’s dive into the unparalleled beauty of Nusa Penida West Tour Attractions

Nusa Penida West Tour Attractions

Angel’s billabong.

This natural infinity pool found in Nusa Penida West has become one of the most Instagrammable spots in Bali. The spot is named after the crystal clear and calm waters which feel like a pool in the middle of the ocean. The rock cliffs that surround the area also make this a fascinating place to enjoy a sun-soaked day in Nusa Penida

Kelingking Beach

aerial view of Nusa Penida West Kelingking cliff Bali day trip to Nusa Penida

One of the most famous and beautiful beaches on the Island, Kelingking Beach’s name means pinkie finger in Indonesian. This beach is renowned for its iconic T-Rex-shaped cliff and turquoise blue waters. It’s a must-see destination on your tour of Nusa Penida West, and the perfect spot for some stunning photographs!

Broken Beach

panoramic view of broken beach nusa penida west on nusa penida west tour

An extraordinary natural wonder, Broken Beach is a testament to the raw and untamed beauty of Nusa Penida. This unique geological formation got its name from the archway that encircles the bay, creating a ‘broken’ effect. The turquoise waters contrast beautifully with the rugged cliffs, making it a perfect spot for awe-inspiring photos. Legend has it that a giant creature was banished here, leaving behind this breathtaking landscape.

Crystal Bay

Things to do in Nusa Penida Crystal Bay Beach on Nusa Penida west tour

The beautiful crystal clear bay of Nusa Penida West is one of the most alluring beaches situated in the area. As the name suggests, Crystal Bay is renowned for its crystal-clear waters that mirror the blue skies. This idyllic beach is surrounded by palm trees and offers a serene spot for relaxation. But the real magic happens beneath the surface. Crystal Bay is a popular spot for snorkelling, with vibrant coral reefs and diverse marine life. It’s like stepping into a living aquarium!

Snorkelling Spots of Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida is a snorkeller’s paradise, offering an underwater world teeming with life and colour. From Manta Point where you can swim with majestic manta rays, to Gamat Bay where you’ll find colourful coral gardens, each spot holds its own charm.

Travel Tips For Nusa Penida West Tours

  • Tackle the West and East Side Tours separately: I’ve made a separate blog post for Nusa Penida West and Nusa Penida East tours because its really hard to pack everything into one day- is it possible yes? but if you want to take lots of photos, head down to the beach and feel a bit more relaxed and not be rushed I recommend doing a Nusa Penida West trip and an east Nusa Penida day trip separately .
  • Motion Sickness Medication: Not needed by everyone but a good few people on our Bali/Sanur trip to Nusa Penida had severe motion sickness due to the rough seas and also struggled with motion sickness on our snorkelling trip- it really does get rough on occasions.
  • Bring a change of clothes: For the Tour that involves snorkelling, You’ll head out to the snorkelling stops first, then go onto the island and explore Nusa Penida West island tour attractions. Having a change of clothes and a towel will ensure you enjoy the rest of your tour in comfort.
  • Sun Protection: Nusa Penida is very exposed to the sun, so please bring a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses. There is VERY MINIMAL shade at most of the attractions. I actually do not remember any shade on the Nusa Penida West tours, so cover up if you’re sun-sensitive.
  • Comfortable Shoes: We recommend wearing comfortable shoes for this tour as you’ll be doing quite a bit of walking. Flip flops or sandals are good for the beach portions, but some of the terrain is rougher if you’re descending down to Kelingking Beach or walking the circumference of Broken Beach.
  • Waterproof Camera: If you’re looking to capture the days memories, bring a waterproof camera for your snorkelling trip! Alternatively, phones come with great waterproof cases that can help protect them if it rains or while snorkelling/swimming.
  • Bring Cash: There is no ATM on the Island, so make sure you bring enough cash for any souvenirs or food/drinks that you may want to buy as well as tip for your guide or driver.

Nusa Penida West Tour FAQ

Absolutely! Nusa Penida is a beautiful destination and the West side of the island offers incredible attractions, stunning landscapes and unique experiences that you won’t find anywhere else. It’s definitely a place worth exploring if you’re looking for something different from your standard Bali holiday. Read my full post: Is Nusa Penida Worth Visiting?

I recommend wearing comfortable clothes and shoes for the tour. It’s extremely hot, so lightweight, fast-drying clothes are best. If you’re planning on swimming or snorkelling, make sure to bring your swimsuit and a towel as well. It’s also important to wear sun protection such as sunglasses, hats and sunscreen since Nusa Penida is quite exposed to the sun.

The best time to visit Nusa Penida West or do a Nusa Penida East tour is during the dry months from April to October. During this time, you’re likely to experience clear skies and calmer waters. The wet season runs from November to March and while it can still be enjoyable during these months, the seas tend to be rougher and there’s more chance of rain. We visited during October, and it was still pretty dry. I don’t remember it raining at all actually.

A number of factors will play a role in the price of a Nusa Penida tour namely: Is it a private or join-in/shared tour? Is the one-day trip Nusa Penida tour from Bali or Nusa Penida, Is there included hotel pick up and drop off in Bali, What is included in the day tour package, The nusa penida day trip cost can range between as little as 400 000 IDR (Indonesian Rupiah) to 2 million IDR, Therefore the Nusa Penida tour package does depend on what type of experience you want.

Nusa Penida Day trips are dependent on which side of the island you want to see, the East or the West. I strongly recommend picking one day for each. This is my top pick for a West Nusa Penida Day tour: West Nusa Penida island Tour with Snorkelling , My other best Nusa Penida tour is the 2day 1night Nusa Penida tour

Most tours include a hotel pick/up and drop off in Bali and return boat transfers too. If you’re choosing a Bali Nusa Penida tour without this option: Check out separate fast boat ticket prices from Bali to Nusa Penida here

Yes, you can definitely do this. Nusa Penida is only a 25-minute boat ride away from Nusa Lembongan so it’s possible to make a day trip out of it. Once you arrive at the harbour in Nusa Penida, there are plenty of tour operators and drivers who will tout their services.

Yes, you can do a day trip from Sanur to Nusa Penida. It’s a journey of usually around 1 hour and 10 minutes boat ride but it’s still very doable. We took this route on our first Nusa Penida experience. This is the main way to get to Nusa Penida from Bali.

It really depends on what you’re looking for. Nusa Penida Wast offers a lot of photo-worthy attractions like Angel’s Billabong, Broken Beach and Crystal Bay while the Eest side is more relaxed with spectacular views from Diamond and Atuh Beach and the insta-famous Rumah Pohon Treehouse stunning. I definitely recommend doing both as it’s quite hard to pack everything into one day.

We’ve had quite an adventure exploring the best of Nusa Penida West tour, haven’t we? From the majestic Kelingking Beach to the serene natural pool of Angel’s Billabong, every moment has been a testament to the beauty that Indonesia has to offer.

Now, it’s your turn to dive into this experience! Choose from our top three recommended tours and embark on your own journey of discovery.

When you return, sun-kissed and brimming with stories, remember to share your experiences with me! I can’t wait to hear about your adventures in Nusa Penida. So, are you ready to make some memories? Book your tour now and let Nusa Penida’s magic unfold before your eyes.

We had GIO and KADEK show us around and it was amazing. Such amazing guide I would recommend them to anyone definitely worth every cent I will definitely be recommending them to my friends and family

Went for the tour with my family, 7 of us. Wonderful boat and team! Big shout out to our guides, Aldo and Kudil, who made sure we're having fun while prioritising our safety. I would, definitely, recommend the tour to anyone who's looking for a day trip full of fun!

We went with Gio and Kodak and it was amazing! They both had lots of energy and spunk and had great photography skills. Once we finished they sent us a google drive with all the photos and videos of us and the other couples. The water was very clear and not very crowded, and lunch at the beach club was amazing! We ate the buffet, admired the amazing view and swam in the infinity pool. Due to going to klekling cliff before, my family opted out of going (and the other couples did too). So we got to stay at the beach club longer and spend more time snorkeling at the last stop. There we saw 3 sea turtles and a pufferfish. Definitely worth booking!

nusa penida tour travel

This experience well exceeded our expectations. Gio and the crew were lovely and incredibly knowledgeable and kept us updated throughout the day. The snorkelling spots were chosen perfectly and we were lucky enough to see a manta ray, many fish and lots of turtles. My partner usually struggles with sea sickness but the crew provided tablets that worked really well. I even left my sunglasses on the boat accidentally and Gio was kind enough to organise returning it to me. I cannot recommend this experience more, it was very safe and was the highlight of our trip and is more than worth it.

Went to 4 different spots snorkeling, an infinity pool overlooking Nusa Penida for lunch and a land tour too to see a T-Rex shaped mountian! Such an incredible experience made unforgettable with our lovely guides. Highly recommend this tour with Derrick and Morgan.

Great trip! Joman our captain and Made our guide were excellent! Fabulous trip would highly recommend!

Visa-free travel to Russia

Several countries now have bilateral agreements in place with the Russian Federation to allow visa-free travel to Russia for their citizens. Unfortunately, however, there is no indication that similar agreements will be reached with the EU, the US, or the UK any time soon.

If you are not a citizen of one of the countries below and do not hold a diplomatic passport, the only other way to visit the Russian Federation without a visa is on a cruise ship to St. Petersburg. This exemption allows you to stay in the city for up to 72 hours without a visa on the condition that you are sleeping on the ship and are accompanied at all times by a licensed tour guide. If your cruise calls in St. Petersburg for 48 or 72 hours, there are companies offering shore tours which include a day in Moscow.

The same visa-free regime is applied to passengers on ferries from Helsinki and Tallinn operated by the company St. Peter Line, although in the case of ferry passengers you need to book your own accommodation. Again, it is possible within the 72 hours to visit Moscow as well. You can find out more about visa-free tours to Moscow and St. Petersburg here .

Nationalities which can travel to Russia without visas are divided into four groups with different requirements and different limitations on length of stay for each group. Even if you do not need a visa to enter Russia, you will certainly need a passport valid for at least six months after the date of your proposed exit from Russia, and you may require other official documents. You will also, like all foreign travelers in Russia, still need to register with the Federal Migration Service upon arrival.

Citizens of the countries of the CIS (the Commonwealth of Independent States) are permitted to stay in the Russian Federation for up to 90 days without a visa.

Citizens of these countries are allowed to stay in the Russian Federation without a visa for up to 90 days in each 180-day period, provided they will not be involved in any commercial or work-related activities during their stay.

Citizens of the countries in this group can stay in the Russian Federation for up to 30 days without a visa. They are not entitled to work while in Russia.

Citizens of these Balkan countries can also stay in Russia without a visa for up to 30 days, but must also show tourist documents (tourist confirmation and tourist voucher) or an official invitation to immigration officials.
