Full Day West Island trip

Kelingking Beach Nusa Penida

This place is a must to visit if you are in Nusa Penida. But be careful and prepare yourself if you plan to go all the way down. It takes around 40 min to go down and a little faster up depending on how busy the path is. The path are dangerous and not well taken care of.

Do the trekking either on the morning on late in the afternoon.
Bring at least 1,5L water per person and wear proper shoes and forget about going barefoot or in flip flops.


Full Day East Island trip

Atuh Beach

Atuh Beach is a hidden beach on Nusa Penida that will take your breath away with its clifftop vistas. It’s a little tricky to get to but you won’t regret it.

Diamond Beach Nusa Penida

Paradise. But it can be difficult access for some people. Quite busy beach but definitely worth to see it! Please note there is no access to the beach on high tide!

Angel Billabong

There is a short walk from the parking with a few shops. The most photogenic locations will have a line so be patient and allow everyone to take that instagram shot. Try and go as close to the rocks as possible but be mindful of powerful waves.

Traveller advice
Get a car and driver

The road is not well build in Nusa Penida. If you wish to go around it is best to get a car and a driver who knows where to go. The signal in touristic are works well, but when you go a little further out the GPS might work slow to show you a direction.

Snorkeling and sightseeing

Most of the beach in Nusa Penida takes some effort to get to. Sightseeing from the cliff is the way to go. If you try to go down to every each beaches you need to understand the tide, as some of the beaches a re not accessible during high tide. Staying for 2/3 nights might be ideal to discover the whole island.
