Have you ever heard of Nusa Penida? It is an island near the southeast coast of Bali, the famous tropical island in Indonesia. Nusa Penida is actually one of the three Nusa Islands which offer beautiful beaches and natural landscapes. Moreover, it only takes a short boat ride to reach the Islands from Bali. If you ever happen to visit Bali, you must include Nusa Penida in your travel destinations. You will not be disappointed, especially if you love beaches and wonderful scenery. As Nusa Penida is smaller than Bali, you might be confused of what to do. Not to worry, because below is the list of things to do in Nusa Penida, Bali.
How to Get to Nusa Penida
You can choose one of two ways to reach Nusa Penida: using a fast boat or a slow boat. If you are using the fast boat, be prepared to pay extra because it is the most expensive way to travel to Nusa Penida. However, it is also the most common way to reach the biggest Nusa island; multiple boats come and go many times a day, so you do not have to worry about catching a ride. The boats leave from Sanur, Bali, and it takes around 30 to 40 minutes for one ride. The price range is around IDR 300,000 - 350,000.
The second way to reach Nusa Penida is by travelling with a slow boat. The boats do not have a fixed schedule, so you have to ask first before going to Nusa Penida. The ticket is much cheaper than the fast boat, a one-way costing around IDR 31,000. The duration of the journey is not that long too; it only takes around 1.5 hours to reach Nusa Penida.
Best Ways to Explore Nusa Penida
Even though Nusa Penida is smaller than Bali, that does not mean it is a small island. The whole island is around 200 square kilometers, so you will need something to explore the entirety of the island. Moreover, the roads are bad, so prepare for a very rough journey to get anywhere. However, do not let that deter you, because the island’s beauty is worth it.
You can rent a motorcycle to help you explore the island faster. However, if you are not an experienced driver, it is best to rent a scooter instead. As the roads are in bad condition with lots of potholes, you can fall down if you are not careful.
Visit Kelingking Beach
It is the main tourist attraction in Nusa Penida. The beach gets its name because the land juts out from the main island, creating what many people see as a T-Rex shape. You can gaze the breathtaking view from the top of the beach. If you are feeling adventurous, you can trek down the bamboo railings to get down to a white sand beach surrounded by turquoise waters. Keep in mind that the way down is risky.
Visit Angel Billabong and Broken Beach (Pasih Uug)
These area offers beautiful views, Angel Billabong also has a pool of water with clear and clean water. Broken Beach can also be used as a swimming location.
Lounge at the Crystal Bay
After exploring a jungle full of trees, you will find the beautiful beach dotted with multiple palm trees and clear waters. Besides, getting to Crystal Bay is a piece of cake compared to other attractions in Nusa Penida: smooth road and a view of forest along the way. It is also the best place to chill out, because of the various facilities like bean bags, lounge chairs, and food stalls; and crystal clear water that fits for snorkeling.
Enjoy Me Time at Suwehan Beach
This beach is considered as one of the hidden attractions in Nusa Penida, so you will not be bothered by a crowd of tourists flocking the space. The beach is secluded with a triangle-shaped large stone in water that marks it with “private beach” vibe. The best time to visit the beach is in the afternoon, so do not miss out.
