The Nusa Islands off the coast of Bali are some of my favorite islands to explore for a few days when I need a getaway! There are three islands: Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan, and Nusa Penida. Spend 2 days exploring Lembongan and Ceningan, being sure to visit Devil’s Tear on Lembongang and the Blue Lagoon on Ceningan for sunset. These two islands are connected by a small yellow bridge that you can ride a bike over. Spend at least 1-2 full days on Penida to visit Kelingking Beach, Broken Beach, and Angel’s Billabong on the west coast, and Diamond Beach and Atuh Beach on the east coast. #awesomepic
Nusa Penida is an island located an hour speedboat ride from Bali and is definitely worth a visit.
The recommended length of stay is at least two days because the island tends to get crowded the moment boats start to arrive. The best time to enjoy all the nature gems such as Kelingking Beach or Diamond Beach early morning or during sunset.
Our favourite accommodation here is Penida Bamboo Green- amazing food, extremely friendly staff, affordable prices and beautifully designed rooms! We loved this place.
The best way to explore Nusa Penida is the scooter. The condition of roads here is rather poor and we found scooter the best mean to move around without the feeling of being sick as we felt while being in a hired taxi for a longer while. #nusapenida #bali #visitnusapenida
TOP 10 PLACES TO VISIT IN NUSA PENIDA!
• Diamond Beach and Atuh Beach
Diamond Beach is one of our favorite beaches so far! Even tho the walk down the rocky stairs sometimes gets pretty hardcore, we loved it there so much!
• Tree House in Nusa Penida
A very random but perfect spot to capture the Thousand Island view in the background with cool Treehouse.
• Thousand Islands viewpoint is another spot that you shouldn’t miss on your Nusa Penida itinerary. Easy and short enough walk down the cliff will bring you to many lookouts where you can cherish this view from.
• Tembeling Beach and Forest Nature Pool
A little secret spot we got recommended by locals and didn’t regret for a second that we decided to visit!
When we were told about this natural pool in the middle of the jungle we didn’t expect to find a place which consists of two beaches and two natural pools just casually lying in the deepest jungle we have walked through!
• Kelingking Beach
The most photographed spot from Nusa Penida. Some people see the cliff shape as a whale, some people call it a T-Rex. Either way, we could spend hours on the top of the cliff looking down and trying to wrap our heads around this beauty.
Angell’s Billabong is a distinctive rock formation just on the edge of a steep cliff and a powerful ocean. All together this creates the most unique natural pool we have ever seen and took a dip in.
• Broken Beach
One of the most picturesque places on Nusa Penida Island. Sheer cliffs created a bridge through which the rough ocean rushes onto an untouched beach.
• Crystal Bay
Beautiful white sandy beach with warongs around (small street shops/restaurants) creates a perfect spot for sunbathing, relaxing or snorkeling.
• Palm tree Road
A narrow straight road lined by tons of palm trees. You have to stop and stare and probably take a picture or two:))

ANGELS BILLABONG & BROKEN BEACH - ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW!
When visiting Nusa Penida, you can’t miss either of these places!
Mother Nature did a spectacular job right here. These two are probably the best-known spots on Nusa Penida, so be prepared, if you will go there during the day, there will be plenty of people.
We went there for sunrise and there was NOBODY around. Both of these wonders you can have just for yourself until approximately 8 am.
Our tip: When you are arriving, there is a man collecting the entrance fee. We would recommend to first park your bike there because that´s where Broken Beach is! Enjoy the view you will get to see and then keep going on the bike to the proper parking spots where is Angell’s Billabong. This way you can now just jump into the natural pool and soak everything that’s around you.
Broken Beach is the place that leaves you speechless or maybe with one big WOW.
Sheer cliffs created a bridge through which the rough ocean rushes onto an untouched beach. It looks as crazy and beautiful as it sounds!
You can´t enter the beach at the bottom, but you can walk on the bridge and all around to enjoy every angle on this beauty.
Angell’s Billabong is a distinctive rock formation just on the edge of a steep cliff and a powerful ocean. All together this creates the most unique nature infinity pool we have ever seen and took a dip in!
If you want to attempt to have a swim inside of the Billabong, make sure you are there on low tide. Because as amazing as this place is, it’s even more dangerous, and swimming on the high tide could end up swiping you by a huge unpredictable wave into the rough Indian Ocean. So enjoy this place because it’s one in a lifetime experience but be very careful and research the up date tide and current situation in advance:)

Located in the Badung Strait just off Bali, Nusa Penida is a relevantly undeveloped island with a number of popular beaches, coves, and resort areas along its coastline. As with other places in Indonesia, there is a lively diving and snorkeling community around Nusa Penida where the warm tropical waters feature abundant sea life. Many visitors also enjoy hiking around the island, which has some amazing trails that climb up to the bluffs overlooking the coves and ocean below. It’s a magical place for some photographs.
