Our trip will begin from your hotel and drive to sanur harbour where is the speed boat from, cruising 30 minutes only by speed to get nusa penida. when we arrived there our guide already waiting for us and ready to explore the island.
- Kelingking Beach
- Paluang cliff

- Broken Beach
- Crystal Bay
Kelingking Beach is the most popular place and beautifull cliff view on the south westerncoast of Nusa Penida island. From above we could see the blue sea and the best part ia crystal beach down below and we have to do trekking by climbing hundreds of quite steep stairs there. Our goal, however, was not to play to the beach, but just to see the beauty of kelingking beach from the secret point.
Angel's Billabong is often included in the list of recommendations for anyone on vacation to Bali, especially when crossing to Nusa Penida Island. Indeed, even though you have to cross to Nusa Penida to visit Angel's Billabong, you certainly won't regret having to 'go to great lengths' to be able to enjoy amazing natural treats while there.
The location of Angel's Billabong is adjacent to Broken Beach, so it's like a figurative once rowing 2 islands is exceeded, and that happens here. From Broken Beach we only need trekking around 5-7 minutes and the road is not too difficult.However, you only need to be careful because the tracks are ugly and have lots of rocks. So to be able to arrive at this location, you have to pass Broken Beach
Broken Beach or better known as Pasih Uug by local residents, is a 200 meter high cliff that juts into the ocean. These cliffs have been exposed to sea water abrasion for centuries, so that giant cave-like holes form naturally in the middle. Well, from this hole the name Pasih Uug (broken beach) or Broken Beach appears and is known by the community and tourists who come to Nusa Penida.
Paluang Cliff itself is a spot that allows visitors to be able to see the cliffs / rocks found on Pinkie Beach. It can be said that Paluang Cliff is a hidden spot to be able to see the beauty of the rocks in Kelingking Beach from a different perspective. The travel time from the warung where we eat to this location takes around 7 minutes by motorbike. To be able to reach this place, we have to go through a little swamp and need to be careful too because we can get scratched due to friction with various types of plants in the swamps. The road that must be passed also counts very narrow and only one direction. You could say, this spot is a hidden spot that is unknown to many people.
Crystal Bay is located on the west side of Nusa Penida. The bay is a popular tourist destination. The beach is jotted by lonely palm trees. One can rent umbrellas, chairs, snorkel gear, and light refreshments. Just outside the bay there is a big rock, a small island even, which can be used as a point of reference, especially under water. The snorkeling here is considered some of the best on the island due to the clarity of the water with eels, Napoleon fish, parrot fish, seasonal turtles, and brilliant coral. During the summer months Mola Mola are often spotted here although they can also be spotted during the wet season. All of this is easily accessible from shore, but caution should be taken if the current or waves are strong.
