Discover Nusa Penida’s epic coastline with manta rays and ocean sunfish (‘mola mola’) swimming in the surrounding waters. This tour also includes a visit to Broken Beach, which has a cool circular cove with a leftover arch in the rocks.
Next, visit Kelingking Cliff to see the incredible T-Rex shaped beach below it. Then, swim in Angel’s Billabong, a natural pool carved out of the rocks!
One of the top things to do on a Nusa Penida tour is to swim with manta rays. These large marine animals are gentle and swim close to you without being frightened. They also don’t mind tourists gently swimming around them as long as they don’t interrupt them or harass them.
Manta Point, or Batu Lumbung, is a world-class diving spot that attracts manta rays year round. This spot is famous for its cleaning station, where mantas gather to have their parasites removed by small reef fish.
Besides the manta rays, visitors can also see a variety of other marine life here, including sharks, marble rays, eagle rays, and sting rays. It is also a great place to view the oceanic sunfish, or Mola-Mola.
To reach the site, you can take a traditional ferry or a speed boat from Sanur, Kusamba, or Klungkung. The speed boat offers faster transit times and is a better option for those with limited time.
The enchanting Kelingking Beach, affectionately referred to as “Dinosaur Head Beach,” is a hidden gem on the island of Nusa Penida. The secluded stretch of white sand framed by towering cliffs and turquoise waters offers a mesmerizing view that has captured the imaginations of many travelers worldwide.
Located on the west side of Nusa Penida, Kelingking Beach is an ideal destination for those seeking a unique and breathtaking beach experience that features both cliff charm and pristine beaches. It’s best to visit the beach during the dry season, from April to October, to enjoy optimal weather conditions and calm seas.
The road to Kelingking Beach can get a bit busy so we recommend arriving early. When you arrive, there are a few locals sitting by a small hut that will ask for a parking fee and point you in the direction of the beach. They will also offer mie goreng and nasi goreng for 15,000-25,000 Rupiah.
Broken Beach (or Pasih Uug), is a scenic coastal formation on the southwestern edge of Nusa Penida. It is a popular destination for travel photographers and others looking for stunning panoramic views. The area is also home to a population of gray long-tailed macaques.
To reach the beach, visitors must walk down a rocky pathway. It is best to visit the area in the morning to avoid crowds and high temperatures. It is also a good idea to bring sunscreen, a hat, and comfortable walking shoes. It is important to stay hydrated, so bring a water bottle and a snack.
Aside from admiring the beautiful scenery, visitors can also enjoy snorkeling at the beach or hiking around the cliffs. However, beware of the tides as they can be dangerous at certain times. Moreover, it is advisable to bring a guide if you plan on hiking or exploring the cliffs. The guide will be able to help you pass through the rocks and find the hidden spots.
Angel’s Billabong is one of Nusa Penida’s most famous attractions and is a fascinating natural phenomenon. It looks like an infinity pool from above, and it is a popular spot to take pictures. However, it is important to remember that swimming here is dangerous, and it is not recommended.
It is best to visit the spot in the morning when there are fewer tourists. The road to this location is steep and uneven, so be sure to wear comfortable footwear. Also, bring a hat and sunscreen.
You can also enjoy a stunning sunset at the beach and admire the views from the Angel’s Billabong Sunset Point. The beach has a swing that faces the east, and it is one of the most beautiful spots to watch the sunset in Nusa Penida. You can book a Nusa Penida highlights tour that includes a stop at Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach. This one-day tour also offers a snorkeling trip at Crystal Bay.
