Nusa Penida is a small Island, but still the largest of the three Nusa islands. The other two are Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. Nusa Penida has beautiful beaches and landscape. It is actually larger than Nusa Lembongnan but has yet to be built up with hotels and westernized shops, so it remains in an organic state that welcomes every type of explorer – especially those who love the water as it is crystal clear! But if you like walking, you'll also enjoy yourself here: beautiful treks through the jungle, climbing the Mundi mountain, or descending steep paths to the rising springs at the bottom of the rocks near the sea.
Nusa Penida is an hour from Bali, but is a world of difference. Bali is beautiful, but also very famous and therefore quite touristy. Many travelers therefore turn to the Gili islands, but there are also more and more travelers. Nusa Penida on the other hand is a relief. Little tourism, no pushy salesmen and a beautiful landscape combined with the most beautiful beaches in the area. You won’t find temples or volcanoes here, but the lush and breathtaking nature, the magical landscapes, hidden beaches and endless coconut fields. Booking a day trip to Nusa Penida with Watersport Bali, guarantees you to see the most beautiful places. It is definitely one of the best kept secrets of Indonesia.
Close to Angel Billabong is another attraction that, if you are active on Instagram or Pinterest, you have undoubtedly encountered once. From the top of this impressive cliff you have a magnificent view of the Indian Ocean and the coastline of the island. It is the perfect spot to take 100 photos, but even without pictures, you won’t forget the view of the beach below in the bay, surrounded by the gigantic cliffs and crystal-clear water. You can also go down. There is a bamboo staircase along the cliff that takes you to the beach below. The staircase does not look very safe and stable and it’s recommended to wear proper footwear, but it is certainly advisable to go down to the beach. The beach is as magical as it looks from the top of the cliff.
Broken Bay (sometimes Beach) is a unique sight on Nusa Penida. As soon as you arrive you will see a sort of arch or bridge of rock over the water. This arch used to be a cave whose floor was poured into the sea, thus creating the arch. The hole in the cliff ensures that the water can flow through it. A beautifully impressive natural phenomenon. They also call it Pasir Uug. However, contrary to what the name suggests, it is not a beach. You cannot swim here, and believe us, you do not want that either. The drive to Broken Bay is just as big an adventure as the bay itself.
Angel's Billabong; a natural infinity pool. You have to walk a little to get there, so good shoes are recommended, but the beautiful view will make up for everything!
You might think of the most beautiful beach hearing the name Crystal Bay, but unfortunately this is not the case. This Bay got its name because of the crystal-clear water, which makes it a popular spot for snorkeling. It is an ideal beach to do nothing and watch the sun go down or drink a fresh coconuts. It is not a white sandy beach, but you experience the real island life here! On the left side of the beach you can walk to a viewpoint. It is the ideal place for a nice day out doing nothing.
