Diamond Beach – Most Beautiful Beach on Nusa Penida in Bali

On the Bali island, Nusa Penida is one of the most beautiful beaches you have ever seen. One that came straight from the postcards. Diamond Beach is an untouched, white-sand and silky blue water bay on the eastern tip of Nusa Penida.

With the, in 2018, almost finished stairs, Diamond Beach is ready to become one of the next highlights of Penida island and one of the best things to do on Nusa Penida.

Diamond Beach Viewpoint

The view from the top on Diamond Beach is one directly from the postcards. A stunning white beach, silky blue water, limestones, and palm trees are creating a dream destination. Diamond Beach is without a doubt one of the things you must do on Bali.

You can walk up all the way up to a small building where you find a viewpoint overlooking the beach. The viewpoint is an easy 5-minute walk from the parking area. 

Atuh Beach is on the opposite side of the viewpoint both a must-visit during your 3-week Bali Route.

Diamond Beach

Visiting the beach wasn’t possible until late 2018. With the new stairs, carved out of the limestone, you can now get down to the beach in 20 minutes. On an East Nusa Penida tour, it is possible to visit this beach.

During our visit, the stair wasn’t finished where we had to climb down a little bit and climb over rocks to reach the beach.

It is advised to only visit Diamond Beach during low tide. The sea on this side is very rough and can easily be dangerous. You can reach the beach by walk over and around the rocks.

Unfortunately, Diamond Beach is not made for swimming. Every wave contains a lot of coral and rocks which makes it quite painful. If you are fast enough and go in between the waves you can have a good cool down in the sea. Just be very careful with the current. It is a new, unknown spot and there is no help down here.

Visiting the viewpoint and the beach would take a total time of 1.5 to 2-hours. The walk down is doable and by far not as difficult as Kelingking Beach.

How to get to Diamond Beach

Diamond Beach is quite easy to reach by car or motorbike during a Nusa Penida Trip. However, due to the fast driving cars and narrow roads, we don’t recommend driving a motorbike on Nusa Penida.

From Penida harbor, it is an hour drive to reach Diamond Beach and it easiest via an East Nusa Penida Tour. Day trips are organized from the other Nusa Islands and Bali.

  • I’m going to April from Bangkok to Bali then Jogjakarta. I followed you guys on Instagram. So beautiful photos and lovely couple!

  • Amazing pics. Planning to visit Bali with our 2.5yr toddler. Do u recommend going to nusa penida? Thinking of staying for a night, visiting view points of klenkling and diamond beaches and just chill. We can’t do the trek down with a toddler. Are the view points safe ?

    • Salt in our Hair

      The viewpoints are ‘safe’ but you definitely cannot let your child run around. Nusa Penida is rough and I wouldn’t directly recommend the island to chill. It is an adventure and can be tiring. Hope this helps!

  • O my God, I’m looking at these pictures, and from the window of my office in London I see a dark sky with rain, and I’m so jealous right now. You give me the perfect idea of where to spend my next vacation, thanks for the tips.

    • Salt in our Hair

      haha we’re sorry to hear you’re in the rain. At least it pushes you to get planning your next trip ?

  • Amazing photos & stunning blog! What photographer did you guys work with? I would love to book a shoot as I’m traveling to Bali Solo.

    • saltinourhair
