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.
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 ocean on this side is very rough and can easily become dangerous. You can reach the beach by walking 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.
