Things to see on a Nusa Penida Tour
During a Nusa Penida day tour, you can either explore the west or east coast of Penida Island. West is more popular since it is closer to the harbor. East is at least as beautiful and has fewer tourists. If you prefer to see both sides, it is better to do a 3-day Nusa Penida Trip.
This Nusa Penida travel guide explains both tour types so it will be easier for you to choose from.
West Coast Nusa Penida Tour
The west coast of Penida island has beautiful sights like Angel’s Billabong and Kelingking Beach. Combine this with Crystal Bay, Peguyangan waterfall and Broken Beach to have a day filled with incredible viewpoints and jaw-dropping nature.
Tip: It’s also a great option to switch Broken Beach and Angel’s Billabong for Tembeling Natural Pool.
Kelingking beach is 100% sure the most spectacular place on Nusa Penida. White sand and a piece of land shaped like a dinosaur head. The view from the top is incredible but be prepared if you want to hike down to the beach. This hike down is a 45-minute incredibly steep path.
Angel’s Billabong & Broken Beach
Nusa Penida is full of spectacular shaped locations. Broken Beach is one of them. A 45-minute bumpy ride from KelingKing takes you to this spectacular gate.
A 150-meter walk from Broken Beach is a natural infinity pool where you can dip in and enjoy the clearest water you’ve ever swam in.
Crystal Bay Nusa Penida
One of the few beaches fully surrounded by palm trees where you can snorkel and relax.
Peguyangan waterfall or Snorkeling with Manta Rays
A 150-meter high iron blue stairs down towards a tiny waterfall, which gives you the most scenic areas and a real test to your fear of heights. Around Nusa Penida are great Manta-Ray snorkeling and diving points. To do this, you would have to stay a little longer.
East Coast Nusa Penida Tour
The east coast is a little more untouched. You will visit Atuh and Diamond Beach, Thousand Islands viewpoint, Rumah Pohon Treehouse and you can either choose between the underground temple Giri Putri or Teletubbies Hill.
Diamond and Atuh Beach
Two picture-perfect beaches located very near each other. To get to those beaches you will have to decline via a stair which is quite challenging.
Price of a Nusa Penida tour
The price of a tour totally depends on what you like to see and the comfort you prefer on Penida Island. A day trip usually takes from 8 AM until 16 PM. Spend one night on Nusa Penida if you like to see both the east and west coast in a Nusa Penida tour.
Private tour price
A private Nusa Penida Tour with driver, car, boat, hotel transfers, and entrance fees usually starts from 750.000 IDR (~50 USD). Split the costs with two to four people and it will be cheaper than a shared van.
Shared van price
A fair price for a Nusa Penida tour (not private!) would be 500000 IDR (~33 USD) when doing either the west or east side. Do remind keep in mind will probably be put in a van with 10 others.
