Things you Must See on a Nusa Penida Tour
Nusa Penida is the little gem of Bali. Penida island is part of the Nusa Islands, is the biggest of the 3 but until now the least developed. By visiting Nusa Penida expect white-sand beaches with silky blue water, 200-meter high coastal cliffs drop and yet untouched nature. It is recommended to either visit the island by a one-day Nusa Penida Tour or a 3-day Nusa Penida trip.

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 fewer visitors. If you prefer to see both sides, it is better to do a 3-day Nusa Penida Trip.
We explain both tours in this article so it will be easier for you to choose.

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 to 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 and not very safe 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.
