Tembeling: The Natural Pool of Nusa Penida

One of Nusa Penida’s best-kept secrets is a crystal clear natural sweet water pool on the west side of the island. Tembeling Forest and Beach are one of our favorite things to do on Nusa Penida because it is so different from everything else. The natural pool is mainly occupied by local kids playing and jumping into the pool. There even is a small jumping point.

Getting to Tembeling Natural Pool

Reaching the Tembling pool on Nusa Penida is possible by motorbike or foot. From the parking area, either get on the back of a motorbike for 10 minutes or walk for 30 minutes. A motorbike return trip should cost about 50000 IDR (3 USD) per person. The drive down is very steep and only recommended for experienced motorbike drivers.   

From the motorbike stopping point, there is a concrete stair going down towards the natural pool and beach. This is an easy 5-minute walk down.

Tembeling Beach

After the relaxing swim, walk all the way down towards the beach. This walk is another 5 minutes. The beach is a big rough beach where you can relax. Swimming is not really possible because of all the rocks and strong waves.

On the other side is a small secret beach with stones piled up as small towers. To go back up to the top you have to walk for 15 minutes and drive back last part with the motorbike.
