Swim at the Natural Pool of Tembeling Forest & Beach

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

You can only reach the pool by motorbike and 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.

Tip: Don’t forget to take your swimsuit :)  

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.

The sweet water pool has this glow because of the sun rays shining through the jungle leaves. Take off your shirt and take a refreshing dip.

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.

  • I love your editing in your photos and all the lush warm colors. Keep up the great work, you’ve inspired my work :)

  • Firstly – your posts on here are INCREDIBLE. Secondly, I’ll be flying solo and I’m wondering how to get from Gili Trawangan to Nusa Penida?

      Hi Georgina,

      Thank you! You can take the ferry from one of the islands but we’ve only done the route where we had to go back to Bali and change boats to Nusa Penida. It might have changed by now as NP has gotten so much more popular. Enjoy your trip!

  • Im so happy that I found your blog!! I’m flying to Bali with two friends in June:)
