Thousand Island Viewpoint is definitely one of the most spectacular spots to take in the ocean breeze and spend a moment appreciating exactly where you are. We spent a good hour just relaxing on the cliff overlooking the islands and chilling out at Thousand Island Nusa Penida.
How To Get To Thousand Island Viewpoint Nusa Penida
The Eastern point is about a 1 hour 30 minutes drive from the ferry port and the roads are pretty rough. So please take care when driving!
On the first day of our Nusa Penida tour we took a day trip with @balinusapenidatour who covered all the iconic spots with ease, so if you’d rather visit with a car and a driver we can recommend them.
Entrance – 5,000 IDR
Parking – FREE
Mie Goreng – 15,000 IDR
Thousand Island Viewpoint Nusa Penida (aka Pulau Seribu or Raja Lima)
Once you pay entrance to the Ruman Pohon Molentang grounds it gives access to the Nusa Penida Treehouse as well as the Thousand Island Viewpoint – also known as Pulau Seribu (literally translating to Thousand Islands) or Raja Lima.
The stairway down is about a 10 minute walk and can be a little tough on a hot day. Although the views at the bottom are well worth it! They also have a small warung style shop at the entrance. It was surprisingly cheap at only 15,000 for a Mie Goreng.
There are two viewpoints giving a different angle of the beautiful eastern rock formations and crystal blue Bali Sea.
The first has recently been roped off for tourists safety. So you can’t get that rural island photo anymore but that doesn’t take away from the incredible natural view.
The second is up and past the Rumah Pohon Treehouse. It’s one of the most Easternly points you can reach on Nusa Penida Island and if you have super strong vision you may be able to see Lombok!
The views from the Rumah Pohon Molenteng grounds are beautiful and waking up in the treehouse would be like something out of a movie!
