Kelingking Beach – An ULTIMATE Guide To Visiting

Kelingking Beach in Nusa Penida Bali is up there with one of the most amazing views and beaches we’ve seen. So here’s all you need to know for your visit.

This T-Rex shaped cliff side at Kelingking Beach has rocketed tourism into the sky with it’s natural iconic beauty. Thanks to social media, Instagram especially, this view point is now top of most people’s lists of attractions when heading over to Bali.

How To Get To Kelingking Beach

If you plan on exploring the island yourself by moped, they usually cost 70,000 Rupiah and you can rented directly from the harbour.

If you’re on a private Nusa Penida tour then Kelingking Beach will usually be the first place your tour guide stops. The first day of our Penida trip we took a day tour with @balinusapenidatour who covered all the touristic spots with ease.

Costs

To enter the Kelingking Beach carpark there’s just a small price of 10,000 Rupiah but there are no further fees for the tourist attraction.

You can also grab yourself something to eat whilst you’re there and luckily tourism hasn’t completely taken over the food prices yet. We grabbed a vegetable Nasi Goreng for 20,000 Rupiah!

T-Rex Head Photo Points

We found four angles from which we could capture a cool photo with the famous T-Rex head. Although there must be hundreds more.

1. The spot where everybody gets their famous photo. Before you hit the steps there’s a flat piece of concrete where you can sit and get your shot. This area cannot be missed as tourists will be queuing up waiting in turn for their potential new profile pictures.

2. The typical exploring stairway shot. On our way down this was easy enough to capture on our GoPro.

3. On our way out we found a spot behind the cafes and restaurants. It’s probably easier to get it on the way in from the entrance. We hopped over the fence and grabbed a quick romantic photo but please, do this at your own risk!

4. If you carry on from spot number there, you will find a walkway way that will eventually bring you out up to a side on view of the T-Rex head. This was definitely one of our favourite angles!

The Beach Itself

Kelingking Beach itself is a secluded, white sandy haven surrounded by turquoise waters.

The walk down to the beach takes around an hour and is only secured with a bamboo rail. They are not greatly maintained so please don’t put 100% of your weight on them and be safe if you venture down!

      Hey Magali! Thanks so much 😁 it’s actually quite quiet at the beach because of how hard the trek down and up is. The earlier the better for the lighting though! 🙌🏼

    Hi, came across your blog. Nice guide you have here!

    is the hike down to the beach an hour? That seems like a long way, and a hike back up would probably take over an hour? so in total, it would be at least 3 hours to spend there?

    • July 30, 2018 / 3:48 am

      Hey Cat! Thanks very much 🙂 yes that’s right because of the dangerous steps it takes around an hour to get down but is much quicker on the way up!

    Hello! This is a very helpful blog! ☺️ I’d like to ask, what time did you start your Kelingking-Angel’s Billabong-Crystal Beach trip?

    • August 3, 2018 / 11:45 am

      Hey Pau! Thanks so much. We got an early ferry at around 7.30am so think the trip started around 9am and we were done around 3/4pm.

    Hello! your blog has really provided me with enough knowledge and it very well written with beautiful pictures. Bless you both for the detailed knowledge you have showered us with :).
    I have a small question though if you could please answer, what is the cheapest means of transport that go from Sanur harbor to Nesu Penida, what are the timings and the cost per person?

    Thanks!
