Kelingking Beach

The very first spot you should have pinned on your map when looking at your things to do on Nusa Penida itinerary.

This T-Rex shaped cliff side at Kelingking Beach has rocketed tourism into the sky with it’s natural iconic beauty. Kelingking Beach itself is a secluded, white sandy haven surrounded by turquoise waters.

To get down to Kelingking Beach takes around an hour and you must go at your own risk. The bamboo railings are not greatly maintained and you shouldn’t put 100% of your weight on them.

Having said that, Kelingking Beach is a spot that cannot be missed on your things to do on Nusa Penida tour.

Kelingking Beach was the first and most beautiful stop of our Nusa Penida tour

Angel’s Billabong

Angel’s Billabong is a very beautiful, naturally formed infinity pool.

Nusa Penida is becoming more and more popular amongst tourists for it’s spectacular rock formations, although Angel’s Billabong is in a league of its own.

We really enjoyed this spot on our Nusa Penida tour purely because it’s the perfect place to hang out with friends and watch the ocean crashing over the side whilst cooling off from those sweaty walks.

Angel’s Billabong was definitely like something we’d never seen before

Just a short 5 minute trek around the corner from Angel’s Billabong comes another Instagram famous spot, Broken Beach.

The walk from Angel’s Billabong to Broken Beach – The middle two stops of our Nusa Penida tour

Broken Beach

Broken Beach is another one of the top picturesque destinations on Nusa Penida Island.

The arched tunnel allows the ocean to flow in making a natural pool and a great photo spot. This along with Angel’s Billabong are two of the most popular spots for Nusa Penida tours as they are two of closest attractions to the ferry port.

From Kelingking Beach, Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach were around a 45 minute journey by car or bike.

The blue waters at Broken Beach really were stunning

Crystal Bay Beach

Palm tree heaven!… and that’s all you need to know.

We were in our element at Crystal Bay with it’s aligned palm trees and private little beach. You have to venture through a whole jungle of trees before you get to it and it’s impossible to not stop and take a photo.

Of all the things to do on Nusa Penida, Crystal Bay Beach is the perfect spot to finish in! Save some time at the end of your Nusa Penida itinerary for soaking up the sun or catching a sunset to remember.

Crystal Bay definitely satisfied Charlie’s love for palm trees

Banah Cliff Point

If you’re looking for one of the best viewpoints on the island then Banah Cliff Point should definitely be on your things to do on Nusa Penida list.

We headed over early in the morning to catch a glimpse of the crazy cliff top lookouts and shimmering blue waters down below.

Banah Cliff Point is not always people’s top things to do on Nusa Penida, it depends what you’re into, but it’s definitely worth a stop. It’s peaceful and you feel on top of the world.

Tembeling Natural Pool

We were recommended by a local to check out the Tembeling Natural Pool and what a gem it was!

One of the lesser known things to do on Nusa Penida it’s used as a watering hole by the people that live nearby. We googled some photos and jumped at the chance of diving into the tropical blue waters. A random natural pool that appears in the middle of the Tembeling Beach and Forest trail.

Tembeling Natural Pool is not generally included in a Nusa Penida tour but if you get time to explore yourselves, you MUST stop here. It was one of our favourite things to do on Nusa Penida

Peguyangan Waterfall

Peguyangan Waterfall is an iconic spot for tourists and locals, most widely known for the Nusa Penida blue stairs.

We’d heard the waterfall was a little underwhelming, if not non existent, but the cliff edge views made up for it. So we headed to the Southern point of the island to find out for ourselves.

Peguyangan Waterfall – a spot that went viral on Instagram. It’s also a really interesting and beautiful walk down. BUT, be ready for the walk back up!

Atuh Beach

Rated one of the best beaches on Nusa Penida, the trip our East to Atuh Beach should definitely be one of the top things to do on Nusa Penida.

A fair drive from the west side of the island, where the majority of the tourist spots are located, although well worth the journey on a sunny day. Even amongst the down pour on one of our trips we could see how clear the water was and had a splash around anyway.

Atuh Beach was insanely beautiful, in the rain and at sunrise. It’s all the way out east but definitely make the time but adding it to your things to do on Nusa Penida list!

Rumah Pohon – The Nusa Penida Treehouse

Rumah Pohon Molenteng, or the Nusa Penida Treehouse, is one of the most noticeable accommodations on the island.

So we had to swing by and visit the magical place we’d seen online. It’s fair to say Rumah Pohon Treehouse is definitely one of the most random yet beautiful spots we’ve come across on our travels.

The Rumah Pohon Treehouse was stunning. You should definitely add this to your Nusa Penida itinerary!

Thousand Island Viewpoint

You can kill two birds with one stone by visiting Rumah Pohon and Thousand Island Viewpoint on your Nusa Penida tour.

The viewpoints is definitely one of the most spectacular spots on the island 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.

Charlie had been wanting to see the Thousand Island Viewpoint for so long so we had to tick it off on our own little Nusa Penida tour

Suwehan Beach

EDIT: 27/11/2018

*** THIS BEACH HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO A DEVASTATING NATURAL DISASTER *** 

The final stop of our Nusa Penida itinerary and it was like revisiting the Philippines.

The water from above at the lookout point at Suwehan Beach was blue beyond belief, and we couldn’t wait to get down the 342 steps to cool off. If you plan on visiting on your Nusa Penida tour though, make sure to check the tides first.
