Nusa Penida Tourism

The hidden treasure of Indonesia, Nusa Penida is the most exotic of the three Nusa Islands and is relatively less travelled. Located in the Klungkung district, it is a little off the shores of Bali. During this season, the island is relatively dry and is fairly suited for activities like snorkelling, scuba diving and surfing. Despite these qualities, Nusa Penida is largely left unexplored and is awaiting tourists to explore this exotic destination. Pristine white sand beaches like Atuh and Nusa Penida beach draw tourists from around the world.

Nusa Penida is larger than its two sister islands, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, with improving tourist infrastructure. The nature of cliff formation as well as the number of Hindu temples on this island makes it more picturesque than its sisters. Known for preserving the endangered bird Bali Starling, this island’s famous attractions are the Crystal Bay sand beach and sunset panorama. Boats regularly move from mainland Bali to the three Nusa Islands, Nusa Penida being the last stop.

Must Know Before You Visit Nusa Penida
