Nusa Penida: The Island of Gods, Untouched VersionBlog
Off the coast of Sanur, Bali, lies an island called Nusa Penida. Famous for its naturally carved mineral and clear blue water, this island is genuinely one of the most beautiful islands in the Bali province. As tourism is rising on this island, this island had become more accessible to tourist. Additionally, everything here is delivered and supported by the local, making everything is relatively cheaper and you will directly support the local. Here are some spots you might take into consideration while visiting this amazing island.
Let’s start with the most popular one, you might already saw this beach somewhere from the travel magazine to tropical house music’s cover. You have to experience this stunning scenery with your eyes, as according to me, the camera didn’t do justice to capturing this beauty. The beach itself is surrounded by massive rock carved from the wind and the ocean throughout decades. As this mineral sit here, vegetation grew on them giving the authentic scenery that you can find exclusively on Nusa Penida. It’s not recommended to hike down the rocks as it is quite far down with challenging track, it would take you one hour to hike down and another hour to hike up. However, you’re more than welcome to hike down this spot as it will reward you with even more stunning view on every corner.
Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach
Prepare your swimsuit, Angel’s Billabong is next. Here we can enjoy the tidal infinity pool with the amazing ocean view. The waves continuously slam the rock and filling the dent with refreshing salt water every minute. However, everyone is expected to be cautious at any time as the waves is really strong and swimming near the open ocean is not recommended
Not far from Angle Billabong, lies the Broken Beach. This beach used to be a massive cave; nonetheless, the roof collapsed exposing the natural beauty of beach underneath the cave. This spot is definitely a place you don’t want to miss as the natural beach caged with surrounding rocks is considered very untouched. The beach itself can be considered as a virgin beach due to its inaccessibility from the ground.
Both of this spot is in the remote area of the island; thus, having knowledge of the area and spots is crucial. Yet, this place is swarmed by local and international tourist.
Raja Lima and Atuh Beach
Raja lima or five kings is the cluster of exposed minerals that had been eroded over time, some of the mineral breaks of from the main island and turn out to be the towering rock with vegetation on top of it. In addition, there’s accommodation in this area called ‘rumah pohon’ so you can stay here to enjoy the sunrise where the cottage is literally built on the side of the cliff, exposing all the nature and beauty like no other place. Similarly, Atuh Beach beach offers clean and untouched sands and water; however, unlike most of the beaches we have mention, you can swim and dive in this beach, just be careful of the raging waves. Both of this amazing scenery is in the most western part of the island. Hence, it is recommended for you to stay on this island overnight rather than to drive directly from the port (eastern island) to this spot.
Obviously, this article didn’t cover everything Nusa Penida has to offer, you can hike their mountain, snorkel and dive to catch manta ray and underwater Buddha, or do an island hoping to Nusa Lembongan or other islands in Bali province. The choice is in your hand and you can decide what suits you and you can consult with our friendly trip advisor to plan your trip.
