Awesome Things to do in Nusa Penida
1. Karang Dawa and Kelingking Beach
First place I visit when arrived at Nusa Penida. The view from Karang Dawa is totally magnificent. Going here from the port will take around 45 minutes port. From here, there is a path leading down to kelingking beach. Go down and climb back is very steep. It isn’t easy and if you don’t think you can do it, just enjoy the view from the top like I did. If you want to go down, prepare your sport shoes, don’t use your sandals.
2. Angel’s Billabong
A stunning natural infinity pool in Nusa Penida with its emerald and crystalline waters. Very fresh and clear water. The place is believed to be a nymph bathing place by local residents, maybe the swimming pool for the angels ;). It’s a long and wide pool guarded by cliffs on each side. Be careful when you go down here, because small path with the sharp reef and don’t forget to use you sandals or shoes because it was hurt stepping the reef.
3. Broken Beach
Broken Beach or also called Pasih Uug Beach. From the name itself ” Pasih Uug Beach” in Balinese language means as a damaged beach. It is look like a bridge which has a huge hole in the middle of the cliff. It is a little bit quite compare to other beaches in Bali because of the remoteness area and it has a perfect combination of two nature attractions from the green hills to blue sea attractions.
