Discover the Beautiful Island of Nusa Penida

Friday August 19, 2016 | by Daniel Goh | In Asia

The colour of the ocean in the photo above has not been edited at all - it’s naturally that blue. Such is the beauty that Nusa Penida has to offer. The Island paradise is a 30 minute ferry Southwest from Bali, offering a great getaway from saturated tourist beaches to untouched nature and amazing views.

Getting there is easy

Booking a day-tour to the island can easily be done at Sanur Beach, with many tour booths scattered along the beachfront. Alternatively, you could book a tour beforehand with Penida Tours and choose from a variety of itinerary options.

You won’t believe your eyes at Broken Beach

Pasih Uuh Beach, or Broken Beach, is a testament to how beautiful nature can be. There’s really no way to capture the beauty of this place in words. The crystal clear water has such a deep blue, the gentle sea breeze keeps you cool and the cliff sides stand proud and magnificent, enduring each wave.

Untouched and untainted as far as the eye can see; this is how I picture Paradise.

Dive with graceful Manta Rays


If you’re up for some snorkeling or diving, Manta Point is one of the places you could go to. Large Manta Rays frequent the waters here, elegantly gliding through the water. Swimming with these gentle giants truly is a grand opportunity.

Do note that if the water currents of the day are too strong, the guides will not allow you in the water.

Snorkel with the fishes at Crystal Bay

Crystal Bay is another fantastic diving and snorkeling location, acquiring its name from its crystal clear waters. It plays host to bright coral reefs and much marine life. Snorkeling gear is provided on the tour, including a fresh coconut to drink afterwards.

Relax in the water at Angel’s Billabong

Angel’s Billabong is a natural occurring infinity pool, overlooking the deep blue ocean. The water is crystal clear and reflects just like a mirror. If the current is okay, you can even go for a swim.
