Imagine finding a hidden beach, tucked away behind green-covered limestone headland and nestled on crystal clear azure waters. Secret Point Beach on Nusa Penida is just that; a hidden secret. Reminiscent of the most terrifying dinosaur of them all, this unique formation is nicknamed “T-Rex Bay”. Enjoy Balinese cuisine before your decent at one of the food outlets. Take in the scenery from the platform and all along the 400m hike down to the secluded, pristine beach. The hike is certainly worth it, Kelingking Beach is a photographer’s delight. Once your feet are in the sand, take more pictures and enjoy the quiet, remoteness of this incredible place. Enjoy the low tide and wade in the warm Indian Ocean waters looking up at the magnificent limestone cliffs.
Referred to as Pura Paluang by the locals which translates to Car Temple, this is undoubtedly one of the most unique temples on the entire island. The Car Temple features a shrine designed with vintage cars and peculiar platforms as part of its landscape. To add to the appeal, even the locals have no real idea how these designs came to be and it is often the spot of deep meditations, prayers and worship. The serenity and uniqueness of the entire atmosphere makes it a spot you cannot afford to miss out on!
From its rugged path, the natural infinity pool lined by arches of huge roughly formed rocks and the spectacular cliff edges, the Angel’s Billabong offers you the best spots for pictures and sightseeing. While the waters may not be suitable for swimming during rough tides, the broken beach is a sight to behold as it is also lined with natural limestone arches over the clear blue water. Angel’s Billabong is a favorite tourist spot and the reason for this is very clear, shades of blue and green water, an amazing backdrop for some of the most epic vacation pictures and all of the fresh Nusa Penida air you can get!
Exploring the Peguyangan Waterfall brings you in close proximity with some of the best views of the Nusa Penida hillside. The waterfall itself sits at the bottom of some of the most iconic cliffs and the pathway is lined by what is perhaps the most interesting series of stairways and steps ever made. With more than 700 steps, the walk is not for the faint hearted but is definitely an exciting adventure as the final destination is worth the wait. There is a serene little temple at the end of the walk where the families and locals visit and an ocean pool to add the real essence of the natural lifestyle to the entire scenery.
While broken beaches may be fairly common in Nusa Penida, this one is undoubtedly the most famous and epic of them all. The beach is a favorite destination for photographers and travellers alike as it not only provides a refreshing experience, the sights and backdrops are like none you have ever seen. The rather famous landmark of the broken beach is its arched tunnels located in the cliff that provides a smooth pathway for the ocean to flow into a pool. The two-hour ride leading up to the clear blue water and phenomenal rock formation is a ride that is worth it as the broken beach is as picturesque as it can get!
