Nusa Islands Trip
Nusa Islands are located just off coast of the mainland Bali. They consist of 3 Islands; Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan. A visit to Bali
isn’t complete without visiting at least one of these beautiful. Nusa Penida is known for its pristine beauty and wild adventure while Nusa Lembongan offers a more laidback atmosphere. Bespoke Indonesia Holiday offers a wide range of activity on the islands including handpicked selections of accommodations to maximize your experience on the islands.
Nusa Penida sits right to Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. These three islands are known as Nusa Islands, with Nusa Penida being the largest, the wildest, and the most unique. It has strong cultural influences with many unique and beautiful Hindu Temples. It is home to jaw-dropping landscape featuring dramatic cliffs, white-sand beaches with palm trees lapped by crystal clear blue water, and fascinating natural pools and caves.
Best places to visit in Nusa Penida can be divided into three areas: The West, East and South. The west is probably the most popular part of Nusa Penida which gets the most number of visitors. Popular sites include Kelingking Cliff & Beach, Broken Beach, Angel’s Billabong, and Crystal Bay. If you have more time and prefer a slightly less popular site to visit, then we would recommend exploring the East part. East Nusa Penida sites include: Giri Putri Cave Temple, Raja Lima lookout, the breathtaking Atuh Beach, Diamond Beach, and Suwehan Beach. Now last but not least, offering a different experience and the beautiful part that gets the least exposure – the South region. South Nusa Penida sites include Tembeling Natural Pool, Banah Cliff Point, and Peguyangan Waterfall.
The seascape life of Nusa Penida water is as stunning as the landscape. Famous for MolaMola (seasonal) and Manta rays, Nusa Penida is also rich in other marine life and pristine coral reefs making it a fantastic snorkeling and diving destination. Nusa Penida popular dive sites include Crystal Bay, Gamat Bay, Malibu Point, Toya Pakeh, Mantai Point, Sental, Vertigo Point, PED, and SD.
