Nusa Penida

4.1
The bounty of pristine white-sand beaches and turquoise lagoons bordered by emerald green hills, unique cliff formations, and colorful reefs is what draws most travelers to Nusa Penida. The largest and most exotic of the three islands, Nusa Penida boasts such scenic sights that you'll return from your Bali holiday with out-of-this-world photos. Although many Nusa Penida tours revolve around its unspoiled natural beauty, there are still plenty of things to see and do for those pursuing history and culture. Cultural highlights include a collection of Hindu temples--nestled in coastal villages, perched upon cliffs and set within limestone caves--where dark spirits banished from the Bali mainland are worshipped by locals and pilgrims. Here you won't find fashionable beach clubs or trendy restaurants, but picturesque natural features and rich wildlife. To arrange what you want to do in Nusa Penida, use our Indonesia online road trip planner.

Where to stay in Nusa Penida

Less popular among tourists compared to the other two Nusa islands, Nusa Penida has a limited number of luxury hotels but still plenty of accommodations overall, including those for savvy travelers that combine the island life with modern facilities, as well as hostels for budget backpackers. The largest concentration of villas, bungalows, and inns is on the north side of the island right along the coast. If you prefer a countryside location, a variety of cozy cottages offer options tucked away in the jungle.
