Kelingking Beach, Nusa Penida

Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Set against the backdrop of a verdant limestone headland that resembles a T-Rex head with the mouth wide open, Kelingking Beach remains one of the best kept secrets on the island. The trek down to this secluded beach requires a bit of rock climbing on the way back up, so many visitors are quite happy to stay on a viewing platform taking selfies and enjoying the vistas over the hills and deep blue waters. If you do dare to tackle a rugged, cliff-side path secured only partially with bamboo railings, do it during low tide when the sea is calmer. A restaurant on the top of the hill offers refreshments, but it would be wise to take water with you nevertheless. Using our custom trip planner, Nusa Penida attractions like Kelingking Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The Primo photo op spot on Nusa Penida! Crowds of tourists and influencers flock to the well worn outcrop above this beach to take a selfie. The best experience remains to be had on the sands below...  more »
  • Bring your professional camera, including a drone if possible! Exactly we can go down to get the unbelievable beach and high cliff view!  more »
  • It was last year when I visited Nusa Penida, Bali. At that time I thought Kelingking Beach is only beautiful at photos. I wasn’t expecting too much, but when me and my family arrived at Kelingking...  more »
  • I can't say more. This place is absolutely stunning. A mission to ride your scooter here. But trust me this is absolutely worth it. Unbelievable views, make sure you have enough time to hike down to the beach, that's even better. After a hard hike, what better to do than reward yourself with a lovely swim in the ocean. Best experience yet
  • You have an amazing view from above where you can take a lot of good photos. But there are a lot of daily tour tourists so better go a little bit away from them if you have time. If you go down to the beach bring good shoes because the way down and up again you need to climb. But once you arrived down at the beach its amazing. The waves are too big so you cant swim but its quite funny.
  • It's nice and very challenging. You need to have good condition and strong leg if you want to find this Beach. Many tourist come here just for pictures and just few of them dare to go down. The steps to going down are natural but thanks to the locals because they make handle from wood and it's strong enough for me. It's easier when step up like wall climbing. But when you are arrive, it's all worth it.
  • Equal if not harder than Mt Batur. A well established trail but you will be navigating small spaces and steep terrain. Shoes are helpful. Nothing worthwhile comes without some pain. With that being said, it was amazing and unreal. Unless you know how to ride a scooter really well, rent a car for the west tour @550 a day.
  • What a view! Prepare your trip: be ready to cross some very rocky-stony roads before arriving. It is doable with a scooter if you are willing to take your time and be careful. If you go there by car, with a driver, it will take a bit more time (I guess), but at least you will have air-co in the car :) Bring some good shoes and a lot of water! Seriously. Don’t go there in flip flops as you will have a very very demanding walk down the cliff. But hey, once you arrive down the cliff, the spectacle is even more impressive! Clear water and sand, powerful waves... bonus: from the top of the cliff you can see some manta rays (if you zoom in in some of my pictures you will probably see some diamond/square shaped creatures in the water).
