Nusa Penida Island, Nusa Penida

4.6
#2 of 9 in Parks in Nusa Penida
Unwind off the beaten track at Nusa Penida Island. Dive in its many colorful reefs, bike around the shore taking in the views, or picnic on the fine white sand of its beaches. Snorkeling and diving rank among the top things to do here, since the island remains best known for its marine life and coral. You'll find many diving schools in the area to help you out if needed. Blissfully free of mass tourism, the island also lacks Western-style restaurants and has only a few banks and ATMs, so come prepared. Make Nusa Penida Island part of your personalized Nusa Penida itinerary using our Nusa Penida trip itinerary planner.

Most tourist spots you can get there via dirt roads and steep and best equipped hospital is in Bali. -Don't eat EVER snorkelling alone (with a guide) there are very strong currents and especially when descending the cliff to go Kelingking Beach get SNEAKERS and avoid bathing, the waves are very high and the current is strong. We saw tourists in the beach and didn't look diffi or the elicottere coming to get you ... and unfortunately are very frequent cases of drowning in Nusa Penida. This review is written not to launch fear-mongering ... as in all places in the world you have to travel with your head and be aware of where you go ...
