Nusa Penida with Sunset, Sunrise and Sea View
Dewi Premiere Best Hotel in Nusa Penida with Sunset, Sunrise and Sea View. Home to completely flawless Kelingking Ocean side (which looks like a T-Rex from a higher place), the untainted island of Nusa Penida offers a rustic departure from the created hotels of southern Bali. Disconnected tidal ponds, secret bays, and less popular sea shores lie on pause for brave explorers.
Nusa Penida is the largest and most exotic of the 3 Nusa islands, thanks to its collection of unique Hindu temples and picturesque natural features of cliff formations and lagoons. More recently, the island became best known as the new sanctuary of the once-endangered Bali starling (originally an endemic species from the forested region of West Bali National Park) following a highly successful captive breeding programme.
Nusa Penida measures over 200 sq km – significantly larger than the popular Nusa Lembongan and its accessible sister island, Nusa Ceningan. Lesser-travelled compared to the other 2, Nusa Penida has a very limited number of hotels and tourist features. Even so, what it lacks in infrastructure, it makes up for with unspoiled natural beauty and rare cultural highlights. Dewi Premiere Best Hotel in Nusa Penida..
Things to do on Nusa Penida
Close to Penida’s white-sand beach of Crystal Bay, divers enjoy one of Bali’s best dive sites, where pristine coral reefs and Mola mola fish (also known as oceanic sunfish), manta rays and even whale sharks are among the seasonal sights. Besides diving in Nusa Penida, you can also find great visibility for snorkelling right near the shoreline. Some local shops selling refreshments right on the beach make for wonderful chill-out spots with sunset views.
Among Penida’s most famous temples is Goa Giri Putri, a Balinese Hindu temple set within a limestone cave in the village of Karangsari. It sees a steady flow of pilgrims from the Bali mainland visiting to pay their respects and ask for holy water and blessings.
The grand temple complex of Pura Penataran Ped in the northern coastal village of Ped is another popular monument to visit. There are other temples dotted along the island’s coast but be sure to visit the unique Pura Paluang temple in the village of Karangdawa on Penida’s southwestern cliffs – it has shrines resembling automobiles!
How Many Nights To Stay In Nusa Penida?
Nusa Penida is truly a hidden gem, where you can experience local life, nature and a relaxing time.
If you like this kind of island vibe, then you should stay here for a few days.
Where is the rush? Spend at least three days on this untouched island, and slowly sync in with the local slow pace of life.
Otherwise, there are plenty of day tours that will allow you to visit the best spots of Nusa Penida, such as Kelingking Beach, Broken Beach, Angel’s Billabong, and Crystal Bay, with the option of doing a full day of diving and snorkelling.
