Nusa Penida, from isolated to unmissable

With an area of over 200km², its high cliffs, forested hills, turquoise waters and rich and surprising seabed, Nusa Penida has become a must-see in Bali!

Much larger than its two sisters (Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan), Nusa Penida is an island located in the south east of Bali. It has long served as a place of exile for criminals, political opponents and practitioners of black magic. The ancients were convinced that the king of demons, Jero Gede Macaling, had taken refuge there after being driven out of Bali. These legends gave the island a bad reputation for a long time, allowing it to maintain a certain isolation until now...

Today, it is possible to visit the many impressive viewpoints of the island such as Broken Beach, Angel's Billabong, Saren Cliff or Kelingbing Beach, the most famous.

But it is mainly its seabed that has made Nusa Penida famous, with over 290 species of coral and 570 species of reef fish. Manta rays can be seen all year round and sunfish (also called "Mola Mola") from July to November with exceptional visibility.
