While Bali could keep you entertained for weeks or even months, why see just one Indonesian island when you could see two? The craggy cliffs and clear waters of Nusa Penida make it a favourite among travellers in search of something more raw.
We’re taking you on a tour of the island’s eastern highlights by speed boat and air-conditioned shuttle. During our day in paradise, we’ll make the following stops:
Thousand Island Viewpoint: After cruising turquoise waters from Bali to Nusa Penida and boarding our vehicle for the day, we’ll reach the island’s most enchanting viewpoint. From here you’ll see countless islands, sweeping cliffs and, if you’re lucky, marine life the likes of turtles and manta rays.
Nusa Penida Tree House: Locally known as Rumah Pohon, this cosy cabin with a thatched roof benefits from its high vantage point. Climb a ladder up the tree trunk for the best panoramic views Nusa Penida can offer.
Teletubbies Hill: The rolling green hills of Nusa Penida will remind those who have been to the Philippines of beautiful Bohol. Like a giant tapestry stretching as far as the eye can see, this is the spot to snap your photos for the day.
Diamond Beach or Atuh Beach: After a busy day of sightseeing, we’ll stop for afternoon chills on one of Nusa Penida’s white sand beaches. Popular Diamond Beach and hidden Atuh Beach both have their charms. While Diamond Beach is better for snorkelling, Atuh is a serene hidden gem.
After lunch, we’ll begin the scenic boat ride back to Nusa Penida, looking out for sea life as we go. You’ll arrive home happy and windswept by late afternoon.
