Viability of Penida Island

Beaches Diamond and Suwehan
Two beach on the southeastern coast of Nusa Penida, which combine completely chic rocky rocks, white sand, emerald blue water and hard-to-reach. Although the sake of justice it should be noted that the descent to the beach of Dimond (Diamond Beach) is much easier and safer than the descent to the Beach of Suvekhan.
Diamond Beach is located next to ATUH Beach, so this beach is more ; Caught ;. Massive steps are carved in the rock, at the entrance ; Mobile kiosk with drinks and snacks, and cute photo-spot with ; nest ; and swings over the ocean. Walking on the beach is not recommended, by virtue of strong trends and big waves. But walk around the beach ; pure pleasure. On the way from parking to the beach there are couples of very spectacular view-punctors.
Further along the coast is located Suwehan Beach. Completely gorgeous views on top, but the descent is not for the faint of heart. During the tide, the beach is almost completely overlapping. In the tump ; on the beach nicely walk, swim, however, it is not recommended here.
The most famous Nusa Beach Penida, who, however, attend a few. With the view-Point on the rocks (see above), not very reliable steps were laid down, so it is necessary to descend as much as possible. Descent takes about 30-40 minutes. Beach, naturally and expected, beautiful. But it is impossible to swim here, maximum ; Walk along the water, jump in the waves. In the beach area ; Very strong flows and big waves. Come here early in the morning or closer in the late afternoon, to break up with tourist groups from Bali.
Crystal Bay Bay
The crystal bay is located pretty close to the main infrastructure of the island, so getting here is the easiest way. Big beach, palm trees, umbrellas, sun beds, puffs and folding chairs, cafes and varunga, hire of masks ; In general, this beach, in contrast to all the above-mentioned interesting beaches of Podidids ; The one that neither is the usual beach of Yuva, on which it is nice to spend the day floating with a mask, a lazyman, reading a book and drinking a cocktail)
Nuta Pools Nusa Penida
Natural pools created by nature in the rocks by the ocean ; Feature of the landscape of Nusa Penida. Special attention here has three places ; The aforementioned infinity ; Pool Angel&# 8217; S BILLABONG, natural pools Tembeling and natural pools PEGUYANGAN waterfall.
Infinity ; Pool Angel&# 8217; S BILLABONG
Very unique place ; Pretty large swimming pool formed by cliffs and outgoing to the open ocean. Here you can swim, but only in the tump, when the ocean is low and the waves do not reach the pool itself. In tides and storms, do not even think to descend into the water and even more so approach the edge of the pool.
This place is included in the list of the most popular places of the island, so there are always a lot of people here. Plan a trip earlier morning or closer in the late afternoon to have a chance to stay here alone or at least in a small company)
Natural pools Tembeling
In the natural sources forming natural pools Tembeling (Tembeling) leads a pedestrian trail with a mass of steps through a picturesque rainforest. A little further from the pools ; Stony beach Tembeling and caves, in which a large number of pagodas of stones are folded. Very beautiful and atmospheric place, not yet very popular among tourists. Plan to hold a minimum of half a day!)
Natural Pools PEGUYANGAN Waterfall
PEGUYANGAN rock waterfall, located on the southern coast of the island, flows directly to the ocean (read below), the mass of wooden steps are laid on the slope of the rock. Next to the waterfall, under the rock ; Natural sources that form small pools, descending with a cascade to the edge of the cliff, which overlooks the ocean. There are usually not much more people here, as this place is much less popular and rarely included in the standard routes of Nusa Penida.
Two rocky waterfalls are located on the southern coast of the island ; The aforementioned Peguyangan and Seganing. Immediately it is worth noting that the waterfalls of Nusa Penida ; These are not waterfalls Bali) You will not find here powerful cascades of water and riveting greenery. Both waterfall fall from rocks to the ocean and both require a lot of desire and quite a lot of effort to get here and wash the ice water. To both waterfalls are ladders on the rocks.
The descent to PEGUYANGAN waterfall is definitely much easier and more picturesque, the wooden staircase leads to the waterfall, opening completely stunning views in some places on the descent. Descent takes about 30 minutes. At the bottom ; In addition to a waterfall, sources with nodulane pools and a small temple.
To the descent to the Seganing waterfall, we recommend thoroughly to prepare, correctly planning the time and taking with you trekking shoes, as the descent here in some places is very unpleasant. This experience will delight only adventurers and lovers of mountains.
The most famous temple of the island ; Goa Giri Putri ; Massive current temple located in a large cave on the east coast of the island. In addition, there are many small temples on Penida, the visit to which will give the opportunity to get closer to the local culture. Many temples are located on the rocks, so planning the daytime route to check the chambers on the path in which you can stop.
The name of this place is translated as a hill telepusikov) In our humble opinion, this area is rather reminiscent of the glorious country of bonding than the world of telepulic. This is the depth of the island ; With massive green hills forming fabulous landscapes, rice terraces and tiny villages. There is no special infrastructure, so reserve food, water and gasoline, planning a trip to the island deep.
Snorkeling with manta rods
Huge caught manta ; One of the incredible creatures of nature living in the ocean. These incredible giants can be unchecked, but, fortunately, for residents and guests of Nusa Penida Manta chose a large bay on the west coast of the island and you can meet almost with anyway. Mantans are not dangerous for a person, but nevertheless in the water should be held at a respectful distance from the giant.
Local snorkeling tour on Penida can be booked in Crystal Bay Bay, or through any of the local guests. Plan a separate day to meet with marts, since after this experience you will only want to relax on the beach or by the pool. Booking a tour, remember that you will have to swim in the ocean, where the flows even in the bays at the shore are quite strong, so expect your strength, respectively.
