Beautiful Indonesia: Nusa Penida Adventures

Nusa Penida is the largest island in the group of islands to the east of southern Bali. Nusa Penida is famous for its rugged landscape, unreal cliffs, stunning vistas, blue water, huge pelagic marine life and coral reefs, and authentic Balinese culture.

The Travel Lush gives a good run down on this gorgeous island, however a few not to miss attractions include the gorgeous beach Crystal Bay, not only is this beautiful for swimming and sunset, it is a dive site famous for Mola-Mola sightings. You can also see Manta Point another dive site famous for the Manta Rays that frequent the area for feeding. From the cliff top you can see the manta rays swimming around close to the surface.

Penida has so many amazing activities it could take you days to cover all the beautiful water falls, beaches, hikes, vistas and cultural hot spots on this island. It is definitely worth a trip! You can explore with an organized tour, or rent a motorbike and explore on your own. The tourism here is not as busy as the surrounding islands so you really feel like you are on an authentic Indonesian island adventure.

Check out more photos and details on Penida's smaller neighbor, Nusa Lembongan from the past post Beautiful Indonesia: Nusa Lembongan Island Side.
