About Nusa Penida: Angel’s Billabong
To get here is a pain in the ass, but after you suffered for at least an hour on your motorbike you found a magical spot. This natural pool seems the perfect spot to swim but be careful. Unfortunately a bunch of people died here already when massive waves slam into the natural pool. And drag people back into the ocean down below.
Try not to come here in the morning or at the end of the day as this spot is always part of a Nusa Penida day trip, around mid day this place is not too busy.
About Nusa Penida: Broken Beach
Just a couple minutes walk from Angel’s Billabong you will find the remains of what once was a massive cave. This spectacular place is definitely one of the best places to see in Nusa Penida. If you have time continue your hike along the rough coastline with its massive cliffs.
About Nusa Penida: Kelingking Beach viewpoint
When it comes down to most instagrammable spots in Nusa Penida the dinosaur shaped Kelingking Beach. Or Secret Point Beach is for sure number one.
When I reached this spot I had no clue what was coming and then I suddenly looked down. On that beautifully green rockformation sticking out of the deep blue ocean, the white sand beach 100 meters down below and the massive limestone cliffs on my right!
