Nusa Penida Island

Nusa Penida is an island just South of Bali located right next to Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. It is quite a large island with plenty of sights to see and things to do. Nusa Penida Island is off the beaten track for Bali tourists with just one main tourist strip and many rural areas. It is the perfect island to rent a car or scooter to explore amazing viewpoints and beautiful beaches such as Diamond Beach, Broken Beach and Manta Point. Nusa Penida Island is also known for its diving as the Mola Mola Sunfish and Manta Rays can be found around here. For more information on Nusa Penida Island, please check out our Nusa Penida blog and Nusa Penida Guide.
