Kelingking Beach Nusa Penida

Kelingking Beach Nusa Penida is a prominent tourist attraction located on Nusa Penida Island, Bali, celebrated for its pristine white sandy beach. It is well-regarded as a popular diving spot, with Manta Point being a top attraction due to its population of Manta fish, the world's largest stingray species. This picturesque beach offers visitors a unique and captivating sight. The island of Nusa Penida, positioned in Klungkung Regency, is often referred to as a hidden paradise in Bali. The island's natural beauty has been largely preserved due to minimal development, making it a desirable destination for both domestic and international travelers seeking to experience unspoiled nature. Visitors can reach Kelingking Beach from Bali by flying into Ngurah Rai Airport (DPS), the island's sole airport. From there, they can travel to the port of Sanur and board a fast boat to Nusa Penida Island. This fast boat service is available from 7 am to 5 pm. If a visitor's arrival time does not coincide with the boat schedule, a stay in Bali is recommended before continuing the journey the following day. The ferry ride from Sanur Harbour to Nusa Penida Island takes approximately 40 minutes, with tickets available for purchase at the port or online in advance to guarantee a seat. The beach is located at the bottom of a steep downhill descent, which can be somewhat strenuous but is generally considered rewarding by visitors. From the parking lot, which requires a fee, visitors can walk to the starting point of the descent. The journey down to the beach takes about 20 minutes, while the return trip up the hill typically takes around 30 minutes. The path is equipped with two ropes for support, but the irregular and small steps can make the climb particularly tiring. Despite its popularity, Kelingking Beach maintains a well-kept appearance. The beach is frequently busy, with many visitors attracted by the spectacular cliff views. Viewing terraces are available for an additional fee, but a less crowded alternative viewpoint near the parking area also offers stunning views of the cliff. Local vendors provide amenities such as water and towel rentals, although visitors are advised to bring their own supplies, including appropriate footwear, clothing, sunscreen, water, and food, as these items are sold at a higher price on the beach. The beach's ambiance is enhanced by the soothing sound of sea waves crashing against the shoreline, complementing the breathtaking natural scenery.
