We were so glad we found this island. We chose to spend our entire week there instead of Bali. It was quiet, beautiful, and easy to get around. And overnight tourists are still rare. Diving and snorkeling were amazing, and awesome views of the cliffs and sea were everywhere. Highly recommended.

When I arrived at Nusa Penida I was really surprised at how few tourists there are. It felt like what Bali used to be which is ideal for a place to escape. I felt like the locals made a killing of the tourists as everything only had one price, no negotiation or bargaining. Since the island is so small there... More

Nusa Penida is the Lovzely small islet with stunning views surrounding the islets include Nusa Lembongan and the eastern view is Lombok corner. The islet contains few informant temples and less density of population inside. To get to this place available from several ways; Padangbai, Kusamba and Sanur. There is also smaller islet Lembongan nearby but I have been there,... More

Most people do not know about Nusa Penida when they go on to Bali, and for a good reason - it's quite a hassle to get to, not very developed, and doesn't have the usual tourist highlights. But this is the ideal destination if you're looking for a quiet place to unwind and decompress. It has very little traffic -... More

Don't count on much in the way of tourist services, but if you aren't afraid to rent yourself a moped with no helmet and drive around the island, then there are treasures to behold including amazing dive spots with turtles and manta rays and Hindu Monastary caves where they give out free holy water.

Fantastic (yet) unspoiled nature island. Get her fast before heavy tourism takes over. It's worth the trip!

Far from all development, technology, tourism... Perfect place to relax, the island is the biggest of the 3 Nusa island and less developed. You can barely see foreigner or tourist there but lots of local and have a real taste of their culture and how they live. The main attraction is nature, beautiful landscape and wonderful sightseeing The snorkling is... More

Slow and relaxed. Interesting and beautiful. Take your time, get a moped and go explore. This island is great for some chill out time away from Bali and even Nusa lembongan. There are many interesting sites and local villages to explore really away from the crowds and the locals can be very welcoming. we had a cracking few days here,... More

Fabulous island, nicely off the beaten track. Just a few things to be aware of. We were only on the island two days but witnessed two motor cycle accidents, one quite serious, we had to stop and take the injured party to hospital, the other was a novice, no serious injury but wrecked the bike. I reckon a lot of... More

Nusa Penida was the best island I had the luck to visit yet... Me and my wife got there from Bali's Sanur port to spend there a part of our honeymoon/Christmas/New Year's tour and this stop was pretty amazing! Just a few tourists (actually we were meeting the same faces from time to time during our stay so really just... More
