Beautiful island with lots of culture to discover. Apparently the center of power of the Balinese Hindu religion lies here and locals swear the island has magical power. A few important temples can be found, such as the Ped temple and a cave temple called Pura Goa Giri Putri. The north coast has gorgeous lime stone cliffs hidden away temples.

We went to Nusa Penida from Sanur by boat to do two scuba dives. The first was off the coast of the west side of the island and a deeper dive so we coudl see the prehistory looking Mola Mola fish that are unbelievably large. This dive was not my favourite as it was really strong with currents, don't go... More

This Island is amazing. A lot of beautiful things to explore. But what makes it bad is because the acces to those places is really difficult and takes a long time. The roads are really bad. Hope they can make it better in the next time

Excellent brings you back n bali time! Loved the time with family - keep it clean when you leave please. Great tree house and we went camping in a secret spot. The food was great Indonesian and fresh fish. I kept busy snorkeling and spearing and cooking it up for my family.

Well worth a visit if you are sick of the crowds on Bali, Gillis, Lombok or Nusa Lembongan. I have been visiting Indonesia for the past 41 years travelling to many outlying islands. This place is a gem and so easy to access from neighbouring Bali. With boats from Sanur, Kasumba and Padang Bai. Easy to get around on a... More

You can reach the island in many ways, from Sanur, Padang Bai etc. I try from Sanur with Maruti speed boat, very cheap. If you use the car to the island then you must go to Padang Bai and use Roro ferry to Nusa Penida. There's no harbor in Sanur, go to the speed boat by walking to the shore... More

This tour is a SCAM. My husband and I are on our honey moon and have loved everything about Bali and this ruined it for us on our last day in this beautiful country. I don't even know where to start. We were picked up at 6:30 by our diver who took us to the port and stayed with us... More
