Things to see and do

  • Friends of National Park Foundation
    3.5 stars

    Near the village of Ped on Bali’s Nusa Penida, the Friends of the National Parks Foundation (FNPF) runs a programme aimed at protecting and boosting the numbers of the endangered Bali starling, or Bali mynah. ... read more

  • Weekend in Nusa Penida
    3.5 stars

    That flash of white cliff you see from Bali's Sanur hulking in the far distance shouldn't be ignored if you have a sense of adventure and want to get away from the busy south part of the island ... read more

  • Diving around Nusa Penida
    4 stars

    Nusa Penida is very well regarded for its diving, but the vast majority of divers visit here from either Nusa Lembongan or Bali. Crystal Bay, Manta Point and SD Point are the best known of Nusa Penida's dive spots. Manta Point is known for, well, manta rays but as was very clearly explained to us, ... read more

  • Snorkelling at Nusa Penida
    4.5 stars

    While Nusa Penida is most famous for its diving, it isn't too shabby when it comes to snorkelling. Three main spots are accessible to casual snorkellers.

    Known for its traditional clothmaking, Tanglad makes for a good diversion from the beach and provides an opportunity to explore the interior. The southeastern hub of Tanglad is a bit over an hour by motorbike from Toyo Pakeh, and half the pleasure of coming here is the ride. The cotton fabrics they ... read more

  • Banah cliffs
    4.5 stars

    This spectacular point on Nusa Penida's southern coast is one of simple breathtaking beauty. You will need a guide. At a height of some 200 metres, these sheer cliffs will, quite literally, take your breath away. That you're able to stand right at the very edge, with no security fencing and feel ... read more

  • Goa Karangsari
    3 stars

    Set midway between Sampalan and Suana, this is a large cave that pierces the hilltop and forms a pretty distraction. The actual entrance point is a miniscule crawlway at the summit of fifty or so steps from the road. Note this is a temple, so if you don't have one you'll need to rent a sarong and ... read more
