The west side of the island is one of the most popular with visitors with so much to see and do. It's particularly good in the morning for snorkelling at Crystal, Gamat bay and Toyapakeh harbour but also good for sundowners and photos later in the afternoon.
Our package includes: hotel or harbour pick up and drop off; tour by car or scooter; experienced, knowledgeable guide; bottled water.
Drive through the scenic hills and and arrive at the beach that is known as Crystal Bay (the locals know it as Penida beach). Home to sparkling, clear waters with magnificent corals and tropical fishes. This is a popular spot for both snorkelers, divers and those that just want to enjoy the sun and pristine white sand set amidst beautiful scenery. It's really easy to access this beach by car or scooter.
Looking out at the sea, you will see a small temple set high on a rocky island. To the left of the beach are stairs which will take you up and over to neighbouring Pandan beach. Crystal bay is the perfect place to finish your day with a sundowner and camera in the other hand.
BROKEN BEACH / ANGEL BILLABONG & SMOKEY BAY
A popular destination with three attractions close to one another. This side of the island is known for its high cliffs and panoramic views.
Smoky bay is at its best at high tide. Waves crash against the cliffs sending a resounding boom sound through the air. The impact sends a burst of water into the air which gives the appearance of smoke hence the name.
We continue onwards to Broken Bay (Pasih Uug) situated a little further along the road. Once, a large cave accessed only by sea, it has lost its roof to become a magnificent gaping hole in the earth. Walk right around it or stand near the edge and look down at the beautiful blue waves coming onto a beach that can still only be accessed by boat in the right conditions.
Walking a short distance around weathered, volcanic rocks will bring you to Angel Billabong. At low tide it becomes an infinity pool, if you dare to climb down you can take a swim.
Continuing on from Banah cliff we come around to Karang Dawa viewpoint also known as Klingking beach. This is the view of Karang Dawa taken from above. Another spot to stop at to take in the sheer magnificence that is Nusa Penida.
