Broken Beach at Pasih Uug Beach
If you want to see a unique cliff formation, the Broken Beach is pretty Instagramable. The cliff has this big concave formation in the middle so it’s like the cliff has a hole in the middle. You can walk around and even across the rock bridge that is formed naturally.
Going up and down the stairs can be a challenge but the blue stairs are worth the efforts. From there, you can see the magnificent coastal cliff –and the vast ocean. As if it weren’t enough, you still go to view the waterfall and see the sacred temple.
Pulau Seribu (Thousand Island) Viewpoint
Some people may refer to it as Pulau Seribu or Thousand Island. If you explore the areas, there are some viewpoints with solid structures and fences for the safety of the tourists. Be aware, though, that you may have to climb up or down the stairways – and they can be pretty steep. But the view is worth the efforts and you will be presented with a paradise – right in front of your eyes!
If you come to the second viewpoint, you should reach the Tree House. You can take pictures with the Tree House as the background. Some people may even stay so they can enjoy the sunrise from the balcony.
If you come to Broken Beach, it would be a good idea to visit Angel’s Billabong along the way because it isn’t far away. During clear and bright days, you only need to walk to the cliff’s edge and look down. The water is super clear, enabling you to see the marine lives and the colorful corals.
In the event you come there when the tide is low, it is possible to swim within the pool. It will make you feel as if you were swimming in a natural infinity pool. However, the tide can be high and strong so you aren’t supposed to swim in the pool (during the higher tides) so you won’t be washed out onto the sea.
This is another popular spot in Nusa Penida because of several reasons. The beautiful clear water enables you to see Manta Rays swimming below. And the T-Rex shape of a cliff is definitely a million worth of photo! You can go to the cliff as long as you are being careful. Wear comfy and non-slip shoes for your safety.
