Watch the sunset on Crystal Beach
Crystal Beach is prized for the vibrant underwater scene, matched only by the scenery above the surface. You can get yourself some adventure on the water while waiting for the sunset or simply kick back and relax on the smooth white sand, coconut drink in hand. A beautiful bay surrounded by palms, great for snorkeling and even better to watch the sunset. Right in front of the bay is a small island with a temple located on top that you can visit as well.
Take the boat to Nusa Penida
The boats to Nusa Penida usually leave from Sanur several times a day, depending on the operator. It takes about 30 minutes to reach the island from the port in Sanur. Taking the afternoon trip would be ideal to get the most of your 24 hours, as you’ll be traveling in daylight and have better time blocking for all the highlights — sunsets, early morning market, and more adventures.
Visit the viewpoint of Kelingking Beach
Kelingking viewpoint and Kelingking beach are what made Nusa Penida popular. You can climb all the way down from the top viewpoint to the beach, which might be the most difficult beach to reach in Bali. Besides, it would be nice to start with the very spot that has become the island’s icon, with its famed T-Rex cliff and stunning secret nook. You can descend all the way down to the inviting, white sandy beach or be content with the magnificent view from the top of the cliff.
Visit Peguyangan Waterfall
On the South East cliffs of Nusa Penida, there is a hike where you can’t be afraid of heights. The walk is a 150-meter iron blue stairs, which takes you to the bottom of the cliff and shows you the most scenic areas. At the foot, there are a temple and a small waterfall with fresh water. But the views from the hike are way more spectacular.
Dinner the local way
While you’re in this exotic small island, get yourself a nice seafood dinner. Go to the nearby warung to get freshly caught produce and spicy, savory condiments, prepared the locals’ way. Order a portion of rice to go with everything to give you enough energy for the next adventure. That’s how Indonesians do it anyway.
