Nusa Penida is a world away

Nusa Penida, part of Bali’s Klungkung province, is a world apart from the tourist magnet Bali, only one hour away. Despite its small size, Nusa Penida has its share of sights. Crystal Bay is an idyllic cove that fronts a coral reef and more experienced divers and snorkellers can swim with manta rays and reef sharks in Toyapakeh and at Malibu Point. If you go do not expect any tourist infrastructure, as you are on your own.

The Friends of the National Park Foundation on Nusa Penida welcomes visitors for short stays but book ahead as space is limited. The basic but comfortable accommodation costs from $12 for a dormitory bed to $30 for a double room, there is also a family room.
