Nusa Penida Day Trips
Pick your Paradise on Nusa Penida
It’s hard to come up with a list of the best reasons for visiting Bali, what with the perks being so plentiful. However, the region’s close proximity to endless islands all their own would definitely make the cut. Nusa Penida is a tranquil island upon the Indonesian archipelago, and there just so happens to be some really cool tours that specialise in it. Whether you want to embark on a full-day fast boat tour or spend the day swimming with manta rays is totally up to you.

Take a Fast Boat
After getting transported from your own hotel, this Nusa Penida day tour picks you up by boat at Sanur Beach. By way of sea, you’ll make it to your local host on Nusa Penida, a small island known for its beautiful beaches and quaint atmosphere.
Kelingking Beach is the first stop on this tour, and rightfully so. It’s home to epic grassy peninsulas, with unapologetic cliff faces jutting out over the Indian Ocean. In our opinion, it’s the perfect welcome to Nusa Penida, whose ecological aesthetic ought not to be missed.
Broken Beach, known to locals as Pasih Uug, also finds a spot on the tour’s itinerary. Crystal blue waters and one-of-a-kind land formations practically beg for a photo op. Meanwhile, Angel’s Billabong—a natural pool that swimmers can see far down into—leaves little to the imagination, and we love it.
The tour finishes up at Crystal Bay, a popular spot for travelers from all over. Here, you’ll see just why scuba divers and snorkelers never fail to frequent this majestic Indonesian island.
Swim With Manta Rays
If you’re aching for a bit of underwater adventure, Nusa Penida is the place to be. Its submarine environment is absolutely breathtaking (and not just because there’s no air down there). By choosing this tour, you’ll get the chance to snorkel alongside manta rays and much more.
The snorkeling itself is not the only pro of this trip. The boat ride to each swimming site, complete with cliff-side views and coastal vistas, is a wonder in and of itself. It’s at these moments you may be most drawn to this nature lover’s paradise.
Manta Bay is a protected area on Nusa Penida. It’s saturated with plankton and—as such—massive and majestic manta rays, many of whom expand to a wing span of four or five meters. You’ll also get to snorkel at places like Crystal Bay, Toyapakeh and Gamat Bay.
An Indonesian buffet-style lunch will fuel you up before embarking on a journey through the mangroves. And whether you want to go by kayak, stand-up paddle board or gondola, well…the choice is all yours how to enjoy this Nusa Penida day tour.
Keep in Mind Before You Go
For every tour, the safety of the travelers is of utmost priority. As such, professionals will review the sea’s conditions prior to each journey and adjust the itinerary accordingly. Whatever the case, make sure you come equipped with an attitude that’s conducive to ultimate exploration—you’re surely going to want it on these Nusa Penida tours.
