Nusa Penida is an underdeveloped island in Bali that rose to fame after Instagram noticed the alluring pictures and took it on its shoulders to promote its beauty. It is important that you spend at least a day of your Bali Holiday Package in Nusa Penida to unleash the full potential of your trip. Before you begin your actual journey, let’s take you on a virtual one where you’ll get to know this picturesque island even better.

History Of Nusa Penida

In the Balinese language, Nusa means ‘island’ and Penida means ‘priests’. It got its name from the local pundits who declared this island to be inhabited by dark spirits. It’s ironical how a place this enchanting has negative connotations associated with it.

With temples where dark spirits are still worshipped, Balinese people believe that to maintain the universal balance; it is important that both the good and the bad walk hand in hand.

Nusa Penida Tours

While customizing your Bali Tour Package, the travel agent will give you a list of Nusa Penida day tours. Among the myriad choices, we recommend you to go ahead with either of the two listed below- 

West Nusa Penida Tour

This tour encompasses the true essence of this solitary island, including famous tourist locations like Kelingking Beach, Broken Beach, Angel’s Billabong, and Crystal Bay. Snorkelling can be added if you want to taste a world of melting hues in the form of fishes and coral reefs.

East Nusa Penida Tour

Reaching Nusa Penida 

A Speedboat from Sanur Harbour is the best way through which one can reach this charming island. You can either get the tickets included in your Bali Holiday Package or book them from the Sanur harbour itself. There is absolutely no difference in the prices. However, you’d have to reach at least half-an-hour before the speedboat’s departure to grab the tickets.  

Cost – For foreigners, it costs Rp 300,000 (INR 1500) for a roundtrip. For Indonesians, it is Rp 200,000 (INR 1000).  

You can also get a speedboat from Tanjong Benoa as well. It is closer to Nusa Dua and it cheaper that Sanur speedboats. However, it has limitations of its own. There’s only one speedboat that leaves to Nusa Penida and that too on alternate days.
