Bali is always a great option for staycations. With numerous beaches to choose from, Bali makes a perfect destination for Instagram worthy holidays. The treehouses of Nusa Penida, a tropical paradise located on the south eastern coast of Bali, are one of the few cheap stays in Bali that has gained popularity on social media. A luxurious escape in the lap of nature is just what you need on the next vacation and your feed.
Nusa PenidaMy favourite of the three. Nusa Penida is all about those blues and greens. It's much larger than Lembongan and Ceningan, so you'll need a scooter to get around. It's also far less commercial than the other two, which means the roads are not at their absolute best in all places. Too often did we see travellers falling off their scooters, and a whole lot of folks ending up with bandages.Head down to the Yellow Bridge; that's the port from where you'll be taking a 40-minute ferry to go to Nusa Penida.Roundtrip ticket: IDR 200000There are two ways to explore Penida - hire a scooter and get around at your own pace, or go with a tour operator. I was still recovering from a scooter accident from earlier, and was planning on taking a tour or a guided bike, but I bumped into a couple of girls from my hostel at the pier. We decided to take two scooters and hung out together for the day, and that was a lot more fun than any tour could've possible ever been!Also, a tour will set you back by IDR 500000, as it involves a driver and a car, so best opt for that if you're in a group of 4 or 5, so costs work out. Hiring two scooters cost us IDR 120000, which worked out to IDR 40000 each. You can hire these (AND a helmet, do not forget a helmet!) once you arrive at Penida, you'll see a row of shops.
Out of eleven days of Bali Trip, we kept one-day for Nusa Penida Island tour. Situated on the south-eastern side of mainland Bali, Nusa Penida is a pretty new destination for tourists.Our driver in Nusa Penida even told that it's been only a year since there are direct boats from Sanur Harbor to Nusa Penida. Previously, it was only accessible via Nusa Lembongan.As we were on tight schedule, we booked the It included the hotel pick-up and drop off, two-way speed boat tickets, bottled water, and lunch. The tour to Nusa Penida from Bali via Klook. per person cost of West Nusa Penida tour from Bali was USD 45.You can easily cover major tourist spots of Nusa Penida in a day. But if you are planning to go for various activities on Nusa Penida Island like scuba diving, etc., then I will recommend you to plan a 2-3 days trip.Bali's Nusa Penida Island has become one of the most Instagrammed locations in recent times. Almost everyone, who goes to Bali, visits Nusa Penida and takes pictures at various beautiful locations of Nusa Penida.Nusa Penida Island is spread over 200 sq. km and is considerably larger than the very famous Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Cengian, which form the Nusa group of islands.Unlike Bali's nightlife, beach clubs, noisy markets, and streets, Nusa Penida is pretty calm and peaceful with a lesser number of people. It doesn't have many hotels and tourist infrastructures, which has left the nature in Nusa Penida untouched and unspoiled. Cleaner beaches and rarefied cultural highlights make this place a true Balinese experience.Reaching Nusa Penida from Bali is quite easy; from Sanur Harbor being the easiest one. There are regular hourly speed boats from Sanur to Nusa Penida starting as early as 7.30 AM to 4.30 PM.A few of many companies that provide ferry services between Bali and Nusa Penida include Idola Express, Angel Billabong Fast, Maruti, Mola Mola, The Angkal, and much more.Fast Boat Ticket Cost From Sanur To Nusa Penida
