It was our 2nd day and I wanted to make the most of it by covering NUSA PENIDA(One has to go till Sanur and then take a speedboat to reach nusa penida)
1) One major mistake was that I booked a taxi til Sanur through my cottage hotel without even checking what should have been the nominal charges(taxi driver charged me a lot IDR 400000)
One should always have GRAB Taxi app in mobile so that you can check the actual fare and then accordingly bargain with private taxi drivers.
1) Yes the taxi driver dropped me at Sanur but almost 1km before the actual place where you get cheap tickets. He dropped us at those private tourist shops/office on road. Even after I bargained with him I was made a fool as I paid him extra money for tickets(which I got to know once i reached the sanur beach).
1)Always book online tickets for ferry in advance as they are cheaper.
2) If you prefer booking by going at Sanur then please ask your driver to drop you directly at Sanur Beach only because there are multiple counters over the sea shore to buy tickets.
3) Nusa Penida to Sanur-one way-IDR 200000
Two hundred thousand Rupiah as they call it!
1)We took 10:30 am ferry because of which we didnt have much time to explore nusa penida as the last return ferry is at 5pm
10:30-11:30 Reached Nusa penida
12:00-1:30 Reached by Scootie to Angel billabong
1:30-3:00 Lunch and Pictures
3:00-4:30 Returned back to ferry harbour
2)I was there at Angel billabong and Broken beach but couldnt go and take pictures as time was so less.
One should always take the first ferry at 8am to have ample amount of time to explore the famous Instagram landmarks!
Maybe the better option is to book your stay at the island and then explore.
BIGGEST MISTAKE OF THE TRIP-
1)Never ever rent a bike/scootie if you love your life!
The roads are really bad at places and are almost at 45degree angle,going up and down,narrow,sharp turns. I even saw 2 people who skidded on these roads when I was driving through.
2)I rented a Scooty for full day including petrol in IDR 200000(don't know was high or less!)
3)Only thing I know is my wife wanted to kill me for this decision of driving!!
Hire a Taxi with a driver as they are trained adapted and experienced to drive on such roads(IDR 500000)
