If you have some more time to spend on this gorgeous island, other places of interest include the Crystal Bay and Atuh Beach.
Manta Point off the shores of Nusa Penida is a popular dive site to catch the occasional glimpse of Manta Ray, Mola Mola or Sunfish.Where to stay
There are plenty of budget and luxury accommodations available, we chose Namaste Bungalows near Crystal Bay. A night's stay there would cost around INR3000. The island is dotted with several Warungs( restaurants) serving the local cuisine. Those opting for something different, eating in would be a good idea.Other Essential Information
