Day 7- Day 11: Southeast Islands: All about Palm Trees and 80 degrees
Turquoise blue waters, white sand, limestones, T-rex bay, towering cliffs, hidden beaches…yes, you guessed it right I’m talking about the Nusa Islands!! (Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan).
There is so much see in the 3 islands and each place will leave you awestruck with its scenic beauty. Since most places are far from each other within the islands, all 3 islands can only be covered if you’re staying for at least 5 days at either of the islands. If you’re short on time, it’s best to do a 3 day Nusa Penida Tour.
This is largest of the 3 islands but also the least developed. It’s not as commercialised as Nusa Lembongan hence it’s not very crowded. The island can be explored in two parts i.e., East and West:
East Penida One Day Tour: The east coast of the island is untouched and the most picturesque. You will visit the following places during the tour:
Thousand Islands(Pulau Seribu) and Rumah Pohon Treehouse: The Instagram famous Treehouse overlooks the Diamond Beach and has a panoramic view.
Atuh Beach and Diamond Beach: Incredible rock formations that stretch over crystal clear turquoise waters. Both the beaches are very close to each other and offer breath-taking views from the top. To reach the Diamond beach, one needs to go down the stairs cut into the cliffside so take your time while descending and be alert. Both Atuh and Diamond beach will leave with in awe with their raw beauty.
Teletubbies Hill: The hills are formed from limestone above which there is thin ground overgrown with green grass which looks exactly like the hills in the Teletubbies show.
