Kelingking Beach

How do I get to Kelingking Beach?

The easiest option to get to Kelingking Secret Point Beach is to take a speedboat ride from Sanur Beach to Nusa Penida Island.

There are many islands that you can reach by a boat that takes about an hour.

If you live in Sanur or near a popular tourist area such as Kuta or Legian, it’s a good idea to take a short speed boat transfer instead of a long bus

For instance, a Maruti Express, Angel’s Billabong Fast Cruise, and much more.

It really doesn’t matter which one you buy, as long as the timing works with your budget.

You can buy your tickets online for about 200,000 IDR, and they can be picked up at the pier when your boat leaves. It takes place every day from 7 am:

There are two public ferry pontoons at Padang Bai on the east coast of Bali. The cost is much less than a speed boat, and the reach takes around 2 hours.

A Passenger Ferry Ticket is 31,000 IDR for each way and can be purchased at 10:00am inside the building marked "Loket".

From the harbor, you can rent bicycles for 75,000 IDR per day, but be prepared for rough roads and many potholes.

Although it may be fun, riding a motorcycle and taking a trip at the same time are two very different things. You should always ride your motorcycle with a purpose and without feeling like a "rush".

As you journey to the city center, you'll discover charming villages, rolling hills and vineyards.

You can reach the cliff and beach by walking down a path from the parking area.


Kelingking Beach Viewpoint

One of the best views in the area is from the Kelingking viewpoint.

Standing at the T-rex head looking out over the beach with the 200-meter high drop in front of you is amazing.

If you want to have a glimpse of the view in a natural environment, you should visit Kelingking on a day tour from Nusa Lembongan or Bali.

Use this advice to help you get the best photos from your trip. If you follow the trail, you'll encounter less tourists, making it easier to get clear photos.

You'll be able to walk all the way to the right from the viewpoint, if you follow the instructions in this map.

The Nusa Penida day tours usually start at 9 AM, so you'll have to get going if you want to beat the crowds.

On a 3-day Nusa Penida trip, you'll have the chance to enjoy the sun setting on the beach at Kelingking.

In 2018, the new roads have been built directly to Kelingking Viewpoint.

It's easily accessible by car or motorbike.


Can I swim at Kelingking Beach?

Your journey down will be rewarded at the bottom with a beautiful beach.

Going swimming is not very safe due to the strong currents.

Walking the stairs as far as halfway is a good place to start when it comes to exercising.

If you have time, head over to Diamond Beach. On Nusa Penida it's a bit more difficult, but still possible

Make sure you are well hydrated, wearing comfortable shoes, and have your sunscreen applied before you leave the house.

It is very important that you do not go to the beach when the sun is setting.  The path back to the top is harder with less light.


Enjoy the Sunset at Kelingking Beach

Take a hike down the stairs to the beach or go up the cliffs instead.

The path leads to a cliff edge and there are no handrails so be very careful.

I’ve been to many beaches and have experienced epic views of the ocean and the mountains.

Kelingking beach is a nice place for a sunset and it involves no hiking for those of you who are looking for a more casual option.

This is definitely one of the best sunsets on the island of Nusa Penida and is a unique angle of Kelingking Secret Point

Kelingking Beach Sunset: This is a great little tip for enjoying Kelingking Secret Point Beach.

The stairs down to the beach are too steep for a wheelchair.

Go to the right instead. A cliff in this area is an extremely dangerous thing and should be avoided at all costs. 

The scenery is spectacular and the hike is much easier than some of the other hikes in the area. 

If you want the best of both worlds, the Ocean and Skyline, here is the perfect location for you!

You should go to Kelingking Secret Point Beach by an easy hike. It's an interesting view and the beach itself is a little different from usual.
