Bali never ceases its charm and beauty to attract domestic as well as international tourists from all over the world. Hence, so many people are too busy to visit Bali’s famous and well-known spots only, when there are numerous underrated tourists’ spots that are incredibly awesome and totally worth to visit. When it comes to the underrated spots in Bali, Nusa Penida is surely listed there.
Located in the Southeast side of Bali, this small yet exotic island offers an exceptional, natural view as well as a comfortably quiet atmosphere, something that you rarely find in Bali itself. However, here are some tips for you before visiting this island so that your Nusa Penida tour can be more memorable.
Choose the Right Timing
One of the most crucial things to choose is, of course, the timing. You should avoid visiting this place in June since it’s the time when Australian east winds hit up Indonesia, and Nusa Penida of course affected by this. Aside from that, if you visit this place in June, the big waves are quite scary and it could impact your Nusa Penida tour.
Visiting Nusa Penida means you’re going to visit a lot of beaches. Therefore, you have to choose the right outfit that feels comfortable and suitable for you. Loose pants and cotton shirts are probably the best choices. You better prepare other things such as sunglasses, flip flops, hats, and anything that can make you comfortable during your trip.
If you’re planning to visit Nusa Penida, you definitely have to visit other beautiful small islands nearby which are Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Lembongan. Therefore, you have to prepare a waterproof bag as well as raincoat just in case it’s going to be rain later on. You also have to use a speedboat that will take you from Sanur Beach to Nusa Penida and vice versa, hence waterproof bag will be very useful during your Nusa Penida tour.
Stay Healthy and Hydrated
Nusa Penida located in Indonesia, a tropical country that has the sun lights up all day as well as heated up temperatures. You’re also going to trekking a lot upon visiting Nusa Penida’s virgin beaches, especially Kelingking Beach with its 3-hours long steps. Therefore, you have to make sure your body is healthy and hydrated. Don’t hesitate to bring a water bottle everywhere. Unlike Bali beaches with its crowded atmosphere and tons of shops or sellers on the street, Nusa Penida is way more deserted and you won’t find small shops easily.
Choose the Right Accommodation
Accommodation and transportation are definitely something that needs your attention the most since it could affect your whole Nusa Penida tour. Hotel with well-equipped facilities that provides breakfast or with a well-prepared restaurant should definitely be on top of your list. You better book it online beforehand just in case it’s going to be overbooked, or especially if you’re going to visit this place during high season.
Importance of Tour Guide
Nusa Penida is a small, untouchable island. There are a lot of things that you don’t know yet, and a lot of hidden spots that are yet to be explored. Moreover, you will find a lot of uneven stone roads and won’t be able to use GPS either since the signal here is quite bad. Therefore, it would be nice if you’re renting a tour guide beforehand or following a tour program so that you can explore Nusa Penida efficiently and comfortably.
Nusa Penida Well-Structured Itinerary
Nusa Penida is divided into two spots. The first one is the west side with Klingking Secret Point, Broken Beach, Angel’s Billabong, and Crystal Bay. The second is the east side with its Atuh Beach, Pulau Seribu, Rock’s island panorama, and Bukit Teletubbies. Therefore, you have to prepare a well-structured itinerary so that you can visit all of these notable spots.
