The island of Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia, has a spectacular coastline, and the possibility of swimming with manta rays makes it increasingly popular among those traveling around Indonesia. But despite its easy access and tourism potential, it does not nearly receive the amount of tourists that Bali does.

The scenic bays, spectacular coastline, and the hidden beaches are all over the island and are some of the most beautiful you will ever see. Viewpoints are easy to access, but visiting some of the beaches take more effort. Going to the beach can mean descending for up to thirty-four minutes on a steep trail, but it surely is worth the effort. The most popular beach -- or rather the viewpoint -- is Kenlingking Beach, also known a T-Rex beach because the bay’s shape is said to be similar to a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The other major activity to do on Nusa Penida, Indonesia, is snorkeling with manta rays. Apart from manta rays, you can see other tropical fish and coral. Booking a snorkeling excursion on a day with a calm sea increases the chance of seeing manta rays. It is also possibly to get your PADI certification on Nusa Penida.

Nusa Penida is located south of Bali and can be accessed by ferry from Sanur, Bali. Day trips can be booked from Bali, but Nusa Penida is too big to cover in one day. It is better to book a hostel in Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia, and stay for a few days. Most hostels in Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia, are in the north of Nusa Penida. When on the island, you can easily get around by a rental motorbike. Motorbikes can be rented for a small per-day fee. Your Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia hostel may be able to help you with this. If you do not feel comfortable with riding a motorbike, you can also ask for a car and driver.
