Despite the name, there isn’t an actual beach here. Surprisingly enough, you will witness one gorgeous cove with an archway opening at the end which lets the turquoise color waters in.
It turns out that the waves from the Ocean has been causing erosion to the cliff for centuries and create the archway that influence the name Broken Beach as the cove is not fully enclosed.
I know the feeling, I bet you would love to swim around the water or even attempt to cliff jump in Broken Beach.
Fair enough but, I really against the idea as there is no access climbing up. You will need to swim around to the nearest climb access at Angel’s Billabong which is actually just 100 meters away.
And here’s the scary part:
The current is very strong. If you are not a strong swimmer,odds are that you could potentially get dragged into the Ocean
Let me say this straight, if you could only visit a few spots in Nusa Penida, you should at least come for the awesome natural pool of Angel’s Billabong.
It’s even a no-brainer if you are already in Broken Beach. Angel’s Billabong is only a 500 meter walk away from Broken Beach.
Angel’s Billabong is most popular for its crystal clear water tide pool where you can swim and pose for an extraordinary photo.
A word of caution: you should never swim to the edge of the pool. There has been accidents where people died after being pulled into the ocean by a sudden high waves crashing over the pool.
Kelingking Cliff & Beach
Next is my all time favourite spot: Kelingking Beach. As I mentioned earlier, this is where I took my pre-wedding photos and they are perfect!
So what’s it all about?
There are actually two different way you can experience Kelingking.
First, you could spend hours climbing down the stairs to Kelingking beach. You’ll enjoy an almost private white sand beach that will leave you speechless. Problem is, it’s not for everyone. You should only attempt going down to the beach only if you are physically fit as this will test your endurance at an extreme level.
The next alternative is enjoying the view and even witness the sun setting behind the T-Rex shaped cliff.
Here’s a little secret for you, there is a spot where you could literally watch the sunset while (if you are lucky) watching the Manta Rays gliding graciously over the Ocean.
Raja Lima (Thousand Island Viewpoints)
Raja Lima is one of the most rarely visited spot in Nusa Penida despite of its spectacular landscape.
So, does it really made up of a thousand island?
Of course not, but it must has been an exaggeration of some travelers who are amazed by the several formation of sharp rocky islands that protruded from the water.
Here’s a little secret: The best viewpoint in Thousand Island Viewpoint is the Nusa Penida Tree House. It’s actually an accommodation, but you can take free instagrammable photo on its staircase. The morning sunrise moment is best relished while waking up at the tree house.
While you are in Thousand Island Viewpoint, might as well visit the most famous spot in Nusa Penida East, Atuh Beach.
