    BE CAREFUL OF THE TIDE AT THE BEACH
    Me and my husband went to this view point in Nusa Penida today June 8th, 2023. A few minutes earlier, a couple died when they were dragged by the waves at the beach. I’m writing this to PLEASE ask anyone who visits this spot and decides to hike down to the beach to PLEASE not swim in the ocean. Especially if the locals tell you that the tide is high and it’s dangerous. There’s been A LOT of deaths and injuries in Nusa Penida which a lot of people don’t talk about. Please be careful. This is a beautiful place but you have to respect it and be extremely cautious.

    Very beautiful landscapes!
    I cant' explain how much I loved this place. I went to Nusa Penida island in January, just loved the landscape. Perfect destination for honeymoon couples. I visited 5 beaches there this one was the best. Broken beach is also a good option to visit.

    Great views, a little too crowded
    This is probably, if not the most hyped place in Nusa Penida in particular and Bali in general. Having seen this particular sight multiple times in pics and videos across various platforms we were worried if it will impact our experience. Thankfully it didn't and there is nothing like viewing it yourself up close. We didn't go down to the beach but did enjoy the views from above and it is breathtaking to say the least. We reached around 10:30-11 am when it was too crowded. A must visit nonetheless!

    Time your trip
    A really nice view which makes for some great photos, especially on a nice day. Recommend coming here after 5pm once all the day trippers have gone. Lots of monkeys around too but they don’t seem to cause a problem. NB Parking scooter is 5,000 rupiah.

    Climbing down is a memorable experience!
    A stunning beach and a memorable experience climbing down to it. Yes, it’s tough, wear trainers, don’t carry anything unless it’s on your back and bring water. Harder than I imagined and my legs ached for days, but what an achievement when you reach the bottom! The steps end about a third of the way down, then it’s just rock climbing , so if you find the steps tough then turn back!

    A mandatory stop if u are in Nusa Penida
    We, a family with one 7 year kid spent not more than 40 mins here. The view of the beach is breathtaking. There was a small contention for the photo spots. After that, we took some photos. But, the spots have very weak fences. One has to be very mindful of the same.

    The view is immaculate
    Memorable view. I didn’t walk down the stairs as I already had at diamond beach that day. Not a swimmable beach as sea current is far too strong and will have you swept away in seconds unable to reach back to the beach.

    Beautiful, Breathtaking, Challenging!
    The beach and the view is every bit beautiful as the pictures say. The way to get there is pretty challenging makes the beach the ultimate reward when you get there. Know your physical fitness, wear good shoes, climb slowly and carefully. take a liter of water in your backpack. The water was perfect, it was a little rough. Great photo opportunities. The hike down is 25 mins and the hike up is another 40 mins. The hike up is definitely really difficult and will test your physical fitness.

    top location
    One of the most beautiful places outside Bali. Only about 40 minutes boat ride from Sanur. Nusa Penida should be on every traveller's list. Amazing places to snorkel with Manta Rays and places to visit on land. Kelingking and Broken Beach are the best. Sexy Taxi Tours on Penida and Bob Marley is the best.

    Beautiful beach worth the climb, but be careful and don’t wear flip flops
    We (a group of 8 friends) took a ferry from Serangan pier - it took about 1.5 h to Nusa penida and about 50 mins back. Then we rented scooters nearby and had a really nice drive to Kelingking beach. It was a nice view from the top, but looking down some of friends scared and didn’t want to go down to the beach (as 90 % of people) and one was scared of heights. Me and two friends went down anyway. The path is very very steep which makes it especially hard to walk/climb downhill. You sometimes have to wait for people going up as there is enough space only for one person on the path. You get dirty, dusty and scared for your life. However, when you come down it is totally worth it! The beach is not crowded, there is some nice shadow, you can buy some drinks and refresh in the sea (even though the current is too strong for swimming). Path down took us about 40 mins, but we were up in 20 - it is much easier to go up. If you only have limited time (one day trip) know that with hiking to the beach you will probably only have enough time to see this one beach (we were driving to Crystal bay afterwards but we only stayed there a couple of minutes - the beach is not as beautiful as Kelingking). Also on the way back the roads were crazy busy with cars and it was hard to ride the scooters. We managed to find one empty road so we could safely return to the pier. It was a fun trip overall :) Ps. Don’t wear flip flops or sandals for hiking to the beach! You will have to walk barefoot sooner or later. Bring sneakers.

You’ve all seen the views from the top but not that many people venture down to the beach. But you should do! Okay it looks like a scary climb but take it slowly and it’s actually much easier than it looks. The beach is simply lovely and as most people are scared by the climb it’s not that full. When we visited there were no more than 20 people on the beach and we were proud that we were the only ones in our 50s who had dared to make the climb!
Go early in the morning if you can. There were a lot more people making the trip down when we were climbing back up.

On the southwest coast of the island of Nusa Penida, in the settlement of Bunga Mekar, lies a secret beach called Kelingking Beach. From the summit of the hill with the same name, you can take in one of the most breathtaking vistas across the hills and narrow stretch of white sand. The view is of the deep blue waves of the open Indian Ocean set against a green-covered promontory of limestone. The moniker "T-Rex Bay" comes from this unusual formation, which resembles the head of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The isolated beach is reachable after a strenuous 400-meter cliffside trek.
