Situated about an hour from Ped village, the drive will take you through Sampalan, various other villages along the ocean road until you reach a peninsula high on a cliff top, the view is breathtaking.
This area is a photograph paradise, with stunning sunrise vistas. A 2o minute walk down the steps will land you on the white sands of Atuh Beach with crystal clear blue waters to dip your toes in. Do not be surprised if you are the only ones there. The effort put into getting there is well worth it.
Crystal Bay is famous amongst photographers, divers and snorkellers. Facing west it has a small temple on an island just off shore, great for sunset silhoutte photos. If you have an underwater camera, you will be rewarded with photos of rich coloured corals and striking tropical fishes.
For a panoramic photo of the entire bay, try climbing the steps to the south or extend your walk and continue on to the next secluded beach at Padan Bay.Alternatively you can relax on the beach, have a meal at the local warung and view Ceningan and Lembongan islands in the distance.
A wonderful place to swim and cool off, Angel’s Billabong is your very own natural infinity pool on Nusa Penida. You can float and relax while taking in the beauty of the sea that lies just beyond the edge of the pool. It is told that the name of Angel’s Billabong reflects the view that a place this beautiful must be the bathing pool of the angels themselves.
The popularity of Angel’s Billabong began to skyrocket in June 2015, with the help of social media – so see it quickly, before too many people discover this secret! Angel’s Billabong is located just to the west side of Broken Beach, so they are ideal to combine in one trip. The best time to visit the Billabong is between 9 and 11 am – at that time, the waves of the ocean beyond are calm and still, imbibing the experience of floating in serenity as one of true heaven.
