On the island of Nusa Penida, coastal erosion has formed the epic sea arch and a small secluded beach known as Broken Beach. There is no mistaking the power and artistry of these magnificent works.
When to Visit Broken Beach
If you’re hoping for some peace and quiet, space to take photos without others ruining your snaps, I would highly recommend taking a visit to Broken Beach early in the morning. Smart travelers and backpackers start to flock by the dozens around the edge of the cliff from around 8:30 am. It gets worse as the day goes on, with tour buses flooding the surroundings from around 10:00.
The Nusa Islands has endured enormous publicity over the last few years, due to social media apps such as Instagram and so on, so it’s hard to admire their attractions while experiencing some solitude.
Getting to Broken Beach
Broken Beach is located on the West Coast of Nusa Penida. It is quite far away from anything else as it’s quite a big island, so it will require you to get there either by scooter or by a tour. The roads have improved a lot due to the high influx of tourists that the Nusa islands attract, but expect a little traffic. If you’re not an experienced scooter driver, it will be an interesting journey for you, I warn you now!
Booking a tour to Broken Beach using Toursbylocals:
Tour option from Nusa Penida: Nusa Penida Private Tour
Tour option from Bali: Nusa Penida Tour from Bali
There are cheaper tours you can do with tour companies all around Bali and the Nusa islands, but I highly recommend using ToursbyLocals. Read about why I suggest using a local guide
Parking does cost at Broken beach, which sets you back only 5,000 Rupiah. While you’re parked there you can head over to Angel’s Billabong, which is the spectacular natural pool that’s right around the corner.
