Nusa Penida became a very special place for us due to our engagement on the island, Campbell made an underwater proposal during a dive. Before going there we didn’t have many expectations, the main reason we went to Nusa Penida was to see famous mola molas and mantas. Need to say that the island has much to offer except for the world class diving and snorkeling we really enjoyed our time there and could easily stay longer. Hope our Nusa Penida backpacking guide will inspire you to visit and explore the island.
Things to do on the island. Nusa Penida backpacking guide
For us diving is the main activity in Indonesia and the main reason we came back here every time. The main diving attractions on Nusa Penida are mantas and mola-molas (sun fish) if you are lucky.
Exploring the island by motorbike
There is a lot to explore, impressive cliffs, pristine beaches, bat caves, temples, waterfalls etc. We drove around one day and had time to visit just a couple of places in one area so if you have more time you’ll be able to explore and discover more.
Places of interest on Nusa Penida
Have in mind the road conditions on the island once you are out of the main road that goes around the island your drive speed will reduce to 15 km per hour, due to numerous holes, steep ups and downs and dirt road sometimes. Though the island isn’t big don’t expect to be able to visit many places in one day.
