This video is about my visit to Nusa Penida, one of the most exciting and scenic islands around Bali. I visited two beaches in Nusa Penida – Kelingking & Toya Pakeh. They are indeed beautiful and exotic. For those looking for water sports like diving or snorkelling in Bali, I recommend a day trip to Nusa Penida Island. In this video, I have shared information about
- How to reach Nusa Penida
- Fast boat fare from Bali to Nusa Penida
- Ferry from Sanur beach to Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan
- Point of attractions in Nusa Penida
- Nasi Goreng for Vegetarians

How to reach Nusa Penida island
It took us around 30 minutes from Sanur beach to Nusa Penida island in a speedboat. The ferry price is about 4,00,000 IDR which equals to 1,900 Indian Rupees approximately. After that, we went to Kelingking beach which was pronounced as Klingking beach by our guide and people from Indonesia Tourism promotion authorities.
- Nusa Penida Ferry price – 400,000 IDR (To & Fro)

After reaching a particular point near the Kelingking beach, the scenery became surreal. The sea water was so clear, so blue… It was out of this world. There is a track to reach the beach, but it is quite dangerous. There is a board which warns tourist to go on that path on their risk. I went half way and came back.
Vegetarian Nasi Goreng
Now before we could start water activities in Nusa Penida island, It was already lunchtime. I had vegetarian Nasi Goreng at a local restaurant on the way. Nasi Goreng is Indonesian fried rice and quite a popular dish. Usually, it is served with meat, but I ordered a Vegetarian one. It cost 30,000 Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) which equals 143 Indian Rupees.
- Vegetarian Nasi Goreng price = 30,000 IDR
Snorkelling at Nusa Penida
After lunch, I reached Toya Pakah beach, another famous beach on Nusa Penida. I think it is more famous for activities like Snorkelling. We went on a Snorkelling trip, again on a speedboat. It hardly took 10-15 minutes to reach Gamat Bay, the place known for Snorkelling and other water activities. Our snorkelling instructor informed that a snorkelling trip from the Toya Pakah beach costs about 250,000 IDR for one person. The trip duration is 1 hour which includes travelling time from Toya Pakeh to Gamat bay. Overall the actual snorkelling activity lasts for 30 minutes which is really fun.
- Snorkelling trip cost = 250,000 IDR / person
