Angel’s Billabong is one of Nusa Penida’s most popular attractions. This natural infinity pool is framed by rock cliffs and hangs out over the ocean overlooking Manta Point Beach.
We knew we had to get to Angel’s Billabong Beach as early as possible to beat the crowds, so we left Cemara Homestay at 6am for a one hour scooter ride. The road hugs the coastline and offers spectacular views of Mt Agung in Bali.
WHERE TO FIND ANGEL’S BILLABONG NUSA PENIDA
The Angel’s Billabong Beach can be found on the far most western tip on Nusa Penida’s coastline. Majority of the roads on the island have recently been resurfaced apart from the ones that lead off the main road and down to the beaches. You can expect to find potholes, rocks and ditches as you drive own these sketchy tracks so I would advise to take it as slow as you can.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT ANGEL’S BILLABONG NUSA PENIDA
When you arrive to the carpark on the cliffs you will be asked to pay a parking fee of 5,000 Rupiah. I found a small tree to park the scooter in the shade because the seat can heat up in the sun very quickly. There are sign posts leading the way down the steps to Angel’s Billabong, so it is hard to get lost.
There are a number of viewpoints of the Billabong, my personal favourite was down in the infinity pool itself. The water is clear as crystal and the temperature was nice and warm on a crisp early morning.
The rocks are quite sharp and rugged getting down in to the infinity pool, but once you step in, the surface of the rocks under the water is smooth and easy to walk on.
There is plenty of exploring to do around the cliffs and you may be as lucky as us and spot some manta rays flying around in the ocean below the cliffs. See below for some awesome shots I took of the cliff walk and mantas from above.
Once you’ve explored Angel’s Billabong, continue your adventure to Broken Beach. There are signs leading the way down a dirt trail through the bushes and across the headland to Broken Beach Nusa Penida. You can read my post of this epic location by clicking HERE!
