KELINGKING SECRET POINT BEACH IN NUSA PENIDA, BALI

KELINGKING SECRET POINT BEACH IN NUSA PENIDA, BALI

Kelingking Secret Point Beach is up there with one of the most amazing places I have ever been. Kelingking Beach on Nusa Penida island has become the biggest tourist attraction on the island thanks to Instagram and for a good reason, I mean just look at this view!

Nusa Penida is an adventure wonderland! The best time to visit Nusa Penida is between March and November, avoiding the rain season which is December through till February.

GETTING AROUND NUSA PENIDA

The best transportation on the island is to rent a scooter for approximately 70,000 Rupiah per day to explore all four corners of the island at your own pace or alternatively, you can rent a car with a driver for approximately 500,00 Rupiah per day. I rented my scooter on arrival to Nusa Penida island at the Toya Pekah harbour. The roads on Nusa Penida are very rocky and eroded in areas so beware of this and take it slow on the loose gravel roads.

WHERE IS KELINGKING SECRET POINT BEACH

Kelingking Beach is located on the west coast of Nusa Penida island. I used the Cemara Homestay as a base for 3 nights in the north of the island and the journey time to Kelingking Secret Point Beach was approximately a 45 minute drive from here. When you arrive there is a small fee of 5,000 Rupiah for parking.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT KELINGKING SECRET POINT BEACH

The reason why Kelingking Beach is such a popular location is because the cliffs form the shape of a T-Rex. The head of the T-Rex can be seen on the left of the bay and the body and tail wraps around to the right.

Access to the beach is possible but explore at your own risk. There are stairs and railings made from sticks and bamboo that lead down the spine of Kelingking to the beach though don’t rely completely on this as they are not maintained that well. My friends and I made it down to the bottom of the cliffs safely and we went swimming on the deserted beach. The ambience of being surrounded in a bowl of enormous cliffs was next level.

Kelingking Beach has multiple viewpoints around the edge of the cliffs offering spectacular views up and down the coastline of Nusa Penida.

BEST TIME TO VISIT KELINGKING BEACH NUSA PENIDA

Kelingking Secret Point Beach can be visited at anytime of the day. I was there at around 3pm and stayed until after sunset. If you want to grab something to eat and drink there are small restaurants at the top of the cliffs with some pretty amazing views.
