BANAH CLIFF VIEWPOINT IN NUSA PENIDA – ADVENTURE GUIDE

banah cliff nusa penida, banah cliff point, banah, nusa penida, banah cliff point nusa penida, nusa penida bai

Banah Cliff Nusa Penida is one of the best viewpoints along the southwest coastline of Nusa Penida Island! Banah Cliff is not quite as popular as Kelingking Beach, though it is equally as impressive in my opinion!

There is not just one but two incredible viewpoints at Banah Cliff Nusa Penida and surprisingly, we did not have to pay for parking or any entrance fees at this location which was great. It’s places like these that I love to discover before they get too popular.

Here is a complete guide of Banah Cliff Nusa Penida including how to get there and what to expect!

 

Have you got travel insurance for Bali? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. 

 

WHERE IS BANAH CLIFF NUSA PENIDA & HOW TO GET THERE

The Banah Cliff viewpoints are located on the southwest coast of Nusa Penida Island.

From the main harbor of Toya Pakeh, it is approximately a 45-minute drive to reach Banah Cliff Nusa Penida. You can rent a scooter at the harbor for 70,000 Rupiah per day.

Alternatively, most accommodations will help you to organise a scooter rental during your time spent on Nusa Penida Island.

THE VIEWPOINTS AT BANAH CLIFF NUSA PENIDA

You will know you are in the right spot when you see this sign shown above. To the right is the panoramic view and sunset point and to the left is the Banah Cliff Nusa Penida.

The panoramic viewpoint at Banah Cliff Nusa Penida faces west and offers extreme views of surrounding cliffs, perched high above the ocean. On a clear day, you can actually see the tail of the T-Rex at Kelingking Beach.

Be very careful when taking photos at Banah Cliff Nusa Penida here as there is no safety barrier to protect you from falling hundreds of feet to the ground. Know your limits.

The other viewpoint at Banah Cliff Nusa Penida faces east and offers an awesome viewpoint of an arched rock island just off of the coastline. Again, please watch your step along these rocky cliffs.

BEST TIME TO VISIT BANAH CLIFF NUSA PENIDA

The best time to visit the Banah Cliffs is anywhere between 9 am and sunset for the best lighting and when it’s not too hot under the midday sun.

I would have loved to experience a sunset at Banah Cliff, though due to limited time we had on Nusa Penida we decided to head to Kelingking Beach instead.
