Broken Beach in Nusa Penida is one of many awesome locations on the island and it is not to be missed! The natural bridge stretches over turquoise waters that flow in and out of the natural archway, hence the name Broken Beach.

I have put together this complete guide of Broken Beach 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 TO FIND BROKEN BEACH

Broken Beach is located on the far most western tip of Nusa Penida’s rocky coastline.

From the main harbor of Toya Pakeh it is approximately a 1-hour drive.

Also, right around the corner from Broken Beach, you can find Angel’s Billabong a natural infinity pool on the edge of the cliffs. You can combine these two locations on the same trip.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT BROKEN BEACH NUSA PENIDA

Although you can’t go swimming at Broken Beach, it is such an unreal setting in itself.

The ocean water flows into a natural bowl that is surrounded by towering cliffs. You can take a panoramic walk all the way around Broken Beach Bali to several different viewpoints offering incredible views of this hole in the cliff.

Perched on the cliffs at Broken Beach you can also find small warungs for a nasi goreng, morning coffee or a refreshing coconut!

BEST TIME TO VISIT BROKEN BEACH

Broken Beach Nusa Penida has become a very popular spot for tourists and locals, so if you want to have this awesome location to yourself and avoid the crowds, I recommend visiting early morning for sunrise which is between 6:30am and 7:00am.

Wet season on the Nusa Islands starts in December and ends in February each year. Exploring these islands outside of these months is better recommended.
