WHERE IS BROKEN BEACH?
Broken Beach is located on the far most western tip of Nusa Penida Island.
From the main town of Toya Pakeh, it’s approximately a 45-minute drive.
HOW TO GET HERE?
The best way to get to Broken Beach Bali is by scooter.
The roads on Nusa Penida Island are not very well maintained so please be aware of this and take it slow on the loose gravel roads. Be sure to get a helmet as an extra precaution.
There are a number of scooter rental shops dotted along the beachfront at Toya Pakeh harbor that will be able to sort you out with some wheels when you arrive on the island.
Alternatively, most accommodations will help you to organize a scooter rental for the time you plan to spend on Nusa Penida Island.
You can expect to pay around 70,000 IDR per day for a Nusa Penida scooter rental with a full tank of gas.

BEST TIME TO VISIT BROKEN BEACH

If you want to enjoy this awesome location to yourself and to avoid the crowds, I recommend visiting early morning for sunrise which is between 6:30 am and 7:00 am.
Alternatively, you can visit this location at sunset and enjoy the golden hour as the sun sets over the horizon.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT BROKEN BEACH NUSA PENIDA
Although you can’t go swimming at this particular beach, the location is such an unreal setting in itself.
Featuring a large rock archway, you can marvel at the ocean as it flows in and out of a natural bowl surrounded by towering cliffs
Take the panoramic walk all the way around the edge of Broken Beach Bali and discover several different viewpoints, each offering incredible views of this unique sinkhole in the cliff.
Once you’ve completed the panoramic walk, perch up at one of the cliff-side cafes for a plate of nasi goreng, a cup of coffee, or a refreshing coconut.
It’s by far the best seat in the house that overlooks the beautiful scenes at this magnificent attraction.
