HOW TO GET TO DIAMOND BEACH BALI

The best way of getting around Nusa Penida Island is to rent a scooter for approximately 70,000 IDR per day and you can then make your way over to Diamond Beach Nusa Penida.

You can rent a scooter on arrival to Nusa Penida Island at the Toya Pakeh harbor or alternatively, most accommodations on the island generally offer scooter or car rentals.

The drive from Toya Pakeh to Nusa Penida Diamond Beach is approximately a one-hour journey.

ARRIVING AT DIAMOND BEACH NUSA PENIDA

My friends and I left our accommodation, La Roja Bungalows, at 5 am to get to Diamond Beach Nusa Penida for sunrise and to beat the crowds.

If you also want to experience Diamond Beach Bali without other tourists around, I suggest you head there as early as possible.

When you arrive at the parking lot, you will have to pay a small entrance fee of 10,000 IDR to the parking lot attendant sitting in his booth before making your way down the stairs to Diamond Beach Nusa Penida.

When we arrived, the sun was just starting to rise over the horizon and we hiked down to Diamond Beach Bali via the stairs cut into the cliffside to where we had the entire beach to ourselves.

The way down to Diamond Beach Bali only takes around ten minutes before emerging on the sandy shoreline. The stairs are quite narrow so be careful and take your time on your descent.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT DIAMOND BEACH NUSA PENIDA

I must admit, it’s a precarious walk down the rocky staircase on the side of the cliffs, but totally worth it as soon as you dip your toes into the soft sand at Nusa Penida Diamond Beach.

There are two beach areas at Diamond Beach Bali. One has vivid green mossy rocks and tidal rock pools but unfortunately quite of bit of trash was washed up on the sand here.

The other area of Diamond Beach Nusa Penida features a long stretch of glistening white sand, coconut palm trees, small caves and a much more suitable spot for swimming.

A small warung resides down on Diamond Beach Bali Nusa Penida where you can buy cold refreshments and local dishes such as mie goreng and nasi goreng for as little as $3.

You can also have a turn on the Diamond Beach Nusa Penida swing which is strung up between two coconut palms down by the beach.

I was in complete awe at the sheer raw beauty that Diamond Beach Bali has to offer and to have the entire beach to ourselves took the experience to the next level!

THINGS TO DO AT DIAMOND BEACH NUSA PENIDA

There are a few small caves to explore at the foot of the cliffs at Diamond Beach Bali. I crawled inside one of the caves to get a quick photo and enjoy a different perspective of the beach.

My friend Camilla perused the shoreline at Diamond Beach Bali and found two handfuls of beautiful seashells. Some were as large as my palm and in perfect condition. Collecting seashells is not my thing, but for some, it’s a hobby and Diamond Beach Nusa Penida is the perfect spot for shell collectors.

Diamond Beach Nusa Penida is a great spot for a dip to cool off after the sweaty hike down the stairs.

My friends and I went for a swim in the turquoise waters at Diamond Beach Bali and honestly did not want to get out of the water because it was so fresh and it felt very cleansing on the skin.

Eventually, I had to get out of the hot sun so I decided to sit in the shade of the cave and fly my drone to capture the girls enjoying their salty swim at Diamond Beach Nusa Penida.

    Hello! Me and my friends are set to go to Bali next week and they assigned me to plan the itinerary. Came across your blog while researching and wew, this makes me want to go to Diamond Beach! I already read a couple of blogs about this undiscovered gem in Nusa Penida but your blog is by far the most detailed and made me conclude that we must not leave Bali without visiting this magnifique. Our accomodation is already booked in Kuta only and we plan to do a 1-day tour in Nusa Penida. Would you know if it’s possible for us to visit the 3 beaches — Kelingking, Diamond Beach, and Angel’s Billabong/Broken Beach in a day? Or if not, just Kelingking and Diamond Beach? I know Kelingking is in the West and Diamond is in the East, but will there be drivers or tours around Nusa Penida that can accomodate this not-so-usual itinerary? Since driving is not an option for us. 🙁

    Hope you can help me out on this one before we get there next week! 🙂 2 thumbs up on your blog!

      Hello, my advice to you would be to stay on Nusa Penida Island for one night to enjoy those 4 beaches you have mentioned. As soon as you arrive to the port you will be able to find a local driver for the day just ask around. It is possible to visit all those beaches but it will be a very rushed day so up to you. Visit diamond beach as soon as you arrive and then head to the west and visit kelingking, broken and angels billabong. 🙂
