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

I have put together this complete guide of Keling King Beach in Nusa Penida including how to get there, the best time to visit 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 KELING KING BEACH

Keling King Beach, also know as Kelingking Secret Point, is located on the west coast of Nusa Penida Island. From the main town Toya Pakeh, it’s approximately a 45-minute drive to reach Keling King Beach.

The best way to get to Keling King Beach is to rent a scooter for approximately 70,000 IDR per day and make your way over to the west coast.

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.

When you arrive at the jump-off point for Keling King Beach you will have to pay a small fee of 5,000 IDR for parking which also includes the entrance fee.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT KELING KING BEACH

The reason why Keling King Beach is such a popular location is that 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 wrap around to the right.

Access to the Keling King Beach is possible but explore at your own risk. There are stairs and railings made out of timber that lead down the spine of Keling King to the beach, though don’t completely rely on this and please take your time when descending down to the shoreline.

My friends and I made it down to the bottom of the cliffs safely and we went swimming in the powerful waves down on Keling King Beach. The ambiance of being surrounded in a bowl of enormous cliffs was the next level.

Keling King 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 KELING KING BEACH

Keling King Beach can be visited at any time 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.

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