WHAT TO EXPECT AT KELINGKING SECRET POINT BEACH
The reason why Kelingking 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 Kelingking Beach is possible but explore at your own risk. There are stairs and railings made from sticks and bamboo that lead down the spine of Kelingking to the beach though don’t rely completely on this and take your time when descending to the beach. My friends and I made it down to the bottom of the cliffs safely and we went swimming in the powerful waves. The ambience of being surrounded in a bowl of enormous cliffs was next level.
Kelingking 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 KELINGKING BEACH NUSA PENIDA
Kelingking Secret Point 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 December through till February.
GETTING AROUND NUSA PENIDA
The best transportation on the island is to rent a scooter for approximately 70,000 IDR ($7) per day to explore all four corners of Nusa Penida island at your own pace or alternatively, you can rent a car with a driver for approximately 500,000 IDR ($50) per day. I rented my scooter on arrival to Nusa Penida island at the Toya Pekah harbour. 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.
Nusa Penida has hundreds of accommodations to chose from so I have narrowed it down to a few of my personal favourite places to stay that caters for luxury travellers to budget backpackers. See the list of accommodations below that I personally recommend:
