Discover Peguyangan Waterfall In Nusa Penida!

On the southwest coast of Nusa Penida, the ultimate adventure awaits at Peguyangan Waterfall and the Instafamous Blue Stairs.

Peguyangan Waterfall is off the beaten path and it takes a little longer to get to, though it is an experience not to be missed when exploring Nusa Penida Island.

I have put together this complete guide of Peguyangan Waterfall 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 IS PEGUYANGAN WATERFALL & HOW TO GET THERE

Peguyangan Waterfall sits at the base of towering cliffs along the southwest coastline in Nusa Penida.

From the main harbor of Toya Pakeh, it’s approximately a 1-hour drive to reach Peguyangan Waterfall.

The best way to get to Peguyangan Waterfall is to rent a scooter for approximately 70,000 IDR per day and make your way over to the west coast of Nusa Penida Island.

The roads on Nusa Penida are eroded and uneven in some areas so please be aware of this and take it slow on the loose gravel roads.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT PEGUYANGAN WATERFALL

You’ll arrive at a parking lot at the top of the cliffs at Peguyanngan Waterfall and will have to pay a small parking fee of 5,000 IDR.

A sarong is also required to be worn as there is a sacred temple at the bottom of the cliffs right next to Peguyangan Waterfall. If you don’t have a towel or sarong to wear, they can be rented from the parking attendant for an additional 10,000 IDR.

There is a small warung at the top if you want to grab something to eat and drink before you head down the stairs. For 10,000 IDR I had a sizeable plate of nasi goreng to fuel me for the Peguyangan Waterfall adventure.

There are 750 blue stairs that are impressively constructed into the side of the cliff giving access to Peguyangan Waterfall. It’s a good workout hiking down and then back up again that’s for sure!

There are several viewpoints that make for great photo opportunities as you make your way down to Peguyangan Waterfall.

 

NUSA PENIDA TOUR

If you happen to be in Bali and planning to visit Nusa Penida Island, there is one tour that I can highly recommend which covers all the highlights on a full-day trip from Bali, including Peguyangan Waterfall.

The Nusa Penida Tour is the most top-rated tour with great reviews and thousands of bookings.

This tour covers the top attractions on Nusa Penida such as Kelingking Beach, Angels Billabong, Broken Beach and more! With a hassle-free pick-up and drop-off from your hotel, return boat transfers from Bali, a hearty lunch and an English-speaking guide. All this for less than $40 USD.

ARRIVING AT PEGUYANGAN WATERFALL

After a 20 minute hike down the blue stairs, you’ll arrive at the sacred water temple that has 4 waterspouts.

When I visited, there were some locals showering under the spouts in their underwear with not a worry in the world.

I waited my turn to have an invigorating shower under each of the waterspouts and then continued along the cliff to the Peguyangan Waterfall.

The waterfall itself is not your common 50-meter meter waterfall, like those you will find in Bali, but rather a waterspout between a crack in a rock where crystal clear water flows out into tiered rock pools and over the cliff edge into the ocean.

The rock pools are shaded under a natural half-cave which is very unique and like nothing I have seen before.

PEGUYANGAN WATERFALL – CONTINUED

After swimming in the rock pools and showering under Peguyangan Waterfall, a small mass of locals started to gather around the sacred water temple.

Offerings were laid out in front of the temple followed by lit incense sticks giving off a smoky haze in the air. We watched in silence as they began to pray around the altar.

It’s small details like these that make the experiences even more memorable. Indonesia is good for that!
