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 TO FIND RUMAH POHON NUSA PENIDA

Rumah Pohon Tree House can be found on the far eastern tip of Nusa Penida island. From the main harbor of Toya Pakeh, it is approximately a one hour drive to reach the Nusa Penida Tree House.

You will arrive at a car park on top of the cliffs where you can your scooter and make your way down to Rumah Pohon Tree House.

At the jump-off point, you will also find a small ticket office where you will have to pay 5,000 IDR for the entrance ticket to Rumah Pohon Tree House.

You can actually book a night’s stay at the Rumah Pohon Tree House which would be a pretty awesome experience and to wake up to that view!

WHAT TO EXPECT AT RUMAH POHON TREE HOUSE

Rumah Pohon Tree House overlooks one of the most gorgeous bays known as Thousand Island Nusa Penida (Pulau Seribu).

When I first saw the Rumah Pohon Tree House on Instagram I had to go see it for myself, as have thousands of other travelers before me. This entire coastline has so much to offer and exploring it first hand was even better than seeing it in the pictures.

My friends and I started our adventure at Atuh Beach where we watched the sunrise before driving around to check out the Rumah Pohon Tree House.

The hike down the ridge takes no more than five or ten minutes to the first viewpoint that overlooks the bay known as Thousand Islands (Pulau Seribu). I don’t know why they named it Thousand Islands when I could only see five or six islands.

Regardless of the misleading name, this is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever laid my eyes on.

RUMAH POHON TREE HOUSE – CONTINUED

Once you are satisfied with marveling at Thousand Island viewpoint, continue the adventure further down the ridge and you will see the Rumah Pohon Tree House on your left-hand side.

If you want to get that perfect Instagram photo of the Nusa Penida Tree House you can stand on the hill on the right-hand side of the track to capture the best angle.

Depending on what time of day you visit the Tree House Nusa Penida, there may or may not be a line of people waiting to get a photo.

My friends and I visited Rumah Pohon Tree House at around 11 am when it was scorching hot and probably the reason why we didn’t see many other people down on the cliffs.

The most popular time to visit the Nusa Penida Tree House is around sunrise and sunset, so you can expect more people around these times.

GETTING AROUND NUSA PENIDA ISLAND

Nusa Penida is quite a large island and it can take up to one hour to get from one side of the island to the other during your Nusa Penida tour. The best means of transport on the island is on a scooter.

When you arrive at Toya Pakeh harbor in Nusa Penida there are a number of scooter rental shops on the beachfront that will be able to sort you out with some wheels.

I paid 70,000 IDR per day for a scooter rental which came with a full tank of gas so you can expect to pay something around that price.

Be sure to get a helmet as an extra precaution for riding on the roads in Nusa Penida as they are not very well maintained.

    Thanks for your post! This is really awesome and helpful. BTW, are you allowed to climb up to that treehouse and take shots without reserving that treehouse?
