If you haven’t seen the Ruma Pohon Tree House Nusa Penida on social media I would be amazed. This incredible cliffside treehouse has become very popular thanks to Instagram and it’s one of the best places to visit in Nusa Penida!
Here is my complete guide to Rumah Pohon Tree House including where to find it 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 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.

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 11am 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.

If you want to grab lunch and a cold drink after visiting the Nusa Penida Tree House, there are a few small warungs perched at the top of the cliffs next to the carpark.
I had a local mi-goreng dish and a can of coke for around 30,000 IDR. Cheap as chips!
