RUMAH POHON TREE HOUSE IN NUSA PENIDA

RUMAH POHON TREE HOUSE IN NUSA PENIDA

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!

These unique beach shacks overlook 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 travellers before me. This entire coastline has so much to offer and exploring it first hand was even better than seeing it in the pictures.

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

You will arrive at a car park on top of the cliffs, park here and make your way down the track towards the beach. You will come across a small wooden 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 nights 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 NUSA PENIDA

My friends and I started our adventure at Atuh Beach where we watched the sunrise before driving around to 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.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT RUMAH POHON – CONTINUED…

Once you are satisfied with marvelling 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 Nusa Penida 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!

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.

When you arrive at Toya Pakeh harbour 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. This was the lowest price I could haggle for – the locals wouldn’t drop their price any lower.

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?
