Kelingking Beach Secret Point, Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia

July 12, 2019

Hi guys, welcome to my blog! In this post, I'll be sharing about my visit to Kelingking Beach Secret Point in Nusa Penida Island, Bali.

Kelingking Beach is actually the 4th and final stop on the West Nusa Penida Whole Day Trip we book on Klook, and if you're interested in reading my overall review of the trip you can click here to read it.

The journey by car between Broken Beach and Kelingking beach took us about 30 minutes. Similar to how the road was on the way to Angel's Billabong, the roads were super bumpy and shaky hahaha.

Our driver wasn't fazed though and managed to get us to our destination safely.  I would recommend hiring an experienced driver instead of travelling around West Nusa Penida yourself as they would know how to best navigate Nusa Penida, how to drive on such bumpy roads + how to get to your destination.

At around 2.30pm, we arrived at Kelingking Beach! Isn't the view just breathtaking??! It looks like it's straight out of a movie!

There was quite a crowd when we got there but it was pretty easy to take shots without people by the side/photobombing us. If you come with a guide, your guide will usually bring you to the best photo spots. While you're taking pictures there, they will go ahead and line up at another spot so that once you're done taking pics, you can quickly take pics at another spot. I was pretty delighted how organized everything was + how smooth and cooperative all the tourists + guides there were.

Kelingking Beach is a hidden beach in the village of Bunga Mekar, on the southwestern coast of Nusa Penida island. The view from the top/over the hills is one of the most famous in Bali, making this spot a must-visit on your visit.

From the top you'll see a limestone covered in green set against the deep blue waters of the open Indian Ocean. It looks similar to a T-rex dinosaur so a lot of locals nicknamed it T-rex Bay. Down below is a very secluded beach (which is the actual Kelingking beach).

Once you get there you actually start off at the top, so you don't have to worry about any trekking. You do, however, have to trek down if you want to visit the beach. We didn't visit it since we didn't really want to trek down, but here's some pics I found on Instagram:

Here's another photo spot where you can sit and look like you're on the edge of the world!

I was pretty lucky yo have my brother with us on this trip to help us take pictures, but if you hire a guide, you don't have to worry! Aside from telling you which spots are good for taking pics, the guides were all also very enthusiastic about helping people take their pictures. It wasn't even the simple 1-2-we're done kind of help, they were all like "turn here a bit" "yes now let's try this angle" "do you want landscape or portrait?". Super super helpful!

*yes that's my brother up on a tree helping us take wide shots hahaha*

Here are some more shots from the cliffside:

The dinosaur head really looked like a dinosaur, don't you think?

On the right side you can also see the lush greenery of Nusa Penida, and it kind of reminded me of the island from The Incredibles lol

Aside from that cliff photo spot, there are wooden railings all over the place for your safety.

The trekking bath down to the beach also has wooden railings, but the path is quite steep. As I mentioned, we didn't trek down. We just took pictures instead haha.

Here are some ultra vain shots of me and Bo's jacket, trying to be all conceptual haha

Overall I really enjoyed this place, not just because it was beautiful, but because it was organized + easy to shoot at! Considering that it was a popular tourist spot, the crowd wasn't rowdy at all. I kept on telling my brother and Bo that it was all good because of the Bali vibes hahaha.

And that's it for this post! If you're interested in reading all about the West Nusa Penida Whole Day Trip we booked on Klook, click here to read my review.
