Other Top Places To Visit in Nusa Penida

Diamond Beach

Diamond Beach is one of several top "cliff beaches" in Bali, Nusa Penida, with stunning white sand and a clear blue sea. The name was inspired by the jagged, diamond-shaped rocks on the shore. The popular feature is the overlook, where you may take pictures with a thatched nest and spectacular views.

Travelers come to pay their respects and make offerings amid the sanctuary's odalan, the gift of building, around twilight time, while the canines in the range scream incessantly. The sanctuary is made of limestone, and its washed-out white coloring lends the range a scary feel and environment. Pura Dalem Ped is an amazing temple to visit in Bali.
