Kelingking Beach in Nusa Penida – The Secret Utopia

Nusa Penida is one of the most beautiful places in Bali and it has many hidden gems left to explore. Having so many amazing views, it is almost impossible to select a few and ignore the rest. However, the one which stands above all is the Kelingking Secret Point Beach which is known for the Tyrannosaurus Rex shaped cliff. The name of the beach translates into pinkie in English due to the resemblance of the little finger. The beach attracts a lot of tourists from all over the world and the location became so popular due to its amazing views.

Best way to reach Kelingking Beach in Nusa Penida

Gaping on the beautiful paradise and want to know about the secret way to the place, then here it is. These are the best ways to visit Kelingking T-Rex Beach. You can rent a moped while on Nusa Penida and reach the beach by a solo adventure. You can also join a customizable tour from Bali. With this option, you can pick the beach spots you want to visit. Once you reach there, you will be amazed by the stretch of gorgeous beaches and nature’s charm.

The Secret point of Kelingking Beach

The Kelingking Beach is 30 minutes away from the harbour of Nusa Penida. The best way to reach there is by hiring and moped. There is a restaurant resting on the mountain which has some spectacular views. The journey to the restaurant will be the best way to start the voyage to the secret paradise. One of the dangerous facts is that your life is safeguarded only by a bamboo railing. There is no rail or any safety gear to protect and the grass just leads you off the edge at many spots along the cliff edge. This increases the lack of safety. The lack of safety is the exact reason why you should be very careful and cautious as you walk along the edge and not distracted too much by the beauty of the stunning views.

Viewpoints at Kelingking Beach

As you make your way down after a good time at the restaurant you can reach the main viewing point. You can savour the best views of the beach from an awesome angle. The shape of the dinosaur which made the place popular can be seen at full glory from here. It will be like the dinosaur’s mouth is wide open on the left with the tail that coils on the right. You can also take the path down to the beach but the climb back is very steep. The path is short and has railings along the route. If you think that you will find it difficult to hike and make it back up, you can just experience the view from the top.

Here comes the Paradise

Once you reach the beach, you can already feel the exciting vibe. It is a shore-break beach you can see the waves crumble into the shore and this beach isn’t for the amateur swimmers. Don’t swim on the beach if you aren’t completely confident in handling the conditions over there. The place is best visited during the sunset and you can have an amazing night following that. This is a must-visit place when you are at Nusa Penida.
