Until a few years ago, the island of Nusa Penida off the coast of Bali was a fairly undiscovered gem. Thanks to Instagram (whether you love it or hate it!) the islands popularity has skyrocketed with ferry loads of day trippers and adventurers sticking around for a little longer making their way to this adventure paradise.
Following two brilliant trips to Nusa Penida so far this year, and encountering endless groups of lost travellers attempting to explore the island independently, followed by endless questions thrown my way by friends looking for advice about visiting, i thought it’s about time someone put together a comprehensive guide on visiting the island, how to get there, where to stay and some words of warning.
I’ve put a lot of time and effort into this guide and hope you will find it helpful!
