My one day tour of Kelingking and Broken beach;
I actually visited Kelingking secret point beach then made my way to the broken beach on Nusa Penida in the same day. From my accommodation on Nusa Penida it was easier to visit Kelingking beach first for a few hours, which was good before the weather got to hot. We started this day early to make sure we could fit everything in.
We wanted to visit Kelingking beach, Billabong and the broken beach in one day. And we wanted to be back on the road to our hostel before it got to dark on Nusa Penida. The roads are terrible in places so I would place your trip in advance to avoid driving in the dark in bad places.
This was the first time to this amazing beach on Nusa Penida island. We spent a little time on the Kelingking beach high cliff to get some of these cool photos. Make sure you be careful up here, the Kelingking beach height to the top is high.
After grabbing some photos we made our way down the Kelingking beach hike. This is the most difficult hike you will do on Nusa Penida! Crystal bay is a top place to grab some epic photos.
At the bottom we just spent a few hours ‘chilling’ on the beach and enjoying the stunning Nusa Penida coast line
Then after visiting Kelingking secret point beach we made our way to the broken beach. This was a crazy scooter ride and one I won’t forget anytime soon! The roads got crazy and the road near the Broken beach is so dusty.
When we arrived at the beach, we dumped the scooter at the parking area. Grabbed a snack from one of the local stalls and then headed to the Broken beach.
We spent an hour hiking around the beach and checking out the amazing scenery. The coastal line on Nusa Penida is amazing! We spent another hour here sunbathing and relaxing. The area is massive on broken beach so there is plenty of spots for families and visitors to relax. You will get to visit here on your tour of Nusa Penida, if you choose to do that.
One day trip to Nusa Penida
Broken beach history
The local people of the Nusa islands (Pasih uug location), believe that the story of the formation of Pasih Uug is a fact of an old story about a boy and is missing cow.
The history of the broken beach is about a group of local people that ate the boy’s missing cow. When the group was asked by the child about the missing cow, they completely denied knowing anything about the missing cow.
The child set up a stick in the ground and asked the citizens to take turns pulling the stick out of the ground. None was successful in removing the stick.
It was actually the child that finally pulled the stick out of the ground in which this caused a earthquake at the broken beach.
This is what the locals believe to be as the broken beach history.

What is the Angle’s Billabong entrance fee?
