It is located near the Broken Beach, it also called Pasih Uug in the Indonesian local language. Between the rocks flows a lagoon crystal clear pools where you can swim and soak the sun. The water is so clear that you can see the pattern of the rocks beneath the surface. Just be sure to swim when it is low tide as there are many sharp rocks around and there have been deaths at the billabong!
The Broken beach on Nusa Penida is one of the best beaches on Nusa Penida. If you’re visiting Nusa Penida then I would highly recommend putting this Nusa Penida beach on your itinerary.

The beach is isolated from beautiful green cliffs, while several limestone rock formations surround it, adding beauty to the area. You can access the white-sand beach from a specially designed staircase or try the narrow paths along a steep cliff if you’re feeling adventurous.
The beach is ideal for relaxing with spectacular views. However, the waters are not always conducive to swimming. If you are visiting Nusa Penida for at least 1 night, then I would highly recommend visiting Nusa Penida.
