You can float and relax while taking in the beauty of the sea that lies just beyond the edge of the pool. It is told that the name of Angel’s Billabong reflects the view that a place this beautiful must be the bathing pool of the angels themselves.

The best time to visit the Billabong is between 9 and 11 am – at that time, the waves of the ocean beyond are calm and still, imbibing the experience of floating in serenity as one of true heaven.
Broken Bay, or Pasih Uug, is one of the most unique natural phenomena on Nusa Penida. The name Pasih Uug comes from the local dialect and means broken bay or beach – a direct reference to the history and formation of this landmark. You can clearly see the gaping hole and arch that gives Broken Beach its name, and it is this that, combined with the brillant blue expanse of sea and lines of wild cliffs in the background that makes Pasih Uug one of our most popular locations.
Kelingking Beach is a hidden beach o on the southwestern coast of Nusa Penida island. You can enjoy one of the most breath-taking views over the hills and small strip of white sand from a top of the hill. The sight features a limestone headland covered in green, against the deep blue waters of the open Indian Ocean.
Enjoying the scenic seascape and taking photos and selfies from above would be sufficient for most. You can enjoy the sweeping views from a purpose-built platform, which is bordered by bamboo fences.
Crystal Bay is famous amongst photographers, divers and snorkellers. Facing west it has a small temple on an island just off shore, great for sunset silhoutte photos.

Giri Putri Cave Tample
Goa Giri Putri, or the Princess Cave Temple, one of the most famous on the island. This temple is thought to be around one hundred years old. Many Hindus and some Buddhists from all over Indonesia come to Pura Goa Giri Putri to search for inner peace, to pray or to meditate.
A short walk up the stairs (which includes breathtaking vistas of the ocean) leads to the temple entrance. A small aperture in the rock opens up into a magnificent cave housing the temple. Walk through to the end and be rewarded with a view out the other side of the hill, you can choose this as your exit if you wish.

Pasih Andus, or the Waterblow Hole, has a uniqueness of its very own. At Pasih Andus, you can be entertained by the natural phenomenon of the ocean shooting into the air as a result of the waves crashing against the cliff wall and funnelling through a small channel. Every so often, as we wait in anticipation, the water truly blows up into the air! The location of Pasih Andus lies on the west side of the island, only about one and a half kilometres from Broken Bay. Pasih Andus can be reached with a scooter or car.
You may have watched (a long time ago!) the television show called Teletubbies. If not, allow me to introduce you to it – four strangely shaped and coloured characters live in the wild on a rounded hill. The hill looks surprisingly similar to a series of round hills on Nusa Penida – thus giving this location the name Teletubby Hill. Teletubby Hill offers you a view that is extraordinarily special. From here, you feel as though you have become one with the mountains surrounding you, merging into one of the small, rounded and neatly arranged hills. This location is also particularly peaceful, as it is located far from any busy centres or villages. Teletubby Hill is nearby Tanglad, the weaving village, on the eastern side of Nusa Penida. You’ll need about one hour travelling time (by scooter or car) from our office in Ped.
If you like trekking, Tembeling Forest is the perfect choice for you. Tembeling is the last remnant of natural forest that once covered areas of the island.
The walk down is through thick, green vegitation and the forest is filled with the melodious calls of native birds. After reaching the bottom of the track, you are rewarded with cooling off in the pools formed by a natural spring below. Tembeling Forest has two pools, both of spiritual significance, one for men and one for women.
