Broken Beach in Nusa Penida – Is it Really Broken?

The Broken Beach in Nusa Penida is one of the most-visited tourist attractions on the small island, next to Bali. But is it really broken? When I saw it personally, I couldn’t figure out why they call it as such. Nothing there is broken. If you know why let me know in the comments below.

As you can see in these photos, there is a natural bridge with a natural arched tunnel under it.

The water passes through the tunnel and smashes to the small beach below.

Of course, there’s no way going down to the beach, except taking a boat tour – as we were told.

You see, the area is circular, and the hole in the middle forms a 50-200 meters high cliff.

It is a unique rock formation and truly one of the island’s natural wonders.

While there is no one to bar you from posing on the cliffs, you need to watch out for yourself. If you have vertigo problems, you better not try my poses! πŸ™‚

Have time to go around the rocky cliff to see more of the rocky coastline.

While you are here, it’s a good idea to visit the nearby Angel Billabong, a natural infinity pool.

Where to Stay: A Bamboo House in Nusa Penida

My friends and I stayed at Penida Bambu Green Villa. As the name suggests, the rooms or houses are made of bamboos – simple but well-designed. And yes, it’s a very photogenic place, too – so your Instagram feed will be amazing! The property has a swimming pool and excellent wifi connection. The staff members are accommodating and were helpful. Most of all, despite our worries, there were no mosquitos. We really had a sound sleep all throughout the night.
