BALI, KOMPAS.com – Plan an escape from the busy tourist spots in Nusa Penida by visiting Atuh Beach, a hidden beach off the coast of Bali.
Atuh Beach boasts cliffside views and white sand. The hilly cliffs surrounding this Nusa Penida beach make it all the more beautiful.
Nusa Penida is one of three Nusa islands off the coast of Bali, hence making it an ideal hidden beach as it is lesser-known to tourists.
To reach Atuh Beach, travelers must cross Sanur Bali Port and head towards Banjar Nyuh Port deemed the ‘entrance gate’ to the Nusa Penida island followed by a 45-minute walk from Banjar Nyuh Port to arrive at the beach.
The entrance fee is Rp 5,000 per person and the journey to get to this tourist destination in Nusa Penida is truly unique.
There is a steep, stoned staircase that travelers must pass through to descend if they seek to feel the warm white sand, but it only takes 15 minutes from top to bottom.
The best place to visit this stunning hidden beach in Bali is 5:30am as the beach faces towards the East making it an ideal spot to catch views of the sunrise.
In the daytime, travelers can sit and relax under the many colorful beach umbrellas while having a meal ordered at one of the food stalls in the area.
