Angel’s Billabong features a natural infinity pool overlooking the ocean and it just so happens to be one of Nusa Penida’s most popular attractions.
Safe to say, it’s a must-see location on your Nusa Penida itinerary!
I have put together this ultimate guide to Angel’s Billabong Nusa Penida including how to get there, the best time to visit, and what to expect when you arrive.
WHERE IS ANGEL’S BILLABONG?
Angel’s Billabong can be found on the far most western tip on Nusa Penida’s coastline.
From the main town of Toya Pakeh, it’s approximately a 45-minute drive to reach Angels Billabong.
HOW TO GET TO ANGELS BILLABONG?
The best way to get here is by scooter.
The roads on Nusa Penida Island are not very well maintained so please be aware of this and take it slow on the loose gravel roads. Be sure to get a helmet as an extra precaution.
There are a number of scooter rental shops dotted along the beachfront at Toya Pakeh harbor that will be able to sort you out with some wheels when you arrive on the island.
Alternatively, most accommodations will help you to organize a scooter rental for the time you plan to spend on Nusa Penida Island.
You can expect to pay around 70,000 IDR per day for a Nusa Penida scooter rental with a full tank of gas.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT ANGEL’S BILLABONG?
When you arrive at Angels Billabong, there is a parking lot at the top of the cliffs and the parking fee is 10,000 IDR.
From here, simply follow the signposts leading the way down the steps to the Billabong. I guarantee you won’t get lost.
There are a number of viewpoints at the billabong; my favorite is down in the infinity pool itself. The water is clear as crystal and the temperature is nice and cool, perfect for a refreshing dip.
The rocks are quite sharp and rugged getting down into the infinity pool, but once you step in, the rocks under the water’s surface are surprisingly smooth and easy to walk on.

MANTA RAY VIEWPOINT
There is plenty of exploring to do around the cliffs and you may be lucky enough to spot some manta rays cruising around in the ocean below the cliffs.
See below for some awesome shots I took of the manta rays from above.
