Diamond Beach Nusa Penida is one of the most amazing beaches I have ever been to and it’s not to be missed during your visit to the island.

WHERE IS DIAMOND BEACH NUSA PENIDA?

Diamond Beach can be found on the far most eastern point of Nusa Penida Island.

Click here to see Diamond Beach Nusa Penida on Google Maps.

Diamond Beach Nusa Penida lies in between two other awesome locations, Rumah Pohon Tree House and Atuh Beach. You can visit all three of these locations on the same day.

 

HOW TO GET TO DIAMOND BEACH BALI

The easiest way to get to Nusa Penida Diamond Beach is by scooter.

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.

Be sure to get a helmet as an extra precaution for riding on the roads in Nusa Penida as they are not very well maintained with potholes and loose gravel in many areas.

DIAMOND BEACH TOUR

If you happen to be in Bali and planning to visit Nusa Penida Island, there is one tour that I can highly recommend which covers all the highlights on a full-day trip from Bali, including Diamond Beach.

The Nusa Penida East Tour is the most top-rated tour with great reviews and hundreds of bookings.

This tour covers the top attractions such as Diamond Beach Penida, Atuh Beach, Rumah Pohon Tree House, and more! With a hassle-free pick-up and drop-off from your hotel, return boat transfers from Bali, a hearty lunch, and an English-speaking guide.

ARRIVING AT DIAMOND BEACH

When you arrive at the parking lot, you will have to pay a small entrance fee of 10,000 IDR to the parking lot attendant sitting in his booth before making your way down the stairs to the beach.

The chalky-white stairway at Diamond Beach Nusa Penida happens to be one of the most Instagrammed locations on the island, and it’s easy to see why.

It only takes around ten minutes to get down to the shoreline, though the stairs are quite narrow so please be careful and take your time on your descent.

WHAT TO EXPECT

I must admit, it’s a precarious walk down the rocky staircase on the side of the cliffs, but totally worth it as soon as you dip your toes into the soft sands at the bottom.

There are two beach areas at Diamond Beach Bali. One has vivid green mossy rocks and tidal rock pools but unfortunately quite of bit of trash was washed up on the sand here when my friends and I visited.

The other area of Diamond Beach Nusa Penida features a long stretch of glistening white sand, coconut palm trees, small caves, and it’s a much more suitable spot for swimming.

A small warung resides down on the beach where you can purchase cold refreshments and local dishes such as mie goreng and nasi goreng for as little as $3.

You can also have a turn on the Diamond Beach Nusa Penida swing which is strung up between two coconut palms down by the beach.

I guarantee you will be in complete awe at the beauty that Diamond Beach Bali has to offer and if you manage to have the entire beach to yourself, it’ll make the experience one to remember.

MY EXPERIENCE

There are a few small caves to explore at the foot of the cliffs at Diamond Beach Nusa Penida. I crawled inside one of the caves to get a quick photo and enjoyed a different perspective of the beach.

My friend Camilla perused the shoreline and found two handfuls of beautiful seashells. Some were as large as my palm and in perfect condition.

Before we continued our adventures on the island, my friends and I went for a swim in the turquoise waters and I can honestly say I did not want to get out. I could have chilled on this beach for days. It was a great spot for a dip to cool off after the sweaty hike down the stairs.

  1. Hello! Me and my friends are set to go to Bali next week and they assigned me to plan the itinerary. Came across your blog while researching and wew, this makes me want to go to Diamond Beach! I already read a couple of blogs about this undiscovered gem in Nusa Penida but your blog is by far the most detailed and made me conclude that we must not leave Bali without visiting this magnifique. Our accomodation is already booked in Kuta only and we plan to do a 1-day tour in Nusa Penida. Would you know if it’s possible for us to visit the 3 beaches — Kelingking, Diamond Beach, and Angel’s Billabong/Broken Beach in a day? Or if not, just Kelingking and Diamond Beach? I know Kelingking is in the West and Diamond is in the East, but will there be drivers or tours around Nusa Penida that can accomodate this not-so-usual itinerary? Since driving is not an option for us. 🙁

    Hope you can help me out on this one before we get there next week! 🙂 2 thumbs up on your blog!

    • Hello, my advice to you would be to stay on Nusa Penida Island for one night to enjoy those 4 beaches you have mentioned. As soon as you arrive to the port you will be able to find a local driver for the day just ask around. It is possible to visit all those beaches but it will be a very rushed day so up to you. Visit diamond beach as soon as you arrive and then head to the west and visit kelingking, broken and angels billabong. 🙂
