Peguyangan Waterfall is one of the most popular locations on Nusa Penida Island and home to the Instafamous Blue Stairs.
Located on the southeast coast of Nusa Penida, it takes a little longer to get to this attraction, though it’s an experience not to be missed during your visit.
I have put together this complete guide including how to get there, how much it costs, and what to expect when you arrive.

WHERE IS PEGUYANGAN WATERFALL?
Peguyangan Waterfall lies at the base of towering cliffs along the southwest coastline on Nusa Penida Island.
HOW TO GET THERE
The easiest way to get to Peguyangan Waterfall Nusa Penida 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.

All this for less than $40 USD.

ARRIVING AT PEGUYANGAN
You’ll arrive at a small parking lot at the top of the cliffs and it’s here where you will have to pay a small entrance fee of 5,000 IDR.
A sarong is also required to be worn as there is a sacred temple at the bottom of the cliffs. If you don’t have a towel or sarong to wear, these can be rented from the parking attendant for an additional 10,000 IDR.
There is a small warung at the top if you want to grab something to eat and drink before you head down the stairs. For 10,000 IDR, you can grab a sizeable plate of nasi goreng to fuel you for the adventure.
There are 750 blue stairs that are impressively constructed into the side of the cliff providing access to the waterfall. It’s a good workout hiking down and then back up again that’s for sure!
There are several viewpoints that make for great photo opportunities as you make your way down to the base of the cliffs.

The famous Blue Stairs
WHAT TO EXPECT
After a 20 minute hike down the blue stairs, you’ll arrive at the sacred water temple that features four waterspouts.
When I visited, there were some locals showering under the spouts in their underwear with not a worry in the world.
I waited my turn to enjoy an invigorating shower under each of the waterspouts and then continued along the cliff.
The waterfall itself is not your common 50-meter meter waterfall, like those you will find in Bali, but rather a waterspout between a crack in a rock where crystal clear water flows out into tiered rock pools and over the cliff edge into the ocean.
The rock pools are shaded under a natural half-cave which is very unique and like nothing I have seen before.
Marveling at the rocky coastline
After swimming in the rock pools and showering under the waterfall, a small mass of local Indonesians started to gather around the sacred water temple.
Offerings were laid out in front of the temple followed by lit incense sticks giving off a smoky haze in the air. We watched in silence as they began to pray around the altar.
It’s small details like these that make the experiences even more memorable. Indonesia is good for that!
