Kelingking Beach Nusa Penida

One of the two most famous beaches of Nusa Penida

Indonesia, Nusa Penida
1-2 hours

Kelingking Beach is an awe-inspiring and scenic coastal destination located on the southwestern coast of Nusa Penida, an island off the southeast coast of Bali, Indonesia. It's renowned for its iconic T-Rex-shaped cliff formation and breathtaking panoramic views.

After the car park you will pass several restaurants and shops and then come to the cliff's edge to witness the stunning vista of the turquoise waters, rugged cliffs, and the expansive coastline below. There is a popular spot for capturing stunning photographs and admiring the natural beauty of Nusa Penida.

The main attraction at Kelingking Beach is the dramatic limestone cliff that resembles the shape of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, hence its nickname "T-Rex Bay." Maybe you can see it in the photos =)

The hike down to the beach itself from the cliff's viewpoint involves a steep and challenging trail with hundreds of steps carved into the cliffside. Once at the bottom you can enjoy a pristine stretch of white sandy beach, crystal-clear waters, and stunning rock formations. However, swimming here can be challenging due to strong currents, so be cautious!

Entrance fee: 10.000 IDR
