10 Stunningly Beautiful Places To Visit On Nusa Penida

There can be little argument that Bali offers visitors some of the most stunningly beautiful natural sites of any holiday destination in the world, and there are some locations in particular that take that beauty to another level. One of those is Nusa Penida which is a small island that is located to the southeast of Bali and is separated from it by the Badung Strait.

Whilst it is certainly possible for you to make Nusa Penida the place you stay for your entire holiday given that it has several excellent hotels, many holidaymakers instead choose to take one of the many shuttle boats that go between the island and Bali, where their accommodation is located.
