This newly renovated Diamond beach in Nusa Penida is the most beautiful beach in the island and in Bali!
Since they finished it in 2018 we knew he had to visit it, that's why we extended our trip to Nusa Penida for 2 full days and include it in our itinerary.
It is located on the East side of the island. You will need a car to get here, bike can be an option too but be aware the roads are not finished and can be difficult to get to.
When you arrive here you will need to pay a small fee to enter, then just follow the path to this view point where you can see how beautiful it is from above.
You will fall in love as soon as you see it, crystal clear water, white sand and rocks that look like diamonds.
As you start walking down you will see the famous rock stairs where everyone takes the photos. It is very small and may get quite crowded, especially after 11 that is when the ferries arrive full of people
Be aware walking down the stairs is not as easy as it seems, they weren't finished when we went in April 2019 and the last part you had to climb down holding a rope! Yes, it was a little bit scary as we were carrying a few bags with us!
Tip: Get here before 9.30 am to avoid the crowds
The first stop on the way down is a new swing they installed a few months ago next to a little cafe. I wanted to try both nests and paid 60k for both of them. The view was amazing and loved the photos we took.
After the swing you will need to hike down a little bit more, there's no path, you will just need to climb down some big rocks.
Tip: It is better to come in the morning as the water level may be to high in the evening to see the beach!
Diamond Beach is definitely one of the main things you need to see during your trip in Bali
We spent two days in the island and book our trip with Nusa Penida Trip. They have different packages you can choose from for an affordable place, totally worth it.
Remember to bring enough water and comfortable shoes, and more important, don't forget your camera!
Tip: If you are hungry keep walking up, you will find a little local restaurant looking to another beach next to Diamond beach and can have lunch with a lovely view. They even had tempeh!
