Nusa Penida

"First we drove to teletubbies Hill. Whether the program was actually recorded there is no idea. At least it looked like it. Here was a nice road through the mountains. The last part of the road was very bad again. De Hill didn't mean much. Photo made and driven back. We wanted to go to Diamond Beach first. The navigation sent us a very bad path again. Here we are turned around at some point. We have kept the Atuh beach signs here. These two beaches would lie next to each other. Quite a few taxis drove that way, if we follow them, we will certainly end up in the right place. Half an hour again on a very bad road full of potholes and holes and finally arrived well again. What an amazingly beautiful place again. To reach Diamond beach you have to climb a very steep staircase."


          Nusa Penida is an island near Bali. Nusa Penida is the largest of the three Nusas - next to Lembongan and Ceningan and they are close together. Despite a number of tourist attractions on Nusa Penida, there are still a huge number of parts here that are inhabited by the locals and nature is still unspoilt. Nusa Penida has a very limited number of hotels and tourist features. Even so, what it lacks in infrastructure, it makes up for with unspoiled natural beauty and rare cultural highlights. More recently, the island became best known as the new sanctuary of the once-endangered Bali starling (originally an endemic species from the forested region of West Bali National Park) following a highly successful captive breeding programme.

The population of the island comes from neighboring Bali. The princes of Klungkung used this island as a prison in the past. Nusa Penida measures over 200 sq km. Unlike Bali, hardly any rice grows here. Agriculture consists of the cultivation of grains. From an economic point of view, the production of seaweed is important, with a focus on exports to Japan and Europe There are two places where the boats from Sanur and Padang Bai arrive: Toyapakeh and Sampalan.

Toyapakeh has about 600 inhabitants and will probably be the first contact with Nusa Penida when you approach the island from Bali. Toyapakeh is a beautiful village with many shady trees. The beach has clean white sand, clear blue water. This is the destination port of most speedboat companies. You can find some small warungs next to the beach and some homestays. There are always people on hand who can take you to your hotel / hostel or want to rent a scooter to you.
Most fastboat companies arrive between the harbor and the large jetty, where the ferries arrive. It is possible that long lines of trucks are waiting for the ferry to arrive. They stand in line here before the Bali building materials arrive for all Nusa Penida building projects


In Toyapakeh you can meet the locals and get more information about the village. For example, they can get to know the history of the name. It is said "Toya" means water and "Pakeh" means salt. The village was formed by many travelers who built a settlement and lived there until now. This explains why tourists can meet different tribes there, including Javanese, Balinese, Bugis and Banjarmasin people. This variety is quite interesting!


There is a daily market in Toyapakeh. This market is used by locals on the west side for selling and buying something. In the morning this market only sells ordinary things such as fish, vegetables and much more. The market remains open until the evening with local dishes and souvenirs for a very reasonable price. Sometimes it is very busy because the market is next to the road.

Sampalan, the most important and largest city in Penida, is quiet and pleasant and stretched out along the curved coastal road. The port of Sampalan is distinguished by a strategic location near the economic center of the island. The local population also uses this port for shipping goods and crossing the islands.
The interesting market is in the middle of the city. It is a good place to absorb village life. In Sampalan is the largest market of Nusa Penida: the Mentigi Market. Mentigi Market is the largest local market in Nusa Penida. It is located near the port of Sampalan. Mentigi market also known as Sampalan market. This place not only has the morning market, they also have the night market too! In the morning this market only sells ordinary things such as fish, vegetables and much more. They also have some food court in the morning, but not as much as in the evening.


Mentigi Market

From a travelogue:

"Atuh beach is on the other side of the cliffs and to reach this beach you also have to go down a steep staircase. So our second challenge. These steps are fortunately slightly wider. But very high steps. When we arrived downstairs we fell down in a lovely beanbag under a parasol. A tasty nasi goreng, a Bintang beer and a nice banana milkshake. We talked a bit with a couple of Dutch people and drank another radler. Then all the stairs up again. We burned the calories again and all the lazy sweat is out again. Drove back to the hotel. Tonight it is our last evening here. Nusa Penida is a very beautiful island."
