To explore some exotic beaches in Nusa Penida, people start with Angels Billabong. The beauty of Angel’s Billabong is undeniable; therefore uniqueness of this tourist attraction has a special place in the hearts of tourists. Angel’s Billabong is a beach with coral forming a corridor. There is seawater in the middle of the coral with gradation colours, namely light blue, dark blue, and turquoise. Angel’s Billabong comes from the word “Angel”, which means angel, and “Billabong”, which means an end of a dead-end river.

Here visitors can dive and watch Manta fish (the world’s most giant stingray) swim freely with them.
After being satisfied with taking selfies, visitors can go to Klingking Beach. Klingking Beach or Karang Dawa is located in Buga Mekar Village. This beach can be called the icon of Nusa Penida. At Kelingking Beach, a unique curve of rock cliffs resembles the neck of a Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-Rex) jutting into the beach. The cliffs blend perfectly with the small coral, forming a stunning view. People can enjoy the beach with clean white sand at Kelingking beach by descending the stairs, which takes 45 minutes and requires extra energy to climb back up because of the steep contours.
When people hear the word “broken”, something negative comes to their mind. But unlike the name Broken Beach beach in Banjar Sumpang, Bunga Mekar Village is unique and presents a different experience. The title Broken Beach is based on a high cliff with a hole in the middle. Broken Beach is also known as Pantai Pasih Uug, a broken beach.
This beach has a cliff height of about 50-200 meters with a hole in the middle, so it looks like a cave flowing with seawater. The seawater trapped in the middle of this cliff looks like a giant pool. The hole in the cliff also adds to the uniqueness of this place because it seems like a bridge.
