How to get to Nusa Penida

There should be different ways, so please ask the receptionist of your hotel. We took a taxi from our hotel to Sanur and from Sanur we took a boat to Nusa Penida. We booked our ferry tickets online one day before the departure with Ray Fish fast cruises. I suggest that you take a morning boat because, from experience and from what we’ve heard from others, the afternoon boat ride can get really rough.

How to get around

Our hotel organized a personal driver for us. He was very flexible with the itinerary and the timing. We had him for one whole day, from morning till sunset. We were very happy with this service.

Where to stay

We stayed in an amazing hotel, called The Mesare Resort. We found the resort on Instagram. The resort offers 14 enchanting cottages with views to large organic gardens. I loved this hotel very much and I would highly recommend it to others.

My travel tips

I’ve heard people going to Nusa Penida just for one day trip from Bali. I wouldn’t recommend that as I find it very stressful. We wanted to enjoy Nusa Penida and see most of what the island has to offer. So we chose to stay 2 nights. Therefore, I would recommend you to stay at least 2 nights, if possible.

The Verdict

You may not believe it but it’s true. We liked Nusa Penida more than Bali. Nusa Penida was exactly what we expected to see from Indonesia: an unspoiled island without traffic and palm trees everywhere.
