West Nusa Penida

About West Nusa Penida

Exploring West Nusa Penida offers a different perspective of the island, with its rugged coastline, pristine beaches, and stunning viewpoints. Here are the best photo locations in West Nusa Penida:

Crystal Bay

Crystal Bay, a beautiful beach with crystal-clear waters and soft white sand. This beach boasts a beautiful stretch of pristine white sand that slopes gently into the clear turquoise waters off the Indian Ocean.

Crystal Bay is probably the most popular beach on Nusa Penida for a number of reasons. It is the best sunset beach, facing directly west. This alone makes it a winner for a sunset photo session at the beach. I usually visit this beach before heading to Kelingking or Broken Beach. This beach also popular for snorkeling, I did snorkel once around the beach and it was fantastic!

Broken Beach (Pasih Uug)

Also known as Pasih Uug, Broken Beach is a breathtakingly beautiful natural archway that stretches over the ocean. The archway was formed by the erosion of the limestone cliffs over thousands of years, resulting in a circular hole with the ocean flowing underneath it. The natural bridge offers stunning panoramic views of the ocean and the surrounding coastline. Visitors can walk along the cliffside path to admire the beauty of Broken Beach from various viewpoints. It’s also a popular spot for photography, offering unique and dramatic backdrops.

Angel’s Billabong

This natural rock formation is essentially a natural infinity pool formed by the ocean’s waves over time. The crystal-clear waters of Angel’s Billabong create a mesmerizing turquoise pool that is perfect for swimming and soaking. The natural pool is surrounded by rugged rock formations, creating a picturesque and serene environment. Both Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach are located close to each other on the western coast of Nusa Penida, making them convenient to visit together.

Best Time to Shoot

Best time to shoot on West Nusa Penida is on sunset start from 3pm. Shooting during sunset on West Nusa Penida can yield stunning and dramatic photographs, especially with the golden hour light casting a warm glow over the rugged coastline and picturesque landscapes. Starting your photography session around 3pm allows you to capture the changing colors of the sky as the sun begins to set.

What to Wear For Photoshoot at West Nusa Penida

When visiting Nusa Penida, it’s important to dress appropriately for the tropical climate. Given the warm and humid weather in Nusa Penida, opt for lightweight dress or shirt for him. Breathable clothing made from natural fabrics like cotton or linen would be great. Casual attire also would be nice in Nusa Penida. Nusa Penida has a laid-back and relaxed atmosphere, so casual clothing would make you comfortable during a session.
