Most people do a Nusa Penida day trip from Bali, but with so much to see on the island, I highly recommend trying to do a 2-day Nusa Penida trip itinerary so you aren’t as rushed or have to choose between the West and East side attractions.

Although there are Nusa Penida East and West tour options for day trips they are super rushed and exhausting with the travel times so if possible try getting a Nusa Penida tour package for the east and west Nusa Penida island tour separately.

Ask for him by name and you will not be disappointed. This company’s tours are unbelievable! Very professional The 2 day instagram tour hits all the iconic picturesque sights in Bali. There is driving but never more than 2 hours between sights and our guide was a great conversationalist. Iwayan Kar picked us up from our hotel in an AC equipped van with bottled water for our family of 4. He was incredibly friendly and dressed in traditional Balinese Sarong. He took special care to point out culturally and spiritually significant things throughout the drive and gave us a thorough history of his countries lifestyle, customs and traditions. In comparison to other Bali drivers, Iwayan Kar was skilled, safe and we weren’t as anxious as we seemed to be while riding with other drivers.

Nusa Penida East Tour Travel Tips

Based on my research and personal experience, here are some essential tips for visiting Nusa Penida East:

  1. Plan your Itinerary/Tour: The island has much to offer, so it’s crucial to have a clear plan. Thats why I strongly recommend using a tour, they take the planning, logistics and hassle out of the trip for you!
  2. Safety First: The roads in Nusa Penida can be extremely bumpy, even and down right treacherous. I DO NOT recommend using a motorbike and trying to do it yourself. The roads are pretty bad – use a tour, they are local, know the roads, and the rules and will stick to a great time schedule. safety is their priority.
  3. Dress Appropriately: Wear flip-flops and clothes you don’t mind getting wet, when on the snorkelling tour. The boat rides can sometimes be a splashy affair! For the rest of the trip, wear light weight, quick drying comfortable clothes, its very hot and extremely humid.
  4. Choose the Right Season: The best time to visit is during the dry season (April to October), when the weather is warm, and sunny, and the sea is calm.
  5. Pack Smart: Use a waterproof backpack to protect your belongings during boat rides.
  6. Explore with a Guide: Using a guide or joining a tour allows them to arrange everything for you, from boat rides to transport, making your trip hassle-free and more enjoyable.

Remember, every journey to Nusa Penida East is an adventure waiting to unfold. Enjoy every moment!
