How to get to Kelingking Secret Point

You can take a fast boat to Nusa Penida from Sanur beach, Bali which takes around 30 minutes, around 150,000 IDR (10$) or take a ferry over with your motor bike to explore the untouched island for 74,000 IDR (5$).

Both tickets can be bought at the pier and leave at least once a day starting at 8am for the fast boat and 11 for the ferry. Kelingking Secret point is located on the south west side of Nusa and can be accessed by one long road by motor bike, with few signs to help you along.

Where to stay

This island is still undiscovered with no hostels in site. The easiest way to stay on the island is to book and air bnb or villa, but with our lack of planning we found a quick and easy homestay last minute which can be found all over the island.

For now this breathtaking view is mostly visited by locals, with a small entrance fee of 5,000 IDR (35ยข). There are local guides but not yet easy to find for foreigners, as we lucked out by meeting one while exploring.

There are a couple Nusa Penida Tour instagrams to boom through or if you’d like to plan ahead you can book through a tour site in bali for a more expensive price to take you to beautiful spots like this.

A local guide on the island will charge around 150,000 IDR for a half day tour and 300,000 for a full day, but you will need your own bike as you will be following from place to place and these spots aren’t accessible by car.

What to do at Kelingking Secret Point

The difference with Kelingking Secret point is it’s not only an incredible view, but an adventure if you dare. Once you walk down from the parking area you get an entire view of the cliff and beach, as well as other view points and instagram worthy spots such as the tilted tree you can climb up. Once you walk to the t-rex view point, it’s up to you whether you want to venture further.

There is a locally made railing down the cliff, that is very steep which allows access to almost half of the rock formation, then directly down to the beach. Most people only make it half way, as our tour guide wouldn’t even come to the bottom.

I would advise rock climbing gear as the rest is dangerously steep with only a rope to keep your balance, but once you touch that untouched sand and crystal clear water it all becomes surreal. Up and down took around 1 and a half hours, including the breaks for photo-ops.

Why should Kelingking Secret Point be on my bucket list ?

This breathtaking view point should be on your bucket list as it is unknown to mass tourists and even more incredible in person. If you have to tools and endurance, make the trek down to the beach, but bring water (can be bought at the top) and drive, getting back up is not an easy task.
