Climbing Kelingking Beach Nusa Penida

If the majestic view from Kelingking Beach Nusa Penida is not enough, there is also a path that leads down to the beach at the bottom.

This climb requires a lot of energy, is somewhat daunting for those with a fear of heights, and takes at least 2 hours return. It is very steep and requires you to concentrate and if you are not careful, it is very dangerous to get hurt.

Wear proper footwear when climbing down. Sandals won't give you enough grip, and the rocks are too hot for bare feet.

Drinks are sometimes sold down below, but they are more expensive and there is no guarantee that they will be available. You can buy drinks at one of the stalls near the top of the cliff before you start climbing.

The beach at the bottom is unspoilt, the waves are big and there are even some caves down there, as you can see in the picture below!

Kelingking Beach offers various natural attractions

Kelingking Beach has managed to attract both local and foreign tourists. T-Rex Bay is another name many people know for Kelingking Beach. This nickname was given for a reason. The cliffs at T-Rex Bay really do resemble a roaring T-Rex.

There are some other facts that you should know before visiting this spot in Nusa Penida. Here is some information about Kelingking Beach that you should know.

1.The Beach is Under the Cliff

Unlike most beaches that are located on a wide plain, the beach at T-Rex Bay is located far below a rather steep cliff. To get to the beach, tourists have to go down stairs that are quite steep and tiring.

Unfortunately, visitors are not advised to climb down the steep cliff. It is much safer to enjoy the charm of Kelingking Beach from the top of the hill, especially if visitors are not fit or used to climbing cliffs.

2. Titanic Shipwreck Site

Although you can only enjoy its beautiful charm from the top of the hill, visitors can still enjoy precious moments and immortalise their memories by taking photos at the Titanic shipwreck spot. The spot is located at the entrance to Kelingking Beach.

From the ticket office, walk straight ahead to reach this photo spot. Meanwhile, to go straight to the most famous spot above T-Rex Bay, turn right after passing the Kelingking Beach ticket office.

3. Challenging Kelingking Beach Swing

There used to be a unique and interesting spot called Love Tree. This spot is a dry tree that tourists often climb to take pictures on the Kelingking Beach hill. Unfortunately, this tree was damaged in 2018. Instead, there is another interesting spot called Kelingking Swing.

At Kelingking Swing, visitors can take photos on the swing with a backdrop of enchanting blue sea water and fresh green hills. This is an extreme beach, so be careful with the use of the swing, especially if you are with children.

Kelingking Beach is the most beautiful natural charm hidden in Nusa Penida, Bali. There are several unique spots that must be visited when travelling to Kelingking Beach. But first, prepare your budgets accordingly for transportation and attraction’s entry ticket.
