    Kelingking Beach

    If the beaches of Bali aren't quite stunning enough for you then hop on a boat and make the short trip over to the island of Nusa Penida, you won't be disappointed.

The competition is pretty stiff with spots like Atuh and Suwehan beach being jaw-droppingly beautiful,… read more »

    The little island of Nusa Penida sits 20 km across the Badung Strait from Bali. For such a small island it certainly punches above its weight in terms of beaches with several of the very finest in Indonesia found here.

    I Ketut Arnaya

    Broken beach is one Bali's (or Nusa Penida's) most instantly recognisable beaches. An almost perfect circle of tall limestone cliffs surround a shallow pool of turquoise water. I say almost perfect as this beach is "broken", in fact the Balinese name for the beach isĀ Pasih Uug, meaning "damaged beach".

    So what is broken about this beach? Well this could refer to the impressive rock arch that links the beach to the… read more »
