We went to Nusa Penida from Sanur by boat to do two scuba dives. The first was off the coast of the west side of the island and a deeper dive so we coudl see the prehistory looking Mola Mola fish that are unbelievably large. This dive was not my favourite as it was really strong with currents, don't go... More

This Island is amazing. A lot of beautiful things to explore. But what makes it bad is because the acces to those places is really difficult and takes a long time. The roads are really bad. Hope they can make it better in the next time

Excellent brings you back n bali time! Loved the time with family - keep it clean when you leave please. Great tree house and we went camping in a secret spot. The food was great Indonesian and fresh fish. I kept busy snorkeling and spearing and cooking it up for my family.

Well worth a visit if you are sick of the crowds on Bali, Gillis, Lombok or Nusa Lembongan. I have been visiting Indonesia for the past 41 years travelling to many outlying islands. This place is a gem and so easy to access from neighbouring Bali. With boats from Sanur, Kasumba and Padang Bai. Easy to get around on a... More

You can reach the island in many ways, from Sanur, Padang Bai etc. I try from Sanur with Maruti speed boat, very cheap. If you use the car to the island then you must go to Padang Bai and use Roro ferry to Nusa Penida. There's no harbor in Sanur, go to the speed boat by walking to the shore... More

This tour is a SCAM. My husband and I are on our honey moon and have loved everything about Bali and this ruined it for us on our last day in this beautiful country. I don't even know where to start. We were picked up at 6:30 by our diver who took us to the port and stayed with us... More

Nusa Penida drift along several sites; beautiful healthy corals, manta rays and turtles were the interest that attracted my attention. Visibility was as good as 25-30m during my several dives in Dec 2014. Guided by the Poni divers Bali. Sengkek at the time was Dive master guided, knowledgeable about the sites as well as what can be expected to be... More
