South Coast Cliffs
The whole southern coast of Nusa Penida has spectacular, high white limestone cliffs which will simply take your breath away. Even by the standards of Nusa Penida, the southern quarter is remote and inaccessible. The roads are difficult and in places distinctly hairy. But once you get there it will all seem worthwhile. Some of the karst formations are really dramatic as are the numerous offshore pinnacles. Try anywhere along the south coast from Pendem, around Bakung Cape to the coast west of Batu Madeg. Allow plenty of time as the chances are you will get lost at some stage. On the eastcoast you have Atuh beach, which is one of those high white limestone cliffbeaches. You will have to drop your scooter off and make a little climb for 10 minutes. You will arrive on top of one of the cliffs and on the southern side there is a beautiful but inaccessible beach. You have an amazing view on some pinnacles and crystalclear water. Even from this height you can see the coral, and if you are lucky some turtles or mantas. More on the northern side is another beach which is accessible. Look for the very steep stairs going all the way down on the cliffwall. Swimming is possible, but only recommended on high tide, because on low tide you will have a hard time not stepping on the coral before you are deep enough to swim.
