Kelingking Beach

If the height doesn’t take your breath away, that view surely will. The view of Kelingking is arguably more popular than the beach itself. From a steep, lush cliff visitors look down onto the sugar-white sand enveloped by the famous limestone headland that reaches out into the Indian Ocean. Also nicknamed ‘T-Rex Bay’ for its arm-shaped rock, Kelingking Beach is remotely set on the southwestern coast of Nusa Penida island. If you’re up for another trek after getting there, getting down to the beach itself is another 400m hike. But, we can only recommend this for the most fit and adventurous.

Getting there

The best way to reach Kelingking Beach is to fly into Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar. From there, you can take a taxi to Sanur Beach, where you’ll find the fast boat to Nusa Penida. Kelingking Beach is on the southwest side of the island, and it is relatively easy to find when following the signs via motorbike. You can explore flight options with Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, Air India, KLM and other popular airlines.
