ANGEL’S BILLABONG IS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS TOURIST DESTINATION, HAS SPECTACULAR ROCK FORMATION ON NUSA PENIDA ISLAND’S SOUTHWESTERN CLIFF EDGES
Angel’s Billabong located nearby Pasih Uug (Broken Beach), another popular site with unique limestone formations. The naturally formed rock lagoon offers a scenic seascape. You can descend into its crystal-clear rock pools for a swim or a soak, but only during low tide. The rock pools are one of the must-sees for visitors to Nusa Penida. The island itself is famous for its beautiful cliffs and pristine coastlines. Both Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach are very popular sites here. However, you’ll most likely have this amazing natural infinity pool all to yourself on your visit. It’s a good idea to explore Broken Beach first nearby. Take in the splendour of its natural limestone arches over the blue waters. Then, head off to take a dip and perhaps a swim in the natural pools of Angel’s Billabong.
Rented scooters are widely available from locals starting from around IDR 50,000 to 80,000 or USD 4-6. They’re the best way of getting around to these far-reaches of the island. There are clear signposts along the dusty pathways that lead you to both sites. You’ll need to take the trail from Broken Beach by foot. Take extra caution at all times when descending into Angel’s Billabong. Avoid going down if it’s a high tide. Don’t attempt to swim there during these times – the otherworldly view is still worth a visit from the top. The waters from the open Indian Ocean are rough. The jagged rocks turn it into a treacherous combination (there have been fatal incidents in the past). If it happens to be low tide, carefully descend the sharp rocks. You can enjoy a dip in the crystal-clear pools amongst its jade seaweed-covered rocks. You can even swim around the whole lagoon to your heart’s content. It’s a good idea to come with reef shoes.
