Nusa Penida is a small island off the southeast coast of the main island of Bali, next to Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. Quickly becoming one of Bali’s most popular attractions, this island paradise is a world away from high-paced city life. Nusa Penida Island is just a 40-minute speed boat-ride away from Sanur, Bali and is where visitors can explore the stunning vast highlands, and roam around the spectacular beaches decorating the edges of the island. Beyond the hills and beaches, is the fantastic marine life breeding in the pristine seas encircling the island.
There are many other gems to unveil in and around Nusa Penida, such as Crystal Bay, Diamond Beach, Broken Beach, and Kelingking Beach, with the latter recently selected as the Most Instagrammable Beach in 2021. The Teletubbies Hill, a vast, open green hill, situated about eleven kilometres to the southeast of Kelingking Beach, is another must-visit spot. Nusa Penida is also known for its coral reefs around the island which house some of the most unique sea creatures in the whole world, providing a special experience for divers and snorkelers.
“The team and I are looking forward to meeting you at Māua, a hidden treasure on Nusa Penida. Māua is a Heritage brand depicting Togetherness and Strength of People. Let’s experience the old, undiscovered Bali: restful, authentic and magical, this is where you’ll encounter the mystery and magic of Bali. Let’s discover some vast expanses of translucent water where the diving is simply spectacular, as well as some breath-taking cliff top scenery and sweeping sea views”, commented Sebastien Menesguen, Māua Nusa Penida’s General Manager.
