Nusa Penida: A Night to Remember

So here we are.. 5 lonely but not so lonely cowboys exploring the beauty of what has been so breathtaking lately in instagram..  NUSA PENIDA..

Photo on the left of taken in GPS coordinate: 8°45’13.00″S 115°32’18.00″E .. it was somewhere on the way to suwehan beach from cyrstal bay.. thought the background was the teletabis.. no?

I complete all pictures with the GPS coordinate.. as this what has been missing on some blogs that I read.. you can copy and paste the GPS coordinate to google map to see the exact location on the map..

we were all never been to nusa penida.. internet gave us a lot of things.. but it never complete.. the most crucial for me is the GPS coordinate.. hotel booked through agoda.. coco resort it was!.. as my understanding from the net.. nusa penida has 2 harbors for bali boat.. maruti express boat is going to the harbors on the east of the island.. caspla is more to the middle north of the island.. maruti has a nice time departure from sanur (9:00) and it’s a lot nearer from our hotel.. but it was fully booked!.. so we took caspla instead.. 7:30 departure.. took about 30 min to our hotel by motor bike.. on the boat from bali took a little bit more than 1 hour..

been reading some blogs, instagram, pinInterest, asking friends.. I find some pictures and try to find the location of that pictures.. considering our time, I decided to go 5 spot only..
1. Angel Billabong (on google map)
2. Pasir Uug (on google map)
3. Crystal Bay (on google map)
4. Guyangan Water Spring
5. Suwehan Beach (which is IN FACT WRONG !!)

got to the caspla harbour.. rented 4 bikes.. (1 of us too chicken to ride a bike haha).. went to hotel .. unpacked stuffs such as whiskey bottles!.. yeah.. we have 3 of them!.. we decided to go to crystal bay for brunch.. only took 10 minutes from our hotel.. but it was not like what i have expected.. this is like the well-known famous spot in the island.. i thought it has more crowd.. more shops.. or more coffee shops.. in fact.. we were the only tourist in that time (+-9am).. and only 1 “eatable” warung.. food was good enough btw.. view? so so.. best for sunset probably?

then we decided to go to suwehan beach.. we started from the furthest spot.. it took so long, hot, and hard trip (2 hrs) to get to suwehan beach.. and we couldn’t get the spot that we wanted! holy cow!.. there was a girl selling drinks at the parking space of the beach.. we asked her about the spot.. showed her some pictures.. she has no clue.. she took us to her land instead.. and asked us to promote the view on the net..

This is the view from the girl land.. beach below is Suwehan Beach

so we were told it might be in Atuh beach which is about 30 min from suwehan beach.. off we go! we got some nice spots (not the spot that we wanted tough).. see atuh pic below.. below the cliff is a nice spot called pulau seribu.. it was almost 4pm.. we had to go to pasir uug and angle billabong.. trying to get there before dark.. so another long, hot and hard damn road trip.. missed the pulau seribu spot 🙁

the road to Angel Billabong and Pasir Uug was so rocky.. up and down really steep.. but the good thing.. it is on google map!.. the view was phenomenal ! it’s so worth the effort to get there ! heard this big land own by one of country conglomerate.. just wondering how come they are so fast knowing this part of the world? uberchopper?

Arrived in the hotel around 8pm++.. swam.. dinner.. We planned to finish the whiskey at night.. but it was too tiring after those long, hot and hard trip.. I was too sleepy.. only a guy kept drinking while 4 of us dreaming.. where was his energy coming from? *wondering* ..

on the next day.. the plan was to relax and chilled after a drunken night.. but since we didn’t get to drunk.. felt so energizing.. we were all curious about 2 spots that we left.. motor bike is too hot, hard and tiring.. so we asked the hotel to take us there.. well.. we are not that Adventurous after all! spoiled old men youuuu!

Driver knew both spots!.. Suwehan was totally wrong! what we after was supposed to be near Kelingking Beach.. way far from Suwehan beach!.. and it is on GOOGLE MAP! it’s called Cliff Manta Point! there was a 90 degrees stair to go down to get a better spot from the pic we had below.. but we thought not worth the effort.. it’s a polite way to say we actually scared to go down! haha!

Guyangan was totally not in google map.. some maps I found on the web even gave me wrong point.. the famous pic of guyangan is the natural pool beside the cliff facing the ocean.. to get to the pool from the parking lot.. we had to go down the stair for about 30min.. see my pic below.. yes that kinda stair.. some from wood.. some from steel.. at the bottom of the stair is the ocean! after we arrived to the pool.. there was a sign that it’s prohibited to use the pool.. oh mannn.. !
