Witnessing sunset at Crystal Bay Beach in Nusa Penida is a must for any traveller. Known for its great scuba diving, this small cove is nestled on the west coast of Nusa Penida Island. It is popular with tourist and locals who flock to swim in its calm crystal clear waters. I was able to visit Crystal bay to snorkel and for sunset. Cyrstal Bay is the best sunset spot in Nusa Penida.
I loved that it was not over crowded and that their was an equal amount of local to tourist. Watching the little children frolic in the water was so adorable. If you align yourself properly the sun sets right in the middle of a small hole in the island directly in front of Crystal Bay. This makes for an insane sunset and a one of my favorite that I have photographed. Don’t forget to check out our guide to Kelingking Secret Point Beach.
Sunset at Crystal Bay Beach in Nusa Penida
Crystal Bay Beach
This beach is a stunning place to relax and sunbathe. There are a few bean bags and lawn chairs where you can pay to use and places to grab some food. You can also snorkel here and it is stunning and the waters are calm. The locals are very friendly and not pushy like a lot of other Asian Countries.
Getting to Crystal Bay
If you are doing an island tour then this will probably be the last or first stop on your tour. We hired a private driver for the day and were able to extend our tour to revisit Crystal Bay for sunset. If you prefer to do it on your own you can rent a scooter for the day for 70,000 Rupiah.
Crystal Bay Costs
You have to pay a 5,000 Rupiah entrance/ parking fee. If you want to dive or snorkeling that will cost you depending on tour and time you select. But if you are visiting just for relaxing on the beach or sunset no extra cost.
