Visiting & Photographing Kelingking Secret Point Beach | Indonesia


Visiting & Photographing Kelingking Secret Point Beach | Indonesia

T-Rex or Kelingking Secret Point Beach is one of the most Instagram famous spots in Indonesia. This secret beach is located on Nusa Penida Island off the coast of Lombok and Bali. I got to visit Nusa Penida for a couple of days and visiting Kelingking Secret Point Beach was one of the highlights.

If you plan to visit the beach prepare yourself. The trek down to the beach is long and very difficult. The path if you can call it that is steep and not paved so you will need to pull yourself up on top of branches and such. If you do go we suggest going early in the morning so you have the day to enjoy and don’t forget to bring lots of water and snacks.

How to Visit 

You can rent a scooter and make the journey to Kelingking, which is about 30 minutes from the harbor on your own. The roads are very bumpy and steep so I do not recommend this. Instead I would hire a car or take a private tour to make sure you have the best experience. We went down a bit to get some photos the best photos are from above so no need to go down if you can’t make the hike.


When to Visit

April to October are driest months with lots of sunshine. High season is July, August, late December to early January so avoid those months if on a budget. Whenever you visit you will surely get some sun you may just need to be flexible.
