Broken Beach is a scenic coastal formation on the southwestern edge of Nusa Penida. The spot is marked by a hilly rock arch, which is the star landmark of the area. Also known by its local name, Pasih Uug, it's a great spot for travel photographers and anyone who wants to enjoy stunning panoramic views. 

You can watch the waves crashing in from the Indian Ocean and, if you’re lucky, you may spot silhouettes of giant mantas near the surface of the deep blue water. The adjacent area is also home to gray long-tailed macaques.

Discovering Broken Beach

The journey to Broken Beach is an overland adventure through Nusa Penida’s rugged limestone terrain. Most of the pathways are rocky and unpaved. The majority of people rent a motorbike to reach the beach, and it’ll still take around 2 hours to reach this corner from the main harbor area in Nusa Penida’s north-western tip. Once you get to Broken Beach, you’ll be rewarded by a truly sweeping seascape.

You can combine your trip to Broken Beach to see more unique coastal features, such as the beautiful Angel's Billabong. There are local vendors selling drinks and light refreshments. Some sell beer, so you can sit back on a cliff edge with a cold one to take in the view.
