Atuh Beach is unique compared to most beaches in Bali. It’s flanked by two spectacular tall cliffs: Labuan Ampuak on the right and Tanjung Juntil on the left. The view from these cliffs is amazing, with crystal blue water, crashing waves, tall rocks, and white sand below your feet.
To access the beach, you will need to hike down steep and long staircases. It’s physically tiring, especially climbing back up. But once you step on the white sand beach at the bottom of the staircase, you will be rewarded with the most gorgeous view of the Ocean with turtle like cliff island protruding out of the water.
Best of all, there is rarely anyone at the beach, so you can have it all for yourself!
Atuh Beach is located in the eastern part of Nusa Penida. Google Maps, and many traveling articles may say that you need to drive for 1 hour to reach the beach (from Toyapakeh Harbour).
But here’s the truth, the actual trip will be about 2 hours instead due to the bad condition of the road that are populated with potholes.
