Thousand Island Viewpoint on Nusa Penida (Pulau Seribu)

The Thousand Island Viewpoint (Pulau Seribu) is a spectacular spot located on Nusa Penida, an island off the southeast coast of Bali. This cliff-side viewpoint offers panoramic views of the surrounding small islands or ‘thousand islands’, hence the name. From here, you can see the turquoise blue sea, dramatic cliff formations, lush green vegetation, and if you look closely, you can spot the iconic Raja Lima Islands and Atuh Beach.

There are a few things you need to know about how to get there, opening times, entrance fees and the treehouse.

We got ours for 70,000 rupiah per day with a full tank of gas. It wasn’t deal of the year but don’t expect to haggle down to 40,000 rupiah like you might manage on the streets of Canggu or Kuta. The actual pin on Google Maps shows the location as ‘Atuh King Five Nusa Penida’. Not sure what that means exactly but this is the Thousand Island (Pulau Seribu) Viewpoint according to the ticket man when we parked our moped.   BEST NUSA PENIDA TOURS! These are the four most popular Nusa Penida Tours. I’ve done all four and they are AWESOME! Thousand Island (Pulau Seribu) Viewpoint on Nusa Penida Firstly, you might be wondering what Pulau Seribu means and it actually just means Thousand Island in Bahasa (Indonesian). This location is sometimes referred to as Pulau Seribu and sometimes as the Thousand Island Viewpoint so I thought I would reference both. Thousand Island viewpoint or Pulau Seribu is one of my favorite spots on Nusa Penida. The parking and entrance was 10,000 rupiah per person, which is less than $1 USD (This may have increased).There is a small warung with snacks, drinks and simple hot meals at the top of the cliff. You won’t need to pack a big lunch as the hike is only short but it can get steamy so bring a water bottle. There are several viewpoints that have had fences and structures added to them for the benefit of tourists. There are huge drop-offs here so the fences are to keep tourists safe! To get to the first viewpoint you need to climb down the steep stairway for about 10 minutes. Once we reached this first viewpoint we were pretty awestruck. The view is incredible! We could see a small little empty beach sitting at the bottom of the cliff. It was paradise. BEST CAMERA FOR BALI The GoPro Hero11 is the BEST camera for traveling around Bali and Indonesia. Waterproof for snorkeling, island-hopping, hiking and beach days. Built-in stabilization for filming your travels and adventure activities 5.3K video and 27MP Photo to capture awesome memories of friends and family We continued on to the second viewpoint and then to the Instagram famous Tree House known as Rumah Pohon. There was nobody inside but the door was locked. It can be rented out on Booking.com or Airbnb but it’s literally just a wooden hut with a view for about $70 a night. We took a few photos here and debated whether or not we would stay out here. We all concluded it would be worth it for the feeling of enjoying the sunrise on the balcony of the treehouse! The final viewpoints are a shrine and there is a little hut offering some much-needed shade. The day we went we were almost melting so this was a good reprieve. If you are lucky enough to stay at the Nusa Penida Treehouse enjoy your stay but if not definitely still come and adventure at Thousand Island (Pulau Seribu) Viewpoint!

TOP 3 PLACES TO STAY ON NUSA PENIDA

I’ve written a massive, detailed guide about the Best Places To Stay on Nusa Penida….BUT If you just want me three favorites right now, here they are!

How to get to the Nusa Islands

There are three main options to get to Nusa Penida depending on your budget and how many logistics you want to manage. Here are the three options with the cheapest first:

  1. Book your ticket: Sanur (Bali) to Nusa Lembongan – Book a regular ferry that leaves from Sanur to Nusa Penida on the reliable website 12go. You then need to moped or taxi across to Nusa Penida via another ferry/boat.
  2. Book a fast boat: Sanur (Bali) to Nusa Penida – This option is great as you go direct from Bali to Penida without having to stop in Lembongan. This option is only slightly more expensive than stopping in Lembongan. This is my favorite option of the three and can be booked on Klook.
  3. Book a fast boat with hotel-pick up: Sanur (Bali) to Nusa Penida – This option includes a fast boat from Sanur (Bali) to Nusa Penida but also includes pick up from your hotel in Bali in a van. This option from GetYourGuide is a bit more expensive but takes all the hassle out of the transit from Bali to Nusa Penida.
