Nusa Penida is a stunning island off eastern coast of Bali, home to some of the most beautiful spots I've seen. Diamond Beach and Atuh Beach are two of the most well-known and most breathtaking beaches on the island. They are located on the eastern coast of Nusa Penida.
How to Get to Atuh & Diamond Beach
You can reach Diamond Beach and Atuh Beach by scooter as most of the roads on the eastern side of Nusa Penida are paved, however, the final 2km are very rough gravel/unpaved roads and are not pleasant to drive. Only drive this road if you feel confident on a scooter! Alternatively, there are plenty of drivers in Nusa Penida and you can either book a car through your accommodations or with a tour company.

Diamond Beach is home to the insta-famous staircase down the beach. Unfortunately, my SD card decided to delete all my photos of me on the staircase, so you'll have to pretend it was amazing... because seriously it is. We did climb all the way down to Diamond Beach along the stairs chiseled out of the white cliffs - be careful as the bottom can be quite narrow and requires a bit of arm strength!
