Bulian Beach is a neat hidden inlet on the west side of Nusa Penida island.
The beach is covered with seashells and rocks, but some of the shells are pretty nice, and it’s just a cool place to explore and chill.
Aside from a little sign in the trees near the entrance, you could hardly tell anyone had ever been here. Great place to get away from the crowds!
There’s no parking or entry fee as of 2019.
How To Get To Bulian Beach
Bulian Beach is on the west side of Nusa Penida island. It’s accessible by car or scooter, about 1 hour drive from the main docks and accommodation in northern Penida.
Be careful if you go by scooter because the road is rough and may be dangerous in some spots if you don’t take it slow!
When you arrive at the parking area, just head left (south). The foot path down to the beach is just a 5 minute walk or less!

Day Tours To Nusa Penida
If you’re on a tight schedule or want to skip the extra steps involved in arranging your own trip to Nusa Penida, there are a number of companies that offer prearranged day trips to Penida for as low as $50 USD, complete with hotel transfer, island tour, lunch, and same day return to Bali (or Nusa Lembongan).
Where We Stayed
We stayed at Saren Villa on the north coast of Nusa Penida, and paid $19 USD for a private double room with cold A/C, hot shower, and good WiFi.
It's not the cheapest option in Penida, but that price includes free breakfast and a great location near the best restaurants! I was happy.
Prices may fluctuate from time to time, so just keep an eye out for a good deal.
