Nusa Penida Transport, Drivers, & Tour Guides – How To Get Around

Nusa Penida may not be as big of an island as Bali (in fact it’s 1/27th the size in square miles!), but you can still expect to spend hours driving around the island.

Just like in Bali, you have two main transport options for exploring Nusa Penida island: motorbike rental, or car with driver.

This blog post will break down what you need to know about Nusa Penida transport and each of your options!

Nusa Penida Day Tour Packages

First of all, if you’re on a tight schedule or want to skip the extra steps involved in arranging your own trip to Nusa Penida, Klook has prearranged day trips to Penida for as low as 600k IDR, complete with hotel transfer, island tour, lunch, and same day return to Bali.

We’ve used Klook for lots of day tours and activities around the world, and they’ve been great! Highly recommended.

Nusa Penida By Scooter

Scooters are easy to rent from your accommodation (or other places) in Penida, and you can expect to pay about 75k IDR (~$5 USD) per day with a full tank of gas.

As an inexperienced driver, I personally would never ride a motorbike on the broken, winding roads in Nusa Penida, but some bloggers might argue with me on that one. The choice is yours, just watch out for potholes and give your horn a good beep before turning any corners!

Lots of people do travel Nusa Penida by scooter, so it can’t be too terrible.

Nusa Penida By Driver

When I explore Penida I’ve always done the car with driver, and the prices are roughly equivalent to what you would pay in Bali – 550k IDR ($38 USD) or less – for a full day of driving.

All of the drivers on the island use vans capable of taking at least 4 passengers, and the price is per car for a full day of driving (not per passenger).

List Of Nusa Penida Drivers

The following is a list of drivers you can connect with in Nusa Penida island.

I haven’t used quite all of these drivers, but others have recommended them publicly and they all seem to have good reviews. My top recommendation would be Klook. We’ve used them for lots of tours and activities, and they’re great!

If you know of others to add, feel free to send me their info! You can also try asking your accommodation for a driver.

Nusa Penida Hotels
Where We Stayed

We stayed at Saren Villa on the north coast of Nusa Penida, and paid 240k IDR ($15 USD) for a private double room with cold A/C, hot shower, and good WiFi.

This is one of the cheapest options in Penida, and it's in a great location near the best restaurants! We were happy.

Prices may fluctuate from time to time, so just keep an eye out for a good deal.
