Paluang Cliff is another amazing viewpoint that is just a 5 minute drive from the famous Kelingking Cliff in Nusa Penida island.
Both Paluang and Kelingking show you the same thing, but from different angles and with different scenery. Both are amazing!
From the Paluang overlook you can see the other side of Kelingking cliff, along with the little green island sitting next to it, and Embon Beach at the bottom of the huge cliff wall.
There’s a neat little wooden “boat” you can sit in for free and take photos, and a wooden platform where you can pay a small fee to climb up and take pictures from above.
All in all, it’s a very underrated viewpoint, and I love it!
To the south, just 50 yards from the first viewpoint, there’s a second overlook where you can get some more epic views, especially with the help of a drone!
EXTRA: Pura Paluang Temple
Also known as the ‘car temple’, this is a weird shrine just a 2 minute walk southeast from the parking lot for Paluang Cliff. Check it out while you’re nearby!
How To Get To Paluang Cliff
Paluang Cliff is on the west side of Nusa Penida island.
It’s accessible by car or scooter, and takes about a 1 hour drive to reach from the main docks and accommodation in northern Penida. Be careful if you go by scooter because the road can be pretty rough and may be dangerous in some spots if you don’t take it slow!
There’s no parking or entry fee as of 2019. The parking area has a food and drink shack if you need to refuel.
