Peguyangan Waterfall In Nusa Penida, Bali

Peguyangan Waterfall is a group of tiny falls (more like a trickling stream) at the bottom of some cliffs in Nusa Penida, and you reach it by climbing down hundreds of steps on a rickety old wooden stairway.

If you like sketchy, remote hikes with steep paths to get your adrenaline going, Peguyangan is for you!

This travel guide will explain how to get there, and everything you need to know before you go!
Where To Stay
Peguyangan Waterfall Hike

Like most hikes in Penida, this one starts from the top of a big cliff.

It follows a bright blue stairway down to an old Hindu temple at the bottom of the coast.

Underneath the main stairway, you can even see the remains of an old stairway that broke and fell before the current one was made.

The drop-offs here are lethal, and the condition of the stairs at some points is questionable (the photo below only shows the entrance, not the bad part). Proceed at your own risk!
I did this hike awhile back in a soggy pair of sandals, and majorly regretted not having better footwear.
With that said, the conditions will hopefully improve at some point, and I have to admit I’m tempted to go back and fly the drone around to some of the amazing cliffs here.

Entrance Fees

The parking fee is 5k IDR (less than one US Dollar) as of 2019.

Since Peguyangan is also a temple, you have to wear a sarong to enter, but these can be rented from the parking area for 10k IDR or you can bring your own for free.

How To Get To Peguyangan Waterfall

The waterfall is on the southwest side of Nusa Penida island.

It’s accessible by car or scooter, about 1 hour drive from the Sampalan docks or accommodation in northern Penida. The road here is a bit rough, so take it easy.

From the parking lot, it’s a 30 minute hike down the stairway to get to the waterfall.

Nusa Penida Private Driver

If you want to explore Nusa Penida in the comfort and safety of a van with a driver, my top recommendation would be Klook.

Their price is 540k IDR ($35 USD) for a full day of driving and sightseeing in Penida (up to 10 hours) for 1-5 passengers. That's the total price for the whole van + driver + petrol! It's a steal.

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

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.
