They are currently building an access down to the beachfront which is sure to become a tourist hotspot. Nevertheless, you can still enjoy the view of the coastal cliffs and crystal clear water from Korawa Beach lookout.
Where to stay
Most accommodation in Nusa Penida is located on the north of the island. There are a variety of accommodation types ranging from hostels to small beach front hotels. We stayed at the Jasmine Inn and found it was a good location although with limited food options. Semabu Hills Hotel is one of the nicer hotels in the area if you’re looking for a bit of luxury.

How to get to Korawa Beach Nusa Penida
Korawa Beach viewpoint is located next-door to Atuh Beach. Head to the parking lot on the right side of Atuh Beach and walk about 2 minutes until you can see the cliffs edge on your right. It took us just over an hour to reach Korawa Beach from the main strip on the west side of Nusa Penida. As you approach the beach, there are signs which will lead you to the parking lot.
The road is paved for majority of the drive along the coastline. However, as you approach the beach you’ll come across some steep parts with loose gravel and large potholes so take caution. The best way to get around is to rent a scooter which will cost you 70k IDR for the day. This way you’ll have the freedom to drive yourself around and explore everything the island has to offer. Another popular option on Nusa Penida is to rent a driver for the day to take you on a private tour.
Entrance Fee & Costs
Entrance costs 10K IDR per person and you’ll also have to pay 5K IDR for parking. This fee also allows entrance into Atuh Beach.
