How do I get there?
First, you need to get to Denpasar, the capital of Bali province. The fastest and most popular way to reach Denpasar is by flying into the Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar). There are several options on how to reach Nusa Penida from Bali mainland. From Sanur to Nusa Penida, the easiest and most comfortable way is by speedboat from Sanur harbor (30-40 minutes). From Padanbai to Nusa Penida, you can take a ferry boat, motorcycle or by car. From Kusamba to Nusa Penida, the easiest way is by speedboat (20-30 minutes).

If you are trying freediving for the first time or signing up for a course, you will need to go with an instructor to teach you how to hold breath longer and to equalize perfectly under the water.
Do I need to train up?
You have to be able to swim and be in good physical condition.
What's the best time to go?
The best months to visit are January, February, March, April, May, November, December
We recommend the above period because you would have diving is good from november to may when the sea is calm. manta rays can be seen from nusa penida all year-round. the quietest months are from february to may and this is also the time when water temperatures are at their warmest, making it a great time for beginners!.
Any tips for what to do in the area?
The main points of interest of Nusa Penida includes: Kelingking Beach: that's the one that looks like t-rex! This is THE spot to take photos of the green 'dinosaur head' swallowing blue waves. You can walk down the "spine" of the dinosaur to get to the beach. But do be careful as the path is not great condition. Crystal Bay: has some of the clearest waters and the healthiest corals and fish life around. This makes it the perfect spot for snorkelling. Broken Beach: another marvel of nature, this pool of water is surrounded by limestone cliffs. Angel Bilabong: this is a natural infinity pool! These very impressive clear waters rival that of any pool. Wall Beach/Wall Point: another clear watered beach that is great for snorkelling with great fish and coral life Gamat Bay: a more wild and secluded version of Crystal Bay; it takes a bit of time to walk down an overgrown path to get to the beach, but it's totally worth it. Great for snorkelling as well! Manta Point: this the place to see the majestic manta rays!
