Besides its beautiful, palm-fringed beach pRotected by lush hilltops, Crystal Bay is one of Nusa Penida’s snorkeling jewels. Offering magnificent, steep corals and hidden caves to explore, you may even spot a passing reef shark, or a manta ray or two! In recent times, this hidden gem of an island in Nusa Penida is beckoning the swimmers and romantics alike to get some sun and sand on the beach of Crystal Bay. The best part of diving here is the crystal-clear waters of as much as 30 meters, giving the name of Crystal Bay beach. Buy a refreshing drink or some snacks by the beachside shacks at Crystal Bay while you watch the world go by, and the waves gently hit the shores. Close to this beach is the Pura Segara Penida temple, adding a touch of reverence to the scenic beach.
