Teletubbies Hill, known locally as Bukit Teletubbies, is an epic viewpoint in Nusa Penida, overlooking endless rolling hills. If you didn’t get the reference, Bukit Teletubbies bears a striking resemblance to the setting of the iconic children’s show.
If these epic hills are on your Nusa Penida bucket list, then keep reading as we detail in the guide below exactly what you can expect.
Best time to visit Bukit Teletubbies Hill
You’re best off visiting Bukit Teletubbies in the early morning or late afternoon. There is absolutely no respite from the sun, so it can get very hot. We visited during golden hour right before sunset. Also, if you’re wanting to see the hills all lush and green, then you’ll want to visit sometime in the rainy season (November – March) or before dry season hits its peak in October.
How to get to Bukit Teletubbies Hill Nusa Penida
The best way to get around Nusa Penida is by scooter – this island is just not made for cars. Most accommodations will be able to arrange a scooter rental for you, and if you hire for multiple days you can usually haggle down to around 60,000 IDR per day. If you’re not comfortable driving a scooter, a popular option is to hire a car with a private driver.
What to bring to Bukit Teletubbies Hill
There is no entrance fee for Bukit Teletubbies, but as it grows in popularity we wouldn’t be surprised if this changes someday soon.

What to expect at Bukit Teletubbies Nusa Penida
We had spent our day exploring the east coast of Nusa Penida and drove our scooters to Bukit Teletubbies just as the sun was beginning to set. The pin on Google Maps is rather nondescript, with not much differentiating it from any other spot.
We pulled off the side of the road to take in the view of Bukit Teletubbies. There were a few teenagers coming back from the hills where they had been flying a giant kite, but once they left we had the place to ourselves.
You can either enjoy the view of Bukit Teletubbies from the lookout by the road, or you can hike through the hills along winding pathways. Truthfully, we were already exhausted from our day at Diamond Beach so we decided just to send the drone up to get a better view.
From this vantage point, we could see just how vast and spread out Bukit Teletubbies is, with many rolling hills and farming terraces carved into the land. We could see that the grass was already starting to get yellow, so try to time your visit closely to either side of the wet season when the grass is bright green, otherwise it turns brown and dies off.
