Suwehan Beach is one of the most picturesque beaches we’ve been to in Bali and a must-visit for anyone with plans to head over to Nusa Penida Island. A lot quieter than many of the other beaches on Nusa Penida, you can enjoy this paradise practically all to yourself! 

We’ve put together this guide to Suwehan Beach with everything you’ll need to know, like the best time to visit and what to expect when you’re there.

Best time to visit Suwehan Beach

Suwehan Beach is beautiful no matter the time of day, however, by afternoon the sun dips below the cliff casting the entire beach in shade. If you want to work on your tan, we recommend visiting in the morning, plus the water will be insanely blue if it’s all lit up.

How to get to Suwehan Beach 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.

Suwehan Beach is on the southeast side of Nusa Penida, not too far from Diamond Beach and Thousand Islands viewpoint. It’s a good hour from Toya Pakeh to Suwehan Beach, and possibly longer depending on traffic.

What to expect at Suwehan Beach

The parking lot for Suwehan Beach is located directly across from a local warung (shop) where you can buy some snacks and drinks before heading down to the beach. You’ll also pass by the Suwehan Temple.

The pathway to Suwehan Beach is carved out of the cliff and takes around 15-20 minutes. The hike back up is a lot more tiring, so make sure you bring plenty of water with you. Once you reach the bottom you’ll have to climb over a bunch of rocks before stepping foot on some of the softest, finest white sand.

Suwehan Beach has some of the bluest water we have ever seen in Bali, with pristine white sand leading into the ocean. Depending on the conditions, you might get a small shore break for body surfing, but other than that it’s a very friendly beach to swim in.

We were lucky enough to only have a few other people on the beach with us, but Suwehan Beach is so spread out it really felt like we had the place to ourselves. This was surprising as most beaches in Nusa Penida and Bali are super crowded unless you go early in the morning.
