Where is Angel’s Billabong?

Angel Billabong beach is located on the west coast of Nusa Penida, about a 5 minutes walk from Broken Beach, another popular attraction on the island. You can find the exact location on Google Maps by clicking here and the parking area by clicking here.

How to get to Angel’s Billabong?

To get to Angel’s Billabong, you first need to take a boat from Sanur in Bali to Nusa Penida. You can find lots of tour operators at the Sanur harbor or simply book your ticket online to avoid having to wait in line.

This particular company also offers shuttle service from Kuta, Seminyak, Nusa Dua, Sanur, and Ubud to the harbor but only departs at 8.45 a.m. If you prefer a more flexible schedule, I recommend this company instead.

Once you arrive on Nusa Penida, you can hire a private taxi with driver or if you’re on a budget, join a guided tour or rent a motorbike for about IDR 70k (US$ 4.80).

Note: The roads in Nusa Penida are in bad conditions and full of potholes. And while the island is much smaller than Bali, driving along the winding roads makes the travel hours between each attraction much longer. This is why I highly recommend getting a taxi with a driver and only renting a motorbike if you’re confident enough to ride on these roads.

What to Expect at Angel’s Billabong?

As you get to the parking lot, you’ll find several small warungs (local restaurants) where you can have lunch or a snack. From there, follow signs down the stairs and in a few minutes, you’ll arrive at Angel’s Billabong infinity pool.

The rocks around this area are quite sharp, so it’s a good idea to wear shoes instead of sandals.

It’s definitely a top photo location in Bali and one of those places on earth that almost feel surreal! The natural infinity pool is enclosed on both sides by tall jagged cliffs and fed by seawater!

Swimming at Angel’s Billabong is only allowed if the tide is low but you should still be careful and avoid getting too close to the edge. Unfortunately, there have been a few accidents in the past. People have been sucked into the ocean by the strong waves that sometimes appear without warning.

During high tide, the strong waves crash with extreme force into the pool and I can almost guarantee that you’ll be soaked from the water mists even if you’re standing on the top of the cliffs.

Entrance Fee and Opening Hours

There is no entrance fee to visit Angel’s Billabong. You only have to pay a small parking fee of IDR 5k (US$ 0.35). If you’re visiting as part of a tour, the parking fee is usually already included.

You can visit at any time of the day as it’s open 24/7.

Best Time to Visit

As one of the most popular attractions in Nusa Penida, Angel Billabong is featured on literally every group tours, this is why I recommend visiting in the morning, at least before 9.30/10 a.m. If you’re staying overnight, you can also visit during sunset when all the group tours have left.

Another thing to consider if you want to swim is the tide level. You’re only allowed to swim during low tide, so plan your visit accordingly.
