Peguyangan waterfall

Peguyangan Waterfall is one of the nicest places to visit in Nusa Penida. However, many visitors never get to see it as it’s not on the day trip itineraries of most tour operators.

Peguyangan Waterfall is on the Southeast coast of Nusa Penida island (the other Nusa islands are Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Lembongan) which is off the coast of mainland Bali.
It is important to note that the name of this waterfall is often abbreviated to “Guyangan Waterfall Nusa Penida” Address: 6G99+FRR, Batukandik, Nusa Penida, Klungkung Regency, Bali 80771, Indonesia

How To Get To Peguyangan Waterfall, Nusa Penida Island?
You will first need to get to Nusa Penida from Bali. You can get a ferry or a fast boat from various ports on the mainland.

You can join a day trip to Nusa Penida too, but it’s unlikely that the Peguyangan Waterfall will be on the tour itinerary as it’s a bit out of the way and most people see the Peguyangan Waterfall Nusa Penida under their own steam or better to do this if you stay at Nusa Penida for 1 night or 2 nights.

To get there you will need to rent a motor scooter, we don’t recommend riding scooters in Bali and if you are going to do it – we recommend that you ensure you are 100% road-legal and have insurance.

The roads on to Peguyangan Waterfall Nusa Penida are not great and it’s all too easy to fall off and hurt yourself. However, there’s nothing like the traffic on Nusa Penida that there is in Bali, so if you go slow, you should be safe.

This attraction is a bit out of the way on Nusa Penida island and you will want a full tank of gas to make sure that you get to this location and then back again.

If you do get stuck on your journey, then the locals will usually be happy to help you out – but there’s no guarantee that you will encounter any locals out here.

What To Expect At Peguyangan Waterfall
This waterfall is part of the Pura Segard Kidul & Guyangan temple complex and as such it’s a sacred place. You will be expected to wear a sarong while you on the grounds here in Nusa Penida.

There are monkeys running about the place and while they are not quite as cheeky, aggressive and thieving as those at some of the better-known attractions in Bali, you should still be cautious around them – they are wild animals.
It’s best to avoid injury or bites in Nusa Penida as there’s not much in the way of a health service.

There are three natural rock pools at the base of Peguyangan Waterfall Nusa Penida but you are not allowed to swim in them.

The best time to visit is when there’s a ceremony taking place at the temple and the whole area comes alive with offerings and locals in traditional dress.

Steep Stairs
The blue stairs are very steep and you will find that they can get very slippery, particularly those that run from the temple to the pools.

We’d strongly recommend wearing shoes with decent grip to visit this waterfall as you don’t want to injure yourself at Peguyangan Waterfall, it’s a long way from any kind of medical service.
