A traveler must have often heard about the Pink Beach on Nusa Penida. Besides being beautiful like heaven, this place also needs a struggle to be explored.
It doesn’t seem too much if I pinned The Hidden Paradise of Nusa Penida to Kelingking Beach or Kelingking Beach. This happens because you will feel so grateful for God’s amazing creation.
To access this part of the beach, a traveler is obliged to take a hill to the cliff more precisely. It might sound ordinary, but wait until the traveler himself does it.
When I arrived at this place, heat and dryness were felt, maybe because I was visiting here in the summer. Seen a crowd of people lining up to take pictures in one of the mainstays that shows the shape of the Kelingking Beach, shaped like a T-rex head.
T-Rex Beach sounds more suitable, maybe C or F Beach maybe. His cool name is Pinkie Beach.
According to the stories of local residents, what makes this place famous is foreign tourists. Although maybe the local people already know this place first, but who dares to explore more will know more.
Even though I came here with a backpacker group, but not all of them would want to go down, because the challenge of going down and riding more or less needed great energy. Luckily there is a friend of mine who wants to go down, embarrassed by foreign tourists who have a lot of traffic going up and down.
Along the way down, we do not forget to take some photos with amazing viewpoints, and if the traveler is lucky from a distance it looks like a manta. Hope someday you can swim with Manta.
Continuing on to the trip, mired several times, the slippery and dusty road did not undermine our intentions. When I began to despair, looking up, it was too far away, looking down not to the point.
Spreading the view down, seen some people trying to get down, imagining the beauty waiting down. That’s the motivation that keeps us going.
And happy feelings burst, when I saw the writing of Pinkie Beach, the sign of the place we were heading towards was getting closer. Finally we arrived. Soft sand greeted us, pure white and soft like snow.
The curling waves were chasing, making me who didn’t want to play water before, finally playing water. Being on Kelingking Beach feels like abroad, because more foreign tourists than local ones.
After being satisfied to play water, we must return soon. Because he said more time and energy to go up than down. And it turned out to be true what most people said, I was like climbing a limestone cliff.
The feeling of fatigue that I have to pay to reach the top again, but calm, if someone else can then I can too. that’s what I always whisper in my heart.
Advice from me, take photos to your heart’s content when going down to point to the beach, because when the ride is usually the energy has run out and is no longer focused on photographs. Don’t forget to bring drinking water, because of the hot sun and dust from the streets. I paused every time I felt tired, and drank enough to restore my energy.
