Guyangan Waterfall : but where is the waterfall ?
The place is called Guyangan Waterfall or Peguyangan Waterfall on Google Map. It is one of the very beautiful places of Nusa Penida. But if you are expecting a cascade of water falling from the cliff you will be disappointed. The only small waterfall you will see is the overflow pipe of the small water tank in which the pumps come to draw the spring water that will be distributed on Nusa Penida island. Guyangan Waterfall is fairly easily accessible, about 45 minute drive away from Crystal Bay or Toyapakeh.
A giddy descent to Guyangan Waterfall
Guyangan Waterfall is an awesome place and holds its success of three factors. First the blue staircase that goes down along the cliff and allows beautiful pictures. Then, the breathtaking view of the cliffs of Nusa Penida island. And finally, down the stairs and after crossing a small temple, a natural pool sculpted into the rock of the cliff. You can cool off after a descent that could be described as dizzying. And above all you can safely face the waves that break on the edge of the cliff. Guaranteed sensations !
A colorful temple
You will also see downstairs a rather nice temple. Do not forget to take your sarong because otherwise you will have to rent one at the top of the stairs before going down. I am not sure who is represented by the three statues dressed in blue, white and red. But I’m pretty sure it has nothing to do with the French flag. If you know more, please tell me in a small comment at the bottom of this article !
