Location of Kelingking Beach Nusa Penida
Kelingking Secret Point is located in Karang Dawa Hamlet, Bunga Mekar Village, Nusa Penida District. The beach is under the cliff and not too wide.

Even so, traveling here is very satisfying because in Indonesia it is not easy to find views like at Kelingking Secret Point.
