    Located in Nusa Penida.
    Of all the countries I've travelled to so far,I'd say Philippines stands out.My first opinion about Philippines was mostly about the immense tourism concentrated in Bali.Thus I dared to step out of the usual comfort zone & by doing that,I got a glimpse of heaven right there. :')

    I had come to know about the Angel's Billabong from a friend but she hadn't told me about this gem that was near the Billabong. Broken Beach gets its name because of a cave roof that fell in & the tides creating the cave walls such that no access from land is possible.:')

    I walked around the place for quite some time & didn't forget to click some snaps from the arc itself. The entire rugged beach looked as if it had come straight out of some really romantic movie. With no crowd around,this place was amazingly serene..just the way I like.

    Be careful of the tides.
    This is how the humongous Indian Ocean waves break into the already broken beach.My guide told me how people go for a swim here when there are low tides & how this could be done in the Angel's Billabong,the more convenient of the two. Thus I patiently waited for my turn there.

    Well,I wasn't going to let go off the opportunity to get the experience of a lifetime.Nope,I needed my filmy experience. Hopped onto the boat & went onto the broken beach itself. Again,the lack of tourism in this area gave me the chance to enjoy the space on my own.

    Now, Nature's Infinity Pool follows the Nature's Rules that one must follow if one doesn't want an everlasting date with the Indian Ocean. Looking at the huge tides,the thought of getting washed away did come to my mind but the lady in the pool made it look pretty safe!

    Indian Ocean gets fiery with its waves but the chances of huge waves getting into the Billabong seemed rare that day. I'm not fond of getting guides but a guide at a place like this would tell you about the right things to do. Nature sure is a pretty good architect. :')

    I stood there for a long time as I watched the different hues of blue that the ocean is decorated with. The waves gushing against the rocks but not the billabong made me think how the nature knows the exact way to work things out. I left my thoughts aside for a while & relaxed.

    Nusa Penida
    Nusa Penida is filled with such small beaches.In my childhood,I used to love beaches that were huge & full of activities but I realised how my preference had changed over the years. How a fisherman walking with a stick & a few people swimming in a tiny beach would give me peace.

    Just like that we hopped from one beach to the other & the entire vibe was way different from what one would find in Bali. No doubt Bali has it's huge positives but when it comes to serene beaches where the gushing sound of the waves would be clearly audible,it's this place. :')

    As I walked along the shores,I got a glimpse of the local life. People were busy doing their chores. Isn't that the beauty of travelling? It isn't all about knowing the culture & seeing the nature.It's also about getting a glimpse of how their life goes on even in your absence.

    This is probably the most insta-ed photo of this region or Indonesia in fact. Reaching here was one hell of a task,thanks to some really bad roads.One would then have to climb down the stairs to reach the beach itself but all of the struggles were worth every bit of it. :')

    Filipinos do know their music! There were areas where we would often come across people playing some good local music with instruments that I had never seen in my life. It was turning out to be the kind of trips I love the most : serene yet would feel exciting at every turn! :D

    There were local weaving workshops around where one would be able to see what the weavers are doing. It felt really soothing to see her work so diligently. With so many tourists' eyes on her,it was amazing how she kept her calm & continued with her work.

    I remember how I had spent a great deal of my time here. We were shown different techniques used by the local artisans to create products that would become synonymous with the area of NusaPenida. The sound of their instruments filled in the room with occasional tourist murmurs.

    The following day I woke up to a calm morning with the birds chirping all around. There is something about the untouched destinations.I mean it is good to have a proper functional tourist sectors,no doubt in that but at times,one does enjoy things the way they are intended to be.

    Our plan for the day was to have a fun-filled diving session at the snorkelling. I enjoyed our boat ride to the bay..I mean it is difficult to not enjoy the scenic boat ride when there are rock formations all around you.I couldn't wait for the corals themselves!

    By the time I was in Nusa Penida,I had almost become quite a pro at snorkelling. My previous worries of getting that deep in the water were slowly fading away & that in itself was quite an achievement for me. The colorful fish were right in front of me & looked really pretty.

    It was finally time to see the VIF of the area! It was my very first time seeing a Manta Ray.I had read about their enormous size but seeing it in a real was a whole different experience..pure exquisite. Fun Fact : Indonesia houses the largest sanctuary for the Manta Rays!

    Right before I went for snorkelling,the guide told us how killing the Manta Rays is banned in Philippines & the reason was pretty logical. They believe that the Manta Rays are going to bring in way more revenue through tourism than they're going to do such as food. :3

    Indonesian Cuisine is on another level altogether.It has the perfect combination of spices & flavors that would suit the palate of an Indian at least. :D Having some great lunches at the restaurants on the beach was one of my favorite things to do there. Again,not crowded.:D
  • Pura Penataran
    Pura Penataran
    This sanctuary compound is a standout amongst the most looked for after sacred places in Indonesia because of its notoriety for being a sanctum to the Earth and the Divine, along these lines interfacing the profound and physical. It had an antique touch to it for sure. :')

    As I tried to understand about the rituals that make this one of the most important worship destinations for the entire country,I couldn't help but notice the amount of fruits that's offered to the Gods & the way they had been arranged. It was so symmetric. :3

    Legend has it that petition and contemplation at this temple will give you that perfect spiritual feeling. Also I got a chance to witness the enchanting ceremony that takes place at the temple.The aura was filled with agarbatti fragrance & the holy faith of people present. :')

    Proper attire must be worn.
    I had only a day left & I got to know about a cave in which the locals worship. Now,these sort of places are the ones that MUST be visited because it has got adventure,thrill,beliefs,exercise..and everything else. The entrance itself was pretty hard to get through.

    Both Indonesian & Chinese Gods are worshipped inside the cave. I had to stoop down low to be able to squeeze and get through some parts. Inside,I found the spacious courtyard right in front of the main shrine. With the prayers being echoed,it was an unique experience altogether.

    It was my last in Nusa Penida & I headed off to one final round of beaches. I set my drone off to work & spent the rest of the day admiring the view in front of me.It was just the sky,the ocean & us for a moment there.I realised how the "crowd" factor affects a trip on a scale.
  • Nusa Penida

    Just like that,my getaway in Nusa Penida ended. I had gone there to specifically see the Angel's Billabong but in return I got to see Indonesia in a different light in a way in which I did not need to see the flare.The simplicity itself filled my heart with serenity I desired.:')
