Why is it called Broken Beach?
Broken Beach takes by translate the local name “Pasih Uug” into English.
Behind the name Broken Beach, there is a story behind the name.
About 300 years ago this area was a rural village with about 70 inhabitants.
Life here is the same as village life in general.
Until one day a resident here got a giant snake.
The snake was killed and eaten by everyone in this village.
It turns out that the snake is not an arbitrary snake, the snake is the incarnation of a god.
God Destroy Village
The god was angry with this incident and came back and became a small child carrying a broomstick and stuck it in the middle of the village.
The child shouted to all the villagers, for those who are able to pull out this broomstick will get a prize.
All residents tried to pull it out but no one was able to.
Then the boy pulled out the stem and the water came out of the hole of the trunk and grew bigger and bigger until it drowned the whole village.
That story spread throughout the Nusa Penida community about the name Broken Beach which means the beach of a destroyed village.

A large hole on the surface of the earth in which there is seawater and there is a hole that connects the open ocean.
Currently, the activities that can be done are enjoying the view and taking pictures in several corners of this place.
After enjoying the east side, we walked around this big hole. Arriving in the west, we will see manta rays swimming on the edge of the western cliff.

On the west side, there is also a photo spot with a cliff background and a western hole.
