Nusa Penida, Indonesia

Kelingking Beach dazzles with its stunning cliff formations, powder-white sand, and blue-green sea. It's easy to get to and has ample parking, yet still maintains a secluded, relaxed vibe (bonus: it also has restrooms). The clear water is perfect for snorkeling and exploring underwater life, and the sunsets are truly photo-worthy.
