Renting a motorcyle is the most practical option, and this will cost you about €5 or around 80,000 IDR per day and can be organised by your hotel. Look for vendors in Toyopakeh and Sampalan (or more likely, they will find you). You may be able to find a rental vehicle but they are not common.
Some visitors from Nusa Lembongan arrive with rented pushbikes – make sure you get permission to take the bike off Nusa Lembongan first. you should note that roads in Nusa Penida are rough, hilly away from the north coast, and in remote areas no more than stone-strewn tracks.
Local public transport is in small old bemos or on the back of a truck. These vehicles ply the north coast road with some regularity, but elsewhere on the island do not bank on anything.
However, be warned: you need to be a pretty experience on a motorcycle to negotiate the roads. Be prepared for dirt tracks, endless porholes and some pretty sleep, rocky ascents and descents. A lot of inexperienced riders do end up crashing motorcycle.
It is also possible to hire a driver on the island. Rod at Nusa Penida Explorers can arrange tailor-made day trips around the island.
Navigating your way around the island can also be pretty tricky. Road signs are sporadic at best. We relied heavily on Google Maps and a print out of the island. Some roads marked on the map are only big enough for a single motorcycle so be prepared to get lost and don’t be afraid to ask locals for directions – they are more than happy to help.
