Best time to visit Diamond beach

Diamond beach can be visited any time of the year! However it’s best to travel in this area during dry season to avoid rain ruining your plans. Dry season on Nusa Penida is between April and October, both being the should months.  I would highly advise you to come before 10am to enjoy the beach with less crowds. It is not as crowded as Kelingking beach.
