Atuh Beach is situated at the southwestern tip of Nusa Penida Island. The location is quite hidden from the settlement. To arrive at Atuh Beach you need along the path between the cliffs and ravines on the left and right during your trip. It is located in the beautiful bay with white sand and on the left side is Juntil Cape which is stick out into the sea and on the right side stick out into Labuan Ampuak continued to the east is located Gili Batu Melawang, Gili Batu Pedasan, Gili Batu Abah and Gili Batu Metegen. On the end Easternmost of Juntil and Gili Padasan capes are really ideal because in front of the two capes are passed by alternating current from the north to the south (and on the other way) that is followed by groups of big or small fish, especially after and before the full moon and several days before and after Dark of Moon or Tilem, these days are the lucky days for fisherman.
The natural cave and the swallow nest can be found on the south side of Labuhan Ampuak. The swallow nest is the very rare commodity and the price is very expensive. In the mainland of Atuh Valley the situation of the land is very fertile and the Atuh Temple is located there, the temple is especially a place to worship to the God of the sea (the Segara Temple). The ceremony is held every Sasih Kedasa or the tenth month of the Balinese calendar (Isaka) where the community came from Bendem Village and the Tanglad Village and the other village.
