The legend behind the beauty of Nusa Penida Broken Beach .

According to legend or a brief folktale about the formation of Broken Beach Nusa Penida, it originated from one of the families living right above the gaping huge hole.

In the past, around this beach inhabited by several farming families, their homes were scattered, apart from those living on land that used to be before the hole process which lived on the edge of a cliff even across the cliff, which is precisely on the opposite rock, said to have been one mainland with a big hole position right now.

The beginning of the story of Broken Beach originated from a farmer who wanted to plant corn.

In the past, planting corn in Nusa Penida generally used tools in the form of sharp-pointed wood to make small holes in the land where corn will be planted.

When the farmer made a tool from wood that had been obtained from the forest around the coast, it was then taped using a machete under a large tree and on the root of the tree.

But the strange thing that happened when the farmer's machete hit the roots of the tree, the roots of the trees affected by machetes were injured and bleed.

With the blood coming out of the roots of the tree, the farmer is even more curious to know better while telling his neighbors and friends.
Come together, people who live around this place where the bloody roots are.
And without thinking about the roots of the tree are cut into pieces and then distributed to all residents to be cooked and eaten.

After nightfall, incidentally the night before the full moon, most of the residents gathered at the farmer's house who discovered the bloody root while telling how delicious the bloody wood root was.

Not long after that came an old man who was old and slum, but no one knew the old man.

The old grandfather immediately gave advice to all who were there, for the future do not do anything like this afternoon carelessly cutting and dividing beef belonging to others.

Some of the residents who came in a loud voice yelled at the grandfather and did not accept his advice which also indirectly said that citizens stole cows.

Thus to test the truth of the citizen that he did not steal cattle as alleged by the old grandfather, the grandfather then took out a stick from coconut leaves and immediately planted it on the ground, after the stick was stuck in the ground;
The old grandfather said, "Hey people here, whoever is able to pull out this stick and this stick can be pulled by it, it indicates that the people here are honest and don't really steal my cows".
After the grandfather finished saying so, fighting over each other the people present wanted to pull out the stick, so that no one was able to pull out the stick.

Because no one is able to pull out, then the grandfather said again.
"Now, because you are not able to pull out my stick, that means you are not honest with yourself anymore and see now I will pull out this stick.
The grandfather immediately pulled out the stick he had stuck on the ground, after the stick was pulled out the water was released very quickly from the sticky soil sticking in,
water comes out at an unthinkable speed,
even the sea water flared to the west of the island so that it destroyed much of the land and houses of the people who were there,
even large holes arise very quickly so that the house around the stick is lost immediately as if swallowed by the earth.
The grandfather was missing without a trace, the people around the beach were also lost in the water and the waves of sea water turmoil.

Such is the bit of folklore circulating in the western part of Nusa Penida, so that the place was named Broken Beach.
